this article by Women's Health addressing the same exact subject, I wasted no time in reading it.
The article details simple little things you can do to make Sunday nights (and Monday mornings for that matter) a little less painful. Andrew and I tried a few of the suggestions last weekend, and guess what? It worked! Last weekend we made sure we had all of our laundry, grocery shopping, bill paying, cleaning, and other chores done by about 3 o'clock on Sunday afternoon. I took my time making a wonderful (if I do say so myself) dinner of spaghetti and meatballs, which Andrew and I enjoyed with a glass of wine. We finished the weekend by cozying up on the couch with hot chocolate and renting a movie on iTunes. It was lovely, and by the time bedtime rolled around, I felt relaxed, and prepared to take on the week ahead.
Tomorrow marks the first official day of my busy season, which means that 12 to 13 hour work days are going to be the norm. In the next few months, Andrew and I will continue to perfect this so that we can enjoy or weekends to the fullest, and when Sunday evening rolls around, feel refreshed and ready to take on the week ahead!
Does any one else struggle with Sunday evening depression? Do you do anything to make Sunday evenings and Monday mornings better for yourself that this article doesn't mention? If so, we would love to hear!
So cheers to Sunday! And may your evening be as relaxing as possible.
