Ep 155 | Why breaking routine COULD be good for you :)

August 9, 2022

Hey Winner,

For a while there (a long while), I was setting my alarm for 5 a.m. so I could get up before everyone and start my rigid morning routine. I would do my quiet time in the Word, journal, and then work on my podcast or write until around 6:30 a.m. when I did a short strength workout before my morning run.

Why 5 a.m.? 

It was quiet in my house, and activities start at 7 a.m. with my oldest son going to gymnastics practice. If I wanted to get my time in, it had to be then. If I missed a day because I was tired or whatever else, I felt unaccomplished and unproductive. That early morning time really was the main chunk of my day I could dedicate to my writing, after all.

But...

Routines can become stale, especially if they're rigid. I've been going from 5 a.m. straight through the day without breaks or downtime to break it up. And I burned out HARD!

Today I'm going to share with you what I'm doing and why you may want to break a routine you have - it could be good for you :)

Rooting for you ~ Gabe
