As I write this, I am sitting on the sofa catching up on The Apprentice. It’s 3pm and I’ve only just got out of bed, had a bath and changed out of my pyjamas. There’s no denying that today, I have been well and truly lazy.
When we moved into our little house nearly six months ago, lazy Sundays were non-existent. Partly because we had so much to do on and around the house, but equally because I had such a strong feeling of guilt. Why should I be laying around whilst there’s washing up that needs to be done, a bathroom that needs to be cleaned and bed sheets that need to be changed?
It’s taken me a long time and a lot of work on myself to get to this stage where I no longer feel guilty. Right now, there’s a load of washing in the machine that needs to be put out, there’s a big pile of washing up and to be honest, the house could do with a bit of a tidy. But, today is about me. I went out last night, I am in chronic pain today and tonight is family time. All of the other things can wait.
If we don’t take the time for ourselves whether this is a lazy day, a pamper day or even a few hours spent exercising, we’re not truly looking after ourselves, are we?
Now, I’m off to go and make a cuppa and grab a slice of cake…happy Sunday!
What are your plans for today? How do you choose to spend your lazy days?
