Normal and everyday activities become acts of worship if they are done for the sake of pleasing Allaah. The regular and consistent deeds are the best among these deeds. `Aa`ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) said that Allaah’s Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: "The deeds most loved by Allaah are those done regularly, even if they are small.” [Al-Bukhaari and Muslim] This means that we do not need to do anything spectacular in our day to obtain rewards from Allaah, but we should establish some type of routine that incorporates not only the prayer but also reciting the Quran, Du’aa` (supplication), Thikr (mention of Allaah), and other good deeds. This will increase the serenity, patience, and enthusiasm of the believer.
