How to Overcome the Sunday Night Blues with This 15 Minute Practice

We’ve all been there. Its Sunday, we’ve had a wonderful weekend with family and friends, and them BAM. All of a sudden, you realize tomorrow is Monday — and you get that pit in your stomach.

Whether you call it the sunday scaries, the sunday jitters, the sunday blues, or your weekly existential crisis of “WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE?!”

… on this episode I’ll teach you how a simple 15 to 30 minute practice can completely turn that around for you.

About 10 years ago, I made the decision to start leading a more proactive life. Living a more proactive life TO ME meant I would stop accepting my current reality and demand more from myself and those around me. It meant that I would take control of how I spent the next 7 days, the next 365 days and slowly change my reality to fit a vision of myself over the next 5 years.

All of those things aren’t easy to do. In fact, it is said that only 2% of the population is motivated enough to do any of those things. Even for me, while I wanted massive change in my life, the sunday blues, the sunday jitters, the reality and restrictions of my current life were enough to make me feel paralyzed. To make me just want to escape to watching Netflix.

That’s until I started to do this one simple thing every Sunday. Once I started doing this one simple thing every Sunday. It opened up nearly a decade of productivity for me. It allowed me to get control of my life one week at a time and slowly steer it toward the type of life I always wanted and knew I deserved.

I started sitting down every Sunday for 15 to 30 minutes and started to answer two simple questions:

  1. Where am I?

  2. What do I do next?

Just the process of sitting down and thinking about these two questions forced me to PROCESS what was going through my head instead of just feeling it in the form of angst.

Just by sitting down and dedicating some time to pause and reflect, it allowed me to really dig into what’s going on in my life.

And most importantly just by sitting down and thinking about the week ahead and how I want to go attack it — helped me calm down and start to get more proactive about prioritizing the right things in my week.

Our mission this year is to get a 1,000 people practicing Unstoppable Sunday every Sunday. To take 15 to 30 minutes to answer these two simple questions — that they can beat the Sunday blues, the Sunday jitters, the Sunday scaries.

If you want to join in and be one of the thousand, we’ve made it SUPER easy to get started. We’ve created a Life Planning Book for you that includes this Unstoppable Sunday template.

It’s just a simple Google Doc (and you can download a Microsoft Word version as well).

Every single week, I go into my Sunday document, and you’ll see here  that I’ve been using this particular document for YEARS. And I’ll just work through the two simple questions.

If you follow the link below and download our guide, here’s the template you get. And this is exactly how I go through Unstoppable Sunday every Sunday, and you can too… For every Sunday, I just create a new section, and I answer each of the two questions.

In the template document, you’ll see that we give you some prompts to consider….

This simple practice has been the perfect medicine for me to feel better about the week ahead, and then take steps to get more proactive about my life. It has unlocked nearly a decade of success and productivity for me and I want that for YOU too…
