In my post on executive dysfunction a few months ago, I believe I mentioned having a cleaning routine. I might’ve also talked about my daily routine that helps me cope on hard days. If I didn’t, I meant to.
I have both a morning and evening routine. Truthfully, I follow the former more frequently than the later. Evenings just don’t always go to plan.
The key thing to me following a routine at all?
Keep it simple.
Complexity doesn’t work for me when I’m stumbling around in the morning without coffee.
- I wake up, a key part of any morning routine.
- Splash my face with water, brush my teeth (and hair…separate process lol), and stretch.
- Make the bed.
- Walk Bacon.
And that’s it.
That is literally my early morning routine.
Everything else that comes next is part of my to-do list for the day and may or may not get done.
Do you have a routine?
