This weekend promised to be a great one — temperatures in the high 40s (which feels like summer to us New Englanders after winters with feels like temps of -15), sun shining, snowpack melting. And yet, full transparency here, all we felt like doing was cuddling up under a blanket in our coziest loungewear, reading a trashy bestseller, watching a classic movie, or talking about the intricacies of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) since Captain Marvel came out this weekend.
Since we know we’re not alone in these occasional lackadaisical vibes, we thought we would fully embrace these feelings and write about them. This past weekend inspired this week’s post — here are our top 12 activities to do on a lazy weekend.
- Finally read that book that’s been occupying space on your bookshelf or coffee table, but has yet to have its binding cracked.
- Rent or stream your all time favorite movie and then watch your bestie’s or your significant other’s (it’s always best to be lazy in twos).
- Go through those pesky sales emails that fill your inbox and either unsubscribe or read them. It will feel like a cleanse to the closer you get to inbox zero.
- If feeling ambitious, try cleaning out those catch-all places in your residence. You know, the junk drawer, the hall closet, or that second bedroom.
- Have a movie marathon. Watch all of the movies in one series whether its Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Harry Potter, or the Scream movies. It’s weirdly satisfying.
- Order takeout and have a floor picnic. This is one of our favorite things to do, believe it or not. Just be sure to vacuum before and after said meal.
- Give yourself a spa day in the comfort of your own home. Slather on a mud mask, soak your feet in hot water with bath oils, or do your nails. A little pampering always feel good.
- Food prep for the week. We love cooking meals with each other and bonding over a great home-cooked meal is a great way to reconnect.
- Listen to a few episodes of your favorite podcast or start a new one that you just haven’t had the chance to start.
- Create or update your budget. This one could set you up for success, and could make feeling lazy that much more productive.
- Rearrange a room or switch out decor that you’re tired of. It will breath new life into that space.
- When cabin fever finally hits, get outside for a walk around your neighborhood, the block, or just hang outside to get some fresh air in your lungs.
