Establishing healthy daily routines is not only part of addiction treatment, but it is a hallmark of highly productive people as well. Creating a routing while living in sober living homes or during outpatient treatment can make your recovery and your life more productive and satisfying.

Many famously productive and inventive people, including Thomas Edison, John Grisham, and Stephen King, share the trait of following strict daily routines.1 The dedication to reaching goals informs this behavior, due to the productivity-enhancing benefits of routines designed to increase what one can accomplish each day.

Why Are Daily Routines So Important to Productivity?

The structure and routine found in sober living programs and facilities encourage daily progress, positive thinking, and commitment to the goals of remaining sober and establishing a new healthier way of living. By creating your own established routines as you leave treatment, you take this new skill to a new level, using what you have learned to teach yourself to improve all areas of your life.
