Getting into a routine is a way of life, and let’s us know when and how to plan our schedules. A routine provides stability that most of us need, but what about when it just becomes a rut?
New research from Groupon reveals that 44% of women feel like they’re stuck in rut and 22% strongly agree that they do the same things day-to-day and week-to-week.
But what effect does this have on us?
34% of women say that a lack of confidence was one of the reasons that they aren’t trying new things.
Seven Suphi, Life Coach and Behavioural Change Specialist says:
“New experiences mean new challenges which mean you cannot operate on autopilot, you have to actively think and actively experience life. That active living means you are exercising your brain, your body and enhancing your life experience, helping you have a healthier happier more enriched life. Even the latest research in neuroscience has shown, in some instances, that more external new fun activity = more internal brain activity = bigger brain. That old expression ‘use it or lose it’ is actually true!”
