how ma’habocath solves problems, mostly

Of the out-of-nowhere “I feel like crap / I am crabby / bad thoughts won’t go away” problems, this one typically goes through:

  1. Eat something small, wait at least 5 minutes.
    1. At home, this is usually a small bowl of oats, peanut butter, and milk. Or something more protein-ey if it’s been a few hours since last high-protein meal, like eggs.
    2. At work, this is usually a cup of skim milk and/or a few bites of homemade bread or protein bar I always keep in a plastic baggie in my pockets.
    3. 90% of the time, problem is solved. If not, goto 2.
  2. Use one or more of many “anti-anxiety/depression” techniques. Examples:
    1. Think happy thoughts: about movies/shows/music I like and so on. If need be, fantasize about cute girls.
    2. Write down whatever is on my mind; may or may not crop up as future blog post.
    3. If at work, rely on the healing power of small-talk. Especially light-hearted jesting. Doubly-especially if customer or coworker is cute; this ma’hab finds works very well.
    4. 95% of the time, problem is solved. If not, goto 3.
  3. Eat something more, and a lot of it. Wait at least 5 minutes.
    1. If problem is still not solved, uh oh. At this point it is time for more “direct” intervention of serious issue, depending on its nature.

ma'habocath knows some, tells much. ma'habocath knows few things others do. This one is a live-alone, full-time burger-flipper with an odd mind and too much to say. ma'hab always tries the best ma'hab can to keep up: • Chores • Bodybuilding and other health-nuttery • Japanese language studies • Culinary experimentation (see “other health-nuttery”) • Exploration of newfound spiritual territory • Exploration of my Self • Figuring out how to socialize well enough, mostly face-to-face • Backlogs: books, heavy metal, anime • Blogging, chatting, texting, and talking to whomever will listen about all of the above
