My Sunday Reset Routine

I’ve become a lover of routines.

They keep me grounded and help me stay productive.

And when I think of a Sunday reset routine, I think of simplicity.

Not doing too much, but just enough.

1. Check in.

If I didn’t get to do it on Friday or Saturday, I like to do a review on the previous week.

Kind of how teachers would have conduct sheets to track behavior in class, I like to keep a record of how I’m doing in life.

I ask myself questions like:

How did last week go?
What all did I get done on my to do list?
What tasks need to be carried over into the new week?
What could’ve gone better last week?
What am I looking forward to this week?
What do I want to accomplish this week?
How am I feeling?
What do I need to release in order to set this week up for success?

I don’t answer all of these questions every single time, but it just gives me space to sit down, be in the moment, reflect, and plan.

2. Set the new week up for success.

This is the day where I usually don’t have too much going on, so I try to keep it that way in all aspects.

I like to leave my major tasks (working, cleaning, or running errands) for other days of the week, but it doesn’t always happen.

For the most part though, I just do what I can to start the week of on a fresh start:

Tidy my room.
Gather things for running errands later.
Prepare lunch/breakfast/snacks.
Reach out to friends/family and check in.
Figure out an outfit or two I want to wear for the week.

I’ve found that doing small tasks like this, help set the rest of the week in motion.

I’m usually in a better mood too, because I don’t have to scramble trying to figure things out.

3. Just be.

Like I said, I really like to keep Sunday’s as low-key as possible.

So one thing I make sure I do is simply be.

Because I’m one to stick to planners all the time, I love having this day unstructered.

All I have to do is ask myself:

Do I feel like doing this today/right now?

If I do, great. If I don’t, I won’t.

What are some things that you like to do on Sundays?

How do you set your week up for success?
