It is suggested the present restrictions will last until March. If this is the case, it seems essential for those who desire to continue to thrive setting a daily routine is an idea worthy of consideration. Nothing can beat setting small daily and routine tasks: by fulfilling personal obligations, the inner-being continues to have a purpose.

A daily routine is simple to work out, and one gains tremendous rewards when objectives are attainable and straightforward. Do not go over the top and think you’ll have to occupy eight hours each day with activities. A three-hour regime will have substantial well-being rewards.

Here are some ideas for you to consider:

When we repeatedly follow a routine, it will become a habit. Making the aspects of the routine positive and worthwhile the felling of accomplishment strengthens focus, willpower and confidence.

Without a routine or structure to daily life, it is easy to become despondent and worry about the future. A negative attitude will affect every aspect of one’s life.

Even when we consider routines, we establish priorities and discover what is essential and what is not.

By taking the time to discover the aspects of life which work well or can be achieved, you are spurred on to invest more time and learning into life.

Remember, do not overthink the idea. Building the daily routine takes time and worth every minute invested.

The first hour of the day:

Do not pick up your phone and ‘see what’s happening’ – the second you do this, you’ll be taken away from the objective of fulfilling goals.

Wide awake? Now close your eyes and take five minutes to think about achieving goals, taking small steps to success. Pledge you’ll not be distracted from each task started today. And once you agree to this commitment start the day.

Before beginning the daily routine program, there is a need to work through the ideas, projects or commitments which are useful. Some people find this difficult: how often do you ask ‘what exactly is useful to me?’ So, take some time and think about anything useful. For example, keeping one’s home tidy is beneficial to clear thinking ‘a tidy mind is a clear mind’ therefore valuable for you. Keeping to a budget may seem tightfisted: however, being without debt prevents worry and is therefore useful. The premise is, if one considers dining anything if it is valuable or beneficial, the idea can go onto the list. Just thinking about practical actions for long enough can make them come into reality. Let’s face it; most of us have plenty of time on our hands at this moment. So this exercise is worth experimenting with: although it is advisable to keep the list short, a maximum of five ‘useful acts’ is acceptable. And in time you can change the priorities as the idea develops.

A list or timetable is useful because it ensures the commitment is fulfilled. And making the writing of the beneficial plan a daily exercise is a way of ensuring success. So make yourself accountable to yourself. Remember to keep the list attainable, and you’ll be responsible for your actions: so the list should be short: short lists are achievable and rewarding.

Do you carry a notebook? Well if you do not, think about having a post-it notebook. The small size is perfect for little or short lists and the ‘to do, or good acts’ list can be stuck onto the fridge or computer screen or on the back of your phone. Keep the list where you can refer to it and draw a line through the tasks accomplished. And keep each part of the plan attainable in 30 minutes. A five-point list takes only two and a half hours each day. which is not much of a commitment to a regime which can be the difference between having an incredible feeling of well-being or feeling down or depressed.

A sample list:

Shower – Clean clothes
Healthy breakfast
A 30-minute walk and 30-minute rest
Tidy one room
Read for 30 minutes

an alternative list

Shower – Clean clothes
Eat healthy food for the whole day.
Tidy one room
A 30-minute walk and 30-minute rest
Meditate for 15 minutes


Think about using the internet to your advantage. By searching the net, there is nothing you cannot learn to do with reasonable proficiency. YouTube is a source of thousands of mediations, well-being tricks, healthy food recipes, inspirational videos. Use the search well-being or living to a daily routine and spend an hour rebuilding your life. I suggest an hour opening your mind to well-being suggestions and information is far better than an hour on FaceBook being told you are an idiot for not conforming to another person’s fear of microchips. Use your time wisely.

This article only provides the most basic ideas for you to begin to enjoy a daily structure during these difficult times. Many advanced techniques can have a phenomenal and positive impact on how we navigate and enjoy life. However, these ideas take dedication and effort. Today’s consideration is: a shortlist of attainable objectives can make a real difference to one’s well-being. With no specific parameters, the list becomes an accurate indicator of attainment. And it is the attainment or achieving of small goals which can turn the mundane into an extraordinary and fulfilling life.

Many other ‘positive actions’ can be added to the list, and the list does not have to be the same each day. You could choose to get up, eat and complete daily chores and shower before a midday meal. Mix up the list and find a routine which works well and makes you feel comfortable. You may have followed one pattern for years; never has there been a better time to play around with your ‘set ways’ a change can make all the positive difference.

Here is the list I wrote last night:

Get up – Make Coffee
Write 1000 word article titled ‘Daily Routine.’
Get dressed – Walk for 30 minutes.
Healthy breakfast

All accomplished: I feel great! And it’s only 11:15
