31 Days of Self Love
Day 18: What is one change you can make to increase your happiness?
Improving my routine would be one change I could make in my life that would greatly increase my happiness. I guess that to do that I would make SEVERAL changes, but overall for me, it is about having a routine I can follow.
Don’t get me wrong, I like spontaneity. But I like most of my days to be filled with a routine that can allow me to get enough sleep, spend time being creative, moving in the world the way I want to, and finding space for other people.
Currently my routine revolves mostly around work, eat, sleep, repeat. I then use every weekend to recuperate and be in control of how I spend my days. Which means I’m actually only living 2 days a week…and that is neither acceptable nor sufficient.
I am a person who needs to live every single day by my rules. That means working…because I love to work. But it doesn’t not mean ONLY working….because that is just a fucking unhealthy imbalance.
My commitment to myself is to work on my routine. I think I’ll start by going back to Miracle Mornings since they were very helpful to me in setting my day up the way I wanted. And from there I can add the other things back into my plan.
