Organize a movie marathon. A movie marathon is an activity that can be enjoyed on your own, with a date or with a group of friends. You can stay in, or you can go to a local theater. For the best Sunday afternoon, plan for two movies. Watch the first in the early afternoon, take a break for a late lunch and then watch the second. Whether you’re cozy on the couch or out on the town, a movie marathon is a great way to spend a Sunday.

Enjoy a local park. Instead of looking at a screen, you might prefer the great outdoors. You can go alone, bring along a special someone or invite your friends. Pick your favorite local park, pack a picnic lunch, and have a pleasant afternoon.

Stay in bed. One of the best ways to spend a Sunday afternoon doesn’t even require leaving your bed. Cuddle up with a warm quilt, your favorite movie or television show and a warm cup of tea, and you’re all set. Staying in bed gets even more enjoyable when you have someone to enjoy the time with. Staying cozy will be most appealing during a chilly or rainy Sunday afternoon.

Make your favorite meal. Grab a loved one or a friend and plan to make your favorite meal together. Since you have the entire afternoon, the meal can be multiple courses and made to perfection. You can start your Sunday afternoon by shopping for the ingredients. Then, hit the kitchen for some serious meal preparation. The best part is when you’re done, you’ll have dinner all ready!


Volunteer. Volunteer work is one of the best ways to spend a Sunday afternoon because it allows you to give back to the community and feel good about yourself at the same time. There are lots of things you can do. Serve food at a soup kitchen, care for dogs and cats at a pet shelter or clean up your local park.
