Ep. 6 - When You Aren’t a Fan of Routines

If you don’t love routines, you probably think routines kill all the fun. 

Who wants to stick around home and clean and do laundry when there are so many better things to do?

Even if you are routine-resistant, you may be surprised to learn how much of your life already consists of routines – and why your brain actually craves them. 

Think routines keep you trapped? Think again. 

Routines don’t restrict freedom. They create it.

“Routines can become so automatic that we start performing them without realizing it. So we get done what needs to get done, even when our minds are preoccupied with other things.”

“Routines remove the need to deliberate over what you should do when (which takes time and energy) because once you’ve established a routine you’ve already made those decisions.” 

In this episode:

  • When You Aren’t a Fan of Routines

  • Why your brain loves routines
  • How routines create freedom
