Enjoy Self-Care Sundays with these 5 ideas

Is your busy schedule so hectic that you often forget to squeeze in any time for yourself? One day a week devoted to self-care may help you to stay on track.

Even though you could practice any day of the week, Sunday offers advantages. Since you're probably home from work, you have more control over your time. You also get a chance to prepare for a fresh start every week. 

Simple, fun, and free activities are often the most nurturing. Create your own Self-Care Sunday rituals using these ideas.

  • Put your phone away. Step away from technology. Each Sunday, leave your phone turned off or muted for at least a few hours. You should also limit the number of times you check your messages. 
  • Be well rested. Although it's tempting to sleep in on weekends, sticking to a schedule is more effective. Get a good night's sleep so you are refreshed on Monday.
  • Spend some time in meditation and prayer. Make time for mindfulness and spiritual growth. Spend a few minutes at a time and extend your sessions as your concentration increases.
  • Find something funny to read or watch. Laughter is the best medicine. Carve out some time Sundays to read a funny book or watch a 30 minute sitcom on television. Not only does your body benefit from frequent laughter, you’ll also be lightening your mood which is bound to have a positive effect on anything you do.


Make Self-Care Sundays a reminder to take care of your well being regularly. Through this process, you will be able to live a fulfilling life and deepen your care for others.
