Day 25

After giving myself a few pep talks I'm back to programming again. Set a move out date as well. Been having cravings to play games but they are completely different since the "sometimes games are not fun" realization. They are extremely weak and fade quickly.

A thought occurred to me as I meditated this morning. Worrying about the future is a lot like worrying about how to make each and every blade of grass on your lawn stand perfectly straight:

Your doing the wrong thing. You should be worried about making sure the grass is cut to reasonably. You will never get each blade perfectly straight and even if you did it accomplishes nothing.

In terms of worrying about the future, you should not worrying about whats going to happen to you. You should plan on what you are going to do. Events will always happen that will "bend the grass" but viewing life, the future, ect. in terms of what can go wrong is just a recipe for depression.

Showering first thing in the morning is my first good habit of the day. xD

This. There's something about devoting yourself to a routine that kind of gives you a boost of energy.

I noticed that it's getting harder and harder to get myself to code. I think it's because it's all I do during the day other than internet surfing. I did manage to do some coding on day 28 though.

It depends, because if you want to boost your viking level, you have to do your showers with cold water.

I did it for 2 months, and the results were incredible.

Try it out, if you're brave enough, and tell me the results! :)

Got a little programming done. I should have taken a shower at the start of the day because I spent a huge amount of it in bed.

I've been told a lot of great things about cold showers. My current house does not have central heating so the idea of waking up in a cold bed, walking into a cold hallway and taking a cold shower is a bit too much for me at the moment. I will try this when I move back in.

Day 31

I'm still stunned at how a small change can make such a huge difference. Unplugged keyboard and mouse from laptop in my bedroom and I once again cut hours off of my start up time. Meditated and got a good amount of programming done.

I had a mild desire to play video games during my depressed period a few days ago but the urges where still very weak. Far to weak for me to relapse. I did not even think about gaming today. It still surprises me just how much my relationship with gaming has changed.

Day 32

I tried the cold shower this morning. I swear the brain I have now is not the one I had yesterday. It makes a ridiculous difference. I'm able to focus on the programming a lot more.

Day 33

 

Taking cold showers is going to be a lot harder than I thought. I used the start hot go cold plan yesterday. I tried going full blast cold but it was too much for me.

YEP! Remember to BREATHE. Breathing is crucial during cold showers.
