What Are Your Daily Habits/Routines and Are They Beneficial?

From Google

A habit is an action we do often in a regular and repeated way. Routine is a regular way of doing things in a particular order. A routine is made of several habits. The main difference between habit and routine is that habit is a recurrent, often unconscious action whereas routine is a set of habits.

As I start this day, one of the messages that popped up on my YouTube feed talked about Meditation and Healing your body. Prayer and Meditation along with 30 minutes of exercise has been apart of my daily routine for years…I eat healthy with no junk food, if I stop to get get drive through I pick a healthy option, I only drink water, watered down lemonade, tea and coffee from time to time. I have drastically cut back on potatoes, rice, noodles and bread. I have been a fan of fruits and veggies for years. I try to not eat after 6:30pm. I get plenty of sleep every night, that has not been a problem for years. So, what am I not doing right in my daily routine, created habits and rituals? I am heavier that I should be and it feels like my body doesn’t want to move, even when I am dedicated to make sure that I get purposeful movement in everyday. I have had double knee replacement and my left knee is having some issues. My orthopedic told me at the time of my surgeries that I needed to get the weight off for my surgeries to be successful or I would need to have it repeated sometime in the future. I have been going around and around in my mind trying to figure out why the weight stays when I feel like my daily routine/habits should create me feeling and looking more healthy.

Today on YouTube a video popped up addressing Stress, the host of the YouTube asked the Guest , why is it that even when he meditated daily why does he come back to the thoughts of life and worries. The Guest said that when you meditate, you are to clear your mind and let go out the outer world and to not absorb it into your body. This time allows your body to rest, relax and heal from the experiences that we have allowed into our bodies that are not healthy. It is to give us a foundation to fall back on in a thought or a sound that reminds out spirit of what peace feels like, but we need to be mindful.

It was like Ding Ding Ding…Today I understand what I have been doing or not doing….taking the calm and peace into my daily walk to help guide me through the potential challenges of a day because I and stop breathe and remember the calm.

I have become so unhappy in my life in Vegas for so many reasons that I can list without thought and I need to really to accept the reality of it but to let it go and move past it with peace. I have encountered people that complain, have life challenges and are stuck and I want so much better for them and it almost feels that they don’t see the lack…but then I have gotten to the place of not seeing my lack that has held me back from being my best.

What does your daily routine look like and is it beneficial in creating a great day, future, better health and infectious energy? Sometime, I think we can get so caught up in habits that we identify as healthy and not even realize how unhealthy we are.

I try to engage on social media to find out what people do everyday, do they have a daily routine and what does that look like, do they go to work and does that feel fulfilling and more…but I don’t find that people really want to share about they real lives, so how connected are we really. Social Media is a great platform to share insights in healing Mind-Body-Sprit and I have dialogue around this.

So, now I write blogs to share my thoughts in hopes that it might make you think about your own life. You do not have to agree with me and that I am okay with, but sometimes I think it is good to cross paths with someone that makes us stop and think. I think that is why I am drawn to YouTube everyday to find what life messages will I hear. At times I could come across a video that I have seen many times, but in that moment of the present…it now resonates with me differently.

What does your Daily Routine/Habits look like, how did you come about those actions or nonaction and how does it benefit you to obtain more of__________ ? Today, I challenge you to look at what you have created for yourself and if you need to explore doing something differently…and if you find that you need to make a change, will you commit to work on the needed change.
