LIFESTYLE // x Amazon.ca // My Lazy Day Secrets
My body apparently doesn't like the last minute summer heat and has decided to catch a bug ! So this last week I've been quarantining myself at home... but also on the edge of also catching cabin fever.
I don't know about you, but I always find it extremely hard to actually have a "lazy day" especially when I'm running my own business and my business is social media.
Even when I'm sick, I can still technically pick up my phone and answer emails, edit my photos, write a post, organize my editorial calendar, etc. etc. right? So I always feel so guilty that I can't do all those things when I'm at home sick because it's just so easily accessible to me. I have to really convince myself to actually "take a day off" and quite my inner critic so that my body and mind have time to regroup and recover.
Eventually, after a lot of struggling last week to actually take the day off, I decided that I needed a good-to-honest LAZY DAY. So I started to do just that.
...Then it hit me. I didn't know WHAT TO DO?
I hadn't really thought too much about it before, but how do you properly have a "lazy day"? I began to think, "what would I like to do that has nothing to do with a daily working day activity?".
If I try to turn my brain off from its regularly scheduled noisy chatter, I find myself naturally reaching for my phone and sitting in front of my computer still. After Pinterest-ing potential DIY ideas, to spending probably 30 minutes on Netflix trying to find a new binge-worthy TV show, and scrolling through Instagram I realized that this isn't a "lazy day" that is beneficial to improving my inner wellbeing. How really different was what I was just doing from my regular work day other than procrastinating on different topics :p?
I decided that the best way to have a lazy day was to try to disconnect from as much technology as I could. I mean - I still had my phone by me (for emergencies ok?), but I wasn't on it every couple minutes of the day like I usually am.
After doing an at-home yoga practice, I ended up grabbing my Kindle and downloading a new book to read, sat on my balcony and enjoyed some of the final days of 30+ degree weather with a cup of iced tea while people/car watching many stories below (yes, I admit it, I'm one of those condo creepers - but it's the perks of living so high up!).
What do you all like to do on a LAZY DAY?

I also know you've all been asking me about my lounge pants, and sadly they are sold out now, but I've linked really similar styles below as well as my other favourite loungewear pieces to keep you SUPER COSY whenever you need. And they are all shop-able on my fave Amazon.ca !
