No matter how much you love your job, chances are that Sunday night brings about a touch of melancholy. Do yourself a favour and make this week a good one by implementing these five simple tips.
Commit to exercising every day this week. That doesn’t mean a hard HIIT session every day, throw in some yoga, a walk, maybe a boxing session. Exercise releases endorphins, which trigger positive feelings in your body. It also helps to reduce stress, burns energy and is known to improve sleep.
2. Call a friend you haven’t spoken to in a while
?We’ve all got at least one of ‘those’ friends. You know, the ones you care so much about, think about all the time, but for some reason never get around to talking to? I’ve got two in my head right now, and if they’re reading this I bet they’ll know who they are.
Nurturing the relationships that are important to you brings happiness and contentment and it’s as easy as picking up the phone. Do it this week and you’ll reap the benefits.
3. Spend some time alone
Stop the glorification of busy! These days it seems like there’s a competition on to be the busiest you can possibly be. Spending time by yourself is healthy though – you shouldn’t need someone else around to entertain you at all times. Grab a book and hang out on the couch, take your iPad down to a cafe alone on Sunday, or even head to the movies.
