I don't really like each day being the same as the previous one, however I seem to have the same routine every morning.
Get up, have a cup of tea, take the dogs for a walk, and then have breakfast.
I am flexible the rest of the day however the early morning has no flexibility, and always stays the same.
No. I suppose there are a few things that are basically the same, like the kids go to bed at roughly the same time most nights and I tend to drink cups of tea and do a bit of editing at the same time, but we do different things each day. It depends a bit on the mood we are all in. If the kids are full of energy I try to get them out of the house as much as possible. If we're all tired we might cuddle up and read or draw, or watch a movie. I'm lucky I have the luxury of being able to be a bit flexible.
Almost. I start my day with coffee, then rush to the train station to go to work and back home. Not too much room for flexibility when you work 9 hours a day and you are 12 hours out of the house. I dream of becoming a freelancer especially for this reason.
I always want some changes in my life, so my routines also are constantly changing. I do not like to have mundane or routine set of activities each day, that would be boring. Also, having different patterns can keep others guessing about your whereabouts, just adds to the security factor!
I have always wanted a routine, truly I do want one, but I have never been able to find one I can sick to. I guess I always try to pile too much on my plate, so my never find that I can stick the routine I plan out for more than a week or two.
We did a course once that suggested just to change something about your daily routines to give a different perspective on things. So I've been trying to do that ever since, and it works. Even if it's crossing to the other side of the road when you're walking somewhere.
I have a morning and an evening ritual that I naturally do. When something is out of order my day can become chaotic.
Interestingly, Caroline Myss says that this ritual is where we come back into our bodies after sleep and we do things in a certain way to ground ourselves in the physical world again. She says that this ritual is all about engaging with our chakras and each ritual is an outward expression of the energy of the chakra.
