Back to work tomorrow, so what can you do today to get yourself ready for the week ahead? Here are my tips for Self Care Sunday.
#1- Write a list for Monday
Do you have a lot on your mind about the week ahead? It can really help for a good Sunday night’s sleep if you get those pesky thoughts out of your head onto paper. I like to plan for the week ahead in my Bullet Journal.
#2- Pre-make lunch or brekkie
Over night oats for breakfast? Cous cous jar for lunch? Have a look online for ideas for quick and easy meals that can be made the night ahead. This will make your Monday morning that little bit easier and a lot less rushed.
#3- Meal plan for the week/book a food delivery for tomorrow
This is something I swear has seriously helped us. I know it’s probably a bit too late today, but you could order a shop for tomorrow night (Ocado do free delivery, min spend £40). I plan for the week ahead meal wise, using my recipe books and many issues of Good Food for inspiration. We also make sure we have a stocked freezer for the nights where we don’t want to faff, usually a Friday!
#4- Run a bubble bath
Long week? Feeling tired? Run a bubble bath with your favourite products and look after yourself. Maybe take a brew with you too? Just chill out for a bit and enjoy having nothing to do for that period of time. I like to take a book with me too, so why not do that as well!
#5- Make something easy for dinner
Whilst that Sunday roast dinner is lovely, it can create a lot of work. Why not make something easy for dinner? Check out my Comfort Food Recipes for a few Sunday night comfort ideas. Make enough for 2 nights then you won’t have to worry about Monday’s dinner either!
Treat yourself! It’s Self Care Sunday, if you’re feeling blue why not have some chocolate. Bahlsen have just released PiCK UP! Minis in two different flavours. These make a good treat with a brew, although it is hard to stop yourself from eating the whole packet!
