8 Things to Do on Lazy Weekends

We all have been through those lazy weekends when you’re not in the mood to do anything, just let the time pass and enjoy it. Or maybe one of those lazy weekends when you are so lazy that you get bored with everything in a second.

Things to Do on Lazy Weekends

1. Sleep in

There is nothing better than being able to sleep in. Sometimes I like to let my alarm set to wake me up at 7 a.m. just to turn it of and roll on the other side of the bed. It feels SO good. You should try it!

2. Breakfast in bed

Don’t let your sleepy mood run away and have breakfast in bed. You have all the time to prepare a fancy breakfast and enjoy it in the bed, while watching cartoons. Am I the only one who still enjoys watching good, old cartoons like Tom & Jerry or Scooby Doo?

3. Pamper yourself

Because you deserve it. Your mind, body and spirit deserves it. A bubbly bath will always be refreshing. Here are 7 steps to the perfect pampering evening, just in case you’re not sure how to do it.

4. Read

I love reading. And I would love to spend hours lost reading a really good book. You can still be in bed, with a nice cup of tea, enjoying a really good book. Also falling a sleep while reading a book is both amazing and frustrating at the same time.

5. Watch TV

If you are not a book worm like me, then you can catch up with all your TV series that aired that week. Sometimes I don’t want to wait until the weekend to watch my favourite TV shows, because I will get lots of spoilers by the end of the week. I get to see Game of Thrones on a Monday morning and I can’t wait until Friday to watch it – because there are spoilers literally everywhere; do you get me now?

6. Play

I kinda love playing board & video games. I will admit that video games do get sort of addictive, but I feel great while I ‘waste’ my time playing video games. Board games on the other hand, require a partner and strategies. I love board games a lot, but sometimes I’m just to lazy to play them, so I turn to video games. :D Don’t judge me!

7. Go shopping

I know that it might not sound financially wise, but it is therapeutic. Don’t leave with the straight idea that you have to buy something (like a new pair of shoes or a coat). I usually get very tired when I go shopping because I have to find something. So just go and walk around the shops and if you find something that fits and that you actually need then why not buying it?! You can also try an online shopping round – just to chesk what’s new on the market.

8. Plan

Planning your next week in terms of work or personal life might not be for everyone. But somehow I feel better when I plan my next week – not something super detailed, just big lines. The fact that I enjoy planning (because I’m a perfectionist) does not have to be an enjoyable activity for you as well.

What I like about planning on lazy weekends is that I am relaxed enough to make stress free decisions. I will also start the next week more relaxed because I know what I have to do that week and I won’t freak out because I’m out of time to do my job and tasks.

  • This sounds like an awesome weekend to me! Unfortunately with a toddler, lazy weekends are a thing of the past, but they were always my fave!

    • That’s why I’m glad I don’t have kinds – yet.
      Anyway, hope you’ll get some lazy weekends back soon.

  • I still haven’t tried breakfast in bed! Well, I have at a hotel, but does that count ?!?!!

    • Oh, no the hotel doesn’t count. Haha! Breakfast in your own bed is different. You should try it! If you have someone else make it for you, is even better.

  • Love these ideas, and I have definitely done each of them on one weekend or another. I love pampering myself cleaning up and re-painting my nails for the week :) Also, planning. I lovvve to plan things and make lists, so my Sundays always include weekly planning of some sort. I wish I was better with meal planning though… that’s definitely where I get too lazy!

    • Sunday is pampering day for my nails, too!
      You sound like a very organised person, Joy! I’m sure you’ll figure out how to plan meals too. I want to create some sort of a food planner, hoping that will make cooking and grocery shopping easier.

  • If only I could have weekends like these!!! Someday my kiddo will be old enough to allow me to have weekends like these again. ;-)

    I agree with the reading suggestion! That’s always how I choose to spend free time. <3

  • Amen to reading! I used to read on the weekends in college because I never had time to during the week (all of those assignments and meetings really took up every second). But now I am on summer break, I am reading almost every day! Summer break is a long weekend for college students, so I am considering doing all of these. Lol. Hope you have a great week!

    Much love,

    • I’ve also formed the habit of reading each morning during weekend, without even realising it.
