Think about yourself like a battery. Let's assume that you wake up each Monday with a 100% charge. When you check your phone and see a full inbox from the weekend, your charge goes down to 99% just due to the flood of emotions that comes from the urgency of work. All of the micro moments that make up our day either charge or deplete us. When we become more aware of our energy as well as how we can better protect and restore it, we are able to live a more energized life. This is where the importance of a routine comes in.Your sleep and your daily routines are the main charge for your day. Acknowledging the energy that you exert on your weekdays vs. your weekends is a mindful way to really understand how you can best recharge to your fullest self every day.
When crafting a routine that you want to make habitual, it's crucial to consider how you want to feel during your routine to ensure that it is genuinely supporting the person that you are becoming. At the start of your Routine Journal, you work through your Ideal Routine Worksheet that guides your through key areas of your daily living to get clear on what is most supportive for you in your weekday vs. weekend routine.
