1. Clean out your purse or bag
By the end of the week your bag has become a black hole filled with random receipts, gum wrappers, loose change, and that random flyer the guy handed you on the way to work. Empty out all the unnecessary things you’ve collected and organize the important stuff so you know where everything is. It’ll make your life seem a little more "together".
2. Go shopping for the whole week
Grocery shopping on Sunday and planning your meals for the week will not only help you eat healthier, but it’ll also free you up from having to run back to the store every other day.
3. Prepare Monday morning breakfast
Getting a good start to the week is crucial and having your breakfast ready to go in the morning will save you time, keep you on schedule, and allow you to start the day comfortably.
4. Make some time to catch up with family and friends
Weekdays are super hectic, so it’s easy to go for days if not weeks without talking to people you care about. Instead of shooting off a quick text, take the time to call or hang out with someone on Sunday.
5. Get outside
It’s tempting to stay cooped up in the house because either you’re having a lazy Sunday or you’re too busy getting something done, but getting outside will raise your vitamin D levels, improve your mood and self-esteem, get you more exercise, and better your concentration.
6. Wash your sheets and towels
Doing laundry is the worst. But if you think about it, the last thing you want to do after taking a wonderful shower is dry off in a towel or lay in a bed that’s covered in bacteria! You’re supposed to wash your towels after every three uses, as Kelly A. Reynolds, Ph.D., an environmental health science professor at the University of Arizona, previously told BuzzFeed Life.
7. Find something that inspires you to stay motivated throughout the week.
Find something inspirational – a picture, quote, song, book, video – that you can reference every time you need a little push.
