Daily Journals

I think that writing daily journals is difficult. I was just thinking about this today as I went on my daily morning routine. I usually take my morning walks to try to decide what I could write about, and today I decided to write about how difficult it is to write when there is nothing really going on. I've always have problems writing about random topics because they are pretty much endless and it's difficult to select one. Once I'm considering everything I could talk or write about, nothing ever seems interesting enough. I even looked through some of the writing prompts here and on other sites to get and idea, but nada. :(
I once thought about writing a diary or something like that here, but ever since the quarantine, my days are very much alike. I wake up around 5am, but I doze off for a couple of minutes and only get up around 5:45am. Then I brush my teeth, take a shower, drink a glass of lemon water, make my bed and go on my my morning walk. I walk around in the garden until 6:55am, and use the time to stretch my fingers, hands and arms. Since I work with programming, most of my working hours are spent tipping on the keyboard either writing code or sending messages to my coworkers, so it's important to stretch.
Then I eat my breakfast that is usually one mashed banana with a spoonful of oatmeal and cocoa powder. It gives enough energy until I can take a break around 9am to walk for another 15 minutes and to eat some light snack. Then I'm back to the computer to carry on my work until lunchtime. As per company regulations, I enjoy a nice hour out of work. Then, the rest of the afternoon just goes by with more programming and studying until 4pm.
After I finish work I study some kanji and Japanese grammar, and take another shower. Then it's time to prepare dinner with my mom. I like to eat around 6pm because it gives my body plenty of time to start processing the food before I go to bed. After I eat dinner, I sit with my family to watch TV and talk. Then, around 10pm I drink a cup of peppermint or chamomile tea and go to bed.
My days have been more or less like this for the past six months. It's not bad and I don't really crave leaving the house like many people I hear/read complaining online about the ongoing quarantine, but I wish I could add some variety to my routine.
