Ahhh Sundays. A day where you can either be lazy and happy or a day where you feel stressed, because the weekend’s almost over… The last few weeks I have actually grown fond of Sundays, because I have decided to change things up a little bit. There is really no need to have these mixed feelings about this last day of the week. Sundays should be seen as a day where you can relax and get prepared for the new week to come.
Everyone has different plans on this day, some of us prefer to stay at home and spend the rest of the day being couch potatoes and others like to go on little outings and adventures. Sundays also makes for a great time to prepare yourself for the week to come and by prepare I mean like organizing, writing your week’s schedule and even pampering yourself counts as preparing!
My Sundays differ from time to time, but I always make sure to see it as an opportunity to prepare. You don’t have to spend hours and hours planning and organizing, I mean who wants to do that on a Sunday? You only have to put at least one hour aside to just go sit down and write in your planner or diary about important things you have to be aware of or complete for the following week.
Making sure of any appointments you might have, events you have to go to, someone’s birthday, places you have to be, tasks or assignments that are due, checking emails… Having an overview of your week will ensure that you are prepared for the week and will prevent you from having a week full of mishaps or unexpected situations. It’s probably best to do this in the morning, because then it’s done and dusted and out of the way and you can enjoy the rest of your Sunday without stressing too much (hopefully).
Now for the next preparation and this does not require any planners and concentration. Sundays are a golden opportunity to pamper yourself from head to toe. I have created a list for myself which I named “Pamper me Sundays” and I have written down different treatments and pampering stuff that I like to do like putting on a nourishing face mask, doing a foot soak and giving extra care to my feet, a yummy hair mask, a nice full body scrub or whatever I feel like pampering myself with.
You can enjoy a nice hot bath with a bath bomb or some bubbles (even the alcoholic one too haha). You can even go book yourself in at the spa, whatever you fancy. The point is, Sundays should be the day where you take extra care of yourself. Giving extra TLC to your body or just even your mind and soul! Plus, it’s a great way to finish off your week, especially if it was a rough one. If you don’t take at least one day and put it aside for just taking care of yourself, you might get a little cray-cray.
Pampering yourself on this day will make you feel confident which in return will make you feel prepared for the new week AND it’s relaxing! It’s a win-win!
Try to make it a weekly goal for yourself or a small tradition to prepare yourself for the week and yes I know, we all get lazy sometimes, but just do it and get it out of the way. Trust me, you will feel so much better and you’ll feel like you can take the week by storm!
Till next time guys! 🙂
