Why You Should Change Your Routine One Habit at a Time?

Have you ever tried to change your daily routine, but quickly get overwhelmed and just
give up completely? This isn’t because you can’t make changes, but because you try to
change too much, too quickly. You can’t focus your mind on a dozen things at once –
which is why it never seems to work out. Instead, you need to change just one habit at a

– You Might Experience Burnout if You do Too Much

The last thing you want to do is make your life harder instead of easier when you are
trying to establish a new daily routine. That is exactly what is going to happen if you
keep piling on a bunch of new habits to start at once. When you face burnout, not only
do your habits not stick around and your routine isn’t changed, but you might even
regress and make your life even more difficult.

– It’s Almost Impossible to Form Multiple Habits at Once

Have you ever tried to make big changes in your life, and instead of changing just one
thing, tried 3, 5, or 10 at once? More than likely, it just wasn’t possible. Your brain can
only handle so much, and when you try to change all the habits at once, what tends to
happen is you can’t figure out where to focus your attention. Your thoughts go in a
million different directions, and the habits don’t stick.

– You Need to Focus on the Process for Each New Habit

Another reason it helps to change just one habit at a time is because it requires focus,
tracking, and making sure this is a good habit for you. How do you know if it is helping
or hurting your life, if you start 5 new things at the same time? This makes it impossible
to see if the benefits or drawbacks of any habit are affecting you, since you tried to
change too much, too quickly.

– A Routine is Built Up Over Time

Daily routines are great for changing your life, becoming happier and more productive,
and reaching your goals, but it is not a fast process. Take your time when changing your
routine, starting with changing just one habit, getting used to it, then moving on to the
next. If you want a new morning routine, don’t change everything at once – pick the
most important, such as waking up early to do yoga, then once you have established
your yoga routine, start adding in other aspects, like writing in a journal.

As you can see, changing your routine is not easy. Rather if you like to do or add various things to your schedule. The important thing is to make a list and add each habit one by one. And so, you will be able to have a defined schedule for your daily routine.

See you soon,

  1. What a great post. And coincidentally I watched a podcast this morning where the guest said ‘It’s better to be consistently good than inconsistently great.’
    There’s no point of knocking everything out of the park if you’re only going to maintain it for a week or two. Anyway, thanks for this post!
