It’s International Lazy Day on 10th August – which happens to be a Friday. If you’ve already got the day off work, then let’s just all take this as a sign from the universe that we have permission to do nothing. All. Day. Long
Most mornings are spent being jolted awake by the alarm. Today, you have the excuse to lie in, so don’t even bother with an alarm. The errands can wait.
Stay in your PJs
Dressing to impress is overrated, well at least today. Instead of putting on your Friday best, live the plush life and keep those cozy flannels and fluffy socks on.
Order food to your door
After spending a few hours doing absolutely nothing, you’re bound to get hungry eventually. Put the cooking utensils down – today you can order in.
Abu Dhabi has plenty of delivery services to aid you in your quest for laziness, most of which have an app to make your delivery service streamlined. Our favourites include Talbot, Carriage and Zomato.
Binge watch your favourite films
Nothing says lazy like a TV marathon. Starzplay and Netflix offer thousands of popular films and shows for you to binge on. The only question is, can you be bothered making popcorn? Visit: netflix.com, arabia.starzplay.com
Get your place cleaned

The best way to relax after a long day of laziness is to take a bubble bath. Light a candle or two and sink into clouds of fluff with a good book, whether it be on a Kindle or a good old paperback novel that you’ve read at least half a dozen times.
