Sweeping the Sunday Scaries Away
Sunday evenings. Does the thought of the coming week make you feel anxious, unsure, or simply a sense of dread?
There are a few ways to sweep the Sunday scaries away. It’s about making space for the week and noticing what you need.
It’s been proven - when your space is a literal mess, life starts to feel like a mess too. Just by clearing the countertop and putting things away, you start to feel better. Making space gives you room to think, create, plan and do what you need to do for the week.
Choose your outfits
The fewer choices you have to make on Monday morning, the better. Get a head start by choosing what you’re going to wear for the week. (This could translate to a few more minutes of sleep in the morning.)
The thing is, Sunday is still the weekend. Plan to keep it that way. Whether it’s staying in and watching Netflix or going out and having brunch, you deserve to set time aside from work and thinking about work.
Set your intention
Setting your intention doesn’t have to mean writing in your planner. It means reminding yourself what matters to you and what will guide you throughout the week. It could be as simple as staying hydrated or bigger shifts like changing your language to “yes” and “we.”
Look over your week
If you are anticipating a particular event this week -- an interview, appointment, proposal, or deadlines -- get it down on your Trello board, sticky note, or planner. Just keeping an eye on what’s coming up makes the week go a little smoother and prevents surprises.
