As we welcome 2024, we may choose to embark on a journey towards self-improvement. Often, this includes setting “New Year’s Resolutions” to enhance our quality of life. Resolutions are ubiquitous and vary from person to person. There is no “right” or “wrong” resolution, as each person is unique in their aspirations and desires. The term “self-improvement,” too, is multifaceted. Perhaps one’s version of improvement may entail implementing an exercise routine. Another may include introducing a new consistent sleep schedule. Whatever it may be, the power of routine is universal.

Whether to stimulate the mind, establish new beginnings, or implement change, introducing routine enables you to start fresh and increase productivity. In turn, heightened productivity enables you to do more in both a professional and personal context. Establishing a routine can be transformative, as it provides a framework that facilitates structure and self-discipline in our everyday lives.

Routine can also help foster comfort. Predictability is reassuring; awareness of what comes next often reduces anxiety and stress related to uncertainty. Perhaps the strongest benefit of routine is its ability to promote healthy habits. Whether it’s journaling, meditation, extracurriculars, or a daily skincare routine, incorporating habits strengthens the foundation for a healthier mind and lifestyle. 

Self-discipline, as mentioned earlier, is a critical component of routine. A well-defined routine enables individuals to effectively designate time for the things that matter most. Such a disciplined approach will allow for a delicate balance between all of life’s demands.

We often strive to set a routine that is simply not sustainable, which ultimately leads to feelings of disappointment and failure. While in the pursuit of a well-defined routine, consider the following:

  1. Set realistic and achievable goals
  2. Establish a clear plan with manageable steps
  3. Dedicate a designated amount of time for said routine
  4. Eliminate any hurdles or distractions that may disrupt your routine
  5. Regularly assess your routine to ensure its continued effectiveness throughout the new year
  6.       Practice patience

Creating a sustainable routine is no easy feat. Recognize that implementing a routine is a process and will likely take time. It is important to embrace the journey and acknowledge that gradual progress is still progress. 

The power of routine is undeniable and serves as a true catalyst for positive habits and achieving goals. Incorporating routine, whether drastic or subtle, will undoubtedly contribute to a more productive year ahead. 

So, what does routine look like for you? Spend a bit of time devising a plan to unlock your full potential and define this year through meaningful growth and development. Above all, you are not alone on your journey toward healing and self-improvement. 

Perhaps consider downloading an app that may aid in creating a routine. Routine-based apps enable users to create a concrete routine, prioritize self-care, and track daily habits, mindfulness techniques, and more. Often, such apps serve as a visual representation of growth which is quite encouraging. I only hope this suggestion is equally as effective for you all. As always, continue to take care of yourselves.
