6 Easy Things to Do on Sunday That Will Improve Your Week
When Sunday night rolls around, it’s hard not to experience that feeling of dread for Monday morning. But instead of lamenting the end of the weekend, you can use Sunday to improve your week by doing a few activities that ensure you’ll have more pleasant days to come. Using Sundays as a dedicated day to get your life together can make for a smoother work week, and you may even find yourself looking forward to the end of the weekend.
As expected, Gallup polls show that most people experience less stress and more enjoyment on Saturdays and Sundays, but certain people also show no increase in pleasure over the weekends, especially if they continue to socialize during the week at work. This is because they’re not sure what to do with their leisure time, and they end up spending it plopped in front of the TV or socially isolated. Picking up a good habit on Sundays can not only make your day better, but give you a sense of purpose.
If you’re trying to avoid the Monday blues, or you’re just trying to find time to fit in all your errands, consider doing these six things every Sunday to improve the rest of your week.
1.Look at your calendar.
There’s nothing worse than realizing you have five meetings in a row on a given afternoon, or you forgot about meeting your friend for lunch. On Sunday, look at your calendar for the next several days with intention. Are you traveling? Do you need to cancel, add, or adjust anything? What’s missing from your to-do list? Reviewing what’s already on your schedule in the coming week makes you feel more prepared to handle it.
Also, remember to make time for the good stuff: a date night, wine with your bestie, walks with your dog. It is easy to plan, plan, plan for all the things you *have* to do, but you’ll go crazy if you don’t create space for a little fun.
