Sunday is a great day for planning and has a major influence on how the entire week will go. If you can spend a part of your Sunday planning for the week ahead, and implementing some productive habits, you’d be surprised at how much of a difference it would make. It’s like a preparation for the week ahead.
So here are some of the things you can do every Sunday to avoid the Monday blues, feeling overwhelmed or anxious about the week ahead:
Stop for a moment and reflect on your life, goals, and dreams every Sunday. Always have 2 or 3 weekly goals to keep you really focused and set your priorities right. This is crucial if you want to get things done and get ahead.
✨Plan your week
Sundays are great for planning. Sit down and write out everything you have to do for the upcoming week. This will improve your productivity and make you feel more organized and structured. Also, it will help eliminate the well-known feeling of there not being enough time in the day to get everything done.
✨Quality time with your loved ones
Normally, Sunday is the day when everybody’s home (in most cases). Have breakfast with your family, spend quality time, and set aside your phone. Tell your loved ones you love them. Call your parents and schedule a visit if you can. Make time for them.
✨Do something you love
Do things that bring you joy and that you normally don’t have much time to do during the week. Learn something that you find interesting and start practicing it every Sunday. This could be playing an instrument, a sport, dancing, or even spending more time with someone special.
✨Clean and organize
Starting the week with a messy home is the worst. Spend a few minutes every Sunday decluttering, vacuuming, and organizing everything. You’ll feel more productive if your environment and space is clutter-free.
It’s basically preparing meals ahead for the next 3-4 days and keeping them in the fridge. So, you don’t have to cook during the week. This will save you so much time. It is truly a lifesaver when getting ready for the week. It can also save you so much money!
It’s so important to set aside time for yourself. Take a bath, meditate, read, call a friend, go for a walk, go out for dinner, cook your favorite meal, anything that brings you peace. Whatever self-care is for you, do it every Sunday. Little things like that could set your mood for the next week.
After planning out your week and putting everything in order, you deserve to relax. Sundays are great for prepping but it’s still a day of rest so make sure to schedule your downtime. Treat yourself. You need to go into the week refreshed and ready to take on the world.
