How To Wind Down On Sunday Night For A Great Start To The Week?

Your week has been busy. You cracked your neck and knuckles and you worked your butt off; be it as a 9-5 worker or a freelancer. You worked and your worked and now, your body is sour as if you have worked out for hours and your mind is fried; which as a result led you to apply the jam first instead of peanut butter (I don’t know how many of you encountered that situation but if you did, then girl, you seriously need to wind down)

What you need is a bit of a break and that can only happen once a week. So why not make that one day count? Why not make it special and all about YOU so that you can get your brain working again for the next week? Yes, you have work, I understand. We all do but trust me, doing these things which I’m going to list down will improve your productivity, make you less lazy, make you more focused, and maybe even make you a better cook! Just kidding, us writers are one of the best chefs you can find out there and all we read are recipe books, watched anime, or binge-watched on Zumbo’s just desserts!

Anyway, back to the point. Our brain needs to rest too and we should take care of it just as we take care of our pets. Our brain is our pet and I might sound crazy to you but believe me, you’ll be thanking me at the end of the post because this article will change your Sundays into fun and stress-free days!

Go To Sleep Early:

This way, you can feel more energetic throughout the day and get more work done. 

Cut Out Caffeine:

Believe it or not, caffeinated drinks are our biggest enemy. Sure, it keeps our brain active but it also messes with our sleep pattern, preventing us from getting the 6-7 hours sleep which we desperately need for our minds to clog smoothly.

Set Up An Alarm:

Even if you’re not an alarm person, it’s better to set up a time and wake up at the first one or two rings instead of hitting snooze. It will also be a good habit for you in the future.

Enjoy A Meal:

With you being busy during the entire week, you’ll feel good to make a meal and enjoy it with your family. You can try making new dishes or help your family in the kitchen or maybe even go out to a restaurant and just forget about your work for a while.

Workout:

Working out is proven to make you feel less stressed so take out at least 15-20 minutes of your time to get your stiff body stretching and sweating!

Relax:

You can take a warm bath, go for a spa, or get your nails done. You can even just put on some music and dance your stress off in your bedroom (if you’re too shy) or enjoy a movie time alone, with your significant other or with your family! Sundays are supposed to be all about you so even if you think you have work, just remember that this day won’t come again.

You can even light up scented candles and read a book for a while with a cup of your favorite tea or coffee. You will feel really good and since you’re distracting your mind from working and being all lazy, you can get more work done starting next week.

Set Up Your Weekly Plan:

Take some time out to write down whatever you need to do during the entire week so that you won’t get stressed when a new week starts. This way you can also get more things done and check out all the stuff that you thought you didn’t have time for! Make sure to note down your errands, social events, appointments, and activities.

Doing the abovementioned things can help you start your week with a boost and positivity. You can be ready to jump at work without any worries and you will also be able to more productive and prevent yourself from procrastination.

You know there is one other thing you can do on Sundays and that is to head to my Etsy shop, PoetNextDoor, and buy a digital poetry print that you can hang in any part of your house! 

So what are the things that you like to do on Sundays to start the week off right? Let me know in the comments!

#BlackLivesMatter

I seriously don’t know what’s going on. Why did this had to happen…Why is racism poisoning our hearts? Why are we diving deep down into the roots of race and gender? why are we being so mean to human beings? Aren’t Blacks human? Don’t they have a soul? Don’t they have the right to live?

Can’t we stand up and just say one word together; Enough. Enough. Enough.

Please, it’s enough. How much blood are you going to shed? How many people are you going to bury or hang alive? How many names will you write on the tombstones? how many poetry and songs will you sing?

Aren’t you tired? Aren’t you tired of holding those banners that have the words, Black Lives Matter all over? Aren’t you tired of yelling, screaming, running around under the heat and aren’t you exhausted to see no change?

Blacks are humans too. Just like us, they are kind, merciful, generous, loving and caring then why do you distinguish them? why do you categorize them and label them as ‘others?’ why do you do this? Please, tell me, I need to know.

Even though I’m not a Black, I feel their pain. I feel their grief. I feel their tragic history crawling up to my heart and throat and choking me with sadness. Is this the world we’re living in? Is this what it means to be human? Then isn’t it better to die if all we get is abuse, discrimination, rascim, and comments that break and tear us apart.

When you look at Whites, what do you feel? Nothing.

But when you look at Blacks? Everything?

Isn’t this injustice? Isn’t this called biasness?

Black Lives Matter as much as every lives. You matter, you matter, you matter, George Floyd matters, Breonna Taylor matters, Ahmaud Arbery matters and those lives that are lost in the protests and before matter.

Let’s all become anti-racist so that we can make the world a better place. Is that too much to ask for? Can’t our hearts soften and become kind? Can’t we embrace each other’s ethnicity and background and forget about what our skin color is and just…just shake hands, kiss each other’s cheeks, bump our foreheads and smile?

Please, don’t make this a ‘dream’ but make it a ‘reality.’ Don’t say it’s impossible, say it’s possible and take action! Remember, to start a revolution you don’t need a large group, but one man/woman with a strong voice is enough.

Donate. Sign petitions and support the protests as much as you can.
