Those of you who have brought up children or trained puppies, will be fully aware of the need for routine and set boundaries. And so, it is, our bodies and mind function best when we follow a schedule that is relatively consistent and regular. But do these habits always help?
If you are looking to make changes in your lifestyle or looking to get the optimum performance, it becomes even more important to establish and follow a routine. For instance, getting dramatically different amounts of sleep from night to night or waking up at different times is confusing for your system. If you can follow a consistent and predictable sleep routine and regular meal times and be consistent with your exercise, you will give yourself a better chance at improving your quality of life.
