Routines are something people talk about a lot. Routines are notoriously hard to pin down, but they don't need to be so elusive. It's all about planning. When I'm on track, finding my routine is easy and I can keep a "streak" going for weeks, even months. My problem with routines is when something happens to break it, which is just inevitable. I need to learn to hop straight back on that horse. I would be unstoppable.

People tend to break routines down into periods - their morning routine, their evening routine. As I was sitting down to write this, I was planning on writing about my entire day, but let's see where this goes...

Morning: My alarm goes off; 7am. Previously, I would snooze this repeatedly for 30 minutes.

I've started actually waking up and getting out of bed at 7am. My new goal is to keep this up for October.

I'll then head downstairs, do a quick 7 minute workout to get me started for the day. While I'm cooling off, I'll put the kettle on, practice my French on Duolingo and plan the rest of my day over that first cup of tea before heading back upstairs to get a shower, brush my teeth and get changed.

Let's improve our routine.

    @craigpetterson I love routines too. They are like automation but for body/mind, helps me conserve energy for other things.

      @jasonleow I like that way of thinking - this is the premise behind atomic habits too!
