A weekly reset is simply a routine you do once a week that helps you get ready for the week. It is most often done on Sunday before your work week starts, but if you work on different days, it would be done the day before your week begins.
Catch Up on Tasks You Fell Behind on
Before you do anything else, take some time finishing anything you didn’t get done, that you are able to do right now. That way, you aren’t getting even more behind when the new week begins. Try to do this on Saturday if you can, so that Sunday is freed up for the rest of your reset routine.
Get Your Home and Workspace Clean and Organized
The weekly reset is also a good time to do some cleaning and organizing, particularly with things that will help you when your work week starts. Waking up to a decluttered home, laundry not put away, and a messy kitchen is going to take away from your productivity as your week begins.
Go through your house to tidy up, do any cleaning and laundry that needs to be done, and take a little time getting areas organized that you feel would increase your wellness.
Meal Prep and Planning
Don’t stress about meals this week! Instead, plan ahead and get as many things prepped as you can. Plan your meals by figuring out what you want to cook and eat for each meal of the day throughout the week. It helps to start by looking at ingredients you already have, then going from there.
Get your groceries, then see what can be prepped ahead of time. This might mean rinsing and cutting fruits and vegetables or making hardboiled eggs. Perhaps you may marinate chicken or meat or put rice in the rice cooker. Some foods can be made ahead of time, while others just need to have their ingredients prepped.
Laundry and Preparing for the Week
Sunday is also the perfect day for laundry and other tasks that help you get prepared. Work on your laundry while you are getting your meals prepped and house cleaned and organized. Just make sure you finish your laundry and put everything away. To save even more time in the mornings, get your outfits ready to go. Put them toward the front of your closet so you can just grab them quickly.
Working in Your Planner
Finally, take a look at your schedule. Then write tasks and to-do lists in your planner, and make sure you are ready for any appointments coming up. This helps you plan your schedule. Do you need to complete any paperwork, adjust your schedule, or make room for certain tasks this week?
Give this a try this upcoming Sunday and see if it works for you. Let me know in the comments !
