Do you have a Sunday morning routine?
Sundays are my rest days and I love how simple yet productive my Sunday morning routine is.
I am a person that thrives on routines so I basically have a routine for everything. I have a morning routine for school, a study routine, a skincare routine, a monthly reset routine, and even a goal-setting routine!
Since the weekend is only 2 days long, unfortunately, I like to use my Saturdays to clean, meal prep, and hang out with family and friends and Sundays to rest, plan, and finish off anything I didn’t get the chance to do the day before. if you will like to have a glimpse of what my Saturday morning routine consists of, then keep on reading.
My lazy yet productive Sunday morning routine
Wake up late
I don’t set my alarm on Sundays because I like to sleep in till I feel ready to get up. For just one day in a week, sleep without setting an alarm. Let your body rest properly. You will wake up feeling very happy, grateful, and full of motivation to get things done.
Have you been craving spicy noodles but didn’t get the time to make them? This is the perfect time to do so. Have a healthy breakfast and take your time to eat. I love to go through my phone while I’m eating my breakfast.
Make my bed
Take your time to make your bed. I like to change my sheets when I’m making my bed on Sundays just to start off the week with clean fresh sheets. This is totally optional but make it a habit to lay your bed every single day.
My showers on Sundays are long. This is the time I like to shave, wax, and exfoliate. I have a post on my favorite body care products so make sure you check that out if you need some ideas about what to get. I know a lot of people like to play music while showering but I’m not really a fan of that so I prefer to catch up on my favorite podcasts while at it. Sometimes, I watch some Netflix as well.
I love my skincare routine. I have seen a huge improvement in my skin since I started getting more serious with my skincare routine. I am currently obsessed with Korean skincare products especially Korean serums because of how affordable and effective they are. If you don’t have a skincare routine, this is your sign to create one. I have a whole post on how to create the perfect skincare routine. If you already have a skincare routine then this is your sign to become consistent.
When I was first starting out, I had issues with consistency. One thing that helped me a lot was using a skincare tracker. I had it in my planner so I always get reminded to do my skincare routine when I opened it.
Plan for the week
After I get ready, I like to sit and plan out my week. I make use of both a physical and digital planner for this.
For my physical planning, I use a simple notebook where I jot down ideas, daily to-dos, and random thoughts. For my digital planning, I use notion. I am obsessed with Notion and This is the current notion template I am using.
I have a few posts about Notion like how to use notion as a student and my notion set up as a student. Both are pretty detailed so if you will like to learn more about Notion, read those.
I don’t like to set too many goals for each week so I try to keep them as minimal as possible.
Plan my outfits for the week
If you always don’t know what to wear every morning, try planning your outfits in advance. This has saved me so much time in the morning. I have an empty side in my closet where I keep my outfits for the week. I still cross-check the night before but when I do this every Sunday, it makes the whole process so much easier.
I can’t function in a dirty environment so I always do a 30mins cleaning. During those 30mins, I do the dishes, wipe down the kitchen counter, put things back to where they belong, and sweep any crumbs. I have a deep cleaning schedule which I follow during every monthly reset routine but when you clean daily, it makes deep cleaning a lot faster.
Netflix and chill
Once all that Is done, I spend the remaining day catching up on my favorite shows. I am loving K-dramas lately so if you have any recommendations, let me know in the comments. I just finished the business proposal and hometown cha cha cha. They were soo good.
