6 Ways to Enjoy a Lazy Saturday

6 Ways to Enjoy a Lazy Saturday

As summer comes to an end, people are enjoying a little less travel and a little more relaxation on the weekends. But what do you do when you don’t have any big plans? While it can feel like a sin to not have any plans on the weekend, a lazy Saturday is sometimes the perfect end to a stressful week.

Here are some fun ways you can enjoy your next lazy Saturday!

1. Stay Comfy

Weekdays are for dressing up and impressing coworkers. A lazy Saturday morning calls for nothing more than staying in your favorite pajamas and cooking breakfast or playing board games with the family. There’s something about being comfortable and not dressing up for the day that makes a Saturday morning even more carefree and relaxing.

2. Host a Carefree Brunch

Being lazy on a Saturday morning isn’t about being anti-social. It’s more about staying relaxed in your own environment. With that being said, feel free to invite over a few close friends and enjoy brunch.

The key here is to make the brunch as stress-free as possible. Running to the supermarket to get last-minute ingredients, forgetting to run the dishwasher, and burning the pancakes aren’t exactly good ways to start your day. Make everything easy by setting the table the night before, making a breakfast casserole that simply needs to be put in the oven, and using paper products that can be thrown away.

3. Enjoy a Bath

During the week, showers are probably your worst nightmare. You constantly oversleep and forget to leave enough time to dry your hair. Well, you can make up for these frustrations by enjoying a relaxing bath on a Saturday morning. Take your time. Get the temperature just right, grab a magazine, light some candles, and use a nice bath bomb. You’ll get out feeling clean, refreshed, and ready to conquer the rest of your lazy day.

4. Crank the Music Up

While there’s nothing wrong with binge watching Netflix, you may be surprised to find that music is better for elevating your mood. Crank up the music throughout your house and enjoy singing along to your favorite tunes while reading a magazine or cooking.

5. Plan Meals for Next Week

Is meal planning stressful for you? If so, it’s probably because you’re always doing it last-minute. You may even be meal planning in the supermarket parking lot. Well, remove some of the stress and spend some time planning for next week’s meals on Saturday morning.

Turn on some music, hop on Pinterest, and find some healthy, tasty recipes that you’re willing to try. If you enjoy cooking and find it relaxing, you may even want to spend the day preparing meals ahead of time.

6. Finish the Day Outdoors

There’s something peaceful about spending a late-summer or early-fall evening outdoors. Since you’ve probably been inside for most of the day, you’ll be happy to get some fresh air. If you have a porch, pouring a nice drink and sitting around chatting can be fun. If you have a large backyard, building a bonfire is the perfect way to close out the day. There are lots of options, so don’t be afraid to get creative!

Embrace the Laziness

While lazy isn’t a word that you want people to use to describe you on a regular basis, it’s okay to embrace it on the occasional Saturday. Sometimes, staying home in your pajamas, and hanging out by yourself or with family is just what the doctor ordered. Energize your body and mind so that you’ll be ready to face the new week with grace, inspiration, and motivation.

How was your Saturday?

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra

Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

8. Canary

This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
