In the past, on Sundays I would just go with the flow, I never really did anything productive. Now that I am married and work from home, I realized that I need to take advantage of Sunday’s to prepare for the week and get more organized. I wanted to share with you today how I now use Sunday’s more wisely and how it has benefited my entire week!
So let’s start with the 5 things to do on Sunday for a better week 🙂
1. CLEAN-UP & ORGANIZE
I love waking up Monday morning to a clean and organized home. It feels like a fresh start to the week, and it helps me get motivated to start getting work done. Take some time to deep clean your home and organize, you don’t have to organize your entire home, but I personally like organizing the fridge, our pantry, and anything that we use most often during the week. Since it’s Sunday, you can ask your family to help you out too 🙂
2. DO LAUNDRY
I don’t always get a chance to wash everything on Sunday because there might be a family gathering or something else important that we needed to get done. But most of my Sunday’s I wash everything… our towels, blankets, clothes, etc.
It’s nice to start the week knowing all your clothes are clean and knowing that you don’t have to wash during the week anymore 🙂
Since it’s just my husband and I; I only wash once or twice a week but I know some of you mommas out there do laundry almost every day and I give major props to you!! 😉
3. PLAN OUT YOUR WEEK
Sunday is a perfect day to plan out your week. I simply write in my planner all the important things that I need to get done during the week, I write down appointments, etc.
Write down my goals for the week.
Write down meals for the week.
I check the weather for the week.
I usually like getting the above tasks done early so that I could have the rest of the day to unwind and relax for the week ahead. I usually like taking a nice walk in nature with my husband, spend time with family, or bake something and watch a movie 🙂 You can do whatever makes you feel happy and relaxed.
I have a post on how to de-stress if you would like more ideas. You can read it here.
5. SLEEP EARLY
Lastly, is to sleep early… Most likely you have to wake up early on Monday to start working, or take your kids to school, etc. So make sure to sleep early so you could be well rested and ready to conquer the week 🙂
It’s okay if you can’t get all these 5 tips done every Sunday but I just wanted to share this with you because once I started doing this I saw my week would flow a lot better and I felt much more organized!
