These Sunday habits for busy moms will help you stay productive all week long!
It’s no secret that moms lead a busy life. Whether you have one child or four, stay at home or work outside of it, there is always a list of things you need to do. And those lists never seem to completely go away. You mark off four tasks, and suddenly two or three more come up.
In order to stay (somewhat) on top of your busy schedule, you need to stay productive. You can do this by establishing good habits on Sundays. A typical calendar may start a week on Sunday, but most feel that Monday is actually day 1 – Monday is the first day of a new work week and it’s when the kids go back to school after the weekend, etc.
Sunday Habits for Busy Moms to Have a Productive Week
There is a good bit of “planning” and “doing” that should happen on Sundays if you want your week to go well. Let’s look at what needs to be planned every Sunday.
- To-do list
- Meals for the week
- Family budget
Where can you keep all these plans? In The Busy Mom Binder of course!
The goals can be for yourself and for your family. Do you want to declutter the attic this week? Make a plan! Maybe little Johnny needs to sell 25 more candy bars for a fundraiser. Make a plan on how he will do it! Use the goals to help make your to-do list for the week.
The rest of the planning is self-explanatory, but deciding on these things on Sunday makes the entire week run smoother. No more washing clothes the night before your child needs to wear something specific to school the next day. No more “what are we having for dinner??” every night either!
With your planning finished, it’s time to do some things to prepare for a productive week. Here are some things you can do to lessen your weekly load.
- Grocery shopping and meal prep
- Clean and organize home
- Clear out your email inbox
- Wash and put away laundry
- Go for a walk
- Practice self care
- Go to bed early
Doing these tasks ahead of time removes a lot of the guesswork or late-minute busyness that may come during the week. Meal prep can save you 30 minutes or more of standing in the kitchen on a busy Tuesday night. Doing up the laundry ensures everyone has fresh clothing to wear and that the planned outfits are ready to go.
To help you remember the important Sunday habits for busy moms, I’m offering a free printable list for my readers. This printable makes it easy for you to get all the Sunday tasks done so your week can be super productive. Print the list and keep it in your Busy Mom Binder or on the fridge – somewhere you will reference it each weekend.
I’ve also included a printable motivational quote from Mark Twain that says, “The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” These Sunday habits allow you to do just that. Not only are you getting started, but you are getting things done so that you can prepare for a smooth week!
