{Strategy} | Kalyn Nicholson’s GYST Day

Kalyn started something called a GYST (“Get Your Sh*t Together”) Day. She uses Sundays to get everything back around and reset for the following week. She sets up Sundays as a long block of time that she can take care of all of the miscellaneous tasks that fell by the wayside during the week. Some examples:

  • washing the car
  • home maintenance
  • mowing the lawn
  • cleaning the oven
  • cleaning the bathroom & kitchen
  • throwing away expired food in the fridge
  • laundry
  • catching up on emails
  • deep condition hair
  • retouch nails or eyelashes
  • meal prep for the week
  • grocery shopping
  • paying bills
  • planning for next moves with finances
  • taking out trash
  • eliminating things you no longer need and designating where they should go (e.g., ThredUp, thrift shop, best friend)

Kalyn strategically makes time for these things on Sundays to give her mind and body the “permission” to be less structured but more productive one day a week. She sets these tasks in a list to do before attacking each one throughout the GYST Day. This allows her to have more freedom and to relax more throughout the week knowing that the miscellaneous things that typically clog up the free space in your mind have already been taken care of – that is, they’ve been planned in advance to be taken care of on a day when you don’t have to focus on your work.
