A study says if used right, Sundays have the power to carry you through the whole week. Here is how you can use your Sunday to the fullest.
When you think about Sunday, you think about lazing around in bed watching Netflix or going out with your friends or family – that’s about it. With modern busy lives, most of us don’t get time to do half of what we want to do on a sunny Sunday. But taking some time off work will rejuvenate the mind and allow you to tackle work with a fresh mind on a Monday.
But is one Sunday enough to recharge you for the whole week? It may seem inadequate but a study says if used right, Sundays have the power to carry you through the whole week. Here is how you can use your Sunday to the fullest.
Hit the Gym
If you find it impossible to go to the gym on a weekday, go on a Sunday and make it a habit. Maybe this is your chance to get healthy and fit. And physical and mental health are two sides of a coin. If you are physically fit, then you will be mentally fit as well.
Take out Time for a Hobby
Since there are probably a whole lot of things on your list to-do which you haven’t been able to. You can do all of those things you didn’t get the time to do before on a Sunday. Learn a new language, learn to paint, sketching – dive into a hobby and stick to it.
Go Out with a Friend or Family Member You Haven’t Seen in a While
As much as it is important to take time out for yourself and enjoy the little things in life, meeting a friend or family member you haven’t met in a while is also very important. Meeting them will also take your mind off work stress and your hectic life.
Take it Slow
You don’t have to rush out of your bed the first thing Sunday morning. Have a long and good night's sleep so that you wake up fresh and lively. Make your favorite breakfast, enjoy it without thinking too much about the day or the upcoming week.
Make Sunday a Spa Day
Sometimes we get too exhausted with the week and get no time to relax. You get too tired and feel like that you are not ready to go through this again the next week. To relax your mind and body, visit a spa and get a massage, manicure, foot massage (whatever works for you). This will enable you to enter the new week with full enthusiasm.

Plan the Upcoming Week
After a full day of relaxation and self-reflection, take some free time out and plan out the upcoming week. Think of the major things you have on your schedule the upcoming weekend and make a list. Prioritize the things that need the most attention.
Planning the upcoming week will help you systematically do everything. You will not be worried about how you will manage everything. This will also allow you to know what exactly is it that you need to do on a particular day.
