I have a tendency to do things out of habit, things that just make me comfortable. For example with few exceptions I have not worn matching socks since the second grade because why waste the time to match them and as long as they’re the same length it adds character. I’m unfortunately a creature of habit, one that will hardly ever be seen wearing matching socks. The socks in this picture are actually the only matching ones I tend to wear since they’re the only similar type of socks I have.
Lately part of my routine has been wearing wool socks and drinking decaf coffee at night while comfy clothes, whether that is my sweats or my pj nightshirt. It just helps me to detox and feel more relaxed, whether or not this is prior to or following a bath is also becoming frequent. Checking my todo lists and making sure my alarm is set is also a habit, a good one. Making sure I’m prepared for the next day is an evening habit. If my life isn’t in order I can’t quite sleep. The disorganization of my clothes and books may be distracting to the normal person but as long as my brain and things are ready for the next day I can sleep.
Of course my habits can be bad too. I crack my knuckles, try on 15 different outfits before I find one I want to wear, then leave the other 14 on the ground, or just leaving my papers all around rather than putting them in their designated folders. Habits are hard to crack, for now I’m just going to enjoy my wool socks and decaf coffee. Also, don’t give me crap for drinking decaf! I love the coffee taste I just can’t stay up late with work the next day. What are your good or bad habits?
