There is just something magical about having your week organized before it even starts. I have spent the last few months trying to hone my weekly reset. Something needed to be put in place to help me keep up with my productivity throughout the week. So I created a Sunday reset routine checklist. A little list to help keep me on track that I think could help you if you are looking to up your weekly organization.
Sunday reset routine checklist
Creating this Sunday reset routine checklist I wanted it to help me get organized, but I also want it to hit on each area of personal growth as well. Having tasks that include the 5 areas of personal growth I feel helps aid in your personal growth journey. The 5 areas to include are mental, social, physical, emotional, and spiritual.
When creating your Sunday reset routine checklist think about what would benefit you and your schedule. I am going to be sharing mine and how it helps me.
On Sunday morning I most likely wake up before everyone else in my house. That means it’s REAL quiet. I try to do something that helps me in all 5 areas of personal growth. It is the same for the afternoon and evening as well. The tasks may be different, but they will all hit those 5 areas.
The day ALWAYS starts with a cup of coffee. I like drinking my coffee in peace.
Physical – But before coffee, while I am still laying in bed… I will stretch. Gotta wake up those muscles in the morning. Face it none of us are getting any younger.
After I get out of bed while the coffee is a-brewin’ I grab my yoga mat and turn on a Gentle Morning Yoga | Plus Size and Beginner Friendly video on YouTube. If you don’t follow Nourished Natasha… I highly recommend her.
Mental and Emotional – These 2 kinda go hand in hand in the morning. The first thing I do to help my mental state is to clear out my head. I will wake up and journal a bit about my dreams, things I am feeling, and things I am struggling with. To get it all out of my head. Don’t want a heavy heart with me for the whole day. I don’t journal for long maybe 5-10 minutes. Depending on how I am feeling that day.
Then I will grab my other notebook to write out my to-do list for the day. Sunday is typically a day I don’t work on the blog. So I write out all the things I want to do around the house or any errands we have to run.
Spiritual – I will read a chapter of the current book I am reading. Right now that is “You are a Badass” by Jen Sincero. I don’t push myself more than that but I can read more if I want to. I have to finish a chapter a day. It is a part of my Redonkulous Book Challenge.
After reading my one chapter… I sit with myself and focus on my breathing. I want to feel my mind become blank. My mind is empty. I have gotten everything out of my head and my heart between journaling, to-do list, and reading. My mind is mush.
Social – I don’t really leave my house unless we are running errands. So I will reach out to a friend on social media and check upon them. Just a quick little chat. If they are not up yet. They can message me back when they get up or when they have time. No rush.
As part of my Sunday reset routine checklist… I end my morning routine finally picking up my phone. That is one of the last things I do in the morning.
For the afternoon it is a little bit different. It is a little bit harder to hit all 5 areas of personal growth.
Physical – This is the important part of a Sunday reset routine checklist. I spend the rest of my morning and afternoon cleaning the house. I make a list of tasks I want to do in each room. If I am alone… I go with the flow of my house. Starting by the front door and work my way all the way through to the back of the house.
If Mike and the kiddo are here Mike gets the task of cleaning the front room because that is his game room and Mikayla cleans her room. But they both will help clean little things throughout the house.
I also consider this my workout for the day. Cleaning a house is a lot of up and down, bending over, standing up… You know how it goes.
Mental and Emotional – Again go hand in hand. Mentally as I get through cleaning the house I feel this weight lifted off of my shoulders. Emotionally I am crying inside because I want it to be over with. LOL JK
Spiritual – It is like an out-of-body experience when you are finally done cleaning and you sit down on the couch to marvel at the beautiful work you have just done in your home. **chef’s kiss**
Social – I will check my phone sporadically throughout my cleaning adventure to message friends, post on social media, or watch some TikTok to have some social interaction.
When we have the kiddo on the weekends I will put my errands off until Sunday because we have to take her home in the evening. No sense in leaving the house in the morning or afternoon if we don’t have to.
Mental – It is time to prepare a shopping list to hold us over for the week. It starts with going through the cabinets, fridge, and freezer to get rid of any expired food. Also to make a list of what we have on hand. It is called shelf cooking. Something I learned from the awesome Jordan Page.
Now that I have a list of what we have I try to think of meals for the week and stop at the store to buy the items we are missing.
Physical, Emotional, Spiritual, and Social- These 4 are all wrapped in one because now we have to PHYSICALLY walk around the store and interact socially with others. It’s an emotional rollercoaster. I am not a religious person but I pray to a higher being to give me the strength to get in and out as quickly as possible. I am kidding but also sometimes not. Our Walmart is so crowded and the lines are long. I am glad we leave it to the end of the day.
Sunday reset routine checklist
That is my Sunday reset routine checklist. Every Sunday I do the same routine to help me prepare for the coming week. Now throughout the week, I have to maintain the clean rooms. Do a quick vacuum, sweep, and mop in the middle.
It has been a lot of trial and error with my Sunday reset routine checklist. That is okay you try A LOT of different things and assess what your home needs and you come up with a routine checklist that suits your and your family’s needs in your house.
