Confession: I've always had a love/hate relationship with Sundays. On one hand, they're a great bookend to the weekend, perfect for sleeping in, recovering from Saturday and on particular rainy ones, they're practically made for marathons of Blacklist or Downton Abbey (depending on my mood, of course).
On the other hand, I secretly dread them. When you have a slew of early Monday morning meetings, most of which are presentation heavy, that means Sunday afternoons can be spent toiling away in front of a laptop late into the evening.
My name is Krystal and I suffer from the Sunday Blues.
Lately though, I've been trying to turn this around with a few little updates to my routine. While I can't necessarily do anything about the amount of work that still needs to get done before Monday morning, I'm changing the way I go about approaching it. Perspective is everything, after all. Starting with, of course, how I dress for the day.
Ever since I was little, I've had a special soft spot for Hanes. They're a powerhouse for unbeatable, affordable basics and I may have stolen more than my fair share of broken in Hanes undershirts from past boyfriends. (Sorry, not sorry -- the slouch is just too good!) Even today, I love how easily they slip into the every day routine, even if that routine is say, lounging around in boy short underwear and a comfy tee and reading magazines, which is to say, what my Sunday morning looks like before my coffee run. From there, depending on the errands that need to be run that day, I'll frequent between different states of reading in bed, catching up on blog and work emails before noon until finally slipping on boyfriend jeans to take Elvis for a long walk on the beach.
Slipping in just these little moments of "me" time as made all the difference in the world and I usually end up approaching that amount of work I "need" to get done later that day with a renewed sense of purpose so I can finish early (and tuck myself into a good guilty pleasure TV marathon). Oh, and if there's a date night in the works for that evening, I may slip into a little dance session around the house (kinda like the gals here). Dance like no one's watching, right?
How do you spend your Sundays?
