E. M.’s Sunday Ramble Prompt No. 20 #em-srp

E. M.’s Sunday Ramble Topic this week is all about Habits and Routines.

Do you have a daily routine that you are used to, or do you just go with the flow of the new day? Being retired, I gave up having a daily routine years ago. I go with the flow, or you might say, I wing it…

Do you do anything in your life habitually that you wish you could stop? Thinking myself into tight little circles.

If habit was the acronym H.A.B.I.T, what would it be short for? Have A Beer, It’s Time!

Are we born with our bad habits? Or do we acquire them from the environment surrounding us? Habits are learned behavior. In some ways, they result from natural curiosity, which comes from genetics; in other ways, they’re responses to external stimuli. I smoked and drank for years because my parents and most of the people in my family did; I didn’t spring from the womb with a Budweiser and a Winston and ask for a light. There are certain other habits, on the other hand, that I figured out all by myself. We needn’t go into the details…

Are you a night owl, early bird, or something else when it comes to sleeping routines? I stay up late and get up late, so I’m a night owl. Although, it’s funny, I find myself falling asleep in the afternoon…

Those are my final answers, Regis!

Tally-ho and away we go!
See you next week with a brand new show!

  1. I can definitely relate with the circular thinking and the night owl afternoon naps. I have days when I could sleep the whole day away, even if I had already slept 10 hours lol. I enjoyed your answer about the learned habits also. I think the general consensus has been that they are learned over being born with bad habits. 🙂 Thank you for rambling with me! Happy Easter!


    1. My grandmother and great-aunt lived together. I was staying at their house one night, and I woke up at 3 AM and heard all this mumbling in the living room. I got up to check, and they were doing the Liturgy of the Hours (specifically Lauds), still fully dressed from the day before. These were the same two ladies that would nod off repeatedly during the late afternoon and morning…
