Routine. It sounds so… bleah. Bo-ring.

But if you break the routine for too long, what happens?

At some level, it can be good. After all, staying in a rut can be hard on us mentally and physically. If you do the same workout over and over, every day, you will never make improvement. (Change that routine!)

Drastic changes, though? The body ends up saying… “huh?” and can get all in a tizzy.

I must say that it’s great to not constantly be planning our next move. Even when “taking a break” in the room, looking up where we’re having dinner tonight (the optimizing of great food with lowest possible cost) as well as our plans for the next day (ah, ain’t the internet grand? Endless opportunities for research–possibly time-wasting–as you click from page to page reading reviews on this and that attraction…)

Less meat, more vegetables. Less soft and springy beds. Fewer leaky showers that spray all over the floors.

Less adventure, for sure. But it’s also possible to create adventure in one’s own hometown… (you just have to give yourself permission, and to find that adventure)

Anyway, as my body is going through the creaks and groans of the first few hard workouts back… it’s nice to be back to my old routine for a while. I love to travel and see new things, but I love my home base.
