Planes don’t often crash due to sudden mechanical failure. It’s the course of many small failures that, over time, added up and overwhelmed the pilot at one pivotal moment.

Not prepping breakfast for the week leads to decision fatigue at mealtimes.
Fatigue leads to poor choices and low energy levels.
Low energy levels lead to more coffee or fancier coffees with empty calories in them.
More coffee leads to less sleep.
Your circadian rhythm becomes disrupted, and the risk of depression/anxiety skyrockets.
