What are your routines? What kinds of actions do you take that make it possible for you to do what you need to do? Do you have routines that are dragging you down? That you need to change? That you need to revamp?
I have several routines. One of my better ones is my morning during the week. Though there are days when I don’t really want to move from the comfort of my night, I do love to run early in the morning because it sets my day up right. When I don’t run, I can feel that I’m off all day long. Why is this routine important? Because it gets me moving, thinking, praying, and noticing.
When I’m working, my routine can vary some. I move from writing to grading, to course tasks, to reports, to my own courses where I’m a student and back and around again. This includes emails and communication with students, mentors, and my boss. One routine that has helped me greatly is putting together a weekly calendar so I know what else is coming up each day. It makes me feel good when I put the green highlight through something I’ve finished.
It’s a start, my routines. But I like to think I’m open to new ways and new ideas and new adventures too.
