Last week has been crazy busy for me, so I was desperately looking forward to Sunday, which I always try to keep free from any obligations. It’s the perfect day to just relax and to prepare for the new week at the same time. ❤️
This is how I like to spend my Sunday:
1. Have a leisurely breakfast or brunch.
As weekdays can be a rush, I like to spend more time cooking something which I wouldn’t have time to cook on a weekday morning. I don’t like to rush, I like to be mindful when I eat.I savour my breakfast, eat slowly. Really taste the food. Enjoy what you eat. This works for me anyway.
2.Get out of your house.
If you spend all day inside when you feel the onslaught of boredom, you will inevitably be more bored. You see your walls all the time. I love being outside and keeping fit, so I usually either mix it up on weekends with my workouts. Today I opted for a quick run, feeling chilled to the bones now ha. 😦
3.Maintenance and Cleaning the house
Sundays gives me chance to catch-up on all of the housekeeping items that may have been put off during the week. Cleaning and decluttering, for me, are mindfulness practices. They are not chores that I dread, nor ways to strive for a perfect living environment, but ways to practice living in the present moment. As such, they are some of my favorite things to do.
Nothing like the smell of freshly baked bread/cookies that fills the kitchen and the living room. It’s just so cozy! Not sure what exactly I should make today though, Im craving fudge brownies YUM! 😛
5.Pursue a Passion
We all need a hobby that is going to recharge our batteries and spark our passion. Whether it’s writing, painting, dancing or hiking. You should use your free time on days like Saturday or Sunday to do activities that you normally can’t during the week. Ideally, you should find a hobby that either lets you blow off some steam, gets the creative juices flowing, or refreshes you in some way. I personally like to write and read (atm, Im so hooked onto Levison Wood’s Walking the Himalayas, his such great adventurer)
Have a mindful day x
