Sunday Routine To Have a Better Week Ahead


I think we've all heard the expression 'the best Monday morning begins on a Sunday evening' right? If you haven't heard that saying before, don't worry, I will explain it in this post.

Sundays are usually days we associate with relaxing, sleeping in and just laying around but Sundays are also the days that precede a brand new week, meaning they're the perfect days to get everything organized and ready for the next week. I know, I know, it sounds super boring. I mean, who wants to be doing any kind of work when you can be melting into your sofa? But trust me on this: your upcoming week will go much better if you just take a few moments of your Sunday to get everything ready to go.

SELF CARE

In order to start your week right, you should definitely take good care of yourself so you can be in your best shape. Take a relaxing shower or bath, exfoliate, do a face mask, paint your nails. There are a ton of different things you can do for yourself on a Sunday that will make you feel good and want to tackle the upcoming week head first.

Self-care doesn't only mean beauty-related stuff. Other things you can do on a Sunday to have a better week ahead that can be considered self-care are planning your meals, planning your outfits and planning your workouts.

CLEAN YOUR HOME/ ROOM

A clean space equals a clear mind. Having your home clean, although it sounds like such a trivial thing, it does really help you to feel motivated and ready to work. If you're someone who isn't really into cleaning, try setting a 10-minute timer and clean up as much as you can during that time. Once that timer ends, the most likely thing to happen is that you will want to continue to clean and when you come to, you will have cleaned your entire room.

REVIEW THE PREVIOUS WEEK

Go over your to-do list from the previous week and check what you've competed and what you still have to do. Those to-do's that are yet to be completed should be transferred into next week's to-do list. Along with that, you should clear out your inbox and your desktop. It feels amazing seeing a clear inbox and desktop.

PLAN THE NEXT WEEK

As I said above, the to-do's you weren't able to accomplish in the previous week should be transferred into next week's to-do list. with that, jot down new tasks, if you have any.

GO TO BED EARLY 

This is the most important step to start a new week right. Having a good night of sleep will improve your mood significantly and we all know how being in a good mood on a Monday is important to have a good week.

I've seen a lot of other people doing this kind of post where they show their favorite pictures they took in a certain amount of time (usually a month) and I've always found it pretty cool. Someone once told me you can see people's real interests and loves if you look through their camera roll and I think it's very true.

Today I decided to give this a go so I gathered my favorite pictures I took in the last month and a half to share with you guys.

How To Find Time To Read

how-to-find-time-to-read


I love reading. I really do. Right before I started writing this blogpost, I finished reading 'Crazy Rich Asians', the 3rd book I've read in the last 3 weeks. It sounds like a lot -and let's admit it, it is a lot- but to me, it didn't feel like a lot at all because reading is something I truly enjoy ever since I was a little girl.

Reading takes up quite a bunch of time, though, and a lot of us feel like we don't have time to read so we don't even try. Today I'll show you a few ways you can introduce reading into your life easily.

Set Reading Goals 

Don't go crazy on this one. Setting a goal of reading 100 books in a year when you spend most of your time working, studying or doing whatever else will do nothing but let you down at the end when you only read a fifth of that amount.  Start with a small goal and as time passes and you being to understand the amount of time you have to read, adjust it.

Make Accessing Books Easy For You 

Having a book with you at all times can be a burden but that doesn't mean you can't have said book with you at all times. Digital books are a God-send for us book lovers. I know a lot of people prefer physical books (I for instance do) but you just have to adapt to modern times. Having a book ready to read on your phone, kindle or tablet when you're out will end up giving you a lot more time to read. 

Create a Reading Routine

There's this youtuber I follow who reads a book everyday while she's having breakfast. She doesn't have any more time during the day to read so she created a routine that enables her to read everyday, even if it is for a mere 10 minutes. Try finding a time slot on your day where you can fit a small reading session.

Choose Books You Love

Just like in fashion, there are certain books that become trendy and people feel the need to read because everyone else is reading it too. You shouldn't do that because, if you don't actually like the book, you'll end up having a 'reading break-up' meaning you'll fall out of love with the act of reading.

While that probably won't last forever, it'll probably last long enough for you to think twice when picking up a new book to read again. That, in turn, will probably result in you thinking 'this book will probably suck just like the last one' and you will end up not reading anything for yet another period of time. Choose books that genuinely interest you don't be afraid to put down a book you are not liking to read.


What was the last book you've read?
