I had a crazy dream last night. I am not even sure it was a dream, or if I was in fact time traveling. Nonetheless, I woke up to a blaring alarm, kinda out of it!
My usual routine was disrupted. I like to ease into my morning by having a quiet half hour to just sit and have a cup of coffee, scrolling social media and waking up. But with the crazy wake up alarm (I usually wake up before the alarm goes off), and then my daughter waking up early, my routine went out the door.
It was fine, but different. And this got me thinking a bit about all the routines we have in our lives. How we wake up and do certain things every single day, like clockwork. How we take the same roads and routes to the places we frequent. How we go to the same restaurants and shop at the same stores.
There is nothing wrong with this of course, but at times we can find ourselves in a rut. I have written about this before, but it was on my mind again this morning.
Just for fun, what can you do today that is totally different and out of your routine? It may feel weird or downright uncomfortable, but try it anyway. I wonder if you might enjoy getting out of the day to day routine and into some new energy.
I am going to try this little experiment, and I will report back tomorrow.
