Don't you hate the feeling of Sunday's night where you keep on thinking about work on Monday? But why not change that negative feeling on a Sunday and start of the day with a positive impact on Monday?
You're probably suffering from the Sunday blues. What is that?
The Sunday blues is when you have negative feelings (sad, depressed, anxiety) on Sundays. You may feel like this due to Monday (yep, that nightmare days of working that 9-5).
If you don't want to suffer those Sunday blues for your whole entire life, then here are 11 tips to eliminate your fears of the Sunday blues.
So grab your mug of coffee or tea and let's get right into it!
1. Wake up early (with a smile on your face)
Waking up to the sunrise can make you feel like you got more time ahead of you for the start of your day. "But weekends is where I sleep in!" I know, I know but it can keep your sleep schedule continuous and would you rather start your Sunday's short?

2. Make yourself a delicious breakfast
You have plenty of time to make yourself a delicious breakfast and it will give your start of the day in a positive mood. Who wouldn't want to Instagram what you have made? Have a feast and you'll end up with energy to do what YOU want to do for the day.
3. Go out for a walk
Sundays are a perfect day to go for a neighbourhood walk and get the exercise you need when you don't have the time during workdays.
Smell the flowers, the air, and the sunshine. Also, grab yourself some exercise and stay active!
4. Write in your journal
Write down your thoughts and slap them into a journal where only YOU can only read. Take your thoughts from what you had yesterday and the weekday before and have a fresh start of mind for the first day of the week, not thinking about the problems you had in work or school.
