As I was preparing for the week ahead, I realized that there is really something to be said for a good ritual. I am definitely a creature of habit, but I think if you are trying to change any habits, then routine is necessary!! For example, I LOVE giving my apartment a good scrub down before the week starts. It helps me start fresh, and there is nothing better than going to sleep in a fresh bed! On Saturday I went to town scrubbing floors, bathrooms, washing the sheets and towels, and even my makeup brushes. It made my Sunday so much easier (and much more enjoyable), since I could just relax before starting a new week.
A few other rituals that can start your week on the right foot….
- a little meal prepping
- a long bath/shower
- decompressing with a good book
- a sweaty workout
- a fresh mani/pedi
- deep cleaning your home!
- tidying your work space
- hanging up your clothes (SO guilty of letting this get out of hand during the week…)
- meal planning
If I had all the time in the world I’d do them all, but hey….just choosing one or two will help you start the week on a productive note!!
Enjoy your week!
