Recognition for Routine
Posted by Medavie Blue Cross on October 24, 2023
The obvious benefits of routine are found at work, where production is enhanced by tasks that reoccur or repeat. Routine not only helps with production but allows the mind to focus on being more creative and adept at problem solving.
Even the most insignificant routine, such as morning coffee, can set the stage for a more productive day. And if you think routine is best for factory workers who rely on consistent process, think again. Studies have shown that artists — who symbolize the very opposite of routine ― need that repetition to tap into the creative flow.
There are practical benefits of routine at home too. It is important for the things you need to accomplish on a regular basis, such as taking prescribed medications. But routine also helps with more subtle health promoters. For example, research shows that a regular sleep schedule ― a bedtime routine — is a part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Other worthwhile routines include:
Household budgets are also better managed with routine maintenance, making sure you continue to have the right investments, savings and insurance in place.
The word routine can conjure up images of a ho-hum, mundane, ordinary life. However, once you have a routine in play you soon realize the opposite is true. In fact, it allows you to be more spontaneous, not less, freeing you up to participate in activities that support your health and happiness. Here are some ways to establish a routine:
If your routine includes planning for vacations for a break from routine then travel insurance should be a 'routine' consideration.
In summary, if you think you are stuck in a boring rut, think of all the benefits a routine can bring you, and introduce even more daily ritual into your life.
