5 Ways To Prepare for Monday

I don't often suffer from the Sunday Scaries. I'm usually ready for a purpose and to tackle a to-do list come Monday morning. Plus, I just really love my job, so I don't feel much dread when I think about it. That being said, I still like to take advantage of my Sunday and prepare for the workweek ahead. Whether you don't really love your job or you usually get burnt out by Thursday, here are five things you can do on Sunday to help prep you for the workweek ahead:


 Yoga, running, binge-watching a TV show, or soaking in a tub. Whatever the activity, set aside time on your Sunday to do it. Being relaxed (which can usually lead to feeling happy) going into a Monday morning will do wonders for your workweek.


Admittedly, I'm still really bad at this. But when I do take the time to think through lunches and dinners for the week, I'm always happy that I did. Working from home, I eat nearly every meal here. Occasionally, I'll plan to order delivery for one dinner during the week, but almost always have breakfast and lunch at home. I really don't like waking up Monday morning knowing that the first thing I have to do is go to the grocery store because I don't have any food left, so I try my best to plan ahead. This takes off a lot of stress come Monday evening, when I'm hungry for dinner. That's one less thing you need to think about on your first day back after the weekend! 

Some of my favorite recipes right now: Easy Weeknight Chicken Tacos, Chicken Gyros, and Chicken Taco Salad


One of my favorite things to do on Sunday evening is my Sunday Skincare routine. I love taking some time to prep my skin (and hair!) for the week ahead. This is my favorite face mask right now. I typically go makeup-free a few days a week, but usually wear makeup on the weekend, so my skin is in need of a little extra love by Sunday evening. 


If you're reaaaaally type A like me, this won't even be a surprising suggestion. When I was in middle school, I used to lay out my entire outfit on the floor the night before. Like, in the shape of a human. It was dorky and funny, but was also the only way that I would leave on time in the morning. Even to this day, I could change my outfit 5 times before actually getting out of the house. Which is ridiculous because I usually end up wearing about 7% of the items in my closet anyway. If you're like me, take a little time on Sunday evening to think through what your week is going to look like, so that you can cut down on your time getting ready each morning.


My week is always more productive when I have a to-do list nearby. I'm a list-maker, through and through. I'll write things on my list that are already complete just so I can cross them off. I like to sit down with my planner (I love this style) and a notepad on Sunday afternoon and get a good idea for what my week will look like. I write in which days I want to go to the gym, important deadlines, appointments, and anything else I need to do that week.

Working from home can be a bit isolating, so I like to plan a dinner or activity with a girlfriend as often as possible. It forces me to get out of the house and it's always nice to have something fun to look forward to midweek!

Try these this weekend! 


  1. This is all really great advice! I try to do these things on Sunday as well, and even sometimes during the week - impromptu spa evenings always leave me feeling fresh by morning. Great post!

  2. I'm also one of those people who've basically wore her whole wardrobe in the morning, only to settle for same old, same old... So maybe a little planning ahead will solve this indecisiveness (and a clothing-tapestry). ;)

  5. Testimony on how i got my LOAN from fundingloanplc@yahoo.com ...

    I'm Isabella Tyson from 1910 N Halsted St Unit 3, Chicago IL60614 USA,, i have been searching for a genuine loan company for the past few months and all i got was bunch of scams who made me to trust them and at the end of the day took my money without giving anything in return, all hope was lost i got confused and frustrated, i find it very difficult to feed my family and vowed never to have anything to do with loan companies on net and went to seek of assistance from a very good friend which i explained all my experience regarding online companies with and said he can help me that he knows of a Godsent and well known company called FUNDING CIRCLE PLC, he stated he just got a loan from them although i was still very unsure about this company due to my past experience but i decided to give it a try and did as i was directed by my friend and applied, i never believed but i tried and to my greatest surprise i received my loan in my bank account within 24 hours, i could not believe that i would stand on my feet financially again. I’m glad I took the risk and applied for the loan and today i'm thanking God that such loan companies still exist and promise to share the good news to people who are in need of financial assistance because the rate of scams on net is getting very serious and i don't want people to fall victim when we still have genuine and Godsent lenders.. You can contact this Godsent company using the information as stated and be a partaker of this great testimony.. Email: fundingloanplc@yahoo.com OR Call/Text +14067326622 thanks
