I don't have one. Not even the order of brushing my teeth, washing my face, and saying my prayers is the same every night. I used to though. In high school I had a routine for everything I did; the way I exercised, the way I got ready for bed, the way I didn't do my homework, the way I cleaned my room. I cleaned Saturday mornings then took a long bath, shaved my legs, straightened my hair, and hung out with my friends...every Saturday.
The only routeen I had since I got married was when I was pregnant with Graham I would wake up around noon everyday puke my heart out, brush my teeth then drive to Sonic and get a diet coke with vanilla.
I have been thinking about this a lot lately. Why don't I have a routine? I tell myself, "I get bored easily.
And it wouldn't be as fun." Buuut my schedule isn't what I would call fun. It's more like survival mode.
Now that we are in our own house and we plan on being here for awhile I should be able to get settled and make some really good habits. My dad always talked to us about making good habits. He used the example of how he gets ready in the morning. He turned the shower water on while he put tooth paste on his toothbrush then did whatever else he did but he did it the same every morning for 20+ years. He told us if we wanted to do something to make it a habit.
So I would like some advice. I know schedules are so important. My kids are on a really good schedule but I am not.
How do you do it?
I'm going to make a list of things I want to do then fit them into my routeen and make then habits!! I'll let you know how it goes.
