Sunday can often be bittersweet. On the one hand, it’s still the weekend so you want to enjoy it to its fullest. On the other hand, you’ve got the Sunday blues in anticipation of having to go back to work on Monday.
Sundays have always been a struggle for me because I like to plan for a productive week, and that means there are quite a few productive things to do. But I also want to relax and enjoy that last day of freedom. The great thing is, you don’t have to choose! I’ve developed a routine for a productive Sunday that allows me to plan for the week ahead, while also making some time to relax.
In this post, I’m sharing 15 productive things to do on my Sunday that will help you to have a better and more productive week!
Juggling between work and home becomes a herculean task for us, the Working Mom. Sometimes, I do feel that I am neglecting my daughter or that I am not addressing her concerns. Thoughts like these comes in my mind and leaves me baffles and confused. But I know that we the mothers have been designed by God to be super sensitive and that is why thoughts like these haunt our mind and that is perfectly OK.
I am working for the well being of our family and that family includes me also. My works give me an identity and a sense of independence which makes me happy. So if I am happy then I can create a healthier environment for my daughter. I know that my daughter miss me but I am sure she is learning the art of self-dependence in my absence and becoming responsible day by day.
“We have to be able to grow up. Our wrinkles are our medals of the passage of life. They are what we have been through and who we want to be.” ~ Lauren Hutton
I don’t know many people who get excited about aging. Birthdays, yes. That number that changes each year, no. Yet, there are some great benefits that come with. No, not the grey hair or the wrinkles. But inner wisdom that can only be gained by years lived. The most important one: Self Confidence.
I have always considered birthdays more of a milestone then the changing of the year. Yes, a new year begins with people making all of these resolutions, as well as annoyingly struggling to remember to write the correct date. But it is birthdays, especially as we age which can bring many more important milestones to mark the passage of time and growth then any resolution. It is our younger selves that as we gain freedom, we learn and grow and as adults we (hopefully) gain more wisdom.
Aging can be controversial. I know many people who hate it. While I might joke about it, I have never been in that category. And now that I am “old,” each year I get is a true blessing. One I don’t take for granted, because so many people don’t get to see another year. Yes, old age brings that thing called adulting, as well as all the wrinkles and gray hair, oopps! But adulting, that word society thinks is so dirty, is incredibly freeing, empowering and confidence building if we are willing to embrace it.
