Sunday is the perfect day for practicing a little JOMO: The Joy Of Missing Out. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with filling your weekends with fun and exciting things, but there might be a reason that Sunday was once considered a day of rest. By taking it easy and slowing down on Sunday you will find yourself much more recharged and ready to take on the week.
JOMO is the slow opposite of FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out). FOMO is something we all experience from time to time: we see our friends, acquaintances and even strangers having the time of their lives on social media and we are stuck behind our screens wondering: am I missing out? And yes, maybe you are. But instead of feeling anxious about it, you can also actively choose to miss out on things. It’s all about balancing doing fun and exciting things with taking some time out. Without any distractions. In this blog we’ll give you some guidelines for the ultimate slow sunday.
Sunday is the perfect day for some self-care. Have a lie-in, have a big breakfast or brunch and take a long bath. Today is all about you. What does self-care mean to you?
During our busy weeks it sometimes happens that we just talk to our family members, partner or friends in passing and the only ‘quality time’ you spend together is in front of the tv. Sunday is the perfect day to spend some actual quality time together. What do you enjoy doing together? It can be as simple as going into town for a coffee, visit a museum or go for a nice autumnal walk. It really doesn’t have to be spectacular. This is all about spending some time together, without being distracted by our work and our screens.
Cooking and dining
If you love cooking, sunday is the ideal day to cook a lavish meal. You can try making your own pizza or pasta or put on a delicious stew. For dinner, you can set the table and really make a moment of it. What a way to end your slow sunday!
