The weekend is over and the new weeks ahead but when that Monday dread starts to set in you don’t want Sunday to end. Yeah, We’ve been there too. Dreading the work week ahead, maybe you have a busy week or an awful team meeting coming up. When it feels like there’s nothing to look forward to setting out for the week ahead can be a struggle especially while we’re still in lockdown.
So to save you hitting the snooze button every Monday morning and waking up hoping Sunday starts again - the dream! We have a few things you can do on a Sunday to make the week ahead easier.
Plan Your Outfits For The Week
One thing to help ease you into the new week is to plan out your outfits for the week. Even though most of us are still working from home still plan on getting dressed, even if you’re wearing joggers on the bottom. Putting a bit of effort into your outfits for the week can make your day seem so much better and can change your mindset for the day so much.
Plan Your Workouts
Start your week off right by scheduling in time for your workouts. If you’re religious about working out 5 times a week then plan each day's workout on a Sunday so you don’t have to worry about it come Monday. Also adding your workouts to your diary just like you would your weekly team meeting stops you from making excuses for not working out throughout the week.
Download a New Podcast
If you’re morning used to be filled with a daily commute then why not use the time you’d normally have for your commute to sit down and listen to a podcast or even better go for a walk and listen to a podcast. Something to pass the time and something you can look forward to listening too. We recommend Girls Gotta Eat or The Co-Working Club Podcast.
I know what you’re thinking ‘ugh if one more person talks about meal prep’ but hear me out. If you dread finishing work to then have to cook a meal from scratch then you need to meal prep. Carve out an hour or two on a Sunday to batch cook a few meals that can be frozen and then reheated later. Meals like soup, chilli and curry are great for this. Alternatively, if you want something fresher organise your veg into portions so all you have to do is chop and throw it in a pan come Monday Night.
Write a To-Do List for The Week
While this may not be the most exciting of tasks but writing a to-do list for the week can help you plan your week so much better. Knowing what tasks need to be done on which days will free your mind & help you be more productive.
