The Cure for Sunday Blues


On the seventh day, God rested. He didn’t let the creeping dread of the upcoming work or school week sour his much-deserved day of R&R. How can we relax like God?

Much of our anxiety derives from the Zeigarnik Effect, whereby we remember tasks we started and left incomplete, planting a seed of stress in the mind. As we concoct more to-dos throughout the day, the stress grows like kudzu, overtaking our sense of relaxation.

Organizing tasks into a to-do list buffers the Zeigarnik Effect. Try it this Sunday, and take back your blissful seventh day!
