It’s Sunday! The day that everyone loves to hate, but fails to appreciate. Yes, Sunday is the day that you should use to refuel your batteries and prepare for the week ahead. But you shouldn’t spend the entire day resting and relaxing. You should use this short day to your advantage as best as you can. To save you from a possible case of the “Monday blues,” Here are some tips to help you prepare for a new week:
Make a To Do List
If you are easily overwhelmed and spend your down time focusing on all the things you have to do instead of just doing them, a to do list is the perfect way to map out a new week. Focus on your biggest and most important tasks of the week. If you have three big tasks that you want you to accomplish, work towards accomplishing them. Of course you won’t accomplish everything in one day. But working towards them is a great step.
If the thought of work makes you cringe or can completely change your mood; try to think about something positive that you may have coming up in the week. Change your way of thinking! Instead of thinking, “Ugh, I hate my job.” Be positive and grateful that you have one and most importantly appreciate the fact that you are getting the opportunity to live another day.
Go to sleep early
Sometimes the urge to catch your favorite show might be hard to resist but you can always watch it at another time. Go to bed early on Sunday nights so that you wake up feeling refreshed and not restless. Lack of sleep can effect how you interact with anyone that you may come in contact with, so if you’re well rested you will be positive and smile more.
You’ve probably heard this a million times before, but its true! Having a healthy breakfast, not just one Monday’s, but every day can also effect your day. So start your day off the right way with a healthy breakfast. You will thank yourself later once you realize you made it to lunch without wanting to close your eyes or punch someone in the face, because all you’ve had is coffee.
Always remember every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day.
Have a great week!
