365 Writing Prompts: Break down

Tell about a habit you’d like to break. Is there any way it can play a positive role in your life?

A habit is something not easy to break, think about the millions of smokers, they know it’s detrimental to their health and they must break this habit, but they cannot.

Then there are scores of people who love fast food, which is also harmful as far as their health goes, they are not successful giving up this craze for fast food.

These are only couple of things I’m thinking of which are bad habits, there are good habits as well, such as,”early to bed early to rise makes a person, healthy,wealthy and wise.”

At this moment I cannot think of a habit I’d like to break!

DP Daily Prompt: Handmade Tales

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

Automation has made it possible to produce so many objects—from bread to shoes—without the intervention of hands(assuming that pressing a button doesn’t count). What things do you still prefer in their traditional, handmade version?

Automation has its place in our lives, we are living in an age when time is of utmost importance, some of us leave one job to go to  another, if that’s the case who has time to cook . This is when ready made food comes in handy. Assembly line products are welcome most of the time.

Having said that, I do like to cook food from scratch when time permits, no matter how easy it is to buy a TV dinner that we can stick in the microwave oven and within minutes we get a hot meal.

There is a certain charm of cooking  food by hand,for starters it won’t smell the same or will have the same flavor.After a while one gets tired of ready made food. I know I will. When I cook I have the privilege of making it spicy or use less spices according to how I feel that particular day.

While automation gives us freedom to do other things that require our immediate attention, when we cook food ourselves we make sure it is something tasty and not harmful for our well-being.
