Shaking things up is not in contrast to intentionality. It’s just adding to it some innovation, some imagination, and some new ideas.Dr. Michael Brown
- Too much routine and too little variety in life can cause us to feel unmotivated.
- When we view a routine in one dimension of life as a strict rule, it can actually have a negative impact on the other dimensions of life.
- Some of our current routines are old and outdated, and they are no longer helping us to become the best versions of ourselves.
- Rhythms and routines, though they are helpful, should never become rules.
- Shaking things up can re-energize our productivity and reorient our outlook in life.
- There are times when breaking our routines is actually more beneficial than keeping our routines.
- Ask yourself the question: “What can I do this week that I have never done before?”
- When you are struggling to stay motivated to do what you need to do, take intentional steps to change your environment.
- Trick your muscles by adjusting your workout routine each month by implementing new forms of physical activity and by changing the order or speed of each exercise.
