Sundays evenings shouldn’t be spent worrying about what the work week may bring. That is a lot of wasted energy that you have no control over. You will wake up tomorrow, Monday morning and just handle it like you always do–so why waste time worrying about it? I know easier said than done. There are ways in which you can prepare for the work week that will create a foundation for a healthier week to come. Less stress, self-love, healthier food choices and breaking a sweat.
Sporteluxe is going to fill you in on the rest.
“…you can use that nervous energy to your advantage. Allow it to encourage you to get some stuff done on Sunday evening, rather than just ignore it as you lay on the couch and watch Netflix. By becoming a little more productive on Sunday night, you can actually make your entire week flow more smoothly.
Here are five things that you can do on Sunday night to have a healthier, happier, less anxious week!
Look at your schedule and follow up
Knowledge is power. And knowing exactly what you’re up to for the next seven days will help you manage your time and energy more effectively as you power through your week. If you have meetings or events that are unconfirmed, take the time to send a quick note and make sure you’re still on for drinks with friends or slated to get coffee with that old co-worker. People will appreciate when you follow-up, and it will give them enough time to reschedule if need be.
Check out your bank statement
I know, it’s making your skin crawl as you think about it. But just like knowing what your social calendar looks like so you can mentally prepare yourself for networking and mingling, being aware of your financial situation is pretty important. After you take a look at your expenses, you’ll know whether you need to budget a little more closely for the week, or if you can have a full-on shopping spree next time you hit up Whole Foods!
Drink dandelion tea
Dandelion root tea incredibly detoxifying for the liver, meaning it helps your liver eliminate toxins and work more smoothly and effectively. Dandelion promotes bile production, which breaks down food and toxins in the body. After a long weekend that probably involved a drink or two, dandelion tea can work wonders.
Schedule your workouts
You know you’re way more likely to get to class if it’s already paid for and in your calendar. Take a few minutes to lock in your workout schedule on Sunday night. If you’re not a class-goer, reach out to a friend to book a running date or a hiking adventure—having a buddy who’s committed will hold you accountable, too.
Take a bath
You already know we’re big fans of bath time here are Sporteluxe! Mostly because we love relaxing in the tub … but recently, researchers found that an hour in the bath is equivalent to 30 minutes of moderate exercise. BLESSED DAY! Not only will hopping in the tub help get you Zen, it can also count as your workout for the day. You’re welcome.”
