    Question What's your daily routine?

    Do you even have one?

    No, but I need to make one and stick to it.

    Forever a procrastinator who never follows through...

    Everyday my routine is different, as I do volunteer work most days, but most days I'm doing something different for volunteer work.

    On Tuesdays I volunteer at a food pantry, Thursdays I volunteer at a library, and Fridays at an organic agricultural farm.

    I like voluntary work when able to do it. Might look into again myself. I pretty much go haywire without a routine. Procrastination is a hurdle for myself as well. I find keeping my routine flexible and switching it around a few times helps to keep me focused most of the time. I've been volunteering my time simply by visiting some of the people I have met at my group therapy from time to time. ATM taking my grandson out every 2nd day for a walk, walking with a friend in between that. Keeping my place reasonable tidy and also working on my health in other areas. Meditation is also something I have been focusing on of late. I'm looking into teaching one of my daughters to drive. That's more than enough for me. Discounting my food prep, PC time and of course TV! I usually wake 5am and go to bed 9pm. No more phone or mobile devices in my room. Have backed off my exercise but always looking forward to switching it up when well rested.

    My weekly routine also includes me not doing much most Sundays. I like having Sundays as days that I take it easy and not do much.

    Sounds like a plan to me. Raining here at the moment. (Sunday) I might just tie up some lose ends but in a way that's neither here no there.

    My routine:

    Starting at sleep. Sometimes I get tired around 11pm, but usually I go to bed around midnight-1am.

    I wake up during the night. This was worse even one month ago. But now I seem to connect a good 5-6 hours or if I wake up, I quickly go back to sleep again.

    Wake up around 9am. But I can't seem to pull myself out of bed. I usually get out by around 10:30. Just don't want to face the day again.

    Get out of bed, take a shower, eat breakfast, check news on the internet.

    My anxiety prevents me from relaxing so I go for a walk or a drive.

    I come back and I exercise again, swim or do eliptical.

    I eat a late lunch.

    I do my best to watch tv without feeling overly anxious,

    Go for another drive, do an activity like shopping.

    When night comes I can relax a bit and watch some tv.

    I go to bed again.

    Sometimes winter snow and ice storms interfere with my routine, as I don't want to be driving to a volunteer job when the roads are dangerous.

    But that's one of the down sides to living in snowy and cold Maine.

    Go to school in the morning
    Have lunch
    Go to work at afternoon
    And then in the evening, I have dinner with my family and watch movies, chat with friends

    I got a puppy September last year, and he's helped some with a routine. Up around 6:30, go for a morning walk, take him to the next-door puppy playmates from 10-3, home for another walk. Bed around 9 or 11, depending on husband's work schedule. I would do better if I had a routine for household tasks and health improvement things, but I haven't gotten there yet. Pre-puppy, the depression and anxiety were much worse. That was when I watched TV until the early morning hours and slept much of the day.
