Enhance your purchase
This is not a "How to."
There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to routine. Dr. Iscovich shares his original study of routine―learn through his observations how routine can improve longevity, performance, and adaptability. You will be better equipped to construct a routine that works best for you!
Conventional wisdom suggests that the best way to navigate our noisy new world is to accept change. Open up to novelty. Go with the flow. Live in the moment. Embrace the relentless pelting of content minute by minute. But routine experts Angel Iscovich, MD, Joe Garner, and Michael Ashley are here to say that’s a bad idea. Humans don’t just benefit from structure; they require it.
Years of observation and practice led to their breakthrough concept of routineology, the key to optimize your life and the cure for crisis. Routineology’s fundamental prescriptive is to look inside and live your life in a “time bubble” to find purpose, meaning, and joy. Offering insights from top performers and stories of triumph over adversity, this book demonstrates that routine isn’t just a good idea―it’s imperative for surviving and thriving today.
Live a life of deeper meaning and navigate toward a better world with The Art of Routine.

Angel introduces the concept of Routineology which reminds us how important routine is in our lives. From womb to tomb we are governed by biochronological factors. Routine creates stability, reduces stress, and less stress ultimately promotes better health. He provides fascinating data driven examples illustrating a correlation between higher life expectancy and daily routines.
Throughout the book Angel gives us examples through well-known individuals such as the Rolling Stones and Jeff Gordon how routine contributes to thriving in life. He even gives an example of a young pilot who used routine to survive during the Vietnam War as a POW in a prisoner camp for over five years.
Angel leaves you with the troubling thought about the impact of AI in our lives and how it can “help” with our daily routines. Although AI is a powerful tool that helps us make decisions, the author points out that it can slowly creep into our lives deteriorating our critical thinking skills. He reminds us that we learn from our failures. When we allow AI to remove failure, we miss our chance to learn. Through learning, we advance as a people.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking at establishing or reestablishing their purpose and meaning in life!
