The hardest thing about a routine is building it. While I read it takes 66 days to build a habit changing your routine can take years. I’ve tried for years to build a routine that includes exercise. At one point many years ago I was able to pull it off but the circumstances were ideal. Now I find myself in a similar ideal situation and I’m not going to pass it up.
Routines build endurance. It’s true sometimes the grind is a bit much but getting back into a routine is a lot easier than building a new one. It’s actually like a safety net. When things are way out of whack remembering your routine can put you back on track.
