3 Things For Yourself

Because Sundays are for rejuvenation… 

To break my Sunday cycle, I started off by telling myself this: You are a beautiful, hard-working, selfless being, and you deserve this time. Treat yourself.

So I did. Three things, every Sunday, for myself. I’m sharing them to give y’all some ideas, and hopefully inspire you to take a day off — completely — and cater to your needs. Follow along with this series if you feel like your “you” time is missing.

Slow Down.

Instead of rushing through your morning, take it easy. Enjoy whatever lazy routine you may have, without any anxiousness to get out the door. I spent the morning sipping coffee and gathering old rolls of film that needed developing. I put time aside for awhile, and it was lovely. I’m saving the speedy mornings for Mondays.

Art Crawl.

When is the last time you decided to check out some art? Unfortunately, it’s been a while for me, until now. I’m going to make a point to dedicate some time to it. It’s something that I know I should do more often, because each time I do, I feel inspired and eager to go create something beautiful. Detaching yourself from your own art can help you explore new ideas that have been hiding deep within. Go buy a ticket to the art museum. Visit a free gallery. Or, if it’s beautiful out, grab your pup and seek out some street art.

Create Space.

Now that your creative juices are flowing, come home and put them to good use. I remember as a little girl, my mom and I would rearrange my bedroom furniture once a month. It made my room feel completely different and refreshing, which helped my mood while I spent time in it. So now it’s your turn. Rearrange a corner in your home. Add some quirky touches to it. Keeping my environment as beautiful as possible is super important to me, so a quick refresh is needed from time to time. I have this mid-century modern dresser that I picked up at a flea for almost nothing. I took all the arts and crafts supplies out of the middle drawer and stuffed some plants in it. It totally brightened up that area, and gave me tiny bits of happiness each time I walked past it over the last week.

I’m challenging you to clear your schedule today and do 3 things for yourself. You work your butt off, and deserve some time for yourself. If you try this out, let me know how it went, and if you feel rested and rejuvenated, let’s keep this up.

My Sunday’s over already, but I definitely did slow down. My friends and I took things slow chilling out at a café over a cuppa!

Love this series! Thank you for the ideas.

I love this series too! It’s so important to take time for yourself and do thing you actually enjoy doing. Few weeks a go I went out to this art museum and it was so inspiring I decided to make it my sunday routine; it’s been 8 weeks so far and it’s amazing.

I’m glad she’s taking time for herself and getting re-inspired. I want to go check out artwork now!

Art crawling is indeed a great idea for rainy Sundays. Are there any online galleries you could enjoy with just a click or two?
