You know the drill: It’s the weekend, and you’re living the high life—and suddenly it hits you. It usually creeps up late afternoon on a Sunday… After you’ve brunched your way to a heart attack and frolicked all afternoon in the park. Monday is looming, and it’s approaching way too fast—the #SundayScaries are getting the best of you again.
We’re always trying to improve your day-to-day life here at MyDomaine. And that includes making your Sunday-night schedule as productive as possible, so you can hit the ground running on Monday morning—all the while beating your #SundayScaries. No more weekend anxiety—follow along these tried-and-tested tricks to your best Sunday night yet.
Marshall Acton Cream Speaker ($249)
Fire up Spotify when you get home to set the tone for the evening—but step away from the Adeles of the world, because now is not the time to start crying over past relationships or texting an old flame. Opt for something cheery and relaxing—a Frank Sinatra album, perhaps.
Staub Graphite Grey Essential French Oven ( $386 ) ($150)
Preparing a few meals for the week ahead ensures that you won't be ordering Seamless mac 'n' cheese for lunch every day. Take the opportunity to check your schedule for the week, and plan around your outings. Large casseroles are great because they are quick to prepare and can simmer on their own. Best of all, you can freeze individual portions, so you'll always have lunches ready.
Kim Seybert Vague Red Wineglass ($56)
Who said cooking needs to be boring? You've set the mood—thank you, Frank—and now you can unwind while chopping carrots. Just remember: One glass a day keeps the doctor away, but three glasses a day and you might need a doctor to pull you out of bed on Monday.
Crate and Barrel 18th Street 4-Piece Place Setting ( $43 ) ($41)
You're an adult, so why would you Netflix and chill on the couch while eating dinner? Set a nice table, light the candles, sit down with your nearest and dearest, and have a real conversation. Sunday suppers are a tradition to cherish, and you'll never have time to think about "the scaries."
Susanne Kaufmann Essential Bath Oil for the Senses ($76)
Take the time to set the mood for a good night's sleep. A relaxing bubble bath is one of the best ways to unwind and go through your beauty routine in preparation for Monday.
Invincible Summer by Alice Adams ( $26 ) ($8)
Pick up that book on your nightstand you've been meaning to read for weeks. Technology is preventing us from getting quality shut-eye more than we think. Turning pages will make you much sleepier than binging on Game of Thrones.
