Thought of the Day: March 21, 2018 – Go Beyond Repeating Days
Here is what my repeating days used to look like.
I would get up each morning. Hit my snooze button three or four times. Get out of bed and take a shower. I would drink a shake, if I had time, and head to work.
I would get to work and figure out what I had to complete for that day. Depending on the level of concentration I needed to have, I would put on a podcast or listen to music.
I would get up periodically and walk around, looking for someone to talk to. I would eat my breakfast, snacks and lunch at my desk. At lunch, I would read or go for a walk and not really talk to anyone.
When I got home, I would make dinner and read some more. I would also workout, meditate, call a few people and/or spend time on social media depending on how I felt.
At night I would watch television, a movie or maybe have someone over.
Finally, I would go to sleep.
After a while, I noticed I was repeating days and sometimes I would even forget what day it was. Are you in a continuous routine that you can’t get out of? Has this happen to you?
This is no way to live life but most of us do from the age of 20 to death.
I believe it is important to notice when you are in a rut and go beyond the consecutive days that seem to become who we are.
If you are not doing something to change the sequence of your day, you might be falling in to the trap. Recall the movie Groundhog Day with Bill Murray?
You do not have to have repeating days. You can change the course of your day when you decide you do not want to live the same day all over again.
