Does your routine require you to be stuck?

It feels like I've travelled and moved around a lot this year. And each time I've either had to re-do my routine all-together or give myself some time to readjust before jumping back in.

I'm a routines person because I feel like it's what helps me start my day of on the right foot. I've also noticed that it turns me into a morning person which allows me to accomplish more in the day when I start it early.

But I was having a conversation the other day with a friend and we were discussion travelling in the near future. As I've recently started work and finally just figured out my routine (newest member of the 5 AM club 😥), the thought of travelling to another country made me incredibly nervous only because I was just a few days into my new routine and was starting to enjoy it. I've been able to prioritize my physical health, while also maintain a healthy and stable diet.

As much as I love to travel and experience new things, going to a new place would most likely turn things upside down for a bit and that fear or instability is a but unnerving.

But then does that mean that to have a healthy routine and live a healthy life, you have to constantly be stuck in the same place? Scared to move because of fear of falling off the wagon…feeling like I'd have to start all over? Doesn’t really feel like I'd be having much of a life.

I don’t believe I should have to restrict myself to one place just to live healthy, I also wouldn’t want to. But of course (like most things), it's easier said than done. But only time will tell… I could just as easily 'fall off the wagon' without even travelling 😅 but that's part of life. As so many great people have said, "It's not about how many times you fall, but how many times you get back up" - cliché I know.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
