There’s no denying the fact that absolutely everything in the world is busy. In between all the strands which make up my working life alongside the social aspect it can be tough to have any true relaxation time. So it’s not all that often that I get a proper lazy weekend, or even a proper lazy day, but when it does happen I am all over it. There’s a fine line to walk between doing absolutely nothing of note and having a lazy day, but here are some of my favourite things to do on a lazy weekend.
Not having to set an alarm
I am all about the sleep and while I get a reasonable amount during the week (around 7-7.5 hours) anytime the option of a lie in happens I will grab it with both hands. I have a super comfortable bed and one of the best things about a lazy weekend is not having to set an alarm as I always feel so much better when I wake up naturally even if I don’t end up sleeping for much longer. As I get up much earlier during the week now a natural sleep for me doesn’t tend to last longer than 9am but it means I have the rest of the day to myself.
Making a feel good breakfast
I am a huge fan of going out for brunch but when I’m having a lazy weekend the last thing I want to do is go out and have to face the public so I would usually do a food shop before my weekend in preparation. Having a decent sized breakfast always makes me feel happy as I don’t sit down and have more than toast or cereal during the weekend so fried eggs and mushrooms are always a must for me, sometimes a cheese and mushroom omelette if I’m feeling adventurous.
Finding a new series to watch or binge watching an existing one
I can easily binge watch a good series in a day or so as proved when I went through Great News and Insatiable on Netflix within around 48 hours max. If I know I have a full weekend I will generally finish up whatever series I am watching and start another easy watch one which I can have on but I don’t need to concentrate too much on. I love having shows on in the background when I am just lounging around on the sofa and it’s an achievement when Netflix asks if you’re still watching.
Having a bath
I am a huge bath fan but during the week it can be tough to find the time to have one so during a lazy weekend I love making the time to have one. I will use a mass of products from bath salts and oils to fizzing bombs and bubble bath, the more the merrier when it comes to feeling indulgent. Generally I will lay in the bath with a face mask on, a magazine in hand and a drink sitting on my bath caddy, pure relaxation.
