Routine is just not sexy. I've spent most
of my time rebelling from mundanities
- seeking out new experiences - rejecting
routine, afraid it would shape me into
some sort of suburban robot.
In truth, I was just scared to commit.
To a plan, to a job, to myself. We all
know structure is essential for a child's
development, but forget that inconsistency is emotionally distressing
for adults, too. Schedules provide a framework for life - something successful
people have long known. Without a routine in place, nothing can be achieved
and you waste a helluva lot of time.
If you've ever faced a life crisis, you'll appreciate the importance of a regime
more than the next person. That 8am walk around the block or daily phone
call to a friend can be the difference between having a reason to wake up in the
morning or not.
During these uncertain times, it's the small stuff that can offer us a sense of
respite and stability. And studies show those who adopt a clear daily routine
find greater meaning in their lives than those who don't. Now that's sexy.
