Building Good Routines
If there’s one thing I can promise you about yourself, it’s that you live in a series of routines.
They may be big and obvious, or small and seemingly insignificant - but they’re there. Humans are creatures of habit through and through, and your routines make up most of your life. It’s for this reason that building healthy routines is so important.
As the weather changes and we enter into a new season - of life and of the year, it’s the perfect time to explore the ways in which changing routines may be a good idea. Building healthy routines starts by vision casting - by taking the time to understand and explore what it looks like to live like you want to.
Daydream a little. What would your ideal day look like? What do you want to do first thing out of bed in the morning, and how do you want to go to bed at night? Ask yourself these very real, honest questions, and consider what it would take to make them happen.
Go slow. You can’t change your instincts overnight, and taking the time to do it properly will be well worth it. One thing at a time, challenge yourself each week to make a shift towards a different kind of life.
Over time, the pieces will fall into place. You’ll how the routines change the outcome, and the process becomes whole as you change with it.
Your dream life isn’t out of reach. But it’s not something you can get to by the flick of a switch or the press of a button. It is a slow process, or growth and greatness and journeying.
