Things to do on a Sunday
Picture the scenario. It’s Monday morning. You can barely drag yourself out of the bed. You’re exhausted. You get ready for work, barely making it out the door on time. It’s going to be a long day. It sounds familiar, doesn’t it? We’ve all been there. But it doesn’t have to be that way. If you take advantage of your Sundays to prepare for the week, Mondays can be a heck of a lot easier! This is for all the working and studying people who struggle with their daily work and routine. This can be quite handy! Here are 7 things you can do on Sunday for a more productive week!
Think of Sunday as the First Day of the Week:
Most people think of Sunday as the last day to relax before heading back to work or school. Instead, think of Sunday as the first chance to prepare yourself for the week’s tasks. Monday mornings will feel less dreadful and less overwhelming because you’ve already got yourself into the mindset.
Clean Out Your Email Inbox:
If you work a typical 9-5 job, chances are most of the emails you receive Friday night through Sunday are personal and junk mail as opposed to work email. Clean those out on Sunday night so you can sit down on Monday to only emails you’ve received that morning. It will help jump into work more quickly when you don’t have to sludge through junk mail.
Write a To-Do List For the Week:
When it comes to having a more productive week, this is my most effective way to do it. Having these tasks laid out before the week starts allow you to jump right into them Monday morning. You can get yourself a weekly planner on Amazon that easily lets you plan your tasks for the entire week. If you prefer a daily planner, that is even more sorted and organised!
Clean Your Desk:
If you work from home, clean your desk off on Sunday so you start the week with a clean desk. Put anything you’ll need for Monday’s projects in the front and centre. If you don’t work from home, this is something best done Friday afternoon before you leave for the weekend.
Schedule Social Media For the Week:
If you’re a fellow blogger, that is. You can do almost all of your social media posts on Facebook and Twitter on Sunday so you don’t have to think about it during the week. It only takes 15-20 minutes on Sunday, and it saves time the rest of the week. Don’t worry, You’ve got a blog post all about automating your blog promotion for social media!
Clean the House:
There’s nothing worse than starting the work with a messy house! You will always have a more productive week when you start with a clean house. Monday evenings after work are pretty much the last time you want to come home and wash dishes, do laundry, etc., so you get all of that done on Sundays.
Meal Plan and Meal Prep:
Sundays are typically the day you do grocery shopping. Before you do that, write a meal plan. Write down what you’ll have for breakfast, lunch, and dinner each day. The go-to for meal planning is this meal planning notepad. It’s super minimalist, which makes it easy to focus on the task at hand.
