I feel like there are two types of people when it comes to Sundays: those who dread it and those who love it. Those who get the Sunday scaries and those who just love the start of the new week. Those who LOVE a productive Sunday and those who well don’t. There is no right or wrong way to Sunday. I personally love a productive Sunday. With that, I am sharing 8 things to do every Sunday- that I do to ensure I have a productive and great week ahead.
8 Things To Do Every Sunday
Exercise: I always call Sunday my active rest day. I usually do a long walk with my family and some restorative Yoga. I think it’s important to move your body every day and these things really help me take that active rest day and also get my body ready for harder workouts throughout the week.
Get ahead on laundry: Sunday is a great day to catch up on laundry and have everything done to start the week!
Meal prep and plan: We grocery shop on the weekends and meal plan before that. Then we prep things like chicken, hard-boiled eggs, cut up fruits and veggies for the week, make muffins for breakfasts, etc. This way healthy things are there and prepped and you are less likely to eat junk.
Read: Taking time to read is so important. It could be a book, an article, anything that makes your mind work.
Refill ALL THE THINGS: Go through your house and refill soaps, coffee pods, tissues, toilet paper, etc. I always feel like starting the week with everything refilled just feels right! It also makes you feel like you have your ish together a little more.
Change your sheets/wash your towels: This is something else we always do on the weekend. I change our sheets and the kid’s sheets and wash all the towels. Towels get washed during the week too but this way we start the week with everything fresh and clean.
Get organized for Monday morning: Things could mean laying out your clothes for work, the gym, etc. Laying out your kids clothes, making everyone’s lunches, prepping breakfasts, filling water bottles and having them in the fridge ready to go, etc. I love going to bed knowing all of this is done.
Rest: Of course! Rest is important too and feeling tired to start the week is NEVER fun! It’s such a good feeling to be able to rest, take a nap, whatever feels good to you and your body.
