Rearranging daily schedule – part refinement, part being more efficient in terms of my productive time – but mostly it shakes me up. Shakes me up. Shakes me up. Complacency cobwebs invade, making me (perhaps everyone) comfortable in our ‘way of doing things’.
Test yourself next time someone’s action or circumstances prevent you from doing something deeply ingrained in your daily routine.
Rather than wrestling with that one-off occurrence, make it a ‘new way of doing things’. Not every day, but ‘sometimes’. Adaptability makes us better, makes us stronger and more effective in dealing with stress, distress or chaos when it visits – because we are able to weave in strongest wind. We aren’t concreted immovably.
Good for the head.
Good for belly angst too, because it reminds us to be flexible rather than rigid.
