What does your Ultimate PJ Day look like?
Do you struggle to switch off? Does your day off still include lists of things to do? Or do you feel like a pile of crap if you do nothing for a day?
It’s very rare for me to sit and watch a film or if I do binge watch a Netflix show, I have to take a few weeks break before starting something new.
This used to stress me out even more, I would be laying there with restless legs trying to enjoy the latest trending series and my brain would be like ‘nope, not today’. I used to confuse this feeling with ‘I should be doing more’, or at times it made me feel lazy, well until I burnt out (again).
Over the last year I have gotten to understand myself a lot more, with no deadlines pending or no future projects planned until the pandemic eases, I slowed down and relaxed in other ways.
Here’s a few things I like to do to help me create my own perfect PJ Day.
Have a plan, I try keep it loose and no time blocking but I’ll generally know what I’ll be doing that day.
If you want to watch something but then that weird guilty feeling pops back up, a tip that works for me is to tell myself I’ll do something I have put off for a while (usually laundry) then chill out. It tells my brain ‘ok you’ve done your work, you can relax now’.
Find hobbies/activities that you get completely lost in. You know the ones where you don’t even notice 2 hours have passed by.
I like to practise Reiki as a self care activity and work on being in the present moment.
A perfect PJ Day for me is warming up my Pyjamas on the radiator, using a cooling face mask in a hot bath, taking the time to moisturise my whole body, making a nice cuppa tea and switching on the laptop.
Yep, that’s right. My favourite days are the ones where I have created. I can spend hours researching, creating and visualising. I switch off from the world around me and feel a spark ignite inside me.
How PJ Dayzzz Started
After discovering what helped me, I wanted to help others and that’s how PJ DAYzzz was born.
I want to give women their own version of an ultimate pj day but in a way that they can use it in a way that suits them because everyone is different. Although one common interest is the happiness a new set of pyjamas can bring.
Every month we include a different short self care activity that may help you to switch off from the world and focus on yourself.
We also include Positive Affirmations to work on mindset and the language people use to talk to themselves.
Our monthly quote is chosen to empower women and perhaps give you something to think about. Thinking about what the quote means to you and how you can apply it to your life.
Finishing off with some sweet treats.... I keep my sweet treats for when I do settle down to watch something on TV but I have been known to eat my cookies in the bath with a face mask on 😂
Some of our customers simply enjoy having new pyjamas and goodies sent directly to their house as a monthly treat to themselves.
I love how different customers use the PJ Box in different ways as it just brings me back to how this whole journey began and how I like to relax in different ways than others.
