Shaking Up Your Routine
Yesterday was the first day in about a month that I didn’t write a blog post. Up to that point I’d had a fairly entrenched routine even if I did end up writing blog posts at different times of the day. However over the last week I’ve found it more and more difficult to find the right inspiration to write effectively. And with Christmas so close I decided to skip a day yesterday and it was very refreshing.
I think after a while of doing the same things day after day we need to shake up your routine and either vary something or maybe it’s time to skip it altogether. It’s the same if you’ve got a workout routine every day – it’s good to change it up or it ends up becoming very mundane.
The result was today when I sat down to write a blog post I had no trouble coming up with an idea – a feeling I haven’t felt for at least a week.
Is there something in your life that you need to “shake up”? This could be anything literally. Earlier this year I decided to vary my routine of driving to work each day. I purposefully chose to drive to work using five different routes for the week. Driving to work can get very mundane and it’s important to challenge ourselves and to challenge our brains.
