“Rainy Sunday” Home Activities

9:00 am, Sunday morning.

It’s your day off of work or school, and you just want to relax. You don’t want to lay around all day watching TV, but you also don’t want to leave the comfort of your home to find something only mildly satisfying to occupy you. I call these types of days “Rainy Sundays.”

There are many activities that you can engage in from home. I have compiled a list of four awesome ones. Bear with me, haha!

  1. Build an blanket fort:

I have been creating blanket forts since I was a little girl. Even now, I currently have a fort set up in an empty room that my fiancè and I aren’t using.

Blanket forts are super easy to build, and really fun to hang out in. All you need are:

  • Comforters or medium-to-large blankets.
  • Any sturdy furniture to sit the blankets on
  • A makeshift bed or floor to lay on the ground
  • Pillows!!

Blanket forts only take 10-20 minutes to make, depending on their sizes. Overall, it’s a fun activity that leads to a nice, relaxing treat. I recommend 10 out of 10!

2. Clean your living space:

Whether you own a home, rent an apartment, stay in a dorm room, or live with your parents; cleaning your living quarters can be a very satisfying activity.

Cleaning also takes time to complete. For some people, it may take a day to finish cleaning. For others, it may only take a few hours. Either ways, it still makes for a good Sunday activity.

3. Cook a delicious meal:

I don’t know about you guys, but I absolutely love being in the kitchen.

Get together with your family, friends, or make a meal by yourself! Cooking is a great activity, as it involves a lot of creativity and knowledge in the kitchen. If you’re looking to do something time-consuming and rewarding, I recommend this activity!

4. Try mind, body, and soul activities

What are mind, body, and soul practices? Any form of relaxing home therapy that allows time for self-reflection.

There are many ways to engage in these practices. The most common are:

  • Meditation
  • Yoga
  • Savasana (Final pose, or “corpse pose”)
  • Religious acts

As I said earlier, home therapy is not limited to the above list. Whatever helps a person relax and think, is their form of MBS practice.

Feel free to try these four activities out on a nice, lazy Sunday. I hope you enjoyed this article, and thank you for reading.
