Maybe the upcoming week’s workload is overwhelming. Or you’re not looking forward to your commute. Regardless of what is bringing you down, here are a few strategies that will help alleviate the Sunday night blues.

Make Sunday a Fun Day.
Saturdays are usually reserved for fun while Sundays are reserved for chores. Why not change it up? Or at least find a healthy mix. Don’t save all the boring things for the end of the weekend and don’t save all the exciting things for the start of the weekend. A little rearranging could make a big difference.

Prepare for Monday on Friday.
Before you leave work on Friday, prepare for the start of the next week. Glancing at your schedule Sunday night — only to be blindsided by all the tasks that lay ahead — is no fun. Get your to-do list in order before you step out of the office. You’ll feel relieved and will actually be able to enjoy your time off.

Create a new tradition.
Sunday nights are really no different than any other work night. Why not go to the gym or to the movies or out to dinner with friends like you would any other day of the week? Instead of staying home filled with dread, remind yourself that Sunday nights are still your time–so do something you enjoy!
