Having a great week does not start on Monday. It starts Sunday night. It begins with what you set in your mind you are going to do, before you actually set out to do it.
Here are 5 ways to prepare yourself tonight for the new week ahead.
Write Down Your Plan For The Week
When there are a lot of things that need to be done, write them all down and check them off. If you don’t write them down, the chances they will slip through the cracks increase exponentially. List them by deadline, and fill 10-15 minute gaps in your day by completing things that will make your life easier during the week ahead.
Plan Your Outfits
This is not only a habit to keep on Sundays but every day of the week. Planning what you’re going to wear in the upcoming week or just in the next day will save you a lot of time and worries in the morning. Plus, can you say no to those extra minutes in bed?
When things get busy and stressful, diet and/or your wallet are often the first things that suffer. Prepping your meals for the week give you one less thing to think about in the morning and during the day, and will relax your mornings since you won’t need to rush to make breakfast and pack a lunch. Since preparing your own meals is also the most healthy way to eat, it gives you no excuse to stress eat fast food or grab something that will satiate a craving in the short term but weigh on your energy in the long term. Keep your energy high with foods like bananas, apples, oranges, yoghurt, turkey and avocado that are easy to pack and easy to eat.
Do What You Can Do Ahead Of Time
Anything you can do ahead of time gives you more freedom the next day, and is one less thing you have to think about.
The reason why this is so valuable is that you have more head space to think about what is coming up next, instead of trying to remember all the things you have to do.
Go To Bed Earlier Than Usual
It’s important to have a good night of sleep so you can have enough energy to tackle the week ahead.
