This is our last week of Create A Routine According To Your Personality. By now you should have habits and routines set in place throughout the day and night. However, that does not mean to “set it and forget it.” Occasionally, you will need to review your routine to make sure it is still serving it’s purpose.
As I wrote in the blog post, “Mind Rest – Do We Need It?” mind rest will allow you to be the person you were meant to be. It will allow you to try new things and clear your head, so you function better at home and work. One of the main purposes of the eight-week challenge is to create blocks of time during the day where your mind does not have to work as hard. It also includes blocks of time to wind down and give your mind rest so you can sleep better at night.
Review Your Routine
Reviewing your routine will keep these things in check. Throughout these eight weeks, I’ve spoken quite a bit about how having a routine helps your mind, body, and spirit. It will also save you time and money. How many times do you waste time looking for things or trying to get going in the morning because you are not sure where to start or what to do?
Habits And Routines
Habits and routines help with focus and are easier on the brain than constantly multitasking. However, when we create a habit or fall into a routine, it is hard to stop and ask ourselves if it is working as well as it could or should be. Even more importantly, with a routine and a set of habits firmly established, it is easy to keep going even when the things are not going well. That is why it is important to take some time every now and again to review our habits and routines, including the new ones.
