    Habit building books
    What are some of the books that help build habits?
    I've read the slight edge by Jeff Olson, and I understand the principle. However it's hard to stay focused on tasks, if I don't remember to do something, I'm likely to not do it simply because it's not on my mind, but not because I don't want to do it... Habits are usually a fix to that since you kinda start doing things automatically in the end.
    Also what are some of the habits that are the most productive in your lives(besides reading books haha)?

    Bodyweight fitness, easier to get into
    Hello, I just wanted to share my progress as well as maybe help motivate those who are somewhat afraid of going to gym.
    A few days after I quit gaming, roughly a month ago, I was browsing reddit.com/r/fitness and saw this topic: http://www.reddit.com/r/Fitness/comments/37yuv0/xpost_from_rbodyweightfitness_progress_ive_been/
    I gave it a try and have since done 2-3 sessions per week. The progressions are cool and start from as easy as rocking away from a doorframe standing up for pushups, the community is very friendly and wiki is extensive. Most of all, there's no need for gym or expensive setups, I started at home on my floor ?
    That said, I eventually did end up in local small gym because it was cheap(about $40/month including pool!), because outside is very hot now, and because backs of chairs are annoying. Here's my progress spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1aMD3orLPqh7vsfIVAnRw-cjJV3OcIqxJNh7rBK7EhoU/edit?usp=docslist_api
    Finally, I would recommend connecting with anyone online and sharing your progress. My buddy says I motivate him to go without fail just because I'm usually talking to him from gym. I would be willing to talk to anybody here as well when I'm off to exercise if it helps ? hit me up.

    Anything related to getting out of comfort zone is a challenge for me currently. From getting out of bed to cleaning to calling an electrician to studying and even going to the pool I recently got membership to... So I'm slowly building my tolerance, hopefully.
    I started a journal, and every time I would write in it would be along the lines of "I played too much, I hate myself, I hate where this is going, it will probably get much worse if I don't quit". I didn't quit after first few of those, but something changed in a way that I've been able to keep track of the disappearing time when I gamed. One day I just became too frustrated at this, found r/stopgaming and joined an online meeting.
    I just think now that there's nothing good for me in gaming ever again...

    ?Hello, my name is KD
    I am coming over from reddit community where I am proud to have reached 1 month sober badge.
    I am from Melbourne, Australia, currently on a working holiday in Hong Kong.
    I have played games obsessively since I was 10, however it seemed fine until a couple of years ago when I couldn't balance it with uni studies and got kicked out. I only really started understanding the problem about a month ago when I decided to quit gaming altogether, finally having my head clear up a bit.
    My goals are financial stability and to open my own makerlab/hackspace. ?
