Adult - Do we need a daily timetable?

I used to view having a routine as being boring, rigid, and stifling, and I know that many people share this view. They live their lives in a capricious and whimsical manner, believing that it frees them somehow. On the contrary, I have learned that designing and adhering to a personal daily routine is the path to freedom, productivity, happiness, and fulfilling our true potential. Here is why all of us would be better off with a set routine:
1. Makes Us More Efficient
2. Reduces Our Need to Plan
3. Creates Structure in Our Lives
4. Saves Time, Our Most Valuable Resource
5. Instills Good Habits
6. Breaks Bad Habits
7. Helps Us Become More Proficient
8. Helps Us Get the Most Important Tasks Done
9. Prioritization
10. Reduces the Need for Determination and Willpower
11. Reduces Procrastination
12. Builds Momentum
13. Builds Self Confidence
14. Saves Us Money
15. Helps Reduce Stress and Facilitate Relaxation
16. Frees Up Our Time
17. Helps Us Achieve Our Goals
18. Keeping Track of Our Success

I think that it's hard to do a routine if you have mh problems. For me the thought of a routine is overwhelming sometimes.

I don't have a timetable, but I do have things to do every day: praying, tea with family, dinner with family. I fit other things between those.

I think elements of routine are definitely important, whether that's getting up at the same time, having a shower at regular intervals, meeting a friend once a week. But planning your day to the nth degree is way too much pressure and doesn't allow for creativity and curiosity imo.

Sometimes it's good to break routine. Have a different breakfast, walk a different way home, even sit in a different seat in the living room (I bet I'm not the only one with a spot they always sit in!)

If this is a legit post, routines are REALLY important for me. They actually help me be less overwhelmed.

If this is some type of spam thing, that's just odd.

You can't always keep it separate.
This is happening, this is part of you.

Chrikey I couldnt plan absolutely everything I did in a timetable, yes I have Uni timetable I have to stick to but really every minute of day justified like in care plans etc and patient monitoring

Ella had a piss at 11:03 and she drank a glass of water at 11:07 precisely

Neither do I really care if asleep by 11pm or later. So long as my sleep is sufficient with val I take

Have you ever confused a dream with life? Or stolen something when you have the cash? Have you ever been blue? Or thought your train moving while sitting still? Maybe I was just crazy. Maybe it was the 60's. Or maybe I was just a girl... interrupted.
I know what it's like to want to die. How it hurts to smile. How you try to fit in but you can't. How you hurt yourself on the outside to try to kill the thing on the inside. I tried groups, didn't work out just made my depression a lot worse.
