Why it works

Following a generic routine allows your brain to put itself on autopilot mode. It stops thinking outside the box and doesn’t function as well when it has to think about other things.Your brain always changes based on the environment it is constantly put in. The term for this is Neuroplasticity - the brain's natural ability to adapt or grow when exposed to new things. When you alter your routine you allow the brain to keep establishing new connections and continue to grow in new ways.
