Routines Are Fragile Things
At least in my experience it is really hard to start and maintain a routine unless we've been doing it most of our lives. I rarely feel inconvenienced when I'm about to brush my teeth. And yet when I consider my daily walk (or my hoped for daily walk) or quiet moments of meditation it is so easy to find something else to do even if the something else is nothing. I've read that it takes a month to turn a routine into a habit. I'm thinking it takes years. Even if that is the case, though, I'd like to think that I'd still give forming new and positive habits a try. Wouldn't you?
