What’s the routine of people in your country?
As far as I know, most people in China work 9-5 jobs. So basically they’re busy during most of the day, but they have evenings and weekends off to spend at home. If they’re students like me, their routine is based around school. They go to classes during the day and then study at night. People usually only break their routine for vacations or holidays, which usually come around summer or winter.
Some people don’t have a daily routine. Is it good?
Honestly, that sounds really relaxing. But I believe that having a daily routine is important. It keeps you on track and prevents wasting time on meaningless things. I think that a routine can help people from falling into a slump. It’s not good to just sit around or to constantly change what you’re doing from day to day. Having a set routine to follow can definitely help you be productive and make the most of a day.
Is it important for children to have a daily routine? Why?
Yes, it’s really important for children to have a set routine. For one, it gives them a sense of order. By having a schedule to follow, kids can feel like things are in control. This will help them have less stress and anxiety. Another advantage is that it teaches them how important it is to manage time well. That’s a skill that’ll really help them out in the long run. In general, people with good time management are usually more productive at work as well.
Should daily routine on holidays be the same as usual?
Well, if you’re on holiday, there’s no need to follow your usual daily routine. One of the best things about holidays is that they’re a break from routine. It gives you the chance to shake things up, but not for so long that you become out of touch with your routine altogether. Honestly, I think it’s important to take a break, because otherwise you can get sick and tired of the same old thing and feel really bored with your life.
Which kinds of jobs need a routine? Which kinds of jobs don’t need a routine? Why?
Off the top of my head, manufacturing jobs require a routine. You have to do things in a very specific order in factories and other places like that, so it’s safe to say things are pretty routine in those kinds of occupations. But jobs that involve service, whether it’s sales or designing, don’t have the same kind of routines. You can be more flexible in those types of jobs since customers’ demands change over time. Besides, I believe jobs that involve research also don’t need a routine because people who need to do that have to be creative and can’t be limited by a fixed schedule.
