Need a good kick-start for the week? Honestly, I think A LOT of us need it. There’s a very simple way to perfectly start your productive week without even breaking a sweat. All you have to do is follow these tips:
Clean Your Desk
If you work from home, clean your desk off on Sunday so you start the week with a clean desk. Put anything you’ll need for Monday’s projects.
Schedule Social Media For the Week
I like to do almost all of my social media posts for Facebook and Twitter on Sunday so I don’t have to think about it during the week. It only takes 15-20 minutes on Sunday, and it saves me 5-10 minutes per day for the rest of the week.
Clean the House
There’s nothing worse than starting the work-week with a messy house! Monday evenings after work are pretty much the last time I want to come home and wash dishes, do laundry, etc.
Meal Plan and Meal Prep
Sundays are typically the day I do any grocery shopping. Before I do that, I write a meal plan. I write down what we’ll have for breakfast and dinner each day. We almost always have leftovers for lunch, but I pick up fixings for sandwiches or wraps just in case.
Clean Out Your Email Inbox
If you work a typical 9-5 job, chances are most of the emails you receive Friday night through Sunday are personal and junk mail as opposed to work email. Clean those out on Sunday night so you can sit down Monday to only emails you’ve received that morning. It will help jump into work more quickly when you don’t have to sludge through junk mail.
Write a To-Do List For the Week
When it comes to having a more productive week, this is my most effective way to do it. Having these tasks laid out before the week starts will allow you to jump right into them Monday morning. You can find this weekly planner in the Etsy shop that easy lets you plan our your tasks for the entire week. If you prefer a daily planner, this one is my favorite!
