Perhaps some find routine, order and structure boring because of the desire for distraction from the daily routines of school, work, getting up, cooking, shopping, and so forth.
We can perceive routine as dampening, uninteresting, not valuable or important and such. It’s worth journaling on this to discover what your attitude is to routine and the story you tell yourself about routine and structure.
Routine can save us a lot of time. If I put my car keys, the scissors, in a definite place always, then finding them when I need them is a cinch. If I charge my phone in the same place at the same time every day, then I don’t suddenly run out of battery! If I have definite times I drink water such as before breakfast, then I remember to take it and reap all the benefits of this important habit.
So often we’re resisting what will help us so much and reduce stress, because of faulty beliefs, attitudes, stories we tell ourselves. We go with emotion, what we feel like and desire rather than use our power to think and to make conscious choices and aspire to more.
Order, structure, rhythm, discipline – these are key qualities we need to build now in developing our consciousness. Without these we just drift along, often experiencing overwhelm and wasting a lot of time.
