Ahh, Sundays. They make up half of our precious weekend, if you’re one of the ~75% of people who work Monday through Friday. Yet, all too often, the day is dampened by our anxiety and stress about the week ahead — AKA the Sunday Scaries. Let us propose an alternative, one that will let you make the most of your entire weekend, and leave you feeling ready to take on the week ahead: The Sunday Reset.
Our hot take: by combining self-care (which always includes taking our multivitamins)* with the productive to-do’s you need to tackle, you’ll head into Monday with fewer worries, without feeling like you gave your entire day away to errands. Plus, by taking care of yourself over the weekend, you’re getting into a good groove that will make it easier to prioritize your wellbeing during the week ahead. Here is our most-treasured Sunday routine to give you an idea of some things you can do morning, noon and night to make Sunday, dare we say, your new favorite day.
Banish the Sunday Scaries with this Weekend Reset
- Get your ZZZ’s. While experts recommend at least 7 hours of sleep for adults, some of us need more. If you’re used to waking up at the crack of dawn during the week, sleeping a few extra hours can really feel luxurious, and help us feel like we got some extra relaxation time in. So hit that snooze button (maybe once, maybe 12 times — we won’t judge) and pull down your eye mask for a bit. You deserve it.
- Hit those Rituals. Take a Multivitamin and Synbiotic+ (yep, our delayed-release capsule design makes them empty-stomach friendly*) as you think about a delicious, nourishing breakfast. Maybe a smoothie with our Essential Protein, or your favorite vegan pancake recipe. Whatever’s going to make you happy and help you stay on track as you move through your day.
- Get outside. Research tells us that exposure to morning sunlight is good for our mood and helps set us up for a better night of sleep. To double up on health benefits, get moving out there! Try tackling your morning errands on foot, or simply start your day with a walk — you can listen to your favorite podcast, call a friend, or just visualize what you want your upcoming week to look like.
