Episode 6: Why Should You Have a Routine?
About The Episode
Since self-improvement is nothing without mentioning routines, we decided to pick the question as well.
However, routines are a broad stroke, if nothing else. So, we decided to split the episode into two parts: the why and the how.
This is the why of routines, and here we talk about our experiences with routines, how they’ve built us up, how they’ve helped us, and so on.
In the episode, we touch upon how routines are everything that remains when a crisis arrives, how we’re always in a routine, and other ideas we feel are worth hearing at least once.
In the next episode, we’ll discuss how we build routines.
