Flotsam and Jetsam (Random Thoughts)

Breaking Routine

How does your day look? Do you follow a specific pattern starting when you wake up? What about when you work – are there templates you utilize to streamline your process? It’s natural to do so. Routines make lives easier. (Why reinvent the wheel every day)

The problem with habits is when we adopt certain practices that interfere with our overall well-being. I’m talking about those automatic responses we make such a part of our characters, we stop thinking about them. Specifically, the ones that start eating into our mental and physical health. And because they’re such ingrained routines, we don’t think about them.

Not until it’s too late, anyway.

That’s where this essay (reflection, whatever you’d care to call it) came from: Break the Routine or Break Yourself. (And my thanks to Creators Hub for the Write Here prompts that led to the publication)
