How To Make Your Sunday Less Scary

Travel Maven

It is not surprising that the transition from the weekend to the workweek is, and likely has always been, unpleasant.

Nothing can ruin your Sunday more than worrying about everything you have to do on Monday. Sometimes it seems like we’ll just spend the rest of every Sunday of our lives worrying. But that’s does not have to be the case.

There are so many ways to beat the Sunday scaries. And one of the first ways to do this is to not jump to conclusions and have faith in our ability to cope.

Stay organized.

One of my absolute favorite ways to stress less and get a grip on what feels like a never ending list of responsibilities is by breaking down everything I have to do that week into small easy to digest bullet points on a to-do list. Not only does it help me get all my priorities in check it also makes me feel super organized and like I'm already going into the work week prepared and ready to take on any and all tasks thrown my way. And most importantly, writing everything down helps me separate the responsibilities of Monday so that I can relax and actually enjoy my Sunday.

Spend it in good company.

Don’t get me wrong, some Sundays I need and want to be completely alone. Especially after a weekend of heavy socializing. Spending time by yourself can be extremely beneficial in helping you unwind before starting the week. However, some Sundays are better spent with people that make you feel good. Whether that’s a best friend you can vent to or a family member you can run errands with, the people you surround yourself with can greatly impact your mood and in turn your outlook on life and the upcoming workweek.

Make Mondays a special occasion.

Having something positive to look forward to on Mondays automatically takes so much panic away from the weekend ending. This is easily one of the most effective ways to keep the worry at bay and actually get you excited to start the week. Scheduling a facetime with one of your best friends or even saving Monday night to watch an episode of one of your favorite shows are all great examples of how you can add a little bit of excitement to your Monday so it's not such an easy to dread day of the week.

Know you're not alone.

There is something comforting in knowing that you aren’t the only one feeling this way. Some 80% of working Americans surveyed said they worry about the upcoming workweek on Sunday. Knowing we aren’t alone in our struggle can give us confidence and make conquering the week ahead feel more attainable.
