What You Do NOW Determines Your Future! Not TOMORROW! Let’s Put A Stop To Procrastination!
Do not waste even a single Sunday. You’ll be less inclined to waste Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays if you don’t waste SUNDAYS.
Winning the first part of Monday, in my experience, sets a positive tone for the rest of the week. You’re already behind if you wait until Monday morning to prepare your week. The weekend is the perfect time to establish intentions. Naturally, Sunday is an excellent day, or night, to set the tone for the next week.
Here are 5 simple yet effective habits you may start on Sundays to help you have a productive week. You’ll have a spectacular year if you have enough beautiful weeks. You will live a fulfilled life if you have many beautiful years.
1. Set Goals For Yourself
During the week, you probably put in a lot of time and effort for your company or others. Sunday is the ideal day to savor the unique experiences in your life.
Let go of any judgments as you consider what makes you happy. It doesn’t matter if you spend this time playing with your kids, going to yoga, reading a book, or sitting in solitude in a peaceful spot. This time may be whatever you need it to be to recharge, feel fulfilled, and go into the week with a lot of enthusiasm.
2. Make A List Of Your Weekly Objectives
It isn’t easy to win the week if you don’t know what you want to create or accomplish when you get up Monday. Use Sunday night to reflect on the past week, consider your short and long-term goals, and set goals next week.
I’ve begun to take this exercise to a new level. Rather than concentrating just on productivity and business goals, I also consider how I want to feel that week. This forces me to use my awareness to assess how I’m feeling right now and judge if it’s in line with how I want to feel. If it isn’t, I can establish a new week’s intention.
You may combine the benefits of the brain space and the feeling body by executing both the practical and the emotional intentions. You benefit from the emotions’ intuition and direction and the mind’s creativity and execution when you work together.
3. Make A List Of Your Accomplishments.
Too many of us are just concerned with our jobs. We are entering pandemic levels of work stress and concern with society’s ideas of success as a society. We’re pursuing milestones, promotions, and titles at the expense of the things that make us happy personally.
Check in on how your life is going to avoid falling into that trap. Are you dedicating time to the things, people, and experiences that bring you joy? Are you making plans for the trip you’ve always wanted to take, or are you postponing it? Are you creating personal goals and devoting time and effort to achieving them? Are you following a professional path that makes you happy?
YOUR JOB ISN’T THE SAME AS YOUR LIFE — Make a point of remembering this every Sunday.
4. Get Disconnected With Techs
Too many of us spend practically all of our workday in front of a computer or a screen with an LED backlight. This not only has physical consequences for our bodies, but it also causes us to feel disconnected from ourselves and others. Social media has only served to widen this division.
Take a vacation from social media and put your gadgets away to give your body, mind, and spirit rest. Feel what it’s like to see and feel life through your own eyes and senses, and spend time interacting with actual people.
When you take a break and live in the moment, the world is a lovely place, and life is a real TREAT.
5. Switch To Black And White Mode On Your Phone.
Switching my phone’s display from color to black and white before going to bed on Sunday night immediately affected my attitude and physiology.
During the week, I find that setting my phone to black and white minimizes the visual input that fatigue my brain and activates my nervous system and the amount of time I spend on social media. It serves as a reminder that my phone is only a tool, not my life. On the weekends, I barely use the color on my phone.
Our habits significantly influence how we perceive life, yet they sometimes go unnoticed — establishing healthy behaviors that allow you to maintain a higher baseline of happiness, health, and contentment.
Consider incorporating only one of these activities or routines into your Sunday until it becomes ingrained. After that, go on to the next one. You’ll eventually be able to maintain all of them, and you’ll be happier and healthier as a result.
