Try ten minutes of meditation to set the tone for the busy week ahead. A bit of focused attention can reduce stress, improve sleep (key for Sunday nights) and increase creativity so you’re refreshed on Monday morning.
MONDAY: WAKE UP EARLIER
Wake up two (OK, fine, even one) hours earlier than you usually do. Use that extra time to do whatever it is that will make the rest of your day less stressful. You could tend to menial tasks around the house so you free up your evening, squeeze in a workout or just have the luxury of getting ready without rushing.
TUESDAY: TRY BULLET JOURNALING
Grab a pen and paper and try bullet journaling. It’s an analog to-do list that includes inspirational (or just funny) quotes, special events and simple tasks that go beyond “pick up dry cleaning.” (Think more along the lines of “research best three-day vacation spots.”)
