Sometimes we all have to have a personal reset day. Life can build up around us, causing us stress and we just need to take a day to sort things out. Here is a basic guide for you to plan your own personal reset day.
Prepare for your Reset Day
Make sure that you get plenty of sleep beforehand in order to make sure that you are feeling refreshed and ready to be productive.
Ensure that you have gone shopping so that you have enough cleaning supplies. Not to mention things that make you feel happy such as candles, face masks and nice food.
Make a list of all the things that you want to do in your personal reset day. Write a rough to do list, and if you’re feeling especially optimistic, set yourself some timings so as to help your day progress smoothly.
Clean and Tidy
An important aspect of a personal reset day is making your environment more enjoyable to exist in and easier to navigate. The best way of doing this is to essentially reset your living environment.
Treat your personal reset day as a sort of ‘Spring Clean’. Deep clean your bathroom, wipe down your kitchen and change the sheets on your bed. All of these things will help you feel more comfortable in your home and enable you to focus on your daily tasks.
Slowly and steadily make your way through your home and clean and tidy the rooms.
Once you have cleaned your home, it’s time to organise yourself. Go through some of the paperwork that has been piling up, organise your bills and clear your desktop on your laptop.
Ensure that you make the way you organise easy to maintain so that you will be able to put off your next reset day.
By doing this you will set yourself up for the foreseeable future as you will know where everything is and will hopefully stay organised for a long time.
Take some time in your day to sit down and write some goals. These can be lifetime goals, or goals for the next week. Either way by doing this you help yourself stay motivated as you know what you are working toward.
If you can think of a mixture of short term and long term goals then this would be best. This way you will be able to relate the short term goals to your long term goals. Seeing your goals in context will help you want to complete them.
As a way of winding down the productivity of your day, sit down and write all of the things that are nagging away at you in your head. These can be to do lists, shopping lists, stresses or memories. Write down anything that is clogging up your brain.
By doing this you free up your mind and hopefully feel mentally refreshed. Making this one of the most important aspects of your personal reset day.
Treat Yourself after your reset day
At the end of your reset day it is important that you treat yourself. Light some candles, put on a face mask, cook your favourite food and kick back with some entertainment.
Maybe read your book, watch a Netflix film or listen to some music. And if you’re feeling especially cheeky, treat yourself to a glass of wine… or two.
Take Breaks During your reset day
While the aim of a personal reset day is to be productive and set yourself up for the foreseeable future, don’t forget to look after yourself during it. Take regular breaks and eat healthily in order to maintain your productivity throughout the day.
