I am one of those people who loves to plan ahead. I love making lists, organizing my planner, scheduling myself weeks in advance. Since I always have a million and one things going on, not staying organized isn’t an option for me. One of the things that I started doing was making monthly goals for myself. Nothing crazy or too out there. I like to set myself monthly skills to not only keep myself organized, but to give myself something to work towards.
I am one of those people who absolutely loves Sundays. Back when I worked retail, I refused to work on Sundays just because I’ve always felt that the it was the best day to relax and decompress. I know a lot of people look at Sunday with the “ugh tomorrow is Monday” type of mentality but I promise you, ensuring a positive Sunday is a great way to end one week and start the next week on a positive note. This is why I’ve started with a bit of a Sunday ritual.
I’ve broken my Sunday ritual into two parts: enjoying my Sunday and mentally preparing myself for Monday. It’s no secret that I believe in being organized and staying organized (read all about my organization here) and doing it on Sunday is a great way to start your new week off already ahead of the game.
