Are you a fan of routines? The truth is, a lot of people may think that routines can take the pizzazz out of life. We naturally may tend to avoid routines to feel a little more sprightly and alive, because let’s face it: sometimes routines can give you tunnel vision, dull your senses, and make your life seem a little ho hum. However on the flip side, routines actually have a lot of positive points. They can help you focus on your goals, keep your appointments straight, and maintain control over your life. They can also help you to relax, tackle complex issues, and increase your self confidence…and of course it’s always fun to break your routine once in awhile.
The good news is that little to no effort is required to establish a routine in your life. This week, why not try and add a simple routine to your day? This could be as simple as waking up a bit early to make yourself some coffee and breakfast, watch the news, take your dog for a walk…you know, give yourself some time to start the day without rushing out the door like a madman on fire. Why not give it a try?
