Everyday Inspirations


~ how to ~


It's Sunday night, which means it's time to prepare for another week. (By the way, how do weekends manage to fly by so quickly? It doesn't matter if I'm resting or relaxing -- before I know it, it's Sunday.)

Instead of branding Sunday night as the dreaded "night before Monday," use the evening as a time to relax and mentally prepare yourself for another week. Establish a relaxation ritual that is unique to you. Get rid of clutter so you don't wake up to messes that will stress you out. Make sure you eat a delicious, healthy meal. Avoid caffeine, alcohol, or sugar if they affect your sleep. And don't forget to end your night with an activity that relaxes you, such as enjoying a warm beverage with a book or taking a bath.

That is a GREAT idea! I always find myself thinking all about the next week, how long it will be, how busy I'll be, ect. when I really should try to relax.

I totally agree on this! We tend to overthink how fast weekends pass, and miss out on opportunity as stated above! So thanks for giving us this tip! :)

@Xenia: You're so welcome. I'm glad the tip is helpful. I know what you mean. Sometimes I'm so focused on the fact that Monday is coming up, I forget to take care of myself. @Kapil: Thank you! I'm so glad you like the post. I love that hearing from a reader from India. What a beautiful country.
