Pattern = (1) a form or model proposed for imitation: ‘The American constitution has provided a pattern for many republics.’ (2) a customary way of operation or behavior: ‘She changed her dietary pattern.’ (3) an artistic, musical, literary, or mechanical design or form: ‘The dishes have a floral pattern around the rim.’

To refer to the things that you do every day, usually in the same order, use routine: ‘The trip to Oslo was quite exhausting, but at least it provided an escape from the same old routine.’
