When it comes to manifesting, there’s times where we’re focused on manifesting big shit, like our dream house, the love of our life, or being a millionaire, but sometimes it’s beneficial to simply focus on manifesting the little things first, like more peace and order in our lives.
Taking the time every week to organize yourself and create a comfortable space will 100% get you into the best mindset to kill it and manifest whatever the fuck you want later.
The first thing I want you to do, is to take a look around. Check your space, your bills, your routine, your habits. This isn’t about shaming yourself, it’s about honestly assessing how you feel, with the state of your life, as it is, right now.
The reason it’s important to get a sense of how you feel is because we straight-up manifest what we feel. There’s no way around that rule. So if you look around and you feel uncomfortable, ashamed or unproductive, because of XYZ, you’re going to manifest more of the same.
That’s not to say a messy or disorganized person can’t manifest love or riches; that’s ridiculous and of course they can. But they’re most likely a happily messy person. Someone who can laugh at themselves and doesn’t feel the least bit bad about the lack of order in their lives.
See the difference?
So take stock. How does your life and your surroundings make you feel? Do your habits support the life you’re trying to create? Are you procrastinating writing that book because you badly need to do laundry, and your laptop’s buried somewhere under a heap of dirty clothes (you think).
The good news is, these are simple problems with quick and easy solutions, and you can start to see the results and feel better about yourself almost immediately by doing them.
My Sunday Reset Routine
I do my reset on Sundays, but since I was a waitress for 15 years and my Sunday was usually a Tuesday, or some other random day of the week, I called this a weekly reset, in case you have a wonky schedule like that.
So the point of my Sunday reset is to set me up for the week with as many annoying tasks out of the way as possible, so I can get into a chill mindset and flow through my week knowing my shit’s good to go.
This is what I do:
- De-clutter the house.
- Wash (and put away) all my dishes
- Wash (and fold!) my clothes
- Wash my sheets
- Food prep (which is basically just meatballs) if needed.
- Put together a few outfits (sometimes I miss having a uniform for work, made my life simpler in this regard)
When I took stock of my own life, I noticed that I’d always let my dishes pile up because I wouldn’t empty the dishwasher, or I’d have piles of dirty clothes all over, because my hamper would be occupied with the clean clothes from 2 weeks ago that I still hadn’t folded and put away. So focusing on these two things really made such a difference in my world.
Space Things Out
You can feel free to clean your whole house in one day if you’d like, but I personally don’t like to do that. I like to enjoy my days off and relax too, so I try to set aside other days of the week for certain chores, like I usually go grocery shopping late on Saturday night, that way I’m ready to go if I need to prep on Sunday, and assign a random weekday to clean the floors and bathroom. It’s just what works for me.
Progress not Perfection
It’s super important, not to just read this and think it’s a good idea (if you do), but to actually take the suggestions and apply them in your world. I’ve figured out that this is the key to getting shit done; you actually have to do it. Who knew? Anyway, trust me, if you dedicate just a couple of hours one day, you’ll be surprised how it affects your overall mood and week.
But what if say, you do your reset one week and you feel great, but then the next week comes around and you say fuck it?
I’m telling you right now, don’t make this a thing you “have” to do or “should” do. Make it something you “want” to do because it makes you feel better when you do it. And don’t beat yourself up if you skip it or aren’t consistent with it. It shouldn’t be adding to your bad feelings, it should be easing them away.
Instead just notice, “Wow I didn’t do my reset this week, and now I’m out of coffee cups. I think I’m happier when I drink my coffee out of a grown-up cup, instead of my kid’s Barbie sippy-cup. Maybe I’ll go ahead and get this shit done tonight, why not?”
No guilt or shame needed. Just do it whenever you feel like doing it again. Maybe you’re exhausted on your Sunday, and if so, fucking rest. Do that shit on Monday or Tuesday, who the fuck cares? Same difference.
I hope this helped, I love figuring out little ways to streamline and organize my life, and a lot of times it’s so much simpler than we think it can be!
And just think when you finally do manifest the guy or girl of your dreams and they walk into your fresh-as-fuck apartment, you’re gonna feel so cool 👻
