This made me chuckle — it is so true. Routines are not a magic potion if you have a crazy monkey bouncing all around inside your head. If I hear ‘Just try ….’ one more time from well-meaning friends I might just explode.
They are great for some people but not for everyone. We have to find our own rhythm and what works for us. Read about new things, try them, but if they don’t work for you don’t worry about it. It does not make you a failure.
