Here are some particular things I always do apart from going out for a movie or for an outing on Sundays for a productive and easier week ahead. I don’t want you to contribute your whole Sunday to this but just give 2-3 hours and you will notice a difference.
Prepare a To Do List For The Week
This task may not be appealing to some of you but trust me this helps a lot in organizing the week and getting all the work you have on mind done on time. Jot down all the meetings and work you have for the week on a rough paper. Write anything and everything, this will give a clear view and not let you skip even the smallest task that is swimming around your mind. Once written, prioritize the hardest deadlines, then refine to make it efficient. Now take your phone and write the tasks of each day of the week on the calendar. Obviously, each day of the week cannot be predicted but this way will at least help you get your personal tasks done on time.
Clean Your Work Desk/Bag/Emails
A clean desk helps unclutter mind and work more efficiently. Cleaning your work desk will actually bring peace to your mind, help locate things easily during the week which will make you focus better on other important tasks you have in your to-do list which will make you focus better on other important tasks you have in your to do list.
Go For A Walk Without Your Phone
Once you have penned down your work for the week ahead and decluttered your desk or bag, go for a peaceful walk alone, get in some fresh air or exercise. This will instantly boost your mood and make you fresh for the week ahead. For those of you who work from home, make it a habit to practice this daily.
Whip Up A Batch Of Jam/ a Beauty Product/ Anything You Like
Make anything you love. A batch of body butter or a face mask or even a jam. The satisfaction you get on making your own products is just amazing.It is calming and therapeutic. This is my favorite thing to do by the way.
How can a Sunday be complete without pampering your skin and hair?? Light up a candle, read a book and cover your hair with oil and your face with a mask or even practice Abhyanga. You will feel more rejuvenated and energized for the week ahead if you spend some time taking care of you.
