Good afternoon, friends and neighbors!
I’m a big believer in the power of routine. It encourages good habits when you have a daily mindset of “A, followed by B, followed by C…” In my case, my mornings consist of:
- Wake up.
- Eat breakfast- a bowl of cereal, some protein and a cup of vegetable juice on work days, a more involved breakfast on weekends (say, a loaded omelette.)
- Meditation practice, minimum 15 minutes.
- Shower, dress, depart for work.
I go through the steps, everything I want to get done gets done, and I’m on my way.
Routines are, however, by their nature a structure. Structures are, by custom, rigid and also encourage rigid thinking. Every now and then, it’s good to “shake it up” and learn to “go with the flow” again.
