    25 Things That Will Help Chase Away The Sunday Scaries And Help You Start The Week Off Right

    Cheers🥂 to starting the week off right!

    1. A guide to dealing with daily dreads that will help you honestly tackle your anxieties. Instead of hokey mantras and self-help-isms, you'll be treated to saucy lil' comics and doodles that'll help shift your perspective (and maybe give you a giggle or two).

    2. A bag of hydrating bath salts if your idea of a perfect afternoon is sinking into a long, hot soak. It contains only natural ingredients (it's scented with rosemary and sweet orange) so you can go ahead and relax without worrying about any adverse reactions.

    3. An extra-large whiteboard calendar so you'll never lose track of a bill payment or appointment. Reviewers say it's big enough to write down tons of details and love that dry erase markers wipe off without any smudging or ghosting.

    4. Or a set of dry erase sticky notes that will help you stay on top of your ever-growing to-do list. Because they adhere to all shiny surfaces — like mirrors, windows, and appliances — you'll always be able to keep them in plain view (instead of lost in your bag or pockets).

    5. A relaxing face mask that'll soothe any stress-related breakouts and leave your skin looking healthy and happy. It's powered by cannabis seed extract, but don't fret — it's non-psychoactive, so you can reap the benefits sans the high.

    6. An avocado plushie that can be used hot or cold to soothe ouchies, boo-boos, and all kinds of aches and pains. It's filled with buckwheat and lavender, which means it'll not only smell great, but it also won't leak all over your stuff.

    7. A little book of affirmations that will help ease your Sunday night anxiety and combat negative thoughts. It contains 52 uplifting affirmations (one for every week!) and is small enough to fit on even the biggest bookworm's shelf.

    8. A set of cooling eye patches that'll help you end your weekend on a ~chill~ note. They're infused with seawater and de-puffing caffeine that'll make dark circles nearly disappear, so no one will know you stayed up too late watching Netflix.

    9. An essential oil rollerball if aches and pains aren't on the agenda. It's basically a PMS-fighting, fresh-smelling, migraine-busting, cramp-eliminating miracle that won't leave your skin (or clothes) greasy and sticky.

    10. A mocktail recipe book if you wanna make the most of your weekend without paying for it the next morning. Each concoction is designed to balance crisp, fresh flavours while still tasting (and looking) as swanky as the cocktails you know and love.

    11. This magical fabric spray that'll refresh smelly fabrics when you don't have the time (or just don't want) to do laundry. It's perfectly suited for all your athletic gear and will even help remove chlorine from bathing suits.

    12. A tube of Summer Fridays' iconic Jet Lag mask that'll help you put your best face forward this week. The updated formula is fragrance free and extra kind to sensitive skin — not to mention absolutely stuffed with skin-loving ingredients, like vitamin B5, hyaluronic acid, and niacinamide.

    13. A lavender-infused eye pillow that'll help you find your zen when anxiety makes an unwelcome appearance (rude). It's filled with flaxseed for gentle acupressure and can be used hot, cold, or room temp to soothe headaches and tired eyeballs.

    14. A large produce saver that'll extend the life of your finicky veggies and save you from wasting a weekend afternoon at the grocery store. It can fit a whole head of romaine lettuce and has a special tray that'll keep the bottom from getting gross and soggy.

    15. A bottle of all-purpose cleaner that won't leave your surfaces smelling of chemicals. It works almost instantly, too, so you can spend less time cleaning and more time relaxing.

    16. A set of reusable press-on nails that'll dress up your tips in time for your morning meeting. You won't have to wait for the polish to dry or risk smudging your artwork — just press on and go!

    17. These multilayered pants hangers that'll help you find the perfect pantaloons in seconds (and save you space, too!). The padded arms will keep them from sliding off and can be swung out when you're searching for your favourite pair.

    18. A patchwork bucket hat so you can skip wash day in style. The soft, breathable corduroy will help prevent overheating (and wearing a chapeau helps shield your hair from the sun's damaging rays, too).

    19. An undated planner that'll make it easier than ever to organize your life. It comes with stickers, colour-coded ribbons, and an illustrated user guide (if you don't know where to start).

    20. A wrinkle-releasing mist if you've *just* realized all your outfits are unforgivably crinkly. It'll work on everything from suit jackets to curtains and is totally biodegradable, too.

    21. A pulsating vibrator that'll send you and your bits rocketing into outer space. It's designed to mimic the suction of a mouth and is completely covered in velvety silicone, so it won't poke or prod while you're getting your rocks off.

    22. An overnight dry shampoo if you already know you'll be tight on snoozin' time. The activated charcoal and natural powders will absorb into your mane and leave it looking fresh as heck so you won't have to rush through a wash 'n' style in the morning.

    23. A pair of jewel-toned pillow shams that'll feel as good as your fave T-shirt so you'll actually look forward to bedtime. They're made of 100% cotton so they won't make your noodle sweat while you're catching those zzz's (and you'll actually get a more restful sleep).

    24. An all-natural pillow spray that'll help you ditch invasive thoughts and lull you into a restful sleep. It has notes of snooze-inducing lavender, plus frankincense and hops to help open up your breathing passages, too.

    25. And lastly, a Philips wake-up light that'll gently rouse you from your slumber come Monday morning. Instead of a blaring alarm sound, it actually simulates the colours of a sunrise, tapping into the body's natural circadian rhythm and waking you up more peacefully.
