If you ever feel a wave anxiety rush over you every Sunday before the week begins, you’re not alone. The Sunday Scaries are a real thing that a lot of us deal with every week. The dread of Monday morning, the weight of responsibilities to come, and just feeling overwhelmed by the daunting week ahead can cause immense anxiety. Luckily, there are things we can do to avoid this awful feeling. In reality, once you get your week going, it’s not as bad as you build it up to be in your mind. So the key to fighting off those Sunday Scaries is to stop obsessing over the week ahead and to start focusing on the present, specifically what you can do to relax your mind. Here’s what I recommend.
Enjoy your coffee in bed.
I love a slow morning. If I could take my time every morning and just work in the afternoon, I would. So why not make your Sunday morning extra enjoyable? Once you’ve rolled out of bed, pour yourself a yummy cup of coffee and get right back under the covers :). I’m always craving iced coffee in the summertime. I’m SO glad I discovered Coffee-mate® Natural Bliss® Cold Brew! It’s made from 100% Brazilian Arabica beans, all natural ingredients, real milk and cream, and it’s steeped cold for a smooth flavor. The best part is, it’s ready-made cold brew coffee in a 46oz bottle so it can serve a ton of people. I love the Mocha and Sweat Cream flavors! Soooo good! (It’s only available on the West Coast and you can find out where to buy it right here).
Make your favorite breakfast.
Because you have all the time in the world on Sunday mornings, take some time to make your favorite breakfast....
