After a long work week, Sundays are the best day to do nothing and love it. Lazy Sunday activities can include just laying in bed to online shopping, whatever your heart desires, as long as you are being lazy.
1. Buy some flowers
Go to the local market and pick up a pretty bunch of tulips. There’s something so beautiful and uplifting when you have a bouquet of fresh flowers in the house. Don’t you think?
2. Wear no make-up
Nothing feels better than a naked face. Who needs all that gunk anyways? Hey, it’s called lazy Sunday for a reason – zero effort required.
3. Bake chocolate chip cookies
Soft, gooey, warm-baked cookies. Definitely our favorite pastime.
4. Lay around all day
Make a date with your duvet.
5. Make banana pancakes…
…for breakfast. A cup of freshly brewed coffee and a plate of fluffy pancakes? That’s how to spring someone out of bed.
6. Watch old films
Dirty Dancing, Now and Then and pretty much every Julia Roberts movie out there. Timeless fun.
7. Wear something snug
Forget tight tailored blazers and rigid black trousers. Today is your day to wear WHATEVER the hell you want. We’re going for the BF’s shirt.
8. Do some laundry
We know what you’re thinking. Chores – on a Sunday? Hear us out. You know as well as we do that there’s nothing more satisfying than clean crisp laundry. The smell is gorgeous and the effort? Minimal.
9. Drink wine and be happy
If you’re up for it, drop by the local bar and enjoy a few drinks. Otherwise, stay in and crack open a bottle of chilled wine with a friend. Even better, go all out and make summery homemade cocktails! Yum.
Now’s the time to catch up on some fantasies. Get lost in a story or catch up on world affairs.
11. Catch up on sleep
Most of us don’t get the recommended quota of sleep (8 hours per night). In fact, we’re lucky if we do, right? On Sundays you can turn off that alarm, sleep in, have a nap, go to bed early – anything – there are NO rules on your day off.
12. Pamper yourself
Day to day stress can wreck havoc with our beauty regimes. Revitalize your body and treat yourself to some major TLC. You deserve it!
13. Get some music therapy
Tune in to your favorite station, crank up the music and daydream for as long as you want. There’s nothing as de-stressing as setting your mind free.
14. Learn a new recipe
Today’s the perfect day to learn a new recipe via Sunday morning cooking shows, of course. Girl, put your chef hat on and get whisking!
15. Go online shopping
Hey, a little retail therapy never hurt anyone. Besides this means NO long lines, whining men or those panicked crowds. Fab-u-lous. And you can get discounted gift cards to your favorite stores to save money!
16. A roast dinner
If you’re going to go anywhere on your lazy Sunday, make it the bar that does the best roast dinners for miles around. Definitely worth getting dressed for.
17. Have a sexy session
Whether you’re with someone or alone, nothing beats a sexy love-in on a lazy Sunday morning.
18. Organize your computer
Get your laptop to hand and clear that desktop. Takes a few clicks, but will feel like you’ve accomplished something with your day.
19. Call an old friend
Get snug on the sofa, pour yourself a glass of vino and facetime your special BFF that lives miles away. Best use of time ever.
20. Do a Netflix marathon
Always wondered what the fuss was with Breaking Bad/Mad Men/Girls? Time to do some serious catching up and what better time to binge than on a lovely lazy Sunday?
