In this podcast series, I will be sharing how my habits, routines, and the different ways I think about time. This week I’ll be sharing my Sunday Routine.
I always learn more from listening to real-life stories of how other women are “getting it done.” Thanks for letting me share mine with you!
As I shared in the last podcast episode, Saturdays are fundays around here, which means Sunday afternoons are my domestic workday.
We started watching church from home sometime in late 2018/early 2019, and Greg’s mother has been coming to our house on Sundays for the past few years. My Sundays are now spent entirely at home. I decided for this season to add all housework tasks in and around my Sunday Basket® time on Sundays from 12-4.
I fit my housework into a four-hour time block.
Each weekend, I give my home and family a four-hour block of time. Some weeks I am running to check all the to-dos off my list, and other weeks I am looking into my Sunday Basket® to find projects to fill that time.
I have always found that getting my machines and people started first, before I dive into the work only I can do, has improved my productivity. I do the same thing on Sundays during this work time.
- I go through my emails and make decisions.
- I review my meeting agendas for the week.
- I get myself organized. I clear out papers, plan my outfits, and update my calendar so that I have time to get my most important work done.
In my 20s, 30s, and 40s, four hours would not have been enough time for all of this. This podcast series is not for you to compare your schedule with mine, but to open your thoughts and explore the possibilities of what your everyday life could look like.
How much time do you need to spend on housework each weekend? Which day or days will you do so, and for how long?
