Weekly Reset Routine

I love being organized, staying on top of things, and making the most of my time throughout the week. But sometimes it gets hard to keep up with. I love the idea of having a weekly routine, carried out on a Saturday or Sunday, to get done all those little tasks I put off throughout the week, prepare for the week ahead, and show myself a little extra care.

I’ve seen this done a lot of different ways but for me it seems to make the most sense to break it into categories. My priorities are to clean, plan/reflect, and physically take care of myself. I also like throwing in a little miscellaneous category in there for all those tasks that don’t fit so nicely in those previous categories. These could be extra things that I would love to get done but aren’t absolutely necessary.

It helps to have a quick, 5 minute “brain dump” before getting specific with the tasks that need to get done that week. Each week will be a little bit different and taking the time to write down what’s on your mind will help you make sure you don’t miss anything.

Before jumping in, I make it a point to light all my candles, turn on my salt lamp, and diffuse some essential oils. Might as well make it as enjoyable as possible, right? I grab a big glass of ice water and get started.

Here is what that usually looks like for me:

Clean

  • Empty the trash
  • Sweep the floors
  • Wipe all surfaces
  • Clean the bathroom
  • Wash, dry, and fold laundry

Plan

  • Write out my work schedule, workout schedule, and any other important events in my calendar for the week ahead
  • Do a financial check-in, go through receipts, update my budget
  • Meal prep my lunches for the week ahead

Self Care

  • Go to the gym, take a walk outside, stretch, foam roll
  • Take a shower
  • Wash my hair
  • Paint my nails

Miscellaneous

  • Grocery shopping
  • Clean my car
  • Write thank you cards
  • Drop off donations

Do you have your own version of a reset routine? What helps you feel prepared for the week ahead?
