I am by no means a morning person. I probably snooze my alarm 3-4 times every morning, until I know I absolutely have to wake up. I wish I could be productive in the morning like other people, but that's just not me. So to make up for this fact, I plan for the week ahead on Sundays. Of course, I'm super attached to my planner (see how I organize it here), but I also use lots of lists to organize other things I need to do during the week. Here's how I plan for the week ahead:
1. I write and schedule all of my blog posts for the week on Sunday.
I try to write schedule all of my blog posts for the week on Sunday, because I know I'll run out of time to write them during the week if I don't (like last week). This leaves me time to comment and read y'alls blogs during the week!
Like I said, I'm not a morning person, so instead of scrambling to figure out what I'm wearing to my internship on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, I'll write a little post-it note and refer to that in the morning. This makes it easy to get out as quickly as possible.
I use my Lilly planner religiously, but it also helps to have a smaller list of assignments due each day. I keep my list on my desk and highlight assignments after I finish them.
Every Sunday, I straighten up my room and do laundry, so I don't get stressed by messes during the week. If my room is messy, I have a hard time studying (I have the urge to clean), so I clean on Sundays and then make my bed every morning before class. I'm not a neak freak, but I find that clutter in my tiny room stresses me out. This makes it easier to focus on other things during the week.
How do you prepare for the week ahead? Have a terrific Thursday!
