There’s no denying that Sunday scaries can creep up on you after a fun-filled weekend, leaving you feeling unprepared for the week ahead.

Create a Weekly Schedule
Taking the time to plan your week will make you a more productive and effective person, thus making it easier to manage the week ahead. To plan effectively, create a schedule every Sunday for the upcoming week. When you’re scheduling out your days, ensure you take time to review bigger plans and your priorities. You can use a physical planner, simple pen and paper or an app to help you stay on track.
Tidy up your Home
An organized home makes for an organized mind. Spend Sunday cleaning up and making sure everything is in order before the busy week begins. Fold the laundry, put away your dishes, and pick up any lingering items around the house before heading off to bed. Tidying up your space will instantly enhance your mood, and you’ll have one less thing lingering in the back of your mind throughout the week.
Set Aside Some Downtime
Before heading off to bed, it’s important to take some time for yourself. Give yourself a moment to recharge before you jump into a new week. Use this time to meditate, set aside some downtime, read or journal. Try writing about how your previous week went and what you hope the upcoming week will bring.
