There’s a saying that goes: A girl in her bed on a Sunday are an endless love affair. Well ain’t that the truth. Just as the Lord rested on the seventh day, I do like to designate my Sundays not only to prepare for the week, but also to rest and caught on all the sleep that I missed during the week. So I start my Sundays with a fresh face mask, a warm and relaxing shower, a quick and simple breakfast and my bed.
For most of us, our bed is this magical place where anything can go down (mind out the gutter people). Seriously, it’s like the Barney bag, but it seems that everything you need for the day magically finds it’s way on to your bed and in the crevices of your bundled up blankets. So if you’re planning to spend your day as I am, in bed, here are five things you can do that don’t require you to get up except for bathroom breaks, food and to stretch your legs.
Let’s Go to Church
So I’m learning the importance of fellowship while on your spiritual walk. I’m learning, but I still haven’t stepped foot in a church yet this year, however I still like that I can watch all of my favorite preachers right from my laptop or my phone via Periscope or Livestream. It wouldn’t be possible for me to fly out to Texas every Sunday to see Joel Osteen. I certainly can’t afford to fly out to Singapore to see Joseph Prince and as cool as One Church is, LA ain’t happening every Sunday either. Even though I am not there to witness the sermon and lessons in person, they are still as powerful as if I were.
Read a Book
Although I don’t watch much tv, I’ve gotten too busy to read a book too and have substituted that for Netflix because it’s quick and easier. I wouldn’t be myself if I wasn’t lost in some good fiction to crack open that book that’s been sitting on the shelf since last year that you haven’t read yet. I currently cracked opened Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard I can’t wait to finish it so I can get the next book in the series. I usually like to keep my music playlist at random when reading, so I’m in the mood for a bit of folk. Aside from Jessica Day being my kindred spirit, I love Zoey Deschanel’s band She & Him.
Deep Condition Your Hair
For the last year I’ve been doing protective styling such as braids because with an on the go lifestyle that I had, it was easier to wake up and go, but my poor hair has been neglected. The thing I love about deep conditioning is that even though the bottle directions say leave in for 15 minutes before rinsing you can leave it in all day for a softer, cleaner feel after rinsing it. It’s a natural hair thing and when you have 4C hair like mine, it takes a lot longer for the moisturizing components of a product to really soak in those locks. If you already have clean hair, you can always grab a cream moisturizer and twist your hair in bed as well.
Do An Ab Workout
For the lazy girl who really wants to workout but getting to the gym is just too much of a hassle. There are several workout that can be done without even getting out of bed. That is a new level of Sunday laziness in my book, but effective nonetheless.
Watch Fuller House
I started watching this and at first I thought it was a bit cheesy, but it did channel all the nostalgic feels! I love how it’s studio and live recorded. That’s when television was the best. I hope they decided to reboot shows like Good Times, A Different World, Family Matters, etc. I would have a reason to watch tv again.
So that’s how my Sunday is looking. Even if you decide to do nothing on my list, the key point is rest. Let yourself relax a bit, take a day to recuperate.
