Everybody loves Sunday. From school going children to adults in the professional world, everyone eagerly waits for this one special day for the entire week. It is the day you get a break from your boring, tiring and monotonous schedule. No need to wake up early or rush through your morning rituals in order to reach your workplace on time. Sunday is when you finally get the time to do what you like, go where you want and met up with friends and family.
Sunday is the reward you get after working tirelessly through the entire week and obviously you want to make the most out of this day. Weekend is going to be here in no time and you still don’t have any plans?
Here are 12 ways to make your Sunday fun and interesting.
10.Reconnect with the child in you
A very efficient way to de-stress and re-energize yourself over the weekend is by spending some quality time with children. If you are not a parent yet, go visit your nieces/nephews or play with the kids in your neighborhood. Re-connect with that child in you and re-live those good old care free days when every day was as relaxing and fun as Sunday.
Like your body, your mind needs rest too and one of the best ways to attain peace of mind is meditation. You may not usually have time for spirituality but you can make it a habit to start your Sundays with a little meditation. This is an age old way to refresh your mind and help you improve your power of concentration which in turns will affect your productivity and efficiency. Meditation also helps in fighting stress and depression and has several other health benefits.
8.Know thy neighbor
When was the last time you went over to your neighbor’s place for a chit chat or called them over at your house for dinner? Now that you finally have some time in your hand, how about using it to socialize with your neighbors! From an enjoyable picnic at the community park to a bingo night, there are so many ways in which you and your neighbors can make the weekend super fun!
Even if you not really the kind of person who likes to stay up to date about the trends of the fashion world, it is okay to give your wardrobe a stylish make-over every once in a while. Get rid of all those old, worn out, faded and ill-fitted clothes piled up in your wardrobe. Go on a shopping spree with that chic friend of yours who gives the best fashion advice! This is a really enjoyable as well as useful way to spend your Sunday!
Now you must be wondering what can be fun about wasting your Sunday on cleaning the house? Well sometimes clearing out the mess and arranging things in an organized manner can actually make you feel better. Stop being a hoarder and throw out/ give away everything which you have not used for quite some time. Give your room a makeover by rearranging the furniture, painting the walls or adding some pretty tea-lights! This will not only make your Sunday worthwhile, it will also make you feel good for days to come.
If you want to use your day off to relax and enjoy but you are feeling too lazy to go out, binge watching is the right thing for you. Choose your favorite movies or television series, grab some popcorn and brace yourself for a day full of entertainment! All you need is your television or laptop/computer and internet and you are good to go.
4.Indulge in social work
One of the best ways to make your holiday interesting is doing something which will not only make you feel great, it will also bring a smile on someone else’s face. Do some volunteer work to make the most out of your Sunday. Visit an orphanage and spend some time with the kids. Go to an old age home where you can meet amazing people with lots of stories to share. You may have a great job which enables you to earn enough to live a good life. However, there are thousands of people out there who are not as fortunate. Take out some time to help those in need. It will bring you peace and make you feel good about yourself.
3.Family and fun
Well, this is your chance to make up for all the anniversaries, birthday parties and other family functions you have missed owing to your busy schedule. Organize a fun get-together with your family members and relatives. Invite all the cousins, uncles and aunts you haven’t seen in ages despite living in the same city. Now, this may require some extra efforts (you now..cooking, cleaning and stuff) but reconnecting with your loved ones will definitely be worth the hard work!
2.Meet your buddies
Remember the good old college days when you got to meet your friends every day? Unfortunately, things change once you step in the professional world. You are busy with work and so are your friends. Weekend is the time when you finally get to catch up with them. Rather than hanging out at that same old café or restaurant you guys usually dine at try to think of something new and fun to do. You may go on a day long road trip or call in your friends for a barbeque night! How about a pool party or an early morning photo walk ? Good friends and a great plan…that is all you require for that perfect evening.
Sometimes, it is important to take a break from your busy schedule and spend some quality time with ‘yourself’! Pamper yourself with a nice long steam bath, manicure and pedicure or get a new hair cut! Do the things you love doing but usually don’t have the time for. Read, cook, dance, listen to some soothing music or go for a nice long walk. Show yourself some love because you deserve it. This will re-energize you and help you gear up for the busy week ahead.
Alas! All good things come to an end. Sleep, distress, socialize. There is so much we would like to do on a Sunday. Unfortunately, it passes by way too quickly and soon we find ourselves fighting with the notorious Monday morning blues! But don’t let that beat you up. Weekend will soon be knocking at your door again!
