Hey, hey, and welcome back. This is yet another episode, the Routine and Things podcast. I am your host, Ashley Brown. I am so happy that you are here with me again today. If this is your first time listening, though, I want to say welcome girl. How are you? How are you doing? Today is gonna be a really short episode, it's another routines redefined episode where I am answering the question of, do daily routines strengthen your consistency? I know that when many people think about routines, they think about doing something on a daily basis. Right? That is a word that is thrown out there is consistency means daily or routine means daily. And I'm here to tell you no, that is not the truth. The way that I like to describe a routine is as an intentional flow of actions done consistently. That is how I like to describe a routine and consistently does not mean daily. So do daily routines, strengthen your consistency? The answer to this is no, not necessarily. Because when we think about consistency, just because you do something daily, does not mean you are more consistent than someone who does that same thing weekly. Both of you are consistent. You're just consistent in different ways. Okay, does that make sense?

So you can do something daily, and definitely be consistent. You can do something weekly, and definitely be consistent. So consistency isn't so much of the frequency of you doing that thing. It's more so are you doing that thing in the same way over time. So when you think about your routines it's really important for you to think about, are you doing your routine in the same way over time?That is what consistency is. So whether you're doing your routine daily, whether you're doing your routine, weekly, whether you're doing your routine monthly. If you're doing that same routine in the same way over time, this means that you are consistent. When you do daily routines, you are being consistent, but it doesn't strengthen your consistency. And yes, you can adjust to a new routine quicker when you are doing it every day. That is the truth. You can adjust quicker when you are doing that same thing in the same way every single day, of course, but that does not mean you have to it's really your choice. Because some people feel as if oh, maybe I need to do this every day. No.

Like, for example, I do not do my morning routine every single day. I don't even do my bedtime routine every single day. I do my bedtime routine it's anywhere between four to five times a week, I'll do my bedtime routine. That I'm still consistent, though. Right? I am still consistent with that routine, although I'm doing it four to five times a week, because I'm doing it the same way over time. So remember this as you move forward with your routines that you have routines do not need to be daily, they can be weekly, they can be monthly. But are you doing that routine the same way over time?And I want you to more so focused on doing the routine versus focusing on the frequency that you do the routine. So that answers the questions. No, daily routines do not, strengthen your consistency. If you are doing daily routines and you have been maintaining that routine, kudos to you. I am so happy and proud of you and keep going and keep going.
