As soon as I'm a terrible procrastinator (see Fact 11) I do hate routines. You know, in Russian the word "рутина" [ru-'ti-na] has mostly negative meaning as something helplessly boring, standard and narrow-minded. A beaten path and mundanity. We often say "gray routine", "boring routine", "escape from routine".
English is more kind to this word. For English-speaking people a routine is a just sequence of actions, something regular, everyday, often - important. For example, sleeping, breathing and taking food are actually routines ;)
This year I gave myself a resolution to follow routines.
As having rest ;) Do yoga (yes, you, lazy woman, do yoga today!).
Take time to watch a good film. To watch means not to listen to it while working as it usually happens.
I also want make stitching as a daily creative routine.
And to discover new amazing artists on Etsy.
Take pictures and work on them daily to improve my poor photography skills.
To blog ;) If not daily, then weekly at least.
I want my routines to be beautiful, a splash of color, a mouthfeel delight, a emotional bomb. May be it's too much, but still I'm absolutely unwilling to do boring things from day to day and complain about it.
