Routines can be incredibly helpful in boosting productivity both in business and your personal life. Establishing a routine means creating a set of habits that you consistently follow, and this will help you stay focused and motivated throughout the day.
One of my favorite benefits of having a routine is that it eliminates decision fatigue. When you have a set routine, you don't have to waste time and mental energy deciding what to do next. Instead, you can focus on the task at hand and move on to the next item on your list without hesitation. This not only saves time but also massively reduces stress and anxiety.
Another of my favorite benefits of having a routine is that it helps you stay organized. If I’m not organized, I don’t function. So this is the most important reason to create routines for most people. By planning out your day and following a routine, you can make sure that all your tasks are completed on time and that nothing falls through the cracks. This can help reduce the feeling of being overwhelmed, stressed out, or burnout and can help you prioritize your tasks more effectively.
A routine can also help you establish good habits. When you consistently follow a routine, you are essentially training your brain to perform certain tasks at specific times. This can help you build good habits and break bad ones. For example, if you make it a habit to exercise at the same time every day, you're more likely to stick to it and see the benefits over time. The same can be said with time blocking specific recurring tasks in your agency.
Finally, having a routine can help reduce stress (yes!) and increases your confidence. When you know what to expect from your day, you're less likely to feel anxious or stressed about what's coming next. PLUS you’ll likely not over-extend yourself and find yourself if in a burnout state. Instead, you can focus on the present moment and enjoy a sense of calm and control.
