“The secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine.” – Mike Murdock
It’s Monday Motivation on Daily Ramblings. This quote is appropriate for today! I am a stickler for a daily routine or daily rituals. I arrived upon this current state by reading through a lot of the habits literature and came to the realization that our daily routines are merely a collection of habits.
Some of my daily habits are:
Reading multiple books (a few pages up to a chapter depending on length)
Writing (Blog Posting and Book Writing)
- Exercise (currently two cardio sessions each day with weight lifting Mon-Fri)
- Spiritual Practices (Dream Journaling, Daily Reflection, Reading Spiritual Works)
- Daily Learning (Currently a Course on the US Presidents, Course on Happiness and Well Being offered by Yale on Coursera, and a Nonfiction Book Writing Course on Udemy)
- Social Media and Connection (stay in touch with family, friends, and interact with people at the coffee shops, gymnasiums, and libraries I frequent)
This week’s exercise routine:
2 cardio sessions 35 minutes each day (Monday – Sunday)
Weight Lifting: Monday (Quadriceps, Lower Abs, and Calves); Tuesday (Chest and Shoulders); Wednesday (Arms); Thursday (Hamstrings, Lower Back, Upper Abs, and Calves); and Friday (Upper Back)
I find these rituals to be extremely productive and fruitful.
I hope each of you has a tremendous week!
Until next time…
