Take to for reflection

Take to for reflection

Make sure you also do something you enjoy, like brunch with friends or spending time with your family. 

This gives you something to look forward to during the week and it also helps you to disconnect.

  • Write down your top 3 priorities to get done on Monday and plan your schedule around them.
  • Review your calendar for the upcoming week and tie key tasks or events to it so you know exactly what to expect.
