When it comes to Sunday, we have a love/hate relationship with it, mainly because we want to partake in the Funday, but know we should be preparing for Monday. We normally like to spend our Sunday’s worshipping, brunching, and lounging with a little bit of online shopping to end the day! In order to have a successful week ahead, we have to strive for balance with our Sunday habits. If you’re like us and would be willing to do just about anything to catch a few more Z’s Monday morning, we have a few life hacks for you to practice on Sunday in order to get your mind right for the week.
LIFE HACK #1: PICK OUT YOUR OUTFIT AHEAD OF TIME.
By picking out your outfit the night before, this will allow you to spend less time getting ready in the morning, which in turn could score you a few extra minutes to grab coffee before work and still be on time.
LIFE HACK #2: PRE-PLAN YOUR MEALS OR MEAL PREP FOR LUNCH.
When you pack your lunch the night before, not only will it save you money, but it’ll also make you feel better knowing you’re starting the week off with a healthy lunch. This will help you make good choices throughout the week and you’ll feel more energized…and maybe we’ll actually use our gym membership this week (fingers crossed).
LIFE HACK #3: TIDY UP.
There’s no better feeling than coming home after a long Monday to a clean house! Let’s be honest, we know it won’t stay clean throughout the week, but it puts you ahead of the game and will make your Monday just a little bit easier. This will also give you more time to start preparing dinner or spend time with your family.
LIFE HACK #4: MAP OUT THE WEEK.
Whether you have a big meeting at work this week, your kids after school activities, or you need to pencil in some “Me Time” (because this is VERY important). Grab your phone, open up your notes and start your To-Do list of all the things you need to get done this week. Another great feature for all you iPhone users is the REMIND app. This nifty little app will send a pop up reminder on your screen of anything you save to it!
LIFE HACK #5: DO YOU.
Now that you’ve finished the hard part, which really doesn’t take too long, spend the rest of your Sunday doing you. Whether that means taking a bubble bath, shopping our new arrivals at 7PM (wink, wink), or indulging in your favorite dessert, it’s important that you take the time to do what you want to do before the week begins and you have obligations.
Happy Sunday Shopaholics!!
