How to plan for the week ahead

Does your heart skip a beat when you get to the end of the week and you have absolutely no idea where the time went? We know the feeling! To prevent further heartbeat skipping, doing a bit of planning on a Sunday night can make a huge difference. Not only will you become more productive during the week, you won’t have that ‘I must have forgotten something’ feeling.

We’ll be sharing a few tips on how to go about planning your week by setting aside an hour on a Sunday evening and the best part is, you don’t need any fancy gadgets – pen and paper will work just fine!

  1. Create a priority list

This seems like a no-brainer but it’s important that you get your non-negotiables out of the way. This is how you will not forget anything critical and you’ll be able to see how much time you have left for other tasks or responsibilities. Your priority list does not have to mean only work or studies, this could mean intentionally adding a break or meal to your calendar – whatever helps you stay sane and to keep your mental health at its highest.

  1. Your most important tasks should be at the top

You will need to figure out what are your three most important tasks for the week and you will need to place them right at the top of your list. This coincides with creating a priority list; however, these tasks are purely work and study-related. These three tasks should allow you to breathe a sigh of relief at the end of the week – that’s how you know they’re important.

  1. Schedule a nap time

Did you know, when you have a rest, you actually become more productive? If the pandemic has taught us anything it’s that life is fragile and we should always rest and stop living life in a rush, because if we don’t, our bodies will make us rest! Start developing a good bedtime routine and you’ll notice the difference it has on your week.

  1. Make sure it’s all achievable

Make sure your plans are achievable. Make sure the time you schedule for each task is not limiting or restricting you in any way, and make sure you don’t overwhelm yourself when adding tasks and responsibilities to your to-do list. Once you’ve created your list, have a look from the top to the bottom and ask yourself whether you are able to manage everything you have noted down for the week ahead.

Here’s to being more prepared for the weeks ahead!
