At the height of the COVID-19 quarantines, people were always talking about how hard it was to keep their days of the week straight, since it seemed like every day was EXACTLY the same.
In a new survey, 63% of people say they “frequently” have to ask what day it is, with 51% saying it’s because their days are so similar.
81% say their days have become more repetitive during the last 18 months.
So there is still some carryover from the quarantine, not everyone is back to work at an office, and the ongoing precautions make it harder to be spontaneous.
But it’s not specific to being shut inside.
20% of people admit regularly drifting through life without giving any thought to what they’re actually doing.
54% would be happy to experience the same day over and over, just like in the movie “Groundhog Day”, if it was their perfect day.
Some of the daily routines that people say they do on autopilot include: Eating, showering, getting dressed, cooking, cleaning, and going for a walk.
