What started as simple videos of cleaning and organizing at home has turned into one of TikTok’s most viral trends—the Sunday Reset. Racking up over 5 billion views, Sunday Resets have helped tons of people start their week on the right track. Whether it be to beat the Sunday scaries or finally run errands and tidy up your place, this inspirational trend is perfect for getting your home—and your life—back on track.

What is a Sunday Reset?

A Sunday Reset typically entails laundry, dishes, and other home cleaning tasks, but it doesn’t have to be restricted to all things cleaning-related. Whether you go to the grocery store or meal prep, the main idea is to prevent stress throughout the week by tackling all your chores throughout the day.

@chyantonio the funniest thing about my cleaning videos is that you can see how my pets just get in my way all the time 😂 #sundayreset #sundaycleaning #sundayroutine #resetroutine #cleantok #cleaningtiktok #speedclean #sundaycleaningday #cleanwithme ♬ girls just want to have fun – sped up sounds

If you’re contemplating tackling this trend, here’s what to consider beforehand.

Is a Sunday Reset right for you?

First things first: are you a routine lover or more of a go-with-the-flow type? The Sunday Reset works best when it feels like it fits naturally into your week, so picture your weekly schedule. Can you see yourself setting aside some time on Sundays, or does it clash with your downtime? It’s all about finding that sweet spot between getting things done and keeping it low-key. You want this routine to make you feel like you’re better prepared to tackle the week ahead, not an extra thing to stress about. Make sure it feels like a positive addition to your week.

A Sunday Reset Checklist

Now that you know what a Sunday Reset is, the next question is, what exactly should yours include? Yes, cleaning is the main proponent, but maybe you want to throw in a creative hour, plan a virtual catch-up with a friend, or simply indulge in your favorite book. The beauty of it is that it’s entirely yours to mold. The main goal is to feel balanced after the day is over.

That said, your duties may vary each week depending on your mood or time commitment. Use a checklist or to-do list to make sure you get everything done that you want to. Here are a few tasks, both big and small, to include to get you started:

  • Vacuum
  • Wash your bedding
  • Meal prep
  • Water your plants
  • Practice self-care
  • Plan your week
  • Do your laundry
  • Load the dishwasher

Once you’ve implemented a Sunday Reset into your routine, make note of what works for you and what doesn’t. The great thing about it is that it doesn’t have to look the same every week. No matter what you decide, it’s all about what makes you happy and brings peace to your week.
