It’s so easy to get into a rut yet difficult to get out. A rut is a regular habit, pattern, or expectation. There is a certain degree of comfort associated with being in a rut. It is consistent, familiar, and safe. We can fall into a rut unintentionally without realizing it.

There are those who are happy and satisfied with a regular, dependable pattern. If you are happy with your circumstances — great. But if you want to break out of a routine, this article is for you.
