It’s Sunday as it time to focus on a new week filled with challenges and opportunities. However before we start to tackle the new week. Here’s are 3 Quick to tips on how to get your Mind Ready For A New Week

Tip 1: Prayer/Meditation

On Sunday, I used at least part of my day to focus on mind and spirit. I either pray or meditate to help get myself focus for the week ahead. A prayer that I usually say is the Lord prayer, which is Our Father Who Are Heaven, Give This Day Our Day Bread….Then I going to into my prayer. In addition, I also meditate too. I either play meditation music to help with getting my mind, body, and spirit into a state of relaxation or may go for walk to meditate as I project positive thoughts and energy into the universe.

Tip 2: Clear My Mind

I have The Optimist Creed that was given to me as a child. I recently found it and read everyday to help my mind and spirit to think positively throughout my day and week.

The Optimist Creed

Promise Yourself

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet. To make all your friends feel that there is something in them. To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. To think only of the best, to work only for the best and expect only the best. To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own. To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile. To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

The Optimist Creed is a conditioning mechanism that takes awhile for the mind to get use of thinking and feeling about this way about yourself and life. You can read this creed as many times your heart desire, the more you repeat it, the more you will start to think and feel good about yourself. In addition, I believe this creed works very well when you either live or work in a very toxic and negative environment.

Tip 3: Your Goals

List about 3 to 7 short goals that you would like to accomplish for the week. It could be applying for a job, going on an audition, holding a family meeting, date night with your spouse or significant other, etc. Whatever it is write it do, then write the objectives you want to accomplish See Example below:

My New Week List 9/16-9/21

Monday – Take about two to three hours during the day to rehearsal lines for Tuesday audition in New York City.

Tuesday – Audition expect to be there from 10am to 3pm. Arrive to location by 8am so I can be one of the first 50 people there in line.


Meeting with your children’s teachers after the school.

Meeting with our children held in the living room at 8pm- Goal to discuss house rules, chores, and overnight guest.

Thursday Night – Date with spouse to discuss relationship, family meeting, other personal and/family issues.

Saturday Meet play date with children’s new friends and their parents at 11am at festival.

I know that you can plan your week accordingly, because sometimes things happen unexpectedly and we have no control over that. However you can think positively and say that I had a plan in place and you may haven’t gotten anything accomplish which is alright because you can take your list to apply it to the following week. The world is not going to end if you don’t accomplish anything on your list. It is okay the sun will come out tomorrow.
