Last week I wrote about ten things I've learned since moving into a van. In reviewing the list there were just two items specifically related to the day-to-day practicalities of living in a van.
According to Charles Duhigg, routine is one of three steps to building lasting habits. There is a cue (or trigger), then the routine, then a reward. The three steps create a reenforcing loop which as a hole is the habit.
I have to try hard not to giggle every time (like right now) Paul disappears into the van, practically into our Kitchen Cubbyhole itself, trying to dig out the small burner, pan, matches, or whatever is currently needed.
