The the past couple of years word “routine” got so much bad rep, to a point where every cheap women’s magazine wrote at least one article on “10 WAYS TO GET RID OF THE ROUTINE!!!”😡
Routine is not always bad and confining, a good routine can help you relax and just let you be because your brain doesn’t really need to make a lot of decisions. Good routines structure the day and allow you to plan better.
Why I talk about that?
Every time I go away I start evaluating what I do at home. I start missing certain things and plan to get rid of the others.
Recently I have realized that most of what some would consider routine in a negative sense are rituals I do and they make me happy.☺️
I have just returned from Moscow where I have been for a week and the whole time I was there I missed my evening routine and rituals most of all.
I missed my LoFi beats, tea candles, Yogi Tea, warm sweater and Netflix fireplace.🕯 I even missed my maroon wall because if how light bounces off it.
Do you have rituals/routines which you miss when you are away from home?
