Some people sleep with their phones under their pillows and check Twitter the moment they rise. Some people leave their phones on airplane mode in a separate room until 9:00 a.m.

Some people eat breakfast by 8:00 a.m. Some people forget to eat until midday.

Whether your schedule is printed on a color-coded flowchart or you left your planner on the bus in 1997, the first step to creating the routine you want (Ayurveda’s dinacharya) is to recognize that you already have one. Whether or not your routine gets you where you’re dreaming of going is the second step.
