A productive week is all we need in life. We all have different plans on how to use and spend our Sundays. Though there is no right or wrong way to it the following points will ensure that you have a productive week.
1.Avoid sleeping in– Key to a productive week
Most of us like to wake up late and start late as Sunday is the only day we get to sleep. However waking up late one day could make you feel tired and lazy for the rest of the day . Waking up late also means we are left with very few hours in hand to utilize productively. This in no way means we should wake up at the same time as the other working days. Rather, it means you should avoid sleeping in till midday.
2. Have a goal for the week
It is very important to set realistic goals and agendas for the week. Always remember successful people are those that have a clear idea about their goals. Time is precious and each day should get you closer to your goals.
3. Plan out the week ahead
Planning out the whole week in advance will make you more confident and positive about the upcoming week. It will not only save your time during the week but simple things like what to cook, fixing and organizing your appointments for the week, Budgeting your week, scheduling your meetings, checking out deadlines and prioritizing your to do list will avoid a lot of confusion and chaos during the week. But you should also be ready to accommodate last minute plans that might come your way.
4. Finish your pending work for a productive week
It is always better to finish as much as you can on weekends rather than pushing it to the upcoming week. If there is something that you have bee procrastinating or putting off for a long time try to get it done before it gets too difficult to manage. Paying your bills, sorting your finance, working on pending emails or replying to pending messages and so on.

Family is where we are understood, accepted and loved as we are.

Share and discuss your activities and plans with them, be open to their suggestions and opinions as the support they lend can help us through all uncertainties of life.
