The new year is slowly ticking by. It is time to look at your regular routines and re-establish those that work for you.

Time to get focussed

The festive season is over. With the first week of the new year at an end it is time to focus on where the year is heading. Many of us put goals and aspirations aside over the last few weeks, simply content to enjoy the moment. But. don't become a drifter and let this become a habit. You don't want to be sitting here in a few months time asking yourself where the first quarter of the year has gone.
Don't wait a day longer. Now is the time to re-establish routines that are successful for you, or put new ones into place.

Return to Successful Routines

Routines can add an element of sanity to your life. Doing the same thing at the same time on a regular basis means you're more likely to keep going. It is a lot easier to know where your life is heading if you establish regular habits and stick to them.
Think about your previous personal life style routines, be they concerning your health and fitness, family life or simply maintaining balance between work and the rest of your life.
Think about what has worked for you in the past, therefore routines you wish to continue. Don't waste time any longer, restore those routines into your life today and keep at them until they become positive habits.

Eliminate Routines that Haven't Worked in the Past

Just because you've always done something doesn't mean you need to keep doing it. If a lifestyle routine hasn't really worked for you in the past, eliminate it. But don't just leave it at that, consider what would be a more positive routine and establish that in your life.
Take time to reflect on what hasn't worked for you and what more positive routines might be effective in the life you want to live.

Routines Enable Goals to Be Achieved

With one week of the new year already gone it is definitely time to stop drifting. Stop procrastinating and re-introduce routines into your life now. Routines ensure you know what you need to be doing and offer a road map for where you're going. You need routines in your life if you are to achieve your goals.
So, are you ready for it? Get your life back on tack and organise yourself today. Wishing you every success in re-establishing routines in your life.

Excellent article for those who can make use of it. If I'd ever had any routines in my life, I might be able to re-establish them. I spent the holidays the same way I spend my entire life.

Some great advice there Val and it is remarkable how easy it is to relapse back into bad routines.
