98 Owasso apartments are filled with all kinds of people, from students to working professionals to busy parents. Each and every one of our residents spends their Sunday nights doing something different to avoid thinking about the tasks waiting for them during the upcoming week. Some people binge watch Netflix shows until the app has to stop and ask if they’re still watching. Other people spend the evening watching a mind-blowing documentary that they’ll tell their coworkers about around the water cooler on Monday. Generally, documentaries about cults and/or aliens are guaranteed to produce good topics for Monday morning break room conversation.
The more enlightened individuals among us will opt to read a book in bed, a far more relaxing experience than the aforementioned alien documentary. Some people take long showers, some take long baths. Some of us eat ice cream, some of us eat cheese and crackers. There are those of us who make it a point to go out to eat on Sunday nights, and then there are those of us who use that night to practice our cooking skills. For some, Sunday night is date night, for others, it's the busiest night of the week, spent getting the kids ready for school the next day. Some people dread Sunday nights because of homework, others avoid checking their email in case one of their coworkers decided to get a head start on the work week.
People do so many different things on Sunday nights because everyone is just trying to find something that works. Of course, once Monday comes along it's never actually all that bad, but it's hard to tell that to someone who’s been enjoying their weekend and is now sitting at home on Sunday night, watching its final hours slip away.
Luckily, the team at 98 Apartments Owasso has you covered with this blog. In this week’s post we’ll be talking about three quick and easy things our residents can do on Sunday nights to make Mondays a little more manageable.
Clean Up Your Space
A good way to signal to your mind that the weekend is ending is to clean up your house. It sets a clean slate for the week, so you don’t have to come home to a messy house after a long hard Monday. Next time Monday seems a little too daunting, bust out the 409 spray and watch your stress levels drop.
Jot Down A To-Do List for Tomorrow
It’s 8 p.m. on Sunday night and your brain is bouncing back and forth between this week’s workload and the errands you have to run. Humans have a tendency to overestimate how much they have to do, but you can alleviate some of this stress by writing down a to-do list for the coming week. For some reason, writing a task down takes it off your mind, and you’ll sleep easier knowing your list will still be there waiting for you in the morning.
Lay Out Your Clothes
You’re going to want to minimize the number of decisions you have to make on Monday morning. Ideally, you can roll out of bed and roll out the door without ever having to actually use your brain to do anything important before you get in your car to drive to work or class. Laying your outfit out ahead of time is one small thing you can do that will pay big dividends in the morning. Plus, you’re bound to make better clothing choices when you’re fully awake on Sunday night as opposed to half-awake on Monday morning.
