Set the mood for the week ahead.
Sundays are the best — and worst — day of the week.
They are the best because if you’re not a procrastinator, you get to have a nice and relaxing day in your pajamas before the stress of the new week hits you. Conversely, they are the worst because you have to rush to get yourself ready before the week starts and you no longer have free time.
An easy way to combat this is to schedule your week in a way where you don’t overwhelm yourself. This isn’t always easy to do, depending on your job. Sometimes, you have no choice but to be a bit stressed. If that is the case, you can consider therapeutic hobbies. It may sound idiotic but bullet journaling, crocheting, and coloring are just a few examples of activities that instantly put people at ease.
A new trend is ASMR, which stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. In simple terms, it is the tingling sensation you get when something is particularly soothing. Youtubers and celebrities have started making these videos by means of whispering, eating, or tapping. There are several different kinds such as roleplays and page turning. Those with anxiety disorders often like focusing their attention to someone else rather than themselves and these videos provide the means to do so.
If these don’t suit your personality, you can simply do what you typically enjoy. I personally love watching movies on my laptop with a plate of food next to me. If you like going out with friends, partying, staying in, it is entirely up to you.
Point being, Sundays worry everyone for different reasons but there are positive ways to look at it.
You have the chance for a fresh start. You also have the chance to rekindle your once had motivation. So turn on a bath, light some candles, pour some wine, and put yourself at ease knowing that you’re going to absolutely crush it this week.
