LIFE: Something About Sundays

This past weekend I found myself having some serious downtime which is rare but was needed. Yesterday in particular I had a lot of time to myself and it got me thinking about Sundays. I'm not sure about you, but when I was younger I used to call them 'Blue Sundays'. Sundays left me with feelings of anxiety and dread, I kind of felt like nothing useful came out of Sundays and it just left me dreading Monday.

All that's changed more recently. Sometimes I wake up with anxiety, but that's usually down to too much booze on the Saturday...I won't learn. Aside from that though I make the most of this sacred day of the week and this past Sunday was particularly fruitful. I woke at 7.30, got my gym kit on and headed off the the gym, hangover free (I should bottle that feeling and remember it every time I plan to drink in excess, but no!) I then headed to do a food shop, and then I cleaned my place top to bottom. Sounds dull right but all this was done before 10.30 and it felt bloody good. I hate the cliche "A Sunday well spent brings a week of content" but it's so frigging true!

By the time I was done I sat on my arse for a good few hours doing absolutely nothing other than relaxing and watching episode after episode of Power on Netflix, catching up on social media, reading my latest Psychologies mag and eventually cooking myself some dinner. I sat there appreciating the way my place was coming together, I felt good about hitting the gym and it provided some much needed time to just chill. I said farewell to Sunday with a feeling of contentment at a day well spent and ready for the week ahead, which takes me on a little adventure to Spain on Thursday!

What's your favourite way to spend a Sunday?
