Routines are similar to habits in that they consist of tasks we do often. They’re tasks we do in the same order &/or at the same time each day.
Many people have morning routines as an important way to start their day, which can include prayer, exercise & breakfast. Also many have evening routines as a way to end their day & get prepared for bedtime, which can include prayer, reading & skin care.
Essentially it’s the predictability of routines that make them appealing as well as including tasks, which make a significant impact on how we begin & end our busy days.
Why You Need Routines.
Routines are a great way to start & end your day, as well as create an opportunity to commit to certain tasks.
For example, if you want to get healthy, you may include exercise in your morning routine & meal planning to part of your Sunday night routine. By doing so, you’re giving yourself a chance to pursue & commit to your goals & intentions.
How to Create Routines.
Creating a new routine is not that difficult though it does require commitment & self-discipline.
To create one:
- List the goal or outcome of the routine
- start the day energised
- end the day peacefully
- take care of my skin
- eat more health
- List what tasks will contribute to the goal/outcome
- List what order they can be completed
- Are their any days when you cannot do this routine?
- If so, create a different routine for that day
- Try the routine & see how it goes
- Modify it if you experience any hurdles
