The Sunday scaries can get intense at times, especially when you have a busy week approaching. It’s very important to prepare for the week so you avoid feeling anxious and unprepared. I’m so excited to share my Sunday night routine for you all to see how I get ready for the upcoming week!
In a dream world, I’d like to go to the grocery store and meal prep for the week on a Sunday but I love going grocery shopping with Zach and planning our dinners for the week with him so we do all of that every Monday after work since he wants to relax on Sundays.
To get my life in order, I like to check my planner and add everything in there and I also like to make to-do lists for every day of the week so I can be as efficient and organized as possible. It’s so satisfying crossing a task off of my to do list. It’s also much easier having about three tasks to accomplish per day versus having a super long list of things to get done all in one day. I have this planner and I absolutely love it. It comes with stickers and has weekly layouts as well as monthly ones. The best part is its totally customizable and has add on features that you can buy separetly. Mine is black leather with my monogram in rose gold with a rose gold spiral as well! Bonus: everything on their site is currently 25% off and free shipping over $75!
That’s mostly what I do to get my mentality ready and motivated for the week so let’s get onto the physical preparation!
I absolutely believe that it is so important to take care of yourself because you only have one body for the rest of your life. To prep my body for the week, I like to take a shower, shave, and use this body lotion to moisturize my skin. Lately, I’ve been super lazy with my self tanner but I usually self tan on Sunday as well. I’m seriously loving this self tanner right now. It works for sensitive skin, it’s very moisturizing, and smells like coconut!
After my shower, I like to do a face mask and my lip care routine. My favorite face masks are this GlamGlow mask and this Loreal mask. Both masks deeply cleanse your skin and are cool and relaxing. Right before bed, I pat this luxury marula oil all over my face and lips to add extra moisture. After I wash off my mask, I like to exfoliate and moisturize my lips. My lips tend to get dry because I have a habit of licking them too much and matte lipsticks really dry out my lips as well. I start off by using an this lip exfoliator. I recently ran out of an old one I’ve had for forever so i picked this one up and it does a good job. Then, I use this lip mask from Mary Kay, rinse it off, and apply my favorite conditioning chapstick.
Now, onto hair. I keep it super simple and spray this Redkin Treatment Spray in my hair to condition it and avoid heat damage; then let my hair air dry until Monday morning. Every two weeks or so I like to use this hair mask. I got it as a Christmas gift and it makes my hair super shiny and silky. I use it after I come home from a vacation or after a week where I’ve styled my hair a lot.
Finally, my favorite part of my Sunday is slipping into my pajamas and watching an episode of Grey’s Anatomy on the couch with Zach in our clean house with a fall candle lit and a cup of hot tea in hand. This stress relief tea is my favorite and I drink a cup every night before bed. I always try remember to stay hydrated and have a good dinner to start the week. Whether it’s healthy or a guilty pleasure food, I try to enjoy it and set the mood for a positive work week . However you spend your Sunday, just do you and what makes you happy and calms your nerves. I hope this article gave some ideas on how to make your Sunday stress disappear. Xx
