Ways to Change Routine

All of us are aware that kids need a routine to provide structure and discipline in their lives. When we were younger, most of us were told to go to bed at a certain time, wake up at a certain time, do our homework after school, eat dinner at a regular hour, shower, even play with our friends at a specific time. But what about adults? Many grownups do not have a set daily routine and ‘wing’ their day. They have no idea what they are going to do when they wake up each morning because they have not thought about creating a schedule to adhere to. As a result, many people feel like they are stressed, anxious, overwhelmed and falling short of their goals and true potential. The answer lies in carefully designing a routine that works best for each of us, one which helps us be productive, in control, and be the best person we can possibly be.


Whether it is anyone, at a given point all of us get bored of the monotonous routine. As humans we feel lethargic and lifeless.

Since, it is the holiday season and I am assuming that most of you would be going out to meet your family and celebrate. But for those who want to lay back and stay home, here are things you can try staying inside.

Shifting Positions
Sometimes staying a particular way just gets monotonous. You can shift anything that is easy to move for one or two people. Try changing the way your bedroom is done or for that matter your living area. If you have a small apartment, try moving things from their current position. Try new settings inside. I know, some of you must be wondering that I like it how it is now, but sometimes bringing in some change is not that bad either…

    “Routine” (like following a list) brings order, and though some might say they don’t like it, humans seek order in everything they do. It’s how the brain works. I think we see the worst consquences in adults who allow chaos to rule their day and world. Good article.

      Yes Ray. Routines are importance to reduce chaos. It can sound counter-intuitive but developing a daily routine can help us to feel more in control of everything, and help us to make room for all that’s important. Routine can aid our mental health. It can help us to cope with change, to form healthy habits, and to reduce our stress levels.

    Routine is the biggest chaos. (Law of Thermodynamics), however, cosmos works in order, sun rises in east sets in west, planetary revolutions, moon, so yes I agree routine is helpful to create more chaos which is more order and more routine. 😛

    I think people confuse routine with discipline. Or it could be the other way around.
    Establishing routine once you let go off it is quite hard. I have trying for the last year to get hold of one. But it still remains elusive.
    I wonder if it is a mental barrier or me just procrastinating.
