Schedule something fun

Schedule something fun

Make sure you also do something you enjoy, like brunch with friends or spending time with your family. 

This gives you something to look forward to during the week and it also helps you to disconnect.

Get errands out of the way

Sundays are a great day to get your errands out of the way, like grocery shopping. Also, take time for cooking meals, cleaning rooms, or dropping things off at different shops. You most likely don't have the time and energy to do these activities after work.

But don’t spend all of Sunday on these tasks. Even though they’re important, you still need some time to decompress.

Something to look forward to

You can beat Sunday scaries if you have something to look forward to during the week.

You can plan a night out at the movies or lunch with a colleague. Anything that gets you excited about the week to come.

Take to for reflection

Spend some time alone reflecting on what you’ve accomplished in the past week, which areas of your life need improvement, and what you’re grateful for.

Make this a ritual. It can help you become more self-aware, put things in perspective and learn from your mistakes.
