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.
It feels good to bop out and about in something that makes you feel good. I snagged a pair of these gingham bow slip-ons at the beginning of the summer, and they have been my weekend go-to, making me feel both a little flirty and sassy. Wear something today that bumps up your confidence levels a bit, whether it be some fun sandals, a bright colorful headband or some quirky shades.
Take A Dip.
Those childhood memories of summer pool days began to slip away from me once I moved to the city. Recapture them. Find a local pool, grab a day pass, and spend an hour (or five) by it. Sit under the umbrella with a good read, or just splash around a bit. A little exploration led me to find that many city pools will let you join for a day pass. A little sunshine can do wonders.
While the honey sun is hitting golden hour, pack up a picnic and go for a long drive, car windows down. Crank up the summer playlist you have perfected, and drive until you find the right spot. For me, it’s an open field where the sun sets over some rolling hills. Let the dog run around, spread a blanket out, and enjoy dinner wherever your cruise led you.
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.
