We Asked the OneTable Community How They Like To Unwin(e)d on Shabbat, and Here Are Their Answers.
We hear you: It’s been a long, long week, and you’ve never been more ready to take a break from kicking ass at the office and move on to getting into pajamas, or onto a friend’s couch, or a yacht — whatever floats your boat 🙂 We asked the OneTable Community: When it comes to relaxing on Shabbat, how DO you unwin(e)d? (And spoiler alert: It’s not just wine).
When both you and the pup could use a walk.
Take the dog for a walk and enjoy the quiet – @amandadbroyles
By taking my dog’s collar off so we can fully get into rest mode together (and a glass of wine of course) <3 – @natirabinowitz
Or maybe you’re a cat person… Pretending like I can play piano and hard lounging w/the cats – @thefemmeprince
Nothing like a Jewish culinary classic.
Baking challah! – @keribaker_
PSA: You are allowed to consume the ENTIRE challah.
By finishing an entire homemade challah! – @mglustoff
In any form.
With challah French toast – @twittikat
No, really. Creativity counts for everything.
With sprinkle challah obviously – @amanda.megan
When there’s another classic Jewish carb that also matters.
Bagels on bagels on bagels – @ernq1988
And obviously, gotta get in that post-carb carb.
With dessert! – @anne_nicole7
Our community really likes carbs.
Carb maximalism – @fredwilliezlapolla
Nothing like dinner with the fam, though.
I love going to Shabbat dinner with my family then watching a movie with a glass of wine – @melanieselemanphoto
And yes, dinner might be a Grandma Party (but in the best way).
Spending shabbat dinner with my grandparents and eating some fresh challah and kugel <3 – @yaeliixbabyy
Or maybe, your fam is a wholesome group of fine-lookin friends.
Love spending shabbat with my chosen family! – @nickyj124
And dinner with those friends should be thoughtful.
Hosting dinner with friends and setting intentions for the week – @victoriapaige73
But also hella fun.
Play card games with friends – @julia.raina
Like this kind of fun:
Board games! – @deenalurie
Or this kind:
Puzzle time! – @amandarozy
Sometimes, the best dinners go on forever.
Long Shabbat dinners and no alarm clock in the morning! – @getreadyjetsgo
Nothin like taking steps to stay mindful of the present.
Putting my cell away! – @shawnacalfondesign
And making your place look all pretty definitely doesn’t hurt.
Lighting candles is automatically relaxing – @entiredelights
Gotta get comfyyy.
I like to get in my jammies early. – @nrg75
Movie night complete with homemade truffle popcorn, wine, and my bf – @eynav_ovadia
Time feat. just you can be ~ transformative ~
Taking some time to myself – @raminkoff
And might look like this:
I like to unwin(e) with a glass of wine and a hot bath while I reflect on the week – @rmbinder
By going to yoga and giving myself what I need!! – @jayyfi
I like to unwind on Shabbat by reading a good book! – @leela_kro
Or even this important practice:
Like to celebrate successes during the week – @todo_muy_cyn
And maybe this, if you’ve got the spunk and the, well, trees (hey, you do you):
Sitting in orchards reflecting on our week <3 – @ncwhite33
But yeah, sometimes it does come down to wine.
With a glass of wine obviously – @leahsharaby
And if it’s gonna be wine? Make it count.
I drink my favorite wine – @peace.love.pam
