Yes it is absolutely important to break routines. I do that on weekends or when I know I’m burning out. Also some days I just follow my mood. What I feel like doing, literally. Eating when I’m hungry and sleeping when I’m sleepy. It really helps to break from a routined life especially if you have obsessive compulsive traits when it comes to scheduling and work.
I believe that mornings and evenings need to have a routine. Getting ready for the day and winding down seem to work better when our bodies now what to expect
10/10. Do not break from routines, it'll help keep you in check but you can add to routines to continue to better yourself.
I prefer to stick to a routine for the most part of the day because I find that a routine helps me cope with things/ situations better.
- How do you avoid from having the habit of pushing stuff for the next day?
- I have so many things to do in a day, I am a mother, a student, I have a job, exercise. I really can’t imagine narrowing a day’s to-do list to just three items. How can this be done?
- How do you choose how to group and order your tasks so they’re not as overwhelming?
- On your to do list, you always make first the most important to do? I always tend to run away
- Is it bad if I do not accomplish all the tasks in my to do list?
- How far in advance do you put tasks on your to do list? I am a big procrastinator and if I see something on my to do list that’s not due for a while I tend to just ignore it. Any suggestions on how to solve this?
- How far ahead should one write their list.. i.e. daily, weekly or monthly?
- Is it any way to make do to list more creative but still keep them simple?
- What strategies do you use to prioritize & organize “to do now” vs “to do later” tasks?
- How to make sure you stick to your list when something else that you need to finish first just popped out?
