10 things you can do on a sunday for a better week

 Sunday: for some people a lazy day, for the another a day to be active. No matter how you spend your Sunday, there are a number of things you can do that will prepare you well for your week. Apply these tips and you start your Monday a lot better and more organized. Sounds good, right? 

1. GROCERIES

Do you work a lot or do you go to school? Use you sunday to do your groceries. So you know for sure that you can make all your mealpreps and you have enough healthy and tasty things for the rest of the week. And most of the time it’s more quiet on a sunday in the supermarket!

2. TIME TO PREP

Sunday is the best time to make healthy snacks and meals for the upcoming week. Bake a healthy and tasty cake and make a few bowls with lunch and diner. Put it in the fridge or freezer and you can eat healthy for the whole upcoming week!

3. ME TIME

Do you take the time to take good care of yourself? From now on, plan an hour or more every Sunday to take care of yourself. Take a bath or a hot long shower, scrub your skin, apply a mask and paint your nails. You will feel reborn!

4. MAKE A PLAN

Do you have a busy week ahead of you? Take your time to organize your plans. Make a schedule for each day and write everything you have to do. When you have to exercise, what you are going to cook, when you have that important appointment with your colleague. Like that, you know for sure that you have all the time to do all your things. And it also prevents stress!

5. CLEAN YOUR HOUSE

Nobody likes cleaning, right? But how nice is it, if you come home on a Monday and your house is perfectly clean. Make it a habit to clean your house on a sunday. Do your laundry, vacuumclean your house and change your bed sheets.

6. OUTFIT ON POINT

Do you have nothing to wear every morning when you wake up? Use an hour on your Sunday to prepare your clothes for the upcoming week. Another tip: look at the weather forecast to adjust your clothes to the weather! 😉

7. WORKOUT TIME

Do you literally have no time to exercise this week? Now is the perfect timing! You don’t have to leave the house, because you can search for an ”at home workout” on YouTube.

8. QUALITY TIME

Is your pet home alone this upcoming week? Use your Sunday to catch up on lost time! Give your cat or dog some extra attention. They will thank you for that. 🙂

9. MOTIVATE YOURSELF

Compose the ultimate music list with songs that make you feel super powerful, collect the best motivational quotes and set a number of goals you want to achieve this week. Motivation guaranteed!

10. LEARN SOMETHING NEW

Spend your Sunday useful by teaching yourself something new. Join a workshop, do a new sport, listen to a podcast or read a book. You can never have enough knowledge!

 

What do you think? Are you going to rock this week? I know that I will! Let us know what you do on a Sunday in the comments or on social media 🙂

Time Takeover

When life gets crazy, how do you make time for your passion?I’ll admit it, I’m obsessed with fitness. I love working out; it is my stress relief, my safe harbor and my daily routine. So what happens when work, errands, exhaustion and well, life…..get in the way?

 

I started working 10 hour days and now, finding a balance is harder than it was even a month ago. So how do I stay motivated? Sometimes it’s something as simple as wearing my gym clothes to work so I have no excuse to not go. Other times it is looking at progress photos I’ve taken, reminding myself how much hard work and dedication I have already put in.

I haven’t gotten this far to only go this far.

When I’m at work, I make sure to stand up, walk around and get moving every 20-30 minutes to keep my blood moving. Taking the stairs instead of the elevator and making sure I have healthy, prepped meals makes a big difference in the long run.

Ultimately it comes down to self-motivation. How bad do you want what you’re working for? Even 30 minutes of activity a day is better than none at all. Whether you lift heavy, run hard, or take 30 minutes to do steady state walking on a treadmill, you are still doing something. 

Don’t forget to practice self-love. If you have a day that beat you up and you want to go home, watch some Netflix and eat a cookie….do it. Don’t beat yourself up. That is the beauty of re-starting every single day with a fresh perspective and a new opportunity to be great. When you’re striving to better yourself, staying active is no longer a chore or a hassle, it becomes something you want to do every day. Even if it means rushing in, getting up early or staying up late to get it done.
