Daily Routine? Why Does It Matter??

The Healthy Connections course and self-care habits I teach are based on a rhythm of your daily routine.  But why put so much effort into establishing a consistent daily routine?  Does the sequencing of my day really matter when I have checked all my to-do boxes and lay my head on my pillow at night?

Let’s start right there.  Why do we lay our heads down at night?  Unless a responsibility prevents you from sleeping at night, that’s when we all get our big rest period in.  So why don’t you choose to get your 7-8 hours of sleep in during the middle of the day?  The answer for sleep, digestion, exercise, work, play, and other activities is that we want to do them when it’s most efficient for our bodies. These theories are based in Ayurveda, which is a 5000-year-old practice.  Ayurveda evolved from people called rishis or seers of truth.  These rishis observed the world and our natural rhythms and strived to bring our energies into balance.

Balance: (verb) keep or put (something) in a steady position so that it does not fall.

A daily routine of self-care can keep you or put you into balance.  If you are out of balance, about to fall, you need tools to help you regain control and get back into balance. Deep down inside you probably don’t want to give up. However, you’ve tried before, and failed. Right? You are not alone. Health is not a one stop shop.  There’s not a magic pill or secret fairy dust, but there is hard work, time, and desire.  We’ve all heard that nothing can substitute for a hard day’s work.  The same goes for your health.  You didn’t get to where you’re at overnight or with a magic pill, so why do you think you can reverse things that way? A consistent routine including time for yourself, healthy eating, exercise, work, play, and rest are all necessary in the dance of life. Learn more.
