In a world that often feels chaotic and unpredictable, I have discovered a source of stability and grounding: having a consistent routine. Having a consistent routine provides a sense of order and control amidst the uncertainties of daily life. It allows me to establish a rhythm and frees up mental energy for more important tasks. By knowing what to expect, I can navigate my day with greater ease.
A consistent routine nurtures our well-being. It allows us to establish healthy habits and rituals that support our physical and mental health. By consistently engaging in activities like exercise, meditation, or creative pursuits, we can improve our overall well-being and cultivate a sense of fulfillment.
Routine also contributes to better sleep patterns. I’ve been pursuing a consistent bedtime routine to become attuned to a regular sleep-wake cycle. Since I have significantly reduced the amount of time I spend on my phone and computer I now spend the last couple hours before bedtime with gentle yoga, and even reading an actual book. I’m sure you’ve heard that the light on our phones negatively affects our sleep cycle.
I have an established morning routine that creates a positive start to my day. I definitely feel better when I have grounded myself with the structure of my morning and night routines.
