Day Four, Reset Week! Ready, Set, September

Happy 1st September and good morning from sunny (wonderful) Copenhagen! We are on Day Four of our Reset Week! Are you seeing changes in your mood and in your home? Thank you for all the fantastic music and app/podcast suggestions yesterday! All this week we are focusing on our Reset: making our homes clean and cozy, taking a few vital moments every single day for self-care. What do I have for you today? We are keeping it productive and fun! We will be “taking our temperature”, there is a Mission, an extra Boost Mission (which ties in with Flylady Thursday) plus I want to hear your greatest small pleasure! (Bonus points for things which are free, said the Canny Scot!) Are you ready, set, September? Let’s go! Rah, rah, rah!

Reset Week – Thursday – Ready, Set, September!

Here’s the packing list I mentioned in Monday’s video…


It would be great if you could bring the following items with you to our Virtual (Re)Treat. No worries if you don’t have them, absolutely not essential. And please don’t buy anything new, just use what you have available! I recommend choosing your outfit the evening before, so you are ready to jump right into our Virtual (Re)Treat. Okay, here we go…

  • Notebook or a few sheets of paper.
  • Pen or pencil.
  • A timer (egg timer, kitchen timer) but you could also use your phone.
  • A few basic cleaning supplies: a duster/rag, cleaning spray, mop. (You can see what I keep in my cleaning caddy in this very old video!)
  • A container to store your “pamper items”. (Remember, please don’t buy anything! Use an old basket, tote bag, box.) Don’t know what to put into your pamper basket? See below!


  • Light reading. A magazine, brochure, book, library book, Kindle book.
  • A colouring book, journal, sudoku/crossword/wordsearch book, etc. Colouring pens or pencils. Knitting, crochet, small craft materials. Bottle of kids’ soap bubbles.
  • Favourite DVD, music playlist, meditation or fitness app, Wordle, Octordle.
  • Any odd remnants or samples of hand lotion, foot cream, face mask, hair treatment, perfume samples, nail varnish, manicure/pedicure items.
  • Essential oils, mini diffuser.
  • Eye mask, fluffy socks, cozy blanket.
  • LED candle, string of fairy lights.
  • Water bottle, ready-mixed mocktail or cocktail, juice, smoothie, chai mix, herbal tea sachets, hot chocolate mix, gourmet coffee.
  • A few small snacks. Your old favourites or try something new! Gourmet popcorn, nuts, mΓΌsli/energy/chocolate bar, exotic fruit.

That’s it!

There is no need to print out anything for our Virtual (Re)Treat. But here – for inspiration – are a few of the various charts I use to keep me on track…
