As the Sunday slump comes around again, it’s easy to let the feelings of anxiety come over you. A new week is the perfect start for positive change, but somehow you never find the answer to your calls. Whilst I don’t claim to have all the answers, I tend to have a weekly routine that set’s me up for a new week feeling prepared and positive. So I’m going to share my top five nuggets of advice with you, which I hope you’ll be able to draw some inspiration from!
Plan your week
I have a weekly planner I use, which I fill out and then place on my note board above my desk. Blog posts, general tasks, goals etc. Everything goes on this planner, which then helps me to guide my week. Because we all know the week never turns out as we expected, but putting pen to paper helps me guide myself even if shit hits the fan.
Organise your workouts
If you don’t have a personal trainer, that’s even more reason to plan your workouts and when you’re training ahead of time. You can quite simply do this by adding it to your diary, this way you’re more likely to stay focused and motivated. As for planning each workout, start by adding the aim of each session and then gain inspiration from there.
Set our your clothes and bag
This is such a simple token of advice, but one I live by if I have to be out the door early the next morning. Quite simply it stops me faffing, and gives me extra time to relax in bed or enjoy my breakfast. So go choose your outfit for tomorrow, and pack your bag. It’s like being back at school again!
I’m a basic eater, I can quite easily have the same food every day. In fact, I do have my overnight oats most mornings! But, if this isn’t the case and you like to eat something new each day. I suggest you plan your meals, and then buy around that. If you don’t mind a little preparation, try whipping your lunch up the night before. That way you’re not leaving yourself open to buying when hungry, the WORST time to go shopping (I speak from experience).
This one isn’t for everyone, but one I wanted to add because I feel it’s so valuable. What are your goals? Life, exercise, travel, work related it doesn’t matter, but try putting pen to paper and write down a few things you’d like to achieve next week. You might just find you have your most productive week ever.
