Of course, we are all so different. What works for someone may not necessarily work for you and vice versa. However, several studies have shown that having a solid routine can help manage stress and anxiety.
Having a routine can also help you feel more confident, which is exactly what we need during this stressful time.
Routines Help Us Feel In Control:
There are so many things in the world completely out of our control.
We can’t control what other people do or think.
However, we can control our habits and behaviours.
Waking up and going to sleep at the same time every day is a great place to start.
Make a List:
Do you ever have one of those days where time just passes you by?
You know you got a lot done, you just can’t recall when or how…
It’s kind of like when you go for a long drive and get to your destination in the blink of an eye.
Creating a daily list can help you keep track of what got done that day, and what needs to be taken care of the next.
Know What Works For You:
Some people need a very specific schedule to thrive, while others do better with basic sticky notes.
There is no right or wrong way to plan your day. As long as your routine works for you, that is all that matters.
Step Outside Your Comfort Zone:
If you’re open to trying something new, that’s great!
Don’t be afraid to ask yourself what else might work.
By stepping outside your comfort zone, you’ll either discover a new healthy habit, or you’ll learn what not to do next time. Learn More
