We all want our work (or school) week to be productive and as stress-free as possible. While we can’t eliminate stress, we can set ourselves up for a successful week. Spending a bit of time preparing for the week ahead is an excellent habit to get into.
Some of you might say the weekends are for fun and relaxation, not planning, but hear me out. If you spend part of your Sunday getting ready for the busier days ahead, there’s a nice sense of calm that comes over you. Knowing you’re ready to head into Monday means you can enjoy your Sunday evening without worrying about everything that hasn’t been done–because you’re prepared for a successful week ahead.
How to have a successful week —

- Reflect on the previous week.
