ROUTINES ARE NATURAL


According to the Oxford dictionary, routine means a sequence of actions regularly followed; fixed patterns

Do you realize that all of us require routines each day otherwise the day will be pretty aimless? Routines are natural - nature has its routines: spring, summer, autumn, winter. The trees, they bear buds in spring which come into full blossom in summer; in autumn, the leaves explode into phenomenal color changes, they fall off to prepare for their resting period in winter. Each year, trees go through the same phases - that is a natural occuring routine.

On the other hand, it is just as essential that we have time off from our usual routines - simply to relax, to regenerate, to bond with our family and perhaps to do some deep soul-searching. The saying "too much of anything isn't good" is true. So, whatever you are doing - whether you are answering your emails or working in the studio or taking care of young children, make a habit of taking constant breaks, go for a walk to clear your head or hire a babysitter to watch the kids for an hour or two, and when you come back to face your tasks, you will feel happier about finishing what you have to do.
