Productive Things To Do On Sunday For An Amazing Week
1. Go Shopping. For Groceries
I have found that when I go shopping for groceries during the week on my way from work, it is very tiring and I end up buying some unhealthy food items simply because they are quick to make and I didn’t plan very well.
But when I go grocery shopping during weekends, there is a 99% chance that I am armed with a list of what to buy.
To have an amazing week, go grocery shopping. It will save you the headache and extra effort it will take to do it on a weekday.
2. Plan Your Meals & Prep Them
One other productive habit to adopt on Sundays for an amazing week would be planning your meals for the week and then prepping them.
Imagine having all your meals for a week sitting pretty in the refrigerator. Just a matter of taking it out, popping in the microwave, or eating as is!
Your week will thank you for it and stress will be greatly reduced from having to prepare meals either before going to work or after work hours.

3. Things To Do On Sunday: Plan Your Outfits
Oh. This one. This one! What now, you say?
There is this cra*zy week, and just about every outfit I wanted to wear, just didn’t suit me. No matter the combination I used. Changing a belt, a camisole, shoes, etc. None worked.
Who else has had days like that?
Then I arrive at work. Feeling hassled, rattled, disgruntled, unhappy, and every tiny bit of negative emotion in between. You all know what that means. A bad day!
So I learned my lesson. I plan my outfits otherwise it will be an Oh No kind of day.
If you want to have an amazing week, trust me, planning your outfits for the week ahead is one very good productive habit to adopt on Sundays.
Pick out every single outfit for each day of the week on a Sunday. That way, you’ll know if there is a missing button you may need to fix (instead of discovering it the day you want to wear it) if there is a tear in your hose (so you replace it or select something else), a broken zip, etc.
4. Things To Do On Sunday: Plan Your Week
You can never go wrong with planning. Planning your week is a great productive habit to develop. Something to carefully do on a Sunday so as to have a great week.
The tasks you need to carry out for the week, errands you need to run, meetings you have to attend, and everything you need to do during the coming week, plan them on a Sunday.
That way, you don’t leave any details out or forget an important thing.
Ideally, your Monday tasks at the office should have already been written down on a planner (work planner), sticky note, etc.
5. Schedule Your Important Tasks
Scheduling your important tasks for the week on a Sunday will save you a lot of stress and lead to having a super amazing week.
You schedule, get them done and that feeling of accomplishment that comes with completing a task is second to none.
There are a lot of scheduling tools and apps out there that you can use and I have just the sort of blog post on scheduling to help you in scheduling your important tasks.

Writing down your To-do list is one of the super productive habits to adopt on Sundays to have an amazing week.
Write the list down, perhaps of what to do each day of the week. Tick them off one after the other on completion.
That way, having a great week is assured.
