Sundays are for resetting, in every way possible. Use these 101 Sunday motivation quotes to get your mind set up and refreshed for a great week ahead.
Do you have a love/hate relationship with Sundays?
I know I do.
On one hand, I love the cozy vibes, the relaxation, and the subtle undertones of getting excited for a fresh week.
On the other hand, the “Sunday Scaries” do sometimes creep up and leave me dreading the week and feeling like I want to curl into a ball, avoid reality, and give up on being a functioning human. (Please tell me I’m not alone.)
That said, no matter how I’m feeling about the upcoming week, I’m always seeking some sort of Sunday motivation or inspiration.
Having a good Sunday mindset is key for starting your week off on the right foot.
Use these Sunday motivation and inspiration quotes to get you in a good headspace for a fresh week!
