  1. Day 2 Productive time: 02:29:00 Yesterday was not much better either, I ended up procrastinating and wasting a lot of time again. I need to get out of this rut because otherwise I am going to run into way too many issues. I have been so stressed lately, need to sort out bunch of stuff for University as well as accommodation and just hoping that things work out but I will need to put the work in. I am getting back to my better habits and I do not have games as a form of escape so I am sure I will be able to improve things. I hate whenever I reach this point with stress a
  2. Day 1 Productive time: 04:03:00 Well it has been some time, I decided to take a break from here for a few days but ultimately I ended up relapsing. It all started when I got a new phone. I really like it, especially compared to my old one as everything is nice and smooth and I do not have any problems. However, because of it being much more powerful I ended up playing quite a few mobile games. And that became a huge issue, I have played mainly CoD mobile for about a month without doing anything else, just game after game claimbing the ladder. It took me a while to real
  3. A bit late reply but great to hear that the knee is getting better. Soon you won't need any crutches. Also congrats on getting close to your weight goal. I use Brave which has a inbuild adblock and it is so refreshing not seeing ads on phone, well there stil are quite a few of them in apps but it is what it is. On the other hand there is the benefit of the apps being free if there are aps there but some site push it way to far for sure.
  4. Day 26 Habits: Positive: (Lab_work:16, Russian:26, R programming:26, Excel:16, Workout:14, Stretching:14) Gaming free:26, Gaming videos:6, No takeaway: 6 Productive time: 06:00:00 Get out of bed time: 06:30 Oh man, I have not been doing that great in terms of daily journaling. However otherwise things are going well I would say. I decided to do a one month YT free challenge. I will still have access to it in lab, as I might need it for some work possibly but it is too time consuming at home and I blocked it for that reason. I am quite curious t
  5. I see, hopefully you get someone that will be able to help it! Stay strong buddy! It might be better if the meds will help but I do remember that you were quite happy once you got off. It will be best to leave it to the therapist though, it might be the best solution after all. Good to hear that the knee is getting better. I am sure you will be able to walk just fine in no time.
  6. Day 23 Habits: Positive: (Lab_work:15, Russian:23, R programming:23, Excel:14, Workout:14, Stretching:14) Gaming free:23 Yesterday was okay, I was not too productive. However, I am pretty excited that my league accounts should be deleted soon. I have realized that I had one more which I set up to delete. It is still so tempting to play, I think it is because of the extra stress these days. I have not been reading as much and I would like to get back to it. I have only few more pages in the light novel that I want to finish and then I can start the Rhythm of War
  7. Hope that the new therapist will be able to help. How is your knee? Is the PT helping? Good to see that things are improving.
  8. Day 22 Habits: Positive: (Lab_work:15, Russian:22, R programming:22, Excel:14, Workout:14, Stretching:14) Gaming free:22 Well last few days were pretty okay. I did not get back to journaling as I did not have time in the mornings. Kinda sucks that I was not able to keep up my morning routine but it is what it is. I had a nice trip over the weekend and managed to get a decent amount of work done. I was also good at keeping my daily habits on learning Russian and programming, even though I have not done too much progress but I was consistent which is the main thi
  9. Day 18 Habits: Positive: (Lab_work:12, Russian:18, R programming:18, Excel:12, Workout:10, Stretching:10) Gaming free:18 Last five days were fine but I did not manage to follow with my morning routine which was a bit of shame, I kept postponing writing an entry, so I wanted to just briefly catch up and then from tomorrow reset nicely again. I managed to get a lot of work done and experiments seem to be going well to so that is great. I ordered a new phone so hopefully I will get it some time next week for which I am super excited. I am still struggling with Fa
  10. That is good to hear, I think that therapy can be super helpful. That is a good suggestion on her part. If it is stressing you this much you might just need some time off to relax and then get back with a strong start. Take care mate.
  11. Day 13 Habits: Positive: (Lab_work:8, Russian:13, R programming:13, Excel:9, Workout:9, Stretching:9) Gaming free:13 Productive time: 08:29:00 Get out of bed time: 07:30 I will keep this one brief, pretty average day yesterday. I really enjoyed the warm sunny weather though. It was super lovely outside and overall a good day. The phone should be on it's way so I am super excited for that. It will be such a massive improvement compared to the phone that I currently have. It still might take few more days in the mail but hopefully soon. Can't wa
  12. That is good to hear! Stay safe! I am sorry but I am not sure what else would help. I think this would be something to discuss with a professional and find some solutions to mitigate it. I am sure there is a way to improve it. That's great to hear, just give it some more time and I am sure you will be able to get back to walking and exercise in no time.
  13. Day 12 Habits: Positive: (Lab_work:7, Russian:12, R programming:12, Excel:8, Workout:8, Stretching:8) Gaming free:11 Productive time: 03:29:00 Get out of bed time: 08:30 Another day fighting battles with Facebook. Well will see, there might be some progress this week. Overall a nice and relaxing day though, I have not done too much but I was not planning on it so I do not mind that at all. I got up fairly early too which was nice as well. I ended up spending bunch of time with a friend and we watched some Kevin Hart specials which is always a
  14. Whatever works mate, if I lay down when I meditate I tend to fall asleep haha. Sitting makes it easier to focus a bit better imo. It is great to hear that there is no damage on your shoulder and knee. I think that for the cartilage the best thing to do would be physical therapy and some mild stretching and of course rest untill things get better. My shoulder is super sore today too haha. Odd thing is that only one of the two. I agree with Books, you need to get better at not being at the complete control of the DE, even though it might be hard, you have to learn how to fight it.

  15. Day 11 Habits: Positive: (Lab_work:7, Russian:11, R programming:11, Excel:7, Workout:8, Stretching:8) Gaming free:11 Productive time: 06:15:00 Get out of bed time: 11:30 I got up way too late but I was pretty tired so I decided to catch up a bit on sleep. I made a delicious BBQ dish, beef short rib. I was surprised how well it turned out as I did not follow the recipe and I never cooked it before but it turned out perfectly. I was a bit worried because I bought it quite randomly too but now I know that I will get it some time again. Otherwise
