“The Less Routine , the More Life”
~Amos Bronson Alcott~
I have been doing a lot of thinking the last couple of days. A lot of it stems from being ignored and hurt by a site that I have been a member since February. I don’t really want to talk about that site anymore but it got me to thinking about routines. My daily routine always started and ended with that site. The in-between might change from day to day but the start and beginning routine of my day never changed. I feel stagnant and need a change.
So, this morning I am going to change my routine. I know longer want to sit at my laptop first thing in the morning and needed something else to occupy my time. I have decided to go walking. Yes, walking!!! But do to the weather conditions and my asthma I have decided to join the mall walkers.
The mall walkers begin each day with a lap or two around the mall. The weather isn’t a factor because they are indoors. The mall is closed because they gather around 8 a.m. It is a new way to start my day. Who knows, I may make this my new routine which wouldn’t be bad for several reasons.
1. It gets me out of the house and around people.
2. I will be getting some exercise.
3. I won’t have to look at my laptop and think what could have been with the site in question.
I will leave you with two questions. Have you changed your routine lately? Do you think a routine makes your life stagnant?
