Most people will tell you they don't love Sunday evenings.
In fact, a whopping 76% of American workers say they get the Sunday-night blues, according to a 2015 Monster survey.

1. They plan something fun
"This idea may be the most important tip," Vanderkam writes. "This extends the weekend and keeps you focused on the fun to come, rather than on Monday morning."
Vanderkam quotes Caitlin Andrews, a librarian, who says her extended family gets together for dinner almost every Sunday, alternating houses. "It takes my mind off any Sunday night blues that might be coming on," Andrews says.
You might also make Sunday a movie or spa night, or you could join a Sunday-night bowling league.

3. They exercise
Take a walk, play a game of tennis, or go to a class at the gym, Egan suggests.
Vanderkam writes in her book that reality-TV producer Aliza Rosen does hot yoga at 6 p.m. on Sundays. "It's a great way for me to sweat out the toxins of the week and center myself for Monday," Rosen told Vanderkam.
