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.

Routine

Hey Readers,

My word of the week is:

Image result for routine

This is because my son on Monday started full days at nursery. I have learnt to adapt this week to the changes of times when collecting and dropping off my boy. As I also have to get the other child in my life goes to nursery.

As my son eats a main meal at school I have also had to change the meal times which is a bit frustrating wen you have to adapt. Especially when going out shopping then trying to rush a about in the kitchen like a crazy woman.

In other news my youngest this week he seems to be having the most awful tantrums that can last for like 10-15 mins. It is unusual as he normally doesn’t last three minutes usually. Oh boy do they hurt your ears as they are frequent causing me to be so tired having to deal with the drama. When we picked up my eldest he decided to have a fit because I would not get him an ice-cream from the shop. So all the way back from the school to home he whaled and screeched. I hope this is short period and hope it is linked just from tiredness at the return of going to nursery.

Hope you enjoyed your week.
