Habits: The Good, The Bad, And The Weird

Habits: The Good, The Bad, And The Weird
We're all creatures of habit. Whether they're good, bad, or weird — we've all got them. This episode, we're acknowledging all of our habits and committing to the good. How can we can break out of unhealthy (or unhelpful) habits to create rituals that better serve us in our day-to-day lives?

Habits are psychological patterns that we form over time through repetition in our daily lives. Whether we notice it or not, the work we do each day contributes to our good and not-so-good habits. Our habits could be as simple as taking a daily vitamin, or more complex like procrastinating on a deadline.

Addressing all of our habits gives us more awareness and insight as we move forward. It's important to acknowledge the good habits so we can keep up with these behaviors, and equally important to change the bad (which we all know isn't easy). Both at work and at home, how can we form habits that will work in our favor? At the same time, how can we break habits that get in the way of our success?

We're talking about all of our habits: the good, the bad, and the weird. If you've ever wondered what good, offbeat, or downright questionable habits get us through the day are, this is the episode for you.

Killer Bee
This week's mezcal cocktail packs a sting and puts a smoky twist on an original gin drink. The Killer Bee is just three ingredients: Montelobos mezcal, honey, and lemon. This cocktail is based on the popular drink Bee's Knees, but replaces the gin with a smokier and harder-hitting mezcal spirit. Lemon and honey mix with the mezcal for a zesty, easy-to-prep drink. As the winter begins to thaw, get your creative juices flowing with this inventive cocktail.


  • 2 oz. Montelobos mezcal
  • 3/4 oz. honey syrup (equal parts honey and water)
  • 1 1/2 oz. freshly squeezed lemon juice


  1. In a cocktail shaker, combine the mezcal, lemon juice, and 3/4 oz. honey syrup.
  2. Fill the shaker 3/4 full with ice and shake vigorously for 10 seconds if serving on the rocks, or 15 seconds if serving “up.”
  3. Strain into an ice-filled double old-fashioned glass or bucket glass, or serve up with no ice.
