Happy New Year Arrae family! The confetti’s settled, the Christmas decor is tucked away, and we’ve turned the page of our calendars to 2024. The new year equals new opportunities, and it’s the perfect time to level up your self-care and well-being.
So while you’re buzzing with goals and fresh planners, let’s talk about the real MVP that will revolutionize your wellness this year: a daily routine that leads to a healthier, happier you.
Why Routine Matters
Now, we get it; the word ‘routine’ might sound a little boring. But adding structure to your everyday life is like investing in the best version of yourself. It’s those consistent baby steps that lead to personal growth and lasting habits.
Daily routines have been shown to enhance your well-being and productivity over time, with multiple health benefits like:
Enhanced Stress Management: Studies show that sticking to a routine can help reduce anxiety by providing a predictable and controlled structure to your day, helping you to feel more in control.
Improved Sleep Patterns: With a solid routine, you’re more likely to develop a consistent sleep schedule. This helps to promote quality sleep and regulates your body’s natural sleep-wake cycle.
Better Time Management: A structured schedule allows you to manage your time better, allowing you to pencil in more activities you love, as well as more down time.
Boosted Energy Levels: With a steady routine, your body can better regulate energy levels since you’re more likely to avoid the highs and lows that come with inconsistent schedules.
Improved Mental Health: Routines can give a sense of purpose and accomplishment, and research suggests that this can lead to improved self-confidence and mood.
Routine vs. Habits: What’s the Difference?
Consistency is key when it comes to creating a new routine. It takes time, and the process looks different for everyone. If you’re a regular here at our blog, then you might have read our last post that was all about building lasting wellness habits. And while habits and routines are pretty similar, they’re not exactly one and the same.
Habits are things you do automatically, like washing your hands after using the restroom. They’re linked to certain cues that trigger the habit. Routines, on the other hand, don’t depend on a cue. But with consistency and repetition, healthy habits can form from a day-to-day routine.
So, routines are a little different than habits, and lucky for us, they aren’t as nitty-gritty to form. When it comes to building a steady routine, it's less about being perfect and more about doing what works best for you and your overarching goals.
Building a Routine
Odds are you already have some kind of routine in your life. But maybe you want to pencil in more ‘me time’ this year. Or, maybe you’ve made a list of resolutions to take your health and happiness off the back burner.
Whatever your goals are, here five hot-tips on how to turn those aspirations into your new norm:
Start With What You Love: Think of some activities or things you love that make you feel good about yourself after doing them. Love feeling more energized in the morning? Consider adding a morning HGW before you start your work day. Feel like you sleep x10 better after a mediation session? Add some mindfulness minutes to your daily calendar.
Plan It Out: Write down what your current routine looks like, and then figure out what youwant your everyday routine to look like. Make a plan on how and when to incorporate the things you want.
Make It Manageable: Overcomplicating your routine can make it feel like a chore. Start with small, healthy changes and build from there.
Stay Flexible: Like we said, building a routine for a better you doesn’t have to be perfect. Life can get hectic, and sometimes not everyday looks the same. It’s okay to move things around as needed.
Keep Things Fun: After a while, the same old routine can get a little mundane. A healthy routine doesn’t mean you have to do the same thing every single day. Switch up your workouts. Try out a new balanced recipe each week. Mix things up to keep things exciting!
Arrae’s Role in Your Daily Routine
Another cherry on top? Developing a routine means you’re more likely to take your meds and supplements more consistently. Not only is this a major perk for your health and well-being, it’s also essential for their effectiveness so you can reap all the rewards.
That’s why we offer all of our Arrae products on a subscription basis! While all of our products offer quick relief, each one is designed to work best over time to foster a healthier you. And since we’re all about digestive health, a happier gut, too;)
Plus, we get it. Sticking to a routine takes hard work, dedication, diligence, all the things. And little setbacks (like running out of your supplements) can make it hard to stick to. With an Arrae subscription, you’ll get all of your desired products delivered straight to your doorstep, no matter what. No fuss, no running out. With a subscription, it’s one less thing on your to-do list – because we’ve got you covered!
