Sunday’s are the perfect day to rejuvenate, reflect, and regroup.
If you’re looking to start your week off on a productive note, here are 6 self-care activities you have to try to experience The Perfect Self-Care Sunday.
1. Get Your Beauty Sleep
No need to set an alarm, let your body naturally wake you up. After countless hours of missed sleep throughout the week, you deserve some self-care. If sleeping in isn’t your thing, try taking a power nap midday. I’d recommend anywhere from 20 minutes to 1-hour max so you don’t disrupt your sleep schedule at night.
2. Enjoy a Delicious Healthy Breakfast
My fave go-to breakfast is an açai bowl or a fruity smoothie. Fuelling your body with something nutritious will keep your mood levels balanced throughout the day. I’d highly recommend you try it out, especially since you have the extra time on your hands.
3. Get Your Body Moving
Put your favourite song on and dance like no one is watching. Exercising doesn’t have to be boring. Take the effort to set aside 15- 30 minutes to stretch your body or go for a walk at sunset. If you don’t know where to start, try following along with a workout video on YouTube. And always remember: a little goes a long way.
4. Doll Yourself Up
Pamper yourself for the week by upgrading your style. Paint your nails a fresh colour or try out a DIY body exfoliator scrub. I love making my own scrub with some brown sugar and coconut oil. So simple yet so effective. You can find easy scrub recipes on Pinterest for your lips, face, or full body.
5. Improve Your Character
Reading a few pages of a self-development can leave you feeling inspired to make good changes. My favourite self-improvement books are Atomic Habits and The Power of Now. But if reading isn’t for you, try taking the time to plan some goals for the week.
6. Relax Your Mind
Doing nothing is a form of self-care and is needed at times. Turn on your bath, throw in some lavender epsom salt, and allow your body to relax in warm soothing water. Finish off your evening with your favourite movie. If you don’t have one, comedy never hurts. Plus, laughing is the best medicine you can give to your body.
