3 Things You Can Do This Weekend to Have a Better Work Week

3 Quick Tips

to reduce stress & prepare for a better work week!

When life gets busy or stressful, it can be difficult to stay focused and productive during your work week. Here are three simple tips that you can accomplish on your weekend that can help you prepare for your work week ahead:

1. Set your weekly goals.
A little planning each weekend can go a long way in setting the foundation for a productive, stress-free week.

Don’t make this an overwhelming list. A list with too many daily tasks can actually have the opposite effect. Instead of pushing you forward in productivity, you may feel daunted by your workload.

Rather than creating a mountain of work for yourself, make note of six daily tasks to accomplish in order of priority. Come Monday, work your way through this list. At the end of your day, write down six more tasks for the following day. Continue this pattern each day.

2. Practice decluttering.
Clean up your workspace so that you can start your workweek free from unnecessary distractions. Organize your desk. Delete and archive old files and emails. Consolidate the items on your desktop. Be ready to start the day off strong when Monday rolls around.

This doesn’t have to stop at your workspace, either! Taking care of chores around the home – from laundry to throwing out trash and excess clutter – can help to organize both your physical space and emotional headspace.

Create A Routine

and plan ahead

3. Put together meals and clothes for the week ahead.
Take some time during your weekend to plan meals and outfits for your workweek. Having this organized ahead of schedule can help to save you time in the mornings before work and give you one less task to focus on as you start your day.

In addition, preparing your meals the weekend before can help you to make healthier, more economical choices throughout your week. Prepare nutritious meals and package them the weekend before to easily grab before heading to work for the day. This will save you money and unnecessary additional calories that you would spend by ordering lunch during the day.
