Where does your week start? Some folks say the week starts on a Monday, others a Sunday. For me, the week has a natural start on a Saturday. Unconventional, yes, but it works for us.
Monday is the start of the working week, the tightly reigned in mornings, and getting out of the house. On time. In the right clothes. And so it goes on throughout the rest of the week. Come the weekend I want to spend relaxed time with my family without pressure, or deadlines, or chores. Saturday and Sunday is where (when?) we can let our hair down (jk no-one has hair here) and relax, but that takes some prep.
Enter the Friday Reset.
I love the Friday Reset. It’s my way of putting the working week away and prepping the house and my mind for a bit of downtime. It also means I get to put a bit of thought into relaxation, which is sheer indulgence for me. On a Friday there are jobs that get done. I meal plan, and sometimes even meal prep. There’s fresh bed linen all round, and freshly laundered towels. Clean fridge, grocery shopping and fresh flowers. Often I make pancake batter and lay the table before I go to bed. All things that mean we wake up on Saturday with a clean home full of delicious (and indulgent) food. I leave the studio to collect Milo on Fridays and have a playdate with one of our mama buddies, which is a great transition for tuning into Milo and reconnecting, and really sets the tone for the weekend.
