How and Why Structure Matters in Life

Daily life with or without structure…?

I believe if you just watch TV you are wasting your life.

If it overtakes your day and night then it’s not good for you.

What are you doing with your life?

This is to me throwing it away. If you are watching TV all the time you don’t eat well either. You’ll be eating something that’s not super healthy for you.

Everything we knew before the virus is gone and now our lives are different.

Everyone keeps on telling me how important it is to have a routine. A routine in which people can thrive. Everyone needs some kind of structure. Why? Why cannot we not live in chaos and thrive? Some do. Some need structure.

The importance of structure

It gives us a framework within which we can work, create, play and do everything. We have a day in which we can work and do all the serious stuff. For example, earn money and create businesses. Night time is for sleeping. Parties no longer… The structure gives us points of reference. We can see from where we started to when we finished something.

One can build a structure very easily in life.

If you are a Muslim, for example, you pray five times a day. That’s an amazing structure. It gives you x amount of hours from one prayer to the next. It has given you already an amazing umbrella from where you can create your work. People have taken care of the spiritual side as well. It gives them peace and keeps them calm.
