It’s a common occurrence that happens to a lot of us. You start to get bogged down in your normal daily routine, and everything gets a little too repetitive. We all need a little bit of help to break free from the doldrums of day-to-day life from time to time. There are ways to disrupt your daily routine for the better so you can develop healthier habits going forward.
Embrace the Uncomfortable
A big part of why we stay in our routines for so long is because they are comfortable. They don’t require a lot of brainpower, and our brains are designed to find the easiest and most familiar way to achieve a goal. By doing something uncomfortable, you challenge your brain to come up with new solutions and conclusions. When you feel uncomfortable about starting a new project or going somewhere new, try to tackle that feeling head-on, rather than trying to avoid it.
Schedule Some Freetime
Create A Purpose
We can often feel rather listless when we’ve been in the same routine for too long. Without a clear direction, we can slip into some dark places if we’re not careful. Try to find something that gives you a reason to get through your daily routine. Maybe you want to volunteer in your community, or maybe you’d like to create something no one else has before. Giving ourselves a purpose goes a long way to disrupt your daily routine for the better.
