You crib all week saying you need a break and can’t wait for the weekend to come. For those of you who work 6 days a week, Sunday is heaven. And yet, most of the times you end up wasting the Sunday and then you go all ‘I didn’t even realize it was Sunday and it’s gone already. Wwhhhyyyy’. Well, you need to ask that to yourself. Yes, Sundays are the only days you get to sleep all day long but there’s so much more you can do that day. No, you don’t have to do big things and say, “Sunday ko bhi kaam karu?” There are small things that are so much fun which will gear you up for the coming week.

Here are some stress busting ways to spend your Sunday with!

  1. Go for a refreshing morning walk

Waking up a little early and taking a morning walk is going to do all the right things to your mind and body. Plus, waking up early means you have a longer Sunday in hand. Yayy!

3. Eat a meal with family

If you are not that into cooking, simply eat your lunch or dinner with the entire family. Share some jokes, make fun of your siblings, tell them about how your week went and just eat to your heart’s content!

4. Go watch a play/musical event

Instead of going for a movie, spend a Sunday watching a play or attend a musical event. These are not just great alternatives but will give you a nice dose of talent you won’t be seeing anywhere else.

Call all your friends, neighbours, colony kids and anybody you can think of for a match of football/cricket/basketball/throwball or whatever you like. This is a great way to meet up with everybody and have lots of fun as well.

6. Give yourself some ‘Me time’

If you are a working mommy, you need some time for yourself. Just sit back, do a quick pedicure/manicure, apply some nail paint, read a book, dream a little and you will feel much happier!
