Rerouting Routine: from Merely Surviving to Vitally Thriving

“The habits you created to survive will no longer serve you when it’s time to thrive. Get out of survival mode. New habits, new life.” ~ Ebonee Davis

Here’s the thing: Human beings need routine. We need systems. We need discipline. The healthier the better. But we also need a way to update the way we do things so as not to get stuck in a rut. This especially applies to areas where we need to be creative, progressive and innovative.

We need a way to unmold the mold and then remold it into a more imaginative mold that is perpetually malleable rather than rigid and hardened by monotony. This is tricky, because there is the tendency to get comfortable and complacent in our habits.

Alas, even healthy habits that once got us through tough times can become a comfortable prison if we’re not careful. As James Russel Lowell said, “Time makes ancient good uncouth.”

To go from merely surviving life to vitally thriving in life, we need a way to reroute routine, to un-habit our old habits and then re-habit with updated habits. Health is a benchmark, as always. But health only gets us as far as a solid foundation that’s in cosmic alignment with Universal Law. It doesn’t get us outside the box, the comfort zone, or the mental paradigm.
