Why daily routines are good

Hey readers,

I love having a daily routine. There are times in my life where things happen such as Christmas where that routine goes out of the window. During these times it really makes me appreciate a routine even more. I literally pine after that routine and get itchy feet to put down a to-do-list for the day.

Here are some positive reasons why having a daily routine can be really beneficial to you.

Because it creates automatic habits over time that you don’t need to think about. Therefore, leading to not having to use your time to think about it means you are being more efficient to do other things.

Less need to plan when you have a regular routine because you subconsciously just do it, in turn, leads to healthy habits that you automatically do over time.

Routines help creates motivation to keep going because you can see the benefits that a routine is having on your life.

Once you have your s**t together you will be quicker. Therefore more time to relax.

Less likely to procrastinate because you wire your brain to do the things that need doing as you have a plan and know what to expect.

You will feel more in control as you know what you are doing, giving you the confidence to get stuff done.

Having a plan for the day can help you get a better night sleep when you know what to expect without having to dread the night before what the day will happen.

It gives you a sense of security as you know what to expect and can make you feel comfortable about life.

Routines help reduces stress levels as you feel more confident, in control and having that sense that you can get something done in a day.

Having a routine can help give you a structure to your day.

I hope that has inspired you.

  1. I agree! I am just getting back to my routine and it feels good to know what I’m doing every day. While my schedule does fluctuate, it helps that I know what’s coming up and how to prepare for it. I love my night time routine the most though because it really helps me wind down after a long day and I fall asleep faster with it:) #anythinggoes

  3. I believe that having a routine is key to a successful family life, I was once told that I was boring because I appeared to have everything in order, I replied that it is called being organised #dreamteam@_karendennis


  4. I don’t really have a routine, but kinda wish I did. I am working extra shifts all over the place at the moment and it’s really throwing me. I didn’t know if I was coming or going over Christmas lol.

  5. This really coincides well with a post I have written this evening about needing to have a better routine. I feel so much better for having one. I finally feel like I have my sh*t together!! Thanks for sharing with #TriumphantTales this week.

  6. A routine can be very useful and a break from that routine is even more useful 😉
    0% routine will make most people feel unsettled and ungrounded.
    100% routine (all the time) poses the danger of reducing opportunities for growth and heightened awareness.

  7. Yes! This. You mention about routines can reduce stress levels and I think you are right. We are still a bit out of sorts after the Christmas break and I definitely have noticed the stress levels going up and up. Thanks for the reminder! This has given me the kick I need to get more organised. Thanks for joining us for the #DreamTeam xxx
