A Fresh Start

A Fresh Start

The idea of a “fresh start”—wiping your slate clean, tidying up your workspace, and resetting your mind—has been discussed on this blog before. We’ve talked about the concept’s numerous benefits, and we’ve also talked about the ways in which it might be actually overrated. After all, your desk and inbox are probably clean enough to get some good work done at any given time.

And if it’s the third time you’ve cleaned it today, instead of writing your essay, that’s procrastination.

The Day Is A Gift

The Day Is A Gift

Look at it as a gift you’re giving your future self—the “you” that will be inhabiting this space 16 to 24 hours from now. Think about how much lighter you feel, how much clearer your mind is, when your space is clean.

When clean dishes are available, in abundance, and right where they should be. When any shirt you could desire to wear on a random Tuesday is ready and waiting in your closet. Give your future self that gift.

Get Food out Of the Way

Get Food out Of the Way

One of the sneakiest leeches of your time and focus during a busy work week is food. There are twenty-one meals that need to be accounted for. If you’re trying to be relatively healthy, those meals will require some cooking or preparation. Sunday can be used as a grocery shopping routine, like most people do.

Make dinner for yourself on Sunday, and make more than one portion. Put the rest in the fridge, and reheat it later in the week if you want. That’s it. If the ease of that resonates you, do it again next week, but double.

Moonshot Your Week’s Plans

Moonshot Your Week’s Plans

From a practical standpoint, the most helpful thing you can do for your work on this day is make as detailed a plan as possible. Schedule things to certain days, and certain hours of certain days. If you have a day job or other obligations you need to work around, be judicious and precious with those few hours you have. And work your hardest throughout the week trying to execute on the plans that “Sunday you” made for you.

But maybe also try making an incredibly ambitious, aspirational list. Write down anything that you can think of that you would want to accomplish, in a perfect world.

Find and Preserve Your Calm

Find and Preserve Your Calm

Sometimes, what you need on the weekend can be to stay in bed. Or it can be ordering takeout from the unhealthiest, best restaurant you can think of. If you’re okay with it, it might even look like making a mess of your space for a creative or DIY project.

 The point is that Sunday is a blank canvas that shouldn’t be disregarded or disrespected, or underestimated for its power to shape your week.

Work to reset your soul. Find a place of equilibrium that you can refresh yourself in, before you spring back out, ready to take on the world. Try meditating, or maybe yoga. Find your calm.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

samz905

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
