There have been a couple of changes in my life that have fortunately given me more time on a Sunday evening/night and I decided to take full advantage to create a weekly Sunday reset routine to help me prepare for a peaceful week. I love the concept of getting my ducks in order the day before so that I know exactly what’s on my plate when I wake up.
My Sunday reset routine doesn’t exclusively start in the evening. I start in the late afternoon and I do little tasks throughout until I fall asleep. Here are the components of my Sunday reset.
I love getting in some strength training on a Sunday. I exercise in the late afternoon and it’s usually a 30-45 minute session that sets me up well for the week ahead.
Shower, grooming & exfoliation
One of the highlights of my Sunday evening is taking a longer shower, doing some grooming if needed and exfoliating my skin or doing a mask. I don’t exfoliate every week but when I do I typically use The Ordinary’s Peeling Solution or the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant.
I have a number of journals that I use to help me out in my life. For my weekly reset, I will typically fill in my bullet journal with my meetings for the week, the weekly meal plan and transfer unfinished tasks from the previous week. I will also write in my one line a day journal.
Limit phone time
On weekdays, I aim to not be on my phone from after I finish work until my daughter has gone to sleep. On Sundays this will be from the time I start preparing dinner but sometimes I fail.
Read and sleep
Reading being the last thing I do before falling asleep has been a fantastic habit that re-introduced into my life and it has helped me out, I fall asleep so quickly. I was worried that reading a Kindle book on my tablet was going to affect that seeing as it’s technically screen time, but nope, for me it has the same effect as reading an actual book.
