Everyone has their own habits...right? Some call them that way, others go for the term 'traditions' or 'rituals', but the name is the least important thing. The point is everyone likes to do particular stuff (once in a while?) for their personal reasons.
For me, whether there's the warm vanilla tea mug in the middle of a windy autumn day, the fluffy socks when it's too ashy outside or the long park walks they're basically all used for medical purposes — a.k.a. for slowing down my thoughts. I also use them as an excuse to chill out, especially when I have tons of work to do.
However, I'm starting a new set of blog-entries throughout which I'll develop the habits talk. Let's just call this post a pilot one and the next to appear will be more elaborated. Pinky promise.
