I think everybody needs a routine. It keeps life organized and gives structure. I have certain days that I run errands, certain days I work out and days that I work from home.
It makes it easy for me to remember what needs to be done on a given day and helps to streamline. The problem with routines is that we seem to get stuck in them and that’s not good. Today is Friday, Friday is normally a workout day. I wasn’t feeling well when I woke up and so I gave myself permission to break my routine. I don’t do it a lot. In fact you can be certain I won’t do it again next Friday. My point is, our routines keep us on track, but we’re not robots so occasionally we need to change things up a bit.
It doesn’t have to be anything crazy. You don’t have to take a vacation in the middle the week,(although if you can do that you’re awesome, and I’m jealous). It could be something as simple as changing where you go out to eat for lunch, I’ve noticed I tend to go out to the same places all the time. A lot of the time I get the same food at those places. I don’t even think about it, I just order it, and then I realize “Hey I got this last time” I understand someone who dislikes change, but something as small as ordering a different meal might shake up your life enough to keep things interesting.
I don’t understand why people put where they’re going for lunch on Facebook. I mean it gives you directions to their exact location. One day, to spice up my life a little bit, I may just show up where you are and let you buy me lunch. I think I did video about that.
Isn’t it cool how I can just drop a video in like that? I didn’t even plan that.
So let’s recap, routines are good. They give structure and direction. It’s best however, to break them up a little bit, on occasion, to keep from getting bored. If your life is boring, you might be doing it wrong.
