Routine in my house is a must. There are days when I want something other than the same old routine. I want to get up on a whim and just ride to the water or somewhere other than behind these walls….
Maintaining a healthy routine can be an essential aspect of daily living if you’re on the autistic spectrum. It can lead to stability and make life more bearable, but also build big walls that can limit someone’s ability to cope. Many people don’t understand why it can be so important to those with autism, what can be involved, how it interacts with other aspects of autism or the repercussions of breaking a routine. I can only speak for myself on this matter, so please remember all my opinions are my own and based on how I cope day to day.
