There is always something new to feel and learn each Sunday! However, I am sure there are times where you wake up and you know it’s going to be another boring Sunday. Your friends are busy with their own families or perhaps travelling the world with their other friends. You may still be staying with your parents so you can’t invite anyone over for a cup of tea, or it could be that it is already the end of the month and you do not have enough money to do anything fun. You are not dating anyone and the idea of looking for someone new on a dating site makes you feel “argh”. Or maybe you are just someone who knows you are over-spending simple me- time. When you think about your perfect Sunday, it could involve sleeping in, going out for brunch, and then binge watching Netflix. So here is my list of things you can do to make your boring Sunday more bearable!
1. PURSUE A PASSION
Is there that dream you always had in mind? Or is there a hobby that you would like to finally begin? Whether it’s writing, reading, painting, or travelling the world, there is always free time like Sundays to do activities that you normally can’t during the work. I enjoy travelling so I usually use Sundays to plan for my next trip and research on places that I can explore.
I am sure we already know the long term benefits of exercising. While there’s no denying that we all need to be physically active, the busy work week may not leave us with too much to squeeze in a workout, especially on weekdays. Therefore, Sunday is the best time to catch-up on your physical fitness. Whether it’s heading to the gym, riding a bicycle, playing a game of basketball, or just running the treadmill at home, Sundays offer a great chance for you to get in a bit of exercise before you head back to the daily grind. I personally love work out with boxing gloves and punching pads because the work out not only trains me physically, it keeps my mind calm and focused.
3. COMMUNITY WORK
There are many of us who really do enjoy me time so much that we are on our own too much on Sundays. We have to understand that it is just as important to interact with other people. It does not only widen our network and social circle, it creates a good support mentally. If you are a mother, local community events aren’t just a way to get the kids out of the house, they are also the perfect opportunities for all of you to network and make new friends. A packet of Rice is a a self setup group that creates bi-weekly meal box distributions to low income needy residents and senior citizens who residing in rented 1 or 2 rooms flats. I joined them a few days ago on a distribution sponsored by Celestia Faith Chong. You can read more about the planning of this event at https://www.theladiescue.com/4773-2/ .
4. WEEKLY MAINTENANCE
Maintenance can mean a lot of different things to ladies. It could be cleaning up our office table, our home or even our cars. Some would take time out to go for a massage, facial, hair cut, pedicure and manicure. Or you could be like me, cleaning up my emails, social media accounts and messages on Whatsapp that I might have accidentally “ignored”. No matter what exactly maintenance means to you, Sundays provide us a chance to catch-up on all of the housekeeping items that may have been put off during the week! I take this time to also plan for my up and coming week, so that I know exactly what needs to be done. Especially if I am cooking, then I would have to pen down the ingredients needed for the personalised menu that I come up with!
Practices theses and I am sure in no time, you would spend your Sundays fruitfully! Through your changes, you would impact others along side with you. Just remember, there is always something new to feel and learn each Sunday!
