Make Sundays Lead To Your Successful Week

1. Set aside time for self-care: Relax and do something that brings you joy. Take a hot bath, read a book, meditate, or whatever helps you unwind.

Here are some more suggestions for things to do in your self-care program —

1. Get a massage or take a tepid bath. I like a lukewarm bath before retiring for the night because if the water is hot, I find it can energize me and when I am energized I find it harder to sleep.

2. Spend time outdoors in nature. When I lived out west, I would take a long walk along a nearby mountain trail in the summertime or I would sit in a wooded area watching the sun go down. This kind of re-energized my batteries, as it were, preparing me for the week ahead.

3. Read a book or watch a movie. One of my favorite books for helping me navigate a new week was “How To Swim With Sharks Without Getting Eaten.” Another was “Think And Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill. (Which is exactly what I did.

4. Listen to music or dance. Soft music like muted Spanish guitars or the kind of music that plays over loudspeakers at certain nightclubs in the early hours of morning….soft music like classical or jazz.

5. Take a yoga or meditation class.

6. Make a favorite meal or snack. I love African Rock Lobster tails with potatoes lyonnaise or a 6-ounce Filet Mignon with asparagus and bearnaise sauce on the side.

7. Treat yourself to a spa experience.

8. Take a nap

9. Practice deep breathing or progressive muscle relaxation

10. Spend time with friends or family

Continued from 1 above:

2. Preview the week ahead: Take a few minutes to review your upcoming schedule and make any necessary adjustments.

3. Set goals for the week: Think about what you want to accomplish and set a few small, achievable goals.

4. Prepare for the week: Make sure you have everything you need to start the week off right. Lay out your clothes, pack your bag, prepare meals, or whatever else you need ahead of time.

5. Disconnect and get a good night’s sleep: Take some time to unplug from your devices and get a full 8 hours of sleep. Paying attention to electronic vices before bed is not a good idea because it tends to disrupt sleep patterns.
