Sundays have always been a somber 24 hours for me. Ever since I was a kid, Sunday was recognized as the “holy day” in which you wake up, are forced to go to church and then come home to dinner with the family and some quiet time. Now that I am an adult, Sundays bring a different type of vibe.

My Sundays nowadays are spent relaxing, drifting in and out of sleep, reading, watching tv or just playing around online. However, despite all that relaxation, there is still a apart of me that feels like something is missing, and I think its a Sunday morning meditation routine. Look at it, after working all week and partying, frolicking or doing house chores all Saturday (this is all hypothetical if you have a normal work schedule), Sunday just seems like a day that should be used to replenish and rejuvenate the mind, body and soul from the week behind and the one ahead.

In some ways I feel like this urge for a Sunday meditation is a runoff from my spiritual experiences as a child growing up in a Christian household where Sunday mornings were dedicated to a prayer devotion before church. Even though I have veered off into an even bigger eye opening spiritual experience that is bigger that any religion, Sunday morning being designated as a time to find your zen has stuck with me. So even if I don’t meditate for the rest of the week, maybe I should start designating a few minutes on a Sunday morning for some mind-body spiritual alignment.

What about you? Do you feel like Sunday mornings call for meditation? Let me know in the comments below.


One Love,

  1. I grew up a preachers kid and Sundays weren’t the only day I had to attend church. I was there pretty much Monday through Friday, and as soon as I got older, the first thing I did was NOT GO AT ALL. But as my life got harder, I began to go back. I have even gotten to the point where I make sure I have Sundays free all day. While I do go to church, I agree that Sunday is a day for rest. I don’t clean, do yard work or anything on that day. It is a great day to relax.

    1. Thanks for your feedback Sasha. Yes, my family was very religious also, so going to church was not voluntary it was compulsory. I stopped going to church from my early teens, but I can see why you would go back if it feels like home or gives you peace of mind. I am no longer religious, don’t think I have ever been, just went through the motions because I had to as a child. I am spiritual though, and it’s good when we find what works for us to help keep us steady and balanced. One Love!

  2. I went to Christian school, and I used to listen to what the teachers said. I always checked to make sure their quotes were true. Reading by myself, I discovered the Apocrypha, and deuterocanonical books that they took out beginning in 1640. There are a bunch of other books that never were in there too like the Shepherd of Hermas that they don’t tell us about. Anyway, I think I learn more reading old books myself than from organized religion. Some of the stuff they took out is really interesting too.

  3. My sunday morning has evolved into a meditation practice and yoga with my husband. It’s a beautifully holy time. I, too, grew up in a religious home and have strayed unto a different path. Mediation is my religion now and I love the bliss of a lazy Sunday.
