We all run routines.
Routines are the automatic processes that, through practice and habitualization, we don’t have to think about anymore. From chewing food to driving, routines allow us to autopilot activities so we can free up brainpower to do more important things.
But are all of your routines good routines? It turns out that there are bad habits – and we all know which ones we have – and there are negative thought patterns too. When the stories we tell ourselves about why we can’t, why we shouldn’t, why we don’t deserve and why we don’t belong run automatically AND with our permission, they have a severe limiting effect on the quality of our lives.
