COMBATING THE SUNDAY SCARIES!
Don’t Let Your Monday Ruin your Sunday
Your Sunday Seven!
1. Take a walk down memory lane
This past Thursday marked the 20th anniversary of my college graduation.
While I am still trying to figure out how that is possible despite the scientific passage of time, I can tell you I took a little walk down memory lane while looking for a few pictures from the day.
Man, I miss the analog days of sorting through physical pictures, so I encourage you to do it!
Get out that picture box and share some memories with your family.
Too young to remember 35mm?
Scroll through some older digital photos you don’t have stored on your phone.
I promise it’ll put a smile on your face!
2. Have some strawberries and shortcake
Not only is it the season for this delicious summer dessert, today is National Strawberries and Cream Day.
My favorite way to eat strawberry shortcake is on a homemade biscuit instead of the traditional angel food or shortcake. There’s something about that slightly salty and savory contrast that just makes it all the better.
Add a few blueberries to make it even more fun.
Now I’m hungry!
(It’s also national talk like Yoda day. With this information, do as you please, you shall.)
3. Do something you think you’re too old to do!
Age is all relative, and I seem to be reminded of that a lot over the past week.
From this week’s podcast episode with Jennifer Arthurton of Old Chicks Know Sh*T (LISTEN NOW) to the aforementioned college graduation anniversary, I’m trying to forget how stiff I am each morning and trust I’ve still got lots of adventuring to do!
Get out there and do something fun to prove to yourself that OLD IS GOLD.
4. Curate a new playlist
Get a little spontaneous with yourself and make an unpredictable playlist of songs that are a complete departure from your usual choices.
Whether it’s something you haven’t listened to in years, or a new genre, the element of surprise will shift your mood and mindset in a fun way.
5. Reverse your routine
Shake up your Sunday by doing everything in the opposite order from what you usually do.
Start with dinner, then do evening activities, such as books and TV, in the morning.
That’s right – breakfast for dinner this weekend!
I did have pasta for breakfast on Thursday, so this seems like a fitting suggestion now that I think about it.
6. Learn how to COPE with GHOSTING
First dates, job applications, after interviews – ghosting is a reality in all parts of our lives, and my friend Gretta is on a mission to end it.
She’ll be joining me for this month’s FREE Career Co-Op Webinar, and I hope you will too!
Wednesday, May 24th at 11 am MT/ 1 pm ET.
If you can’t attend live, that’s ok. Register anyway, and you’ll receive the recording.
7. Enjoy your patio (porch or other outdoor space)
Now that the weather is (mostly) nice here in Colorado – don’t worry; it’ll snow at least two more times before it’s really summer – Jim and I have been enjoying dinners on our patio!
We’re taking full advantage of being in our new house for a full summer, and I suggest you do the same – spruce up an outdoor space and spend some quality time in it.
There’s just something about dining al fresco.
Here’s to a great week every week!
