As an entrepreneur, you may find it difficult to put your work aside for the weekend. Though, it's hard to believe, even the most demanding business ventures can wait until Monday. However, you can prepare yourself for the upcoming week by following these 7 steps.

Wake Up Early

Sleeping until noon on the weekend can be tempting, but it is not worth losing time over. Starting the day early prevents you from having to rush through all your tasks. With plenty of time to get things done, you can tackle one thing at a time, allowing you to be more relaxed.

Reflect and Affirm

As you’re making breakfast or sitting down for a cup of coffee, reflect on your current situation. Recognizing any changes you might need to make allows you to approach your goals effectively. After reflecting, you may apply any self-affirmations to help you along.

Pursue a Hobby

Is there something you’ve always wanted to attempt like painting, gardening, or car restoration? Hobbies allow you to create something without any pressing obligations. They are also great outlets for stress relief.


In our busy lives, it can be hard to find time to spend with family and friends, but it is important to maintain those relationships. Plan ahead of time for a family dinner or a movie with a close friend. It doesn’t have to be something extravagant. There is a reason these people are important to you. Let them make you happy.


Be sure to reserve a few hours of your weekend to veg-out on the couch watching Netflix or anything else that doesn’t require a lot of effort. Allowing yourself to simply do nothing benefits your will to work harder later.

Tidy Up

Wash the dishes, fold the laundry, and declutter. Knowing that your home is in order will allow you to focus on the tasks at hand during the work week. This is especially important if you have a home office. Clear away any loose papers on your desk and jump into your work free of distractions.

Plan Ahead

Fill your planner ahead of time to avoid any missteps. Prepare for any meetings or presentations you’re scheduled for instead of throwing something together the night before. This will increase the overall quality of your work.
