Sunday Soul Glow: Rituals & Routines To Start The Week
In this fresh new year I've made a promise to myself. One to take even better care of my person than I have in years past. To get done the things that need to be done and not fret about the ones that I'm not able to get to. And to give myself permission to rest, relax and be still/lazy.
Ridiculously lazy weekends are ideal but no longer a reality. Back before we had kids we could lay in bed and around the house all day not really doing anything. And it was fabulous. now, that we have kids and they have birthday parties, rehearsals, and more that require us to be out of the house for hours at a time, lazy weekends are few and farther between. But, a key tenet to my theme this year is glow and the best way for me to glow is to nourish my soul both inside and out. That means making Sunday Soul Glow a thing in my house.
I'm focusing on being still when I have the opportunity and using that time to do things that make me smile and help ease me into the week ahead.
so I've come up with a three point plan to make my Sundays all about getting my glow on.
Soak: Making Sundays my day for a long evening soak makes the most sense for my life. The week day evenings are kind of hectic and I don't want to have to rush my luxuriating so I can finish washing clothes,so I'm saving my soaking for Sundays. It's also a great way to wind down in the evening before bed and I think it will help waking up on Monday less jarring. Maybe.
Sip: Tea, coffee, champagne. Whatever seems to be fueling my soul in that moment while curling up with a book that nourishes my spirit and my mind. I do love hot tea on a cool day and this winter-ish weather is my favorite for pouring a steaming cup. But weekends are also for mimosas + coffee so that is definitely staying part of the routine.
It may not happen all at once but I make it happen. Well I'm making it happen.
