The Many Benefits Of Having a Routine & How To Plan Your Day For Success

There is something very grounding and calming about having a predictable schedule.

It’s a common misconception that only children thrive on routine, but that is not the case. Teens and adults do as well.

Structure can help reduce the need to be constantly making decisions, which can help prevent anxiety. 

Now, you may be thinking to yourself, “I’d love to get started but have no idea where to begin.”

Well, you’re in the right place. Keep on reading.

What Would Your Ideal Day Look Like?

Before we get started, here’s something for you to think about.

If you were to plan your ideal day from start to finish, what would it like?

When would you wake up? 

What would you eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner?

How would you make your chores more fun? 

What time would you go to bed?

Okay, once you have thought about what your ideal day would look like, take some time to think about how you can make those wishes a reality.

What Are Your Goals This Week?

Planning your day is one thing; planning your week is something else.

No matter how organized and predictable your days might be, there will always be little things that come up last minute we have no control over. 

That’s where weekly planning comes into play. 

Your weekly list should include items that are important but can easily be pushed back a day or two if something comes up. 

Every Sunday night or Monday morning, set aside a few minutes to jot down five things you would love to get done one day that week. It also never hurts to give yourself some buffer time, in case something takes longer than anticipated. 


Just because a goal or habit may sound great in theory doesn’t mean it’s great for you. 

You know yourself better than anyone. If something in your routine feels off or just isn’t working, it may be time to walk away or go about it in a new way.

Re-evaluating is not the same as quitting!

How to Embrace Failure

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could finally embrace failure? Here are a few ways you can fail your way to success.

Identify as a Beginner

Every expert was once a beginner just like you! When trying to learn something new, questions will be your best friend.

There is no such thing as a stupid question, so don’t be afraid to ask many.

Criticism is a Good Thing

We get it, not a lot of people enjoy being criticized.

But it’s actually one of the best ways to learn.

Think about it. Just because you’re doing something “the right away” doesn’t mean there isn’t a better way.

Don’t be afraid to go out there and encourage others to criticize you.

There is always more to learn. You just have to be open to it.

Don’t Expect Overnight Success

Just because you’re having a hard time learning something new, doesn’t mean you’ll never get there.

Take a few minutes to brainstorm 5 things you’re already great at!

Now, be honest with yourself. Did you master those skills overnight? Or did it take time and dedication?

Take Breaks

Staying up all night working may sound like a good idea in the moment – but it’s actually far from the truth
You have to listen to what your body is telling you.

When you feel overworked – take a break. If you’re angry – walk around the block. When you’re ready, you can come back to the task with a new attitude.

Tips And Strategies to Reach Your Goals

No matter how large or small your goal may be, it’s key to go in with a plan.

How will you get from point A to point B? How will you motivate yourself to reach the finish line?

Here are a few strategies to keep in mind before you get started.

Focus on the Progress

You may think that the end result is the most important thing.

That is not always the case. It’s actually the steps you take.

Even though your day to day actions may feel insignificant at the moment, they do add up.

Let’s say your goal is to earn an extra $50 this month from your side hustle.

However, at the end of the month, you only earned an extra $45.

If you did everything you could and feel proud, you did reach your goal.

Visualize Success

Before you even get started, don’t be afraid to visualize what your life will be like, once you accomplish that goal.

Several studies show that visualization can connect the brain’s intentions to the body. If you can dream it, you can do it.

Keep it Visible

Writing down your goals can help them feel more real. After you write your goal down, don’t toss that piece of paper away. Instead, keep it somewhere visible. Something you look at every single day.

Doing so, will keep you motivated and in the game.
