Ever notice that when we are most stressed and need to do all those things that are good for us (exercise, drink water, don't eat too much sugar, don't drink too much caffeine, and don't drink too much alcohol), we do exactly those things. They seem to offer a quick comfort at the expense of a clear head or calm psyche.
Wish I understood.
Maybe it's because they feel like obligations and not following them feels like a small sense of freedom when so much else feels out of our control . . .
