Sunday scaries are definitely real—but the anxiety around the upcoming week that creeps up early Sunday afternoon doesn’t have to ruin your day.
In fact, you can use that nervous energy to your advantage. Allow it to encourage you to get some stuff done on Sunday evening, rather than just ignore it as you lay on the couch and watch Netflix. By becoming a little more productive on Sunday night, you can actually make your entire week flow more smoothly.
Here are five things that you can do on Sunday night to have a healthier, happier, less anxious week!
Knowledge is power. And knowing exactly what you’re up to for the next seven days will help you manage your time and energy more effectively as you power through your week. If you have meetings or events that are unconfirmed, take the time to send a quick note and make sure you’re still on for drinks with friends or slated to get coffee with that old co-worker. People will appreciate when you follow-up, and it will give them enough time to reschedule, if need be.
I know, it’s making your skin crawl as you think about it. But just like knowing what your social calendar looks like so you can mentally prepare yourself for networking and mingling, being aware of your financial situation is pretty important. After you take a look at your expenses, you’ll know whether you need to budget a little more closely for the week, or if you can have a full-on shopping spree next time you hit up Whole Foods!
Dandelion root tea incredibly detoxifying for the liver, meaning it helps your liver eliminate toxins and work more smoothly and effectively. Dandelion promotes bile production, which breaks down food and toxins in the body. After a long weekend that probably involved a drink or two, dandelion tea can work wonders.
You know you’re way more likely to get to class if it’s already paid for and in your calendar. Take a few minutes to lock in your workout schedule on Sunday night. If you’re not a class-goer, reach out to a friend to book a running date or a hiking adventure—having a buddy who’s committed will hold you accountable, too.
