As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we are commanded to keep the Sabbath day holy. 
This is what our leaders tell us:
Your Sabbath day behavior is a reflection of your commitment to honor and worship God.  By keeping the Sabbath day holy and going to the Lord’s house to worship Him, you demonstrate your willingness to keep your covenants with God.  While there, you can partake of the sacrament to remember Jesus Christ and His Atonement, thereby renewing your covenants and showing that you are willing to repent of your sins and mistakes.  On Sunday, you can enjoy a rest from your labors and can be renewed by your association with friends and family.
When a community or nation grows careless in its Sabbath activities, its religious life decays, all aspects of life are negatively affected, and the blessings associated with keeping the Sabbath day holy are lost.  You should refrain from shopping or participating in other commercial and sporting activities that now commonly desecrate the Sabbath.  As you endeavor to make your Sabbath activities compatible with the intent and Spirit of the Lord, your life will be filled with joy and peace.
I love Sunday.  Why?
I can’t work.  I have work sitting on my desk, but I can’t touch it until tomorrow.  And I don’t feel guilty about not doing it.
I can’t go shopping.  If I don’t have something for supper, we make do or we do without. 
I can’t do yard work.  If I don’t get it done on Saturday, it has to wait. 
I can’t clean.  If the floor is dirty or the bathroom mirror streaked, too bad.  It has to just stay that way.
It is the only day that I can sit around and look at messes and not feel guilty.  Now, I’m not saying that I get all this stuff done during the rest of the week.  I just feel guilty for not doing anything about it.
Sundays are the best.
