Im 25 years old and I believe in routines and that our self-development is made of daily actions we do to achieve our goals.
In recent weeks i have been changing my routines. I started to:
- practice meditation 4 days a week, 20 mins each session (Tue, Thurs, Sat and Sun)
- working out 4 days a week also - 1 hour each session (Mon, Wed, Frid, Sat)
- i now practice brain training exercises 5 days a week with the help of the website Brain Games & Brain Training - Lumosity which i really recommend (30 mins each session)
With this routine plan i believe ill grow not only physically but also emotionally and mentally.
Im now working at a full time job (8:30 - 17:00) and studying for a Master degree (i have classes at night). I really have to master time management skills in order to follow my plans.
My main issue is: Am i gonna have time to follow the schedule i´ve been planning?
How much time do you daily spend with your routines? Do you do them before going to work in the morning or after work at late afternoon/night?
Hugs and kisses for everybody and i wish you total determination and success in the pursuit of your goals.

Yes, from the schedule you have described it is doable.
(I did a masters degree and a post-grad degree - like a masters but without the thesis - simultaneously while holding down a full-time job - 4 evenings a week classes - so tell me about it )
BE NICE AND KIND TO YOURSELF.
Allow yourself time off now and then, a 'week's holiday' from your routines and goof off.
When I was doing all the evening degrees, I used to rotate one night a week off and on the 5th week, I'd skip the lot. I got very good at copying a classmate's notes during a lecture while simultaneously following the one I was sitting in. (And by the way I never ever ever borrowed someone's notes to take away - that is seriously not fair on them!).
And I always promised myself that if there was something I would rather do instead one evening - some kind of social event say - I would do it and just go back the next week. And this is the biggest promise to yourself - no matter how many weeks you may find you miss, GO BACK. Most I missed was 4 but I was having surgery so that was excused
Oh and to answer your question - I am a great believer in routines as being 'freeing' rather than 'binding'. when you have quite a deeply ingrained routine (or 'habit') then things happen almost on autopilot - which can be good or bad - but when it's the housework it's good! Even if I let things drop for a couple of weeks during intense work periods or whatever, it only takes a couple of days for the routine to begin to flow again when I get back on it.

Schedules are great and they can be changed. Mine are quite seasonal since during the winter months, I'm on the ski slopes a few days per week and this shifts a lot of my other activities around.
Nobody can say that you schedule is feasible for you except yourself. You just have to be realistic and try it out. Be ready to modify as needed.
Good luck to you.

Wow - what a great plan you've got in place to improve yourself in several areas! You're really trying to tackle a lot of things at once. As others have said, allow yourself some margin - whether that is time to relax and recharge -or whether it is an occasional break from the plan.
I hope you're keeping a journal of some kind so you can have a good gauge of your progress as you grow in these areas. I'll be cheering for you!
