I am looking for correct phrase that means observing a proper(healthy) daily routine (day schedule). Daily routine here is 24h interval, not only working hours.

"Keep regular hours" is appropriate example?

Thank you

"keeping to a healthy daily regimen" might work, or simply "a healthy daily regimen".

The word, "regimen" imply a healthy set of habits when used like this.

I would say 'keeping a healthy daily routine' personally.

I realise this may not make much sense to Americans (who have less objection to orders and demands than we Brits) but "regimen" sounds too much like "regimented" and has military overtones.

regimented adj
excessively disciplined or ordered
