Disrupted Routines


Many people have had their regular routines disrupted over the past few weeks.


You're probably one of them.


Maybe you're working from home for the first time ever because your office decided social-distancing was a smart idea.


Maybe you've had to find new ways to be physically active because your gym had to close.


Or maybe you've had to learn how to cook something new because your usual staples are out of stock at the grocery store.


If you don't like change, you've likely had a very difficult few weeks.


But there's an obvious upside to all of this: you're being forced to adapt.


And perhaps you'll discover you can work just as effectively from home as you can from the office... and your office will discover that a work-from-home policy isn't such a bad idea after all.


Perhaps you'll discover how much you love your gym -- they do say, "absence makes the heart grow fonder", after all -- and return with a renewed commitment to your health. Conversely, maybe you'll discover you didn't miss it nearly as much as you thought you would, and that those walks you took turned out to be something you enjoyed much more.


Perhaps those new recipes turned out amazing, and now you'll put them into the regular rotation.


There is a definite benefit to disrupting your routines every so often.


But most people won't do it until they're forced to do so.


Well... now you've probably been forced to do so.


Take full advantage of it.
