On habits

The day consists of habits, habits, habits. After work I have the habit to walk home. It takes 45 min and during this 45 min l at least try to forget the working life. Today it was freezing cold and I'm not yet used to it, but I walked home. A habit that had established a month ago.

I thought about habits during my way home. One habit accompanies me during decades: It is the cold shower in the morning (of course after the warm shower). Every morning I look forward to this fresh water, which wakes me up.

Even the morning cup of coffee changed, it used to be a cup of tea a few years ago. Astonishing that I like this cold shower so much. When I started this habit, I found that the water was cold, too cold.
