Sunday has long been one of my favourite days of the week. I think it’s the kind of ‘no pressure, do-what-you-like’ vibe the day brings. There are literally no rules to what you should be doing on a Sunday & I think that’s why I love it so much.
As a wise individual once said ‘A Sunday well spent, brings a week of content’ and this is something I absolutely believe to be true.
A Soulful Sunday to me, is one that makes your soul truly happy and sets you up ready for the week ahead. So, as I love them so much, I thought I would share some of my tips on how to have a truly soul fulfilling day.
Breakfast TimeFirst things first it’s breakfast. Whether you choose to wake up early or enjoy a bit of a lie in, a good breakfast (or brunch depending on the length of your lie in) is a Soulful Sunday must. Find a good playlist and take your time making it. Pancakes with all the trimmings, bacon butties or a full English are usually my Sunday brunch go-to’s.
The Great OutdoorsWhatever the weather, get out your old converse and go for a big old walk. Fresh air always seems fresher on a Sunday! And it’s a good way to clear your mind ready for the new week. Whether you go with family, friends or alone I think getting at one with nature is a must – and it will help that full English go down with a little less guilt!
Sunday Movie Marathon
After a long afternoon walk there is nothing like getting home, putting the kettle on and settling down to a good old fashioned ‘Sunday’ film. The 80’s classics are some of my faves – Back to the Future, Beverly Hills Cop, The Goonies – anything feel good and easy to watch is a yes from me.
Me (or you) Time
Every Sunday, I like to indulge in a mammoth pamper session to make me feel fresh for the coming week. Everything from a face mask and hair mask, through to a mani/pedi and an extra long bubble bath with an added lush bath bomb or 2.
Last, but definitely not least is my favourite tip for ending your Soulful Sunday – getting tucked up into freshly washed sheets!! In my eyes, there is absolutely no other way to end a perfect day and make sure you get your beauty sleep ready for Monday morning.
