I don’t know why routines get such a bad reputation. For one, I think sticking to a routine is important if you want to feel more settled when you’re feeling restless. When my routines are out of whack, I find it hard to be productive and tick off my to-do list. Creating a routine is definitely one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself.
Need more convincing? Here are 5 reasons why routines are good for you!
- It gives us something to look forward to
Because creating a routine is so personal, I make sure that I add elements of fun and things I love in them like eating a yummy and healthy breakfast of overnight oats every morning. Since incorporating it into my routine, I’ve been hitting the snooze button less in the morning too.
- It helps us be more efficient
With distractions coming at us everywhere nowadays, feeling like we have too many tabs open in our heads is an all too familiar feeling. Routines help with minimizing that and does wonders for our productivity!
- It gives us more time
So many things to do and not enough time? Get yourself a routine ASAP! You’ll be amazed at how much time you’ll have on your time when you have a regular routine because routines also means that you’re in charge of your time and you’ll have a clearer idea on how to allocate them during the day.
- It helps form habits
Whether you’re wanting to develop new habits or desperate to break a bad one, doing it routinely makes it more likely to stick!
- It’s essential for reaching your goals
There’s a reason why athletes train regularly, dancers have rehearsals, and you have to practice driving before you get your license. Doing things regularly brings you closer to achieving your goal. Now, who wouldn’t want that?
