When you manage a hectic lifestyle, sometimes all you want to do is stay home and do absolutely nothing. Just sit around and hang out with your family in your pajamas and not have to worry about what tomorrow might bring. While those days might be far and few in between, having a lazy day is a great way to balance out a hectic week. Here are some ideas on how to spend a lazy day with your family.
Stay in Your PJs
A lazy day is all about being comfortable in your home. You don’t have to get up early or stick to a routine today, so why not stay in your pajamas? Make sure you’re wearing cool pajamas so you can take pictures and share them with other. You can even make it a themed pajama day. Everyone can wear superhero onesies for instance as a great way to have fun in the house.
Choose Your Shows and Movies
Being in the house all day means lots of TV and movies. Before you start your lazy session, sit down and figure out which movies or television programs you’re going to be watching. If your family can’t decide on a particular show to watch, having local DIRECTV packages can come in handy. Service providers such as DIRECTV have DVRs, which allow us to record shows or movies that might be airing at the same time. This way, we can binge watch everybody’s favorite without the drama.
Grab the Snacks
You can’t very well binge watch your favorite shows and movies without a few snacks on board. Enlist the kids to help you prepare the snacks. You can get your basic snacks like chips, soda, cookies, and ice cream or you can find easy to make snacks like rice crispy treats s’mores, and other sweet treats. Be sure to prepare enough snacks so you don’t have to get up in the middle of the movie or show to get more.
After binge watching TV or completing a mini movie marathon, you can switch gears a bit by bringing out the old board games. Giving your eyes a break from the screen and just spending quality time with the family is a whole lot of fun and a great way to relieve stress and unwind. From Monopoly and Trouble to Mad Gab and Clue, there are so many games you guys can enjoy together.
Take a Nap
What kind of a lazy day would it be if you didn’t get a little shut eye throughout the day? After watching TV and playing games the kids are bound to get a little restless. Well everyone can pile pillows and blankets on the floor, cuddle up, and take a little nap.
Lazy days don’t come around often if you live a hectic lifestyle so when they do, the best thing you can do is enjoy it with the ones you love. Sleep as long as you’d like, eat as much as you want, and have fun without setting foot outside the house. Chances are that when it’s time to get back to “business as usual” you’ll feel a lot more rejuvenated.
