1. Clean their space
Things tend to accumulate during the week as you’re rushing from one thing to the next. Use Sundays to tidy up so you can start the week off in a clean environment.
2. Food prep
Who has time to cook when you have to wake up at the crack of dawn for school and then go to your evening work shift afterwards? No one! However, you have a whole Sunday afternoon to cook and leave yourself enough leftovers to last the week. This way you save money while maintaining a balanced diet.
You might finally have time to go out for drinks, but that is what Friday and Saturday nights are for. Even though that bottle of wine may be calling your name, Monday mornings are hard enough and hangovers just make them worse. Try to avoid drinking on Sundays.
4. Organize the week
When you’re juggling work and school while trying to handle a bit of a social life, things can get pretty crazy. That’s why it helps to organize your appointments and homework before you get overwhelmed during the week.
5. Plan outfits
If you want to be extra prepared, you can save yourself a few minutes every morning by planning which outfits you want to wear each day. An extra five minutes of sleep can be so precious.
6. Digital detox
Sometimes it helps to take some time away from the hustle and bustle of our lives and disconnect ourselves from the digital world. Why not read a book instead of refreshing your Tumblr, Facebook and Instagram newsfeeds? We’re constantly absorbing information, whether it be through ads on the metro, buses or on websites. Take some time for yourself and recharge.
7. Let go of last week’s hardships
Meditate or write a letter with a list of all the things that went wrong during the previous week. Let go of these hardships and start the week ready and refreshed.
8. Just do you
Use this day for yourself to do whatever you wish you had time to do during the week. Treat yourself while you do you.
