"Get your chores out the way and have an evening ritual, such as a long bath and then an episode of your latest Netflix favourite, a cosy supper with close friends or a couple of hours on a pleasurable hobby," says Fuller. Getting outside for a brisk walk can also help, Beresford adds. "Swing your arms as you do so," she advises, "and as evening sets in, write down five amazing or beautiful things you saw or did during the day to keep you in the Sunday headspace."
Whatever you decide to do, the key to beating future tripping is to keep yourself in the here and now, says Beresford. "When Sunday dread strikes, gently guide yourself back to be in the moment," she explains. "Focus on where you are - sitting or standing - feel your feet on the ground, and take three deep breaths, letting them out as slowly as you can. This is all about being mindful. "Whether you're chopping carrots for the Sunday lunch or washing up after supper, do things that keep you focussed on the here and now in your body - really feel the texture of the carrots, or of the suds-y water on your hands."
And finally, it can be useful to remember that sometimes, the idea of Monday is actually worse than the day itself. To switch up your thinking, give yourself something to look forward to by starting the week with a treat - a nice breakfast or your favourite coffee. Those small acts of self-care can make a big difference.
