While today is National Lazy Day, I am probably not having a lazy day right now. If you’re reading this, I am probably at orientation for graduate school, because that is what I have on the schedule bright and early today. But for today’s post, let’s pretend that I am having a lazy day and what that would look like for me. You know, if I could’ve had one today.
Instead of getting up early at the sound of an alarm going off, I would probably sleep in until my body naturally wakes up. Sometimes that’s at 8 AM, other times it might be 10 AM or noon. Since it’s a lazy day, time isn’t really of the essence. If it were an ideal lazy day, I would wake up to my boyfriend, or with Damian.
I would probably get up and brush my teeth before going into the routine of skin care. If I felt like it, I would spend a little extra time with a honey mask, or maybe under eye patches. While these things settle on my face, I would probably read a little before moisturizing and putting SPF on my face.
Off of Kitchen Duty
If I’m fully indulging in a lazy day, there would be no cooking and cleaning from me. As much as I enjoy being in the kitchen, it can be pretty time consuming, so for a lazy day, I would just avoid it altogether. That would probably mean that I would order take out, or to have food delivered to me. The benefit of this would be that, because I don’t tend to finish my meals, I would have leftovers later. It would truly be a day where I’m not cooking.
Content Consumption to the Max
As someone who loves pop culture, I would just spend time consuming stuff that I missed out on. Whether that’s binge watching a show that I’ve been waiting to watch, reading books that I haven’t had the time for, or just scrolling through social media to see what’s going on, this is something that I would probably want for my lazy day. A movie might even be something I do if I’m up to it, and sometimes playing video games can be fun. I think the games might depend on how stressed I want to get on the lazy day, because sometimes I can be crazy competitive, which probably isn’t good for my blood pressure.
Of course, it probably isn’t healthy to just sit around all day. I wouldn’t mind going to the pool just to enjoy being in the water. I can see why it’s something Belly did before she went to bed in The Summer I Turned Pretty; as nice and relaxing as the water is, it also was nice to move in and could wear you out if the sun didn’t. If I didn’t have the pool, I would probably walk Damian as the sun was setting, which is a good way of exercising as well.
That would probably be the way to end my day. I would do a low-impact exercise, take a shower, and then unwind a little more before bed. If I’m hungry, I would heat up my leftovers, but other than that, I can’t imagine anything else would go into my lazy day. Maybe shopping, but that kind of tires me out, so probably not if I had a choice in the matter.
