It’s also normal to start feeling lonely and pensive on Sunday night -- especially if you live by yourself. Best way to combat that is to make a standing date with friends or family -- start a weekly film festival, go bowling or just gather to watch your favorite TV show. The point is to be together.
“Even when everything is fine in your life, it’s still a bit of a downer to be sitting around on Sunday just waiting to start the work week,” says Reiss. “Having a Sunday night tradition to look forward to can provide some comfort. Camaraderie and entertainment can help you relax and get ready for the week.”
