1/ Make plans for Monday - In order to defuse the building dread of the week ahead, why not plan for some things that are worth looking forward to - lunch with a friend, a night at the cinema, post-work drinks - you may not be able to shrink the responsibilities of the coming week, but you can make Monday's more fun.
2/ Have a little 'me time' - Why not dedicate those dreaded Sundays to a much-needed pamper session? Turn your Sunday into something to get excited about, like curling up with your favourite book or having a well-deserved binge on Netflix.
3/ Busy yourself - You know the old saying, time flies when you're having fun, so make Sunday go by in a blink by making yourself busy! Make Sunday a designated day for hobbies or chores, you'll find that the more you do, the less you'll think about the looming week ahead.
4/ Sleep, sleep and more sleep - Sunday is commonly referred to as the day of rest, so have a duvet day and unplug for a while. Don't feel guilty for being "unproductive", this is your day off and you can do with it as you wish!
5/ Identify the problem - Just can't seem to relax? Then take some time to reflect upon your worries and woes to pinpoint the problem. Perhaps getting in touch with some friends or colleagues can help alleviate your fears. And remember, you've survived countless Mondays in the past, you CAN do this.
6/ Escape - Cabin fever sometimes tends to set in when we're home alone with no tasks to spur us on. Don't sit in staring at the four walls - go out and make your own entertainment. Get a breath of fresh air by heading to the shops or hitting the gym, you'll find Sunday will go faster if you fill it with activities!
7/ Make a change - If you find yourself repeatedly anxious week after week, perhaps a short-term solution isn't the answer. Ask yourself if what you're currently doing makes you happy, maybe it's your job or your university course that fills you full of dread. Remember that it's YOUR life and that you deserve every happiness!
