Super cliche, but I don’t think there is such thing as a typical week. However, there is a loose structure that I try and follow
- Monday: I try and keep Monday as open as possible to allow time for emails, to-do lists for the rest of the week or any last-minute projects that landed over the weekend. Usually capped by a giant grocery store haul, if that hasn’t happened on the weekend.
- Tuesday/Wednesday: I try and keep open for recipe development/photography and other freelance projects. I’ve found that I work best doing several photoshoots back to back rather than stopping in between each one. Every other Tuesday, I do a cooking segment on a local TV morning show.
- Thursday/Friday: Writing, editing and client work. I try and schedule most of my clients for Thursday/Friday, if possible.
- Saturday/Sunday: If I’m not traveling, I use the weekend as catchup days for anything I didn’t get done during the week.
I try and make it out for a run at least a few times each week. That’s my “me time” and I cherish it as much for alone time as I do the endorphin high afterwards. I always start my morning with meditation, which is a non-negotiable no matter where I am. Meditation is my life-blood; if I’m not in my practice, I’m much more anxious, stressed and unfocused.
