Lazy Sunday

I apologise that I already broke my daily post attempt. Yesterday was a busy, but fulfilling day and I simply did not have the time.

Here we are, it is Sunday. To some, today will be spent nursing a hangover. To others, it is a day to relax and gather some energy for that dreaded Monday morning. Sunday for a lot of us is the joy of spending time with our families and looking forward to consuming a good old Sunday roast.

To me, Sundays are always a day of resolution. I think back to how the past week has fared and ponder what I can do in the following week to make it a good one. Often Sundays bring me the motivation I need to have a really productive week and that is always a good feeling.

This Sunday started off late and usually I would feel guilty for that fact. I am trying a new approach where I just try and shrug it off and make the most of what is remaining of the day and make the following day more productive to make up for it. I have found that cutting myself a little slack actually encourages my productivity, instead of putting me in a state where I do not feel worthy enough to do anything useful. So far so good.

Today will be spent as a guilt-free lazy Sunday. There might be a movie watched, there will definitely be some good food cooked (Chicken curry) and I am just going to allow the day to go where it wants to and try to enjoy the ride. It is not the norm for me, but it is worth a try at least.

How will you be spending your day today? Do you have any Sunday rituals, or do you just take the day as it comes? Whatever you are doing, I hope you are having a wonderful time.

Until next time, stay brilliant.

  1. Today is relax day after workout. Sundays are my day to lay on the bed and read while my son plays video games. If it is nice enough than I may go for a walk. All in all though, it is a wonderful day to do absolutely nothing.

  2. As far as I’m concerned, you never need to apologise to us for a missed day. I certainly enjoy reading your updates, and daily posts would be great. But on the other hand, forced writing is not the answer either. Write when you have something to write about, and we will be here to read and react. If you don’t post, we will assume you are riding up thoughts and sentiments for a future post. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks for understanding. I mostly post as and when I feel itโ€™s worth it to do so, but I wanted to set myself a challenge and try and do one every day for a month. At the moment it is more life getting in the way than not having something to say, but I guess that can be viewed as a good thing. I hope youโ€™re having an enjoyable Sunday. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Hey, Sara! I love Sundays. I use an app to plan my ‘Things To Do’ for the coming week, and I also spend some quality time in prayer. I make a point of resting (but sometimes do some cleaning and chores), and of course write my Sunday Summary blog post.

    I love how honest you are in your posts about the challenges you face and how you’re dealing with them. It’s really encouraging, as I have days where I get down about not being productive enough too, so can really relate.

    Chicken curry sounds amazing. Enjoy!

    1. It turned out pretty well. I little on the spicy side, but thatโ€™s just my thinking because I canโ€™t handle it. What app is it you use for your to do lists?

      I hope youโ€™ve had a great weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Ooh I do like a spicy curry! The app I use at the moment is Google Keep. Check it out, it’s free. Unfortunately I’ve had a few technical problems the last couple of days when moving notes around (which I’ve reported) but in general it’s a great app!

  4. Sounds like a great plan for this sunday, and the food does sound delicious, I love curry chicken! ๐Ÿ™‚
    I too find that just giving yourself some slack can often improve your motivation to work a lot. If I tell myself to do something I might put an hour into it and then feel like I don’t feel liek working any more. If I do something without any real demand on myself to do it I don’t think to hard about it and often get more done. I think it’s a good way to live life that way!

  5. Sunday is our quiet/hangout day, too. Today, we completed our taxes, went to the grocery store, and now I’m getting ready to start meal planning/prepping for the week. It’s so much easier to cook everything in advance, so that we don’t have to cook hardly anything during the week when we get home from work. We’ll probably watch a movie later tonight. Cheers!
