I am a believer in Sunday night rituals.
In the winter, I watched Downton Abbey at a friend’s house and ended my weekend with the Countess Dowager. During the summer, I have a picnic dinner and enjoy the outdoor concert at the arboretum. Others may spend their fall with football games.
I think that a routine to end the weekend is a good way to become mentally ready for the week ahead. By planning an enjoyable activity on Sunday night, I enjoy the time off to the fullest. It sends a signal to my brain that the leisure is ending and I get prepared for work to resume on Monday.
What do you do on Sunday nights? Think about whether there is intentionality and routine to wrap up your weekend. It may benefit you as much on Monday as on Sunday night.
