5 To-Dos To Get You Through Every Week

 

5 To-Dos To Get You Through Every Week- sincerelykenz

HuUuUuUmp day… already!? Every time I remember that it’s Wednesday I immediately have the image of that crazy camel trotting through my mind. Am I the only one who gets this? I don’t think I can be the only one.

 

Aside from Friday and Saturday, hump day is one of my favorites. I don’t mind most days of the week, but a Wednesday is a pretty good day in my book.

 

Like most people, I usually make a hefty to-do list at the beginning of the week. If I am feeling productive and actually crossing things off my to do list every day (like I totally try to do every week), I make another list for myself on Wednesday.

 

Wednesday is the turning point from the beginning of the week up and go to the end of the week relaxation and winding down (usually, for me at least). Here are a few things I try to get done every Wednesday:

 

Finish Off The Week Strong:

You probably started the week feeling ambitious and ready to take on all of your goals. Make sure to end the week with a bang, and continue to work towards your goals, whether they are long term or short term. If I have a bigger goal that I want to achieve by the end of the week I find that it helps me to stay motivated if I take a glance at the goal every day. I usually write down my major goals for the week in my planner, and look at them every time I write something down in there.

 

Think About The Upcoming Week:

It’s never too early to start to plan the week ahead! Think about all of the goals you want to accomplish the following week and get crackin’ on figuring out what and how you can do to accomplish them.

 

Take Some Time For Yourself:

If you know me, you probably know how strongly I feel about alone time. I believe that alone time is so so SO important when it comes to having a strong, stable, mental state of mind. If you can free up some time, get your mind ready for the upcoming week and declutter a bit. Grab a lil’ midweek pick me up like your favorite coffee or donut(s, box of 12 donuts), and treat yo’self because hey, you deserve it.

Plan Out Something You Can Look Forward To:

Wednesdays are weird. It’s like the beginning of the week is a blurred memory and the following week is so far away. Plan something fun and exciting for the upcoming weekend. This will give you something to look forward to and will stand as a reason to keep pushin’ through the work week.

 

Celebrate Your Accomplishments:

Celebrate what you have already accomplished throughout the short beginning of the week! It is important to celebrate the little things and know how much you are capable of accomplishing. The middle of the week is the perfect time to get your life organized, and work on completing your weeks goals. Don’t forget to reflect on your successes too!

  • I think one of the most important things is to take time for yourself. I feel like if I don’t do things that lift me up (read, write, workout, eat some chocolate, quiet walks) I am cranky & absolutely no fun to be around!

    I always start the week off strong and then by Wednesday I need a break. So I usually take the night off!

  • celebrating accomplishments always helps me! Its cool to see the progress!

  • I’ve been taking on more and more freelance work as I search for a job so I’ve really had to learn to prioritize and I’m basically always thinking ahead!
