Sunday

Imagine this, coming home exhausted on Friday night. I'm tired but optimistic about getting back into doing the things I want to do. But just as I get comfortable hanging out with close friends and family, or completing one of my many projects... 

BOOM! It's five o'clock Sunday night, which means it's time to go back to work. The laundry isn't done, meals aren't prepped, and I have to go to bed early in order to be somewhat rested for whatever is bearing down my door first thing Monday morning. 

This is why Sunday's are the worst part of the weekend! It feels like there''s no time for me to do the things I want to do, or see people I want to see because there's just not enough time to do everything. If you hate Sunday's because of this, your not alone. Here's how I somehow manage to get through this dreaded part of every weekend with minimal anxiety and frustration. 

5. Wake Up Early and Make Breakfast.

I try my best not to eat out in the mornings because it is just too much stress for me to juggle with helping out in the household every morning. So I Ensure to wake up an extra thirty minutes from my normal time and make a functional breakfast. Eggs, bacon, and toast are my staple cooking items as they don't take long to make and keep me full for a good part of the day.

4. Set Time Aside on Friday's to Clear the Mind. 

My key to a successful weekend is to close out my work week as drama free as possible. Of course this is easier said than done, because we all have bosses to report too, co-workers who attempt to drop their emergencies on us at the last minute so they can relax. This is why I set aside thirty minutes every Friday morning before work to focus on deep breathing, and exercise. These two things help clear my mind and get me prepared for whatever is coming my way.

3. Wrap Up Lingering Work Items.

I try my best to clear all of the items due on my work calendar, and then create a list of items coming up in the near future. I then place these tasks into my work calendar so that I don't forget what I need to do next week. This also helps me in letting go of work thoughts throughout the weekend.

2. Avoid Taking on Urgent Issues.

This part is always hard because we can't just simply shut down on Friday afternoon and not answer any messages, or tell our boss no. If something comes up and I need to report out or complete something that is due immediately. I do my best to rectify the concern as quickly as possible. This is why Items five through three are important to stay on top of, as I never know when something unexpected will come up and attempt to through me off course.

1. Enjoy the Time Off

Finally, its five o'clock Friday night! I can now rest with ease. I map out my weekends the same as my work weeks through writing down, and then calendaring my tasks that I need to do around the house or other areas to ensure myself that I stay on track. That way when I am finished I can relax and enjoy some time with my family.

And BOOM! It's five o'clock Sunday night, which means it's time to go back to work. But this time, the laundry is finished, meals are prepped, and there's plenty of time to go to bed early in order to be well rested for whatever is bearing down my door first thing Monday morning. 

Here’s a recap:
