Day 9 of 31 - Establishing Routine When Life is Everything But...



Living with chronic illnesses and physical limitations can at times be daunting at best. I plug away at it daily anyway, giving it my best effort. For years now I have been telling myself, "you're above ground taking in air - it's a good day". Some days are better than others in efforts and outcomes but I give my all.

All that aside, setting a routine when life isn't ordinary or conducive to routines can be a challenge to say the least. Routines especially those established for bodily exercise, emotional replenishment, or revitalization of self and spirit are vital, yet at times difficult to maintain. 

We need to take the time to routinely maintain these components of our makeup if we are to function properly. These are things to look for when adding activities to help us with this
  •  activities that serve these purposes
  •  activities that are inspiring
  •  activities that leave us feeling invigorated and wanting more
There is a reason for the last one. We as humans tend to not want to do what is good for us, unless there's something in it for us. Well that feel good feeling, is our reward, our incentive to go back and do it again. 

So take care of yourselves and if nothing else at least maintain a routine for these core things to take care of your greatest assets.
