Daily routines provide a framework for our lives, helping to reduce stress and anxiety by reducing the number of decisions we need to make each day. Some common wellbeing habits can be a morning walk, a regular meditation session, breathwork, journaling, to do list, gratitude, the gym or a set bedtime, these consistent practices anchor our day and provide a sense of control and stability.

Life is full of challenges and distractions that can easily derail our efforts to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Discipline helps us stay the course, ensuring that we continue to engage in activities that support our mental health, such as exercise, completing our to do list even the mundane tasks, healthy eating, and mindfulness practices.

Discipline also creates resilience, By regularly pushing through challenges and adhering to our commitments, we build the mental toughness needed to handle life's ups and downs.  Resilience is essential for maintaining mental health, as it equips us to cope with stress and recover from setbacks more effectively.

 The Benefits of Consistency and Discipline
