Let me first point out that I’m not arguing for a routine life. This isn’t about settling for spending the rest of your days without variability. Going Primal should never mean checking your sense of adventure or love of novelty at the door. If anything, it calls for us to grow our lives beyond the socially drawn scope of all things work, big commute, and must-see T.V. It encourages us to branch out of our comfort zones and conventional limits. Intermittent euphoria, flow, thrill, abundance, and even a certain amount of risk boost the heights of Primal vitality. As success story after success story show, people often discover they’ve not only invested in health, but learned to expand their horizons. Life takes on greater dimension as they venture into new activities, leave behind old identities, and make unimagined changes for the better. All that change and newness is good. But today I want to put in a good word for routine as a critical tool, particularly for certain health goals.
