Sundays might be my favourite day of the week. The expression “Easy like Sunday morning” can easily describe my all day feeling of this weekday. For me this day usually means taking it with ease, but also getting ready for the week ahead. As I am a person that loves making lists, I decided to make a list of things you can do on a Sunday to prepare for the week ahead. I hope you enjoy this post and your Sunday.
Take time to yourself
Quiet down, relax, spend some time for yourself. Do things that you enjoy, which make you happy. Read, draw, yoga, meditate. Silence does wonders. Take some time to sit in silence, maybe just 10 minutes. No distractions or interruptions. You will be amazed how refreshed you will feel.
Take a walk or run. Get yourself some fresh air. Maybe take a different route than the one you always take. Discover new places in your neighbourhood. Pay attention to your surroundings. Perhaps you will notice things that have been there all along you just haven’t paid attention to them before. Walking outside can do amazing things for your creativity. You will come up with some great ideas and thoughts.
This may sound like a boring thing to point out, but when the space you are living and working in is clean you will be much more productive. A neat and tidy space also means a more stress-free and relaxed mind. It helps you clear out your thoughts.
Make a to do list
We all have a million things to do and to be able to get sh*t done we need to first of all remember what need to be done, but also prioritise and focus. Make a list of what needs to be accomplished during the week, prioritise the most important tasks. This will help you focus, have a clearer mind and minimise the risk of forgetting or rushing things.
In connection with the point above you could be writing down smart goals for the week. The goals should be specific, but attainable. They should also be connected to your longterm goals. Setting big intentions for your week can be life-changing. It allows you to think bigger and be bolder.
I would love to hear what you generally do on your Sundays? Leave a comment!
