This sunday routine will set you up for an organised week

June 17 2017

There is nothing worse than waking up on Monday morning feeling overwhelmed and stressed. Set yourself up for a productive & organised week by getting ready & prepared on a Sunday. 

Here are the 5 small things that I recommend you do on a Sunday!

AOL_Mon Purse_June 2017_4-2.jpg

1. Check your diary & prepare for the week (10-15 Minutes)

Preparation is key to getting your mind in the right head space to tackle the week ahead. Set aside 10 minutes to sit down with your diary & look over your schedule for the week. 

  • What nights will you not be home for dinner?
  • What days do you need to pack your gym gear?
  • Do you have any pre-work coffees & need to set an earlier alarm on that day?
  • Are there any important meetings booked that you need to plan a #girlboss outfit for?

Once you're feeling confident with your schedule for the week - take the time to write a big to-do list for your Monday (follow my guide on to-do list writing here) and set any alarms or reminders you need to on your phone. 

2. Plan your meals for the week (10-15 Minutes)

Monday to Friday is usually a fast-paced hectic time for most. Make your life a little bit easier by planning your meals for the week. 

If you don't have time on your side, order your groceries online & make dinner options that can also be used as lunches! Eg. Soups are a delicious, easy & low cost option for winter.

I have taken this task one step further by ordering HelloFresh (for over a year now - not sponsored!) which is delivered to my apartment every Sunday with x5 amazing meals. I simply pick a recipe card every night & follow the thorough steps! I'm obsessed

3. De-Clutter (10-15 Minutes)

It's very common & easy to accumulate an assortment of clutter & mess during the working week & weekend. Spend 10 minutes on a Sunday evening doing a quick clean up so your apartment, wardrobe, and handbag feels organised & de-cluttered. Clean space = a clear mind. 

TIPS:

  • Hang up any loose clothing & organise your wardrobe
  • Re-organise your bathroom cabinet faves in order of what you use first to last in the morning
  • Empty your handbag & get rid of any unneeded things e.g loose paper, makeup, extra sunglasses. And add in anything that's missing eg. house keys or an umbrella.
  • Put away your laundry
  • Clean up any mess in your home

4. Prep Your Outfits (10 Minutes)

It may sound silly but planning your outfits on a Sunday will save you a lot of stress & time. I always check the weather for the week ahead and roughly plan my looks around the temperature, meetings, events etc so that I feel comfortable and confident. It makes your morning routine a lot faster!

It's also a good idea to do your laundry during the weekend ready for the week ahead as well.  

5. Relax (30 Minutes)

It's important to have some R&R time on a Sunday before you head into the working week again. Do something that makes you feel happy & calm. And... also make sure you go to bed early on a Sunday so you feel refreshed and ready to go when that Monday morning alarm goes off. 

    I hope this helps!! Have a good week x
