The Sunday night checklist....

The Sunday night fear is a real thing. If there is one night of the week that I can't sleep then it's a Sunday and if there is one morning I'm running late for work, it's a Monday.

So today, I thought I would share some of the ways that I prepare for the week ahead:

Clean up your emails/notifications:

One of my pet hates is having a ridiculous amount of unread emails (I reply to those that need a response during the week) or answer phone messages. So on a Sunday, I go through my inbox etc (remember to check junk) and delete anything that is not required.

Prepare your outfit:

One of the main reasons I run a little late in the morning (apart from hitting snooze)  is the fact that I have the inability to decided on an outfit. Simple solution: prepare your outfit the night before.

Update your diary:

My memory can be like a sieve sometimes and so I use a diary....but I have a bad habit of forgetting to update it. When I do remember, I quite like to update it on a Sunday so I can see what is happening for the week ahead.

Make a to-do list:

Similar to the above, I find that having a weekly to-do is essential to having an organised week. I am actually a bit of a to-do list nut and I have a to-do list for absolutely everything. I love the satisfaction of a completed list.

Have a pamper session:

I don't know what it is but I always feel completely relaxed and ready for the week ahead with a bit of a pamper session on a Sunday. I like to put on a face mask, paint my nails and toes and also give my hair a little bit of TLC. I don't have a bath as my flat is a little small but I do also  like a long shower.

Prepare your food:

If you can, prepare your food for the next day the night before. Whether that is a salad or a sandwich, having it ready to grab and go in the morning makes all the difference. Believe me!

Technology downtime:

Living in the world which is dominated by technology means that it can be hard to switch off. On a Sunday evening, I like to switch off my laptop/tv much earlier than usual and curl up in bed with a good novel. I find that by doing this, my mind is much more at rest and I sleep much better.

How do you combat the Sunday night fear?
