A routine is a very efficient tool to use when one wants to overcome trauma. Routines are useful to inculcate habits…though I, personally, don’t seem to incorporate habits even if I incorporate them into my routine. Routines help one feel secure. That is all the utility that routines have.
I find routines extremely limiting and suffocating. They are numbing…mind numbing to be precise. They limit my expression, my ability and my space. They suffocate the artist in me.
I wish to create a semi-fixed and semi-flexible routine for myself so that I can achieve a healthy balance.
