It is very easy to let your Sunday fly by, by doing virtually nothing because you are dreading the coming week. I absolutely get it because I have a love-hate relationship with Mondays (like you) so much so, I did a satirical and very hilarious piece about that you will absolutely love reading.
See it here: No. Friday Blues Is not Equal Monday Blues
When Friday comes, it doesn’t matter how it comes. Blazing, raining hail and sleets, snowy and everything in between. We don’t care. It is the big Friday party.
We crash the clubs, have a girls night out. Bin*ge on Netflix. Go shopping on Saturdays and then hoping to get some sleep on Sundays.
Sunday comes, and we realize that we haven’t done shit! We realize that there are like 101 things to do, prepare or carry out for the coming week.
That is why having productive habits to adopt on Sundays can help us. A. LOT.
Things To Do On Sunday For The Best Week Ever
Having an amazing week starts with preparation for the week in question. One of my favorite quotes is ”Failing to Plan Is Planning To Fail”
But we don’t fail on Kinging Queen. Even if we do, we don’t let it put us down. Check out this guide on how to plan and achieve your goals: 5 Ways To Set Goals and Achieve Them
Not one bit.
And that is why we have to adopt productive Habits That Will Completely Transform Our Lives!
The urge to sleep in is great on Sundays. Yes, it is ideal to sleep in but when you carry out these 10, trust me, an early night is in the cards and you get to wake up refreshed and supercharged!
Here we go, people.
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 having to do it during a weekday.
2. Plan Your Meals & Prep Them
One other productive habits to adopt on Sundays for an amazing week would be planning your meals for the week and then prepping them.
Imagine having all your meal 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, just about every outfit I wanted to wear, just didn’t suit. 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 kinda 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 detail 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.

You will not only be organized, but you will also ace every single goal you set out to do.
6. Write Out Your To Do List
I can’t begin to count the number of times I forget to write down an idea or something that I needed to do and then completely forgot. Even though I thought it was in my head.
Writing down your To Do list is one of the super productive habits to adopt on Sundays for having an amazing week.
Write it 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.
No more forgetting or missing out an important item.

Journaling is so big now and I see why it is because I have been practicing it and it is a good thing to do.
While this post may be talking about 10 super productive habits to adopt on Sundays for an amazing week, I felt adding Journaling is great.
Journaling does not have to be an every Sunday affair but writing in your journal about your thoughts and feelings from the previous week, will help you decipher a lot of things and put you in a better frame of mind for tackling the coming week.
I have been journaling on and off and it is a great idea.
Get a journal for yourself and start journaling.
It will help with boosting your self-confidence and esteem, relieve anxiety and the likes.

If after all said and done, you up and go sleep late at night, it’d be counterproductive.
Now, we don’t want that. Do we?
So, one super productive habit to adopt on Sundays for an amazing week would be having an early night!
Sleep early. Wake up fully refreshed and ready to tackle your week and the world!
It’s a wrap!
You all know I love hearing from you.

This is a pretty great list of healthy habits to form
These are great tips! I do a lot of these things across Saturday and Sunday. The one thing I don’t do is planning outfits for the week. I definitely end up frantically looking for clothes in the dark each morning because I don’t.
Thanks! Glad to know you do all these! You should master the art of preparing your outfits though LOL. I know how that can drive one crazy and ruin the day for one! Thanks for being part of the conversation, Tamera!
Wow, great list!! I have one to add. My husband and I sit down together on Sunday and talk about the past week. How things went, bad or good. We work through issues and help each other talk. Then we coordinate and plan our schedules for the next week. Talk about anything we’re worried about or excited for. It really helps us feel connected and we look forward to this check-in with one another.
Thank you! Awwwww, I love how you and your partner talk about things and then plan the week together! That is not only sweet, but I also bet it increases your productivity and in turn, improves the quality of your lives! I hope I get a partner like that! You plan together, you stay together! Thanks for visiting and taking time to comment Clarrisa. I appreciate and do have a productive week!
Loved these suggestions – reading these I couldn’t help but think why I hadn’t been doing a few of them on Sundays to make my work week feel less stressful. Yet another inspiring post by you, Jennifer. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks, Aditi for your warm comments! I appreciate you reading and also taking the time to join the conversation! Let me know how these suggestions help out after you may have done them today (being Sunday)!
This is great. Very well thought out. The only thing I would add is for parents (I am single parenting 7 kids right now) is to go over the kids’ schedules for the week with each of them. I have a big whiteboard calendar with a row for each kid that has their weekly schedule. I fill it in on Saturdays, but make sure to go over the week with each child seperately.
Thanks Karla for visiting and taking the time to also comment! I absolutely love your suggestion and I am going to update this blog post by including your suggestions! Have a beautiful week!
The list is completely incredible. I will try to follow it as much as possible.
Thanks Samar and thanks for reading!
I totally agree that meal prep and planning your week are really important activities for the weekend. It makes the rest of the week so much more fun and productive.

Let me just say that any day sounds like a good one to get a massage. Getting one on Sunday though, would surely be a good way to prepare for the new week.
Hahaha, yes to having massages, every day!
Wow, such a great idea..! Planning for the week will make it more organize. Thanks for sharing.

Of course, Dana! Thanks for visiting my blog!
Yes to massages LOL!
I love that your ideas are all in preparation for the workweek to come, and to mentally prep so that things will be better.
Thanks, Kathy and thanks for reading! Have a fab week!
As a working mom of one, I could use most of these tips! Thank you xx
You are most, Avanti!
My day off is on Monday! I hope I can have Sunday to myself next time. Nowadays, I really love journaling and having the time to reflect on myself. It’s essential for me especially when I’m not having a good day.
These are great habits! My Sundays are usually less than productive. Will have to start using these!
Way to go, Wren! all the best and cheers to having amazing weeks!
Sunday is my favorite day. Aside from being a part of the our church’s praise and worship team, I don’t do much but planning for the week. I love planning my outfits as well, it’s just much convenient.
Sundays are also my favorites! The outfit planning is the big one for me because if I don’t, my week in most cases is messed up! Thanks, Fae, for visiting my blog!
Oh boy! I need to start planning my week better on Sunday! I make a to-do list on Monday but I really need to start a day earlier.
Yass to starting a day earlier and cheers to amazing weeks for you!
I have my own list of productive habits too and I have to say quite a few mirror your list. Journaling tops that list! Thanks for sharing!
You are most welcome and thanks for joining the conversation!
Hello Jennifer, I agree! To do lists, grocery shopping and doing house chores is part of our weekend too.
Thank you for these ideas, I’m gonna have to start implementing the massage!
Yes to massages! May our lives be filled with great ones that leave our bodies all languid and relaxed! Oh, and cheers to having amazing weeks!
I love that quote. It actually helps remind me to be more productive! These are all great tips. I love planning my week on Sunday 🙂
Thanks. It is always a good idea to plan your entire week, on a Sunday!
Plan your work, that is the most important one to me!
Yes to planning your week! Thanks for stopping by Selma!
I live by a planner. Anytime it falls out of use things go haywire. Meal plan and prep is also an essential and Sundays are my days to do it. Great job!
Hey Coralyn, I don’t know how life would be like without a planner! Thanks for stopping by and thanks for joining the conversation!
Hey Jennifer! I follow a lot of these tips as well and I do think planning your meals on Sunday is soooo helpful! It definitely sets you up for a successful week and you are way likelier to make healthy choices! The one tip I need to start implementing is having an early night. I need more sleep! 🙂
Hey Nicole! Good to have you on my blog! Yes, meal prepping is a huge deal and it sure does make the week better when it’s all done on Sundays. Who doesn’t need sleep LOL? I need to sleep 24 hours Lol! Thanks for stopping by and contributing!
I’ve been contemplating starting journaling, but I’m not exactly sure where to start, and is there a distinction between general journaling and bullet journaling? What do you suggest?
Jhunelle, I am all for general journaling. To my understanding, bullet journaling would just be like writing down ”bullet” points (as the name suggests) while general journaling, you get to write about a whole lot. I do general journaling and its great!
These are such good ideas! Getting yourself set up on a Sunday for the week ahead is definitely something I need to start doing.
Thanks, Nyxie! All the best darling and have a productive weekend.
