10 Things To Do This Sunday That Will Improve Your Week

Recently, on Instagram, I asked everyone what their favourite day of the week is. Of course, a lot of people said Friday, but Sunday was a popular answer. I can totally relate to those Sunday lovers. Some people use the day to relax, others like to use the day to get things done, while others may use the day to catch up with friends and/or family. However you choose to spend it, I think we can all agree that Sunday is the perfect day to reset before the week begins.

Here’s what you can do on Sundays that will help you start the week off right.

Go grocery shopping
This will help you eat healthier because you’ll be able to plan your meals for the week. Also, you’ll have more free time during the week because you won’t have to run to the grocery store.

Prep your meals
Life can get hectic! So, spend your Sunday by prepping your lunches, dinners, and snacks for the week.

Organize your closet and plan your outfits
By doing this you’ll save yourself the frustration of not knowing what to wear and trying to find certain clothes throughout the week.

Clean out your bag
Get rid of the crumpled up receipts, gum wrappers, and put the loose change back in your wallet. It’ll make you feel more organized!

Do your laundry
Wash your clothes on Sunday, and you won’t have a shortage of clean clothes in the middle of the week!

Write a to-do list

If you mentally plan out your week ahead by writing a to-do list of the tasks you want to accomplish you’ll head into the week with a clear head.

I know the list above involves a lot of “chores”, but don’t forget to set aside time to relax.

Have a bath
De-stress from the previous week by having a warm bath to relax before jumping into the new week.

Sleep in
If you don’t need to jump out of bed on Sunday morning then sleep in! Get some rest before the workweek starts.

Start the day slow
Once you get out of bed, make your favourite breakfast, read the paper and/or watch your favourite show.

Read
Catch up on a book you’ve been meaning to read to give your mind a break from life-stuff.

Spend this Sunday doing some (or all) of the things on this list to have a better week ahead! Take the time to get things done, but also remember to recharge your mind, body, and soul.

The Five Different Types of Self-Care

Self-care is still being promoted everywhere! There are plenty of social media shares, podcasts, and YouTube videos about it. But, I find that these platforms only focus on certain aspects of self-care, such as face-masks and spa days. Yes, pampering yourself is a form of self-care, however, it’s important for you to know that it’s a lot deeper than that. Self-care is dedicating some time out of your day to take care of your mental, emotional and physical health. It allows you to check in with yourself, and do something that makes you happy.

There are actually five different types of self-care that you should be practicing. Here they are!
