We can all agree that we look forward to the days that we can relax and pamper ourselves, or simply do absolutely nothing for the day. National Lazy Day is the one day a year that we don’t need any excuse to take the entire day off. Whether you’re taking a day away from the office or dropping the kids off with their grandparents, today is yours to do whatever you want or, quite frankly, not do anything at all.
We all have our own versions of lazy and that’s perfectly okay! One of the best ways to relax is to first set the mood in your home. TV host and reporter Amina Smith says her favorite thing to do on a lazy day is to “use essential oils” and “things that deal within aromatic scents” which “allow [her] to relax mentally, physically, and emotionally.” Lighting candles is also an amazing way to set the mood for your lazy day. With fall on the horizon, one of our favorite candles is the Capri Blue Pumpkin Clove Jar candle from Anthropologie.
You may also choose to spend your lazy day taking care of yourself. Having a self-care routine is important every day, but on your lazy day, you may find yourself having more time to really get a full pamper. Jordan Britt, Lifestyle blogger, and fiancêe to Philadelphia Eagles long snapper Rick Lovato, loves to workout as part of her routine. She also likes to use the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay mask because “it pulls everything out of your face.” Britt also suggests the Skinmedica product line. It offers a range of products from hydration to cleansing and could be a great way to maintain the clarity and radiance of your skin.
You may just enjoy a long, relaxing bath soak like Emma Zieverink, fashion designer, and fiancée to Indianapolis Colts center Ryan Kelly. In addition to her skincare routine, she likes to “grab a bottle of wine” and “treat [her] lazy day like a spa day” with a nice bubble bath. This is the perfect time to listen to your favorite podcast or read a good novel. Our favorite bubble bath product is Margot Elena’s Lollia Wish Bubble Bath. Its warm vanilla scent is both calming and comforting.
No matter how you choose to spend your lazy day, be sure to take full advantage. Days like this don’t come around too often!
