In today’s fast-paced world, you may often find yourself struggling to keep up with the demands of your daily life. The pressure to achieve success and maintain a work-life balance can leave you feeling overwhelmed and stressed.

In such a scenario, the idea of a structured life can seem appealing. But is it truly the key to happiness?

As a holistic coach and a professional in senior corporate and entrepreneurial positions with more than 25 years of experience, I believe that living in harmony with nature and being is more important than struggling against life.


The Benefits of Structure

The benefits of living a structured life are numerous and can lead to increased productivity, reduced stress, and greater overall happiness.

Research has shown that if you follow a set daily routine, you are more likely to achieve your goals and experience a sense of accomplishment.

Additionally, structure can help to reduce feelings of overwhelm and anxiety by providing a sense of control and predictability.

From personal experience, I have found that incorporating structure into my daily routine has allowed me to focus on my priorities and achieve a greater sense of balance in my life.

Overall, I believe that embracing structure can be a powerful tool for personal growth and well-being.


The Downside of Struggle

Structure and routine can indeed bring a sense of stability and order to your life. However, when you become too rigid in your approach and resist change or the natural ebb and flow of life, you may find yourself struggling unnecessarily.

This constant struggle can take a toll on your mental and physical health, leading to exhaustion and burnout. You may also start to feel disconnected from the world around you, as you become so focused on controlling every aspect of your life.

One example of this can be seen in the character of Monica from the iconic TV show Friends, who is obsessed with keeping her apartment clean and organized to the point of exhaustion.

While structure can be beneficial, it is important to also allow for flexibility and adaptability to live a truly happy and fulfilling life.

Finding Harmony

Finding harmony in life can be a challenging task, especially if you are constantly striving to maintain a structured routine. Instead of struggling against the natural flow of life, it is important to take a step back and connect with the world around you.

One way to do this is by cultivating mindfulness and awareness. This can involve practicing meditation or taking time to journal your thoughts and feelings.

By doing so, you may begin to notice patterns in your behavior and thought processes, which can help you to make positive changes in your life.

Ultimately, by harmonizing with nature and being, rather than fighting against them, you can create a sense of peace and contentment in your day-to-day life.


The Importance of Consistency

One of the essential aspects of a structured life is consistency. Consistency is the key to achieving success in any area of life.

By committing to routines and habits, you can create a framework for your day-to-day activities that will help you stay on track and make progress towards your goals.

Discipline and consistency work hand in hand to establish a sense of direction and purpose in our lives.

To establish a daily routine, start by identifying your priorities, and then create a schedule that allows you to work towards those priorities. Don’t forget to include time for self-care and relaxation.

Remember, consistency is not about perfection but about progress. So, celebrate your accomplishments along the way and keep moving forward.


Overcoming Resistance

As a holistic coach, I have worked with numerous clients who struggle with the belief that “a structured life is a happy life”. While having a routine and structure is important, it can be challenging to maintain it.

One of the common challenges that people face when trying to live a structured life is resistance. It can be resistance to change, to new routines, or even to the idea of structure itself. However, it is possible to overcome resistance and stay motivated.

One way to do this is to focus on the benefits of living a structured life. This could include increased productivity, better time management, and reduced stress levels. Another strategy is to break down the structure into smaller, achievable goals.

Celebrating each small win can help maintain motivation and momentum. By acknowledging the challenges and implementing strategies to overcome resistance, you can successfully live a structured life and reap the benefits that come with it.
