Often when we think about “routines” what comes to mind? While you are thinking of your answer, let’s delve into ways having healthy routines might be of help to you in your life.
Routines can help in a number of ways:
Some simple ways to establish routines include:
Routines don’t need to feel like a chore, task, or a boring to do list. If we are able to list in our routines we want to keep what it is we value, what is most important to us, and remember to tend to these important heart-felt dreams with equal importance to what we need to do we can fill routines with fun things we love as well.
Ways to maintain some fun in our routines:
Lastly, try to establish simple routines first that are completely do-able and try to do them at the same time everyday to establish the habit patterns. You can then build on this to add other routines. If you get stuck and fall off the routines you have set, try setting weekly routines if daily is too difficult to maintain and reflect which days you might want to build in a routine of free time, or a routine of self-reflection, and other days more task-oriented routines. Find times during the week where you have more energy or time, and use that time for what are your top priorities. Also, s routine of relaxation and down time for ourselves will often do wonders to get us back on track. Remember, routines can be changed and updated as we change and our priorities change! So give yourself some freedom to adjust as needed.
