How To Prepare For An Amazing Week

 

amazing week

You get off of work on a Friday night, enjoy a nice weekend, then BAM, the weekend runs away from you. You begin to dread the thought of the incoming week, and then the cycle continues. So how do you actually break that chain and actually have an amazing week? Here are three main tips that I found most effective — The three R’s: Roster, Reflect, and Relax.

1.)Roster

One of the most effective ways that I found really helpful is to plan your week on a Sunday night. By simply jotting down the date of the week with a goal for that week will truly help. With that in mind, use each day as a game plan to execute that goal. It’s basically living by that phrase, “Take smaller bites to finish a big pizza.”

2.) Reflect

It is so important to reflect on your days. The two most important questions to ask  yourself when moving through your days are:  “What am I proud of today?” and “What can I improve on?” It is  scientifically proven that self assessment can enhance performance.

3.) Relax

The last tip is to relax. There are about 10^11 neurons (100 billion) firing every second. Thus, it is so important to relax before a wonderful week ahead of you. Some ways that you can do so is either meditating or by reading a book. Once you are done, get some good night sleep and you are ready to take on the week.
