Routines are important but they don’t have to rule your day. When you have less, you can focus more on the people in your life and be more flexible rather than focusing on your stuff and keeping it tidy. So today, I decided to speak about my own routine (or lack thereof) and the reason behind why I don’t have a lot of routines and take things day by day.
What works best for you?
Key Takeaways to Tune In For
- [02:34] Why my family does not have a day to day routine
