It’s been said that Sunday is the day of rest. Does this brilliant concept refer to those of us with kids? It most certainly does if we redefine the word rest.
For me Sundays are a day to reflect and recharge, so that I’m ready to face the week ahead. It’s by no means a “spa day” (although, man, I’d really love one of those!), but a day where I make it a priority to find a little peace.
Peace can come in many forms:
- a cup of tea and the newspaper (even reading one article counts)
- get your hands in the dirt and soak up a little sunshine
- a hot bath
- sing in the shower
- listen to jazz while you fold laundry
- call your best friend from college and DON’T talk about the kids
What if, just on Sunday, even if it’s 20 minutes, take a little time for you.
