When You Know It’s Time To Change Up Your Daily Routine
You know, one of the ways I’ve been able to juggle and manage so much with my mother’s illness is due to the daily routine I created several years ago. I’ve always been a person who lived by a routine, and when my mom got sick, I saw the value in that routine even more.
Having a set of tasks to stick to each day, week and month gives your life a semblance of structure so you don’t wake up each morning wondering what you’re going to do. In every sense of the word, it simplifies your life and provides you with much-needed stability.
You know, the objective of a daily routine isn’t to keep things constant in your life but rather the purpose of a routine is all about progress to help you get the best out of your everyday lives. When you have a reliable set of tasks you do each day; you don’t have to waste time planning. You already know what’s on the agenda. Second, by providing yourself with structure, you keep your lower level needs in check and can focus on satisfying those higher level needs.
The sad truth is most people have stagnant and disempowering routines. Their days and schedules are filled with empty tasks that keep them from living the life they were intended to live. Sure it keeps them busy, but it also keeps them unfulfilled.
How do you know when it’s time to change your daily routine? Here are some signs:
- You’re constantly wondering what you should do with your time
- You often feel uninspired, like you’re in a rut
- You seem busy, but you don’t know what you’ve accomplished at the end of the week
- You feel a lack of satisfaction or fulfillment with your life
- You feel you need to monitor your goals consciously to see how they’re doing
- Your daily activities are more of an obligation than an inspiration
- Your day-to-day activities are not what you’d want to do
- You feel tired easily even though you’ve not done much
Well, first you have to be willing and ready to give up your current routine and replace it with one that will work for you. Once you create a new routine, schedule it out into your calendar and do a trial run. See how the routine works out and notice if your energy levels are higher or lower. If you’ve selected the right mix of activities, you should feel more energized despite being busier.
My hope for you is no matter how you chose to go about setting a routine for your day, it lifts you up and fills your soul.
