Today was yet another long day at work, where I only had time to eat 2,5 hours after I planned to. Luckily this does not happen often. I am very much a creature of habit on most things, but when it comes to meal times, I very fast become hangry it I don’t get fed on time. First I get a bit short tempered and if it goes on for too long I become an emotional monster. It is very weird how fast these routines sneak in to our lives and rule them so much. I know for sure that my colleagues would appreciate of I do get to eat at the normal time most days, as I am much easier to deal with on a full stomach, than on an empty one. At least that is what my other half tells me.
I have always been a creature of habit, but I do notice that I get worse as the years go by. And I catch myself thinking about if it is a good thing or a bad thing and I can not decide. The meal one is a physiological reaction, if I don’t eat when I am used to my blood sugar levels go down and I get hungry and if I don’t eat then I get hangry. That is something I don’t have a problem with, but most habits are just psychological and I am not too sure about how I feel about being a slave to them. The bad habits I try to work on changing and the good ones are always worth keeping. But there are so many that are neither good or bad, they are just there. They are kind of controlling a lot of things in our lives without us even noticing.
What are your thoughts on all the little habits that control us in the everyday? Do you have many or are you more of a free spirit than me? Do you get hangry?
