Sundays Spent in the Office

I've found myself intentionally working a lot of Sundays these days. 

It's not necessarily because I'm behind on work or have no life. I just really love working on a Sunday, and going into the office to do so. I work in a beautiful co-working space, and on a weekday the place is buzzing with entrepreneurs and start-ups hustling through the day. It’s an energy I love and am thriving off of. It’s also allowed me to make a lot of new connections, including a client or two.

But it can also be tricky. The good corners to curl-up and work in can be nabbed early on in the day, or the noise of meetings and collaborations can be distracting. Plus, as a hot desker, I don’t have my own office to relax and spread out in. Sometimes, my creativity takes up a lot of space. I also tend to talk to myself when working, a bad habit my coworkers at Futurpreneur learned very quickly.

So I’ve begun to come into the office on Sundays to get some work done. I usually come in a little later (this girl still has to sleep in on a Sunday!), with a cup of coffee in hand and my comfy clothes on. And I tend to work on the exciting, creative projects I have on my desk - because boo business finances on a Sunday!

I’m sure one day this will stop as the business begins to steady out and my life changes (because hello, I’d like a family one day). But it really works for me in the now. Plus, if I get in a little late on a weekday I feel less guilty. And it allows me to start my work week having completed some really cool or really inspiring tasks, like blogging or event planning.

Sure, some entrepreneurs rest and relax on their Sundays, but I’m digging my creative work day. How do you spend your Sundays?
