DAY254 What's up, folks! Just came back home from my first party ever. Got drunk for the first time. So I guess it counts as stepping from my comfort zone ( god damn this phrase is generic af). I'm writing this because I want to brag of the decision I've made. Because I assumed that I'll be there alone all the time, but I decided not to let these negative thoughts to take control over and I had the moment of my life! It was awesome! No regrets! I'm proud of myself

DAY251 If I'm writing here that means that another day has passed (sort of). Today was a normal day. Not really much to say. No special thoughts, feelings, sudden mind state swifts(the fuck's that?). There we go I wrote a paragraph. Workout Yes. Meditation Yas. Daily affirmation Focus on my goals. Reading Yes, reading A Song of Ice and Fire A Feast of Crows. What went well today: Staying in a good mood What I will do differently tomorrow: No YT/Discord on my phone. Today I'm grateful for: SnowGood moodPancakesBeautiful morning
DAY247 !!!!I WROTE THIS YESTERDAY, but didn't finish it I wasn't planning to write today, not with the mind state that I had a few hours ago because I couldn't do anything productive. Had insane mood swings, couldn't stay focused. Sometimes (for example today) I feel like I'm being bombarded by negative thoughts and everything I'm doing is pointless. I want to fall flat on my face. It's like I've lost the spark for my passion and life. Everything I do slips through my fingers. I thought my head is gonna explode so I just laid back on my couch for like 15mins so I could get a clear head. Afterwards, I meditated a bit ( downloaded this app called Headspace which is really cool), and I started to get back my clear mind state. Then I played some of my favorite music (old school HipHop) and as soon as I heard the sound of scratching my passion and love for music came back. I know this sounds weird, but fuck it, that's what happened
Workout Rest, so no need. Meditation Yas. Daily affirmation Think positively Reading Yes, reading A Song of Ice and Fire A Feast of Crows What went well today: Mind state swifts What I will do differently tomorrow: Turn off Wifi on my phone, stop being a perfectionist, no PC. Today I'm grateful for: HeadspaceMy JournalYou guysMusic
Today was a shitty day. I've failed to start off the day strongly and it felt like everything slipped from underneath me. It's 8:00pm at the moment, and I have no fucking idea how did time melt so fast? It feels like I was hypnotized or some shit. I can't even remember how I was able to procrastinate for 9 FUCKING HOURS. All the time I was trying to get my momentum back but I ended up writing here . It's like a loop. It seems that I need to be more aware of what I'm doing in the moment. Workout Yes Meditation Nope. Daily affirmation Think positively Reading Yes, finished reading The knight of the seven kingdoms. What went well today: Nothing. What I will do differently tomorrow: Turn off Wifi on my phone, stop being a perfectionist, no PC. Today I'm grateful for: Winning a rap battle.Long weekend
DAY243 Heyo folks! Today was alright. While being in school, same thoughts like "what am I doing here?" "I'm waisting my time here" started to kick in. You know the older I get the more it dawns on me that school doesn't prepare me for nothing but more school/studying wich in the long run leads to working a 9 to 5 for the rest of my life (sounds harsh). What pisses me off the most is that schools teach us to pass a test but to fail in the real world. They give us tons of stuff to learn by heart but not how to apply it in life. After reading "Think and Grow Rich" and "Outwitting the Devil" and discovering that "Whatever a mind can conceive it can achieve" I thought: "Hey why don't we get to read these types of books in school?". Anyways, thanks for reading see yea next time
Workout Of course! Meditation Nope, and I'm ashamed of it. Daily affirmation Think positively Reading Yes, just finished Outwitting the Devil by Napoleon Hill. What went well today: Freestyling. What I will do differently tomorrow: Think positevily. Today I'm grateful for: Positive moodAwesome weatherHipHop scratch mixeseasy day at schoolGetting stuff done easily
YES, Yes and yes. When I quit gaming focusing was one of the most hardest things to do (besides trying not to procrastinate).It was living hell, I struggled so hard to keep my head clear from thoughts about games.The only thing I could do was to force myself not to think about them. I started to notice improvements after like the first month or so.
Heyo! Long time no see folks! To sum up the past 2 months it was just me basically trying to get a grip on my life (as always). Things are better now than they were before, I barely procrastinate (word of the day), I'm more organized and I think that from being a hardcore pessimist I've turned into a happy optimist. It's like my mindset and my attitude towards life flipped over. Thanks to the help of Cam and a few self-improvement books, I think like a completely different person, then I was at the start of my Detox. Tho sometimes there's this feeling that is bugging me that it's been 8months since I've quit gaming and the only thing I've managed to do was to change my mindset. I barely improved my social skills. What I mean is that I'm the same kid who most of the time hibernates in his house but the way how he thinks has completely changed. If ya know what I'm sayin'
Workout Yes. Meditation Still thinking if I should begin doing that. Daily affirmation Think positively Reading Yes What went well today: Staying organized. What I will do differently tomorrow: Be more focused, positive thinking. Today I'm grateful for: For being in a positive moodGQself-improvement booksgetting back home earlierbetter focus
Hey Jacob! I suffered from the same thing ( over time it got a lot better).You see, the problem with focus is that it's so hard to maintain it and easy to lose it, so your ability to focus often depends on the environment that you're in. If you're having a hard time dealing with background noise I'd recommend you to install a White Noise app, or you could try out meditation I've heard that it helps to maintain better focus (haven't tried it out by myself tho).
