..Keep Calm and Be Zen..

I love routines. I am a creature of routine. I like to "go with the flow" once in bazillion years but that's really not my thing. I just love to plan my days well in advance. It all suits me very fine. My rhythm is not affected in anyway. It could also be because on any given day I have 100 tasks on my "To-Do" list and yes I know that's not feasible. I am wired that way and I have made my peace with that.
Being easy, peasy breezy does not suit my personality type. Sitting at home and doing nothing is a big part of my routine esp during the weekends. I think that's mainly because I never have time during the weekdays. I love plans even if that involves doing nothing.

Talking about routines, I have a new routine these days. I wake up early (really) and then cook my meal in the kitchen with music in the background. I am at my work desk by 8:00 am ( It helps to stay close to work). This is way different from my earlier routine. Waking up at 8:00 was usual back then. I used to rush to work sometimes without any breakfast. I was always running from one end to the other. To get to work. To get back from work. To go to the gym. To come back from the gym. To cook and to generally get my life sorted.

Life feels different now. I feel that I am more in control of my days now. Another thing that I really enjoy these days is eating breakfast at my desk. It might sound a little funny but really it feels so peaceful. I have the whole floor to myself. I get my green tea, eat my breakfast and read my emails. I make my own "little" plan in my head to get me through the day.  

I think we all need that window of time in a day to just sit, moan, sulk, rejoice, retrospect and be alone with our thoughts. It helps to prepare ourselves for the day. I am not sure for how long I will carry on with this routine but for now I am happy. I have this zen like calm all over me these days. I just hope it continues..
