  1. #16 Today I put the blocks back on my phone and laptop... I was just being too unproductive. Still decided on the xbox, happy to be still connected with my friends though. Thankfully still sticking with all of my good habits 🙂 Good habits - Weekday DD (10), Morning ritual (10), Reading (10), Exercise (10), Meditation (10), Italian lesson (10), Message a friend (10), To-Do list (10), Journal (10). Yes agreed! Turning notifications off definitely helps.
  2. #16 Short one again today. Losing a bit of momentum with this journalling. Have noticed my bad habits are creeping in again. Fortunately I have stuck with all of my good habits so far which I am happy with. But need to look as to why I've losing focus. It feels with technology there are so many ways to distract yourself and procrastinate its hard to keep tabs with it all. In positive news I am happy with how my exercise is going... getting pretty fast now at running and also started a pull ups/push ups/abs regime. Good habits - Weekday DD (9), Morning ritual (9), Reading (9), Exercise (9), Meditation (9), Italian lesson (9), Message a friend (9), To-Do list (9), Journal (9).
  3. #15 Evening everyone. I seemed to have slipped into bad technology habits again... I play xbox with friends but also end up mindlessly browsing on forums, youtube or just random media. It really has a negative effect on me and need to nip it in the bud. I'm not quite sure how to deal with the bad habits I mentioned above but being conscious of it is a good start. Fortunately I have stuck with all of my good habits!

Hi Marek sorry I completely forgot to reply to you yesterday. I'm also in the camp of moderation never normally works for me, but for this lockdown I currently feel that being able to connect with my real life friends is providing more positive than the games are negatives, as long as I am staying productive. Once the lockdown is over I will look to sell my xbox and work on the other two remaining bad habits. In the last few days I have noticed my tech habits worsening though so this is something under constant consideration... Thanks for the reply and the encouragement, I appreciate it! 🙂
  4. #15 Man I am shattered today! Whenever I seem to play xbox with friends I struggle to fall asleep because my brain is too stimulated. As a result I'm pretty tired today, probably also because I ran a fast 5km so I'm ready for bed already lol. I have some serious decisions to make regarding my bad habits. It seems I currently have 3: 1) Playing xbox with friends 2) Media 3) Mindless browsing I try to stay away from 2 and 3 but sometimes slip up, especially when tired. Xbox is a big one... I did stop for a week but felt pretty isolated with the virus situation so started up again and feel better to be connected. I do acknowledge that it is probably a rationalisation though and especially on the weekends can abuse that rule... In good news I stuck to all my habits again, coming along nicely and its nice to get these done even on the bad days. Sorry if this post doesn't read well I'm knackered! Hope everyone is well :) Good habits - Weekday DD (7), Morning ritual (7), Reading (7), Exercise (7), Meditation (7), Italian lesson (7), Message a friend (7), To-Do list (7), Journal (7).
  5. #14 Hi guys. Generally good day again today. Starting it off really well with my morning ritual helps me feel great in the early hours. I had a games night with my friends last night which was fun however I did not drink which allowed me to get better sleep and feel better today which I am grateful for. I do have some flat spots during the day in which my immediate instinct is to procrastinate. I also am avoiding some of the more important items on my to do list so something to keep monitoring. I feel much healthier and also happier which is awesome, and my habits are becoming more like clockwork the longer I stick to them. My initial goal will be 30 days so will be awesome if I can reach that. I have a decision to make as to whether to keep my xbox to keep in touch with my friends or not. If I do keep it then when is it acceptable to play and when not etc. I would also enjoy being more productive with planning my future and some meaningful goals. Hope everyone is having a great weekend 🙂 Good habits - 9pm DD (6), Morning ritual (6), Reading (6), Exercise (6), Meditation (6), Italian lesson (6), Message a friend (6), To-Do list (6), Journal (6). They are indeed! Thanks. Totally, sunshine makes us all feel much better. Definitely agree with the not overloading advice hence why I'm not too stressed about the things I mentioned to work on, more so in the observing phase whilst I solidify the habits. Diet is actually pretty healthy, I don't really snack to much on sugary food and eat mostly wholesome plant based food. However, I was ill quite a lot in my past life so it is understandable that it would take awhile to turn around. But generally I feel great - moreso the mental swings that do me in! haha.
  6. #13 Short and sweet today. Had a nice bank holiday off - awesome weather and feeling good 🙂 Starting to get the hang of my morning routine and feeling the momentum of my habits. All habits done today. My To-Do list is the one that needs work. Currently I count it as done if I write a to do list (previously I didn't). Shortly that may have to change to having to complete the to do list or perhaps complete top 3 tasks etc. However I don't want to overstretch myself and I am happy with the progress I'm making so far. Good habits - 9pm DD (5), Morning ritual (5), Learning (5), Exercise (5), Meditation (5), Italian lesson (5), Message a friend (5), To-Do list (5), Journal (5). Haha yes boys I agree exactly. I do nap sometimes but I haven't got the immediately refreshing nap down to a T. Mostly I wake up a bit groggy still. But definitely something on my radar 🙂
  7. #12 Alright day today! Nice and sunny out which is good. Took a day off from exercising to let my body recover. I've got a few health issues which are bothering me a bit but trying not to get too stressed out by it. Will go to the doctors to get it checked if necessary. I take a lot of care with my health and its not something I take for granted so hopefully its nothing to worry about. I am currently really productive in the morning however always by 2pmish I get quite tired and just want to chill. Currently my only focus is to keep doing my good habits and keep stacking up the improvements, however I know that I need to set some meaningful goals to work towards. Having specific goals/purposes has always been a weakness of mine so I have been kind of putting it to one side. At some point I will have to face this though and actually figure out a path to take. Hope everyone is doing well in the lockdown. It can be tough.. remember to stay connected. Big love!

  8. #16 Another good day today. The sun is back (wooo) and definitely feeling more productive in the mornings still. I have a few aches/pains in my body, I eat a predominantly vegan diet so hoping its not due to a deficiency of some kind. Probably due to over training more than anything else though! Getting back into reading again slowly which is awesome. Currently reading Personal Development for Smart People - Steve Pavlina - great book so far. Could do better with my to do lists but other than that all habits going well 🙂 Good habits - 9pm DD (6), Morning ritual (6), Learning (6), Exercise (6), Meditation (6), Italian lesson (6), Message a friend (6), Write To-Do list (6), Journal (6).
  9. #15 Feeling better today! Man that stretch was difficult. Have a few ideas of the cause of that and thankfully managed to power through. I find it much more effective when I do my morning ritual when I first wake up rather than lying around being lazy. How you start the day is how you finish the day. Not many thoughts other than that, just grateful to still be on the path and certainly brought about a more humble approach to my journey.

  10. #14 I'm officially in a funk. Not sure why exactly, just feeling rubbish and everything is an effort. Just got to keep on going until this thing turns around. Hopefully I will get some clarity on the matter soon... I am eating well, sleeping, exercising. Got the fundamentals down pretty good but clearly something is missing. Anyway, still managed to do all of my good habits, hoping for betters days tomorrow 🙂 Good habits - 9pm DD (4), Morning ritual (4), Learning (4), Exercise (4), Meditation (4), Italian lesson (4), Message a friend (4), To-Do list (4), Journal (4).
  11. #13 I was in a bit of a funk today and I couldn't put my finger on it. I think a lot of it stems from the virus situation and feeling isolated. Thankfully I still managed to complete all of my good habits although I did spend a lot of time browsing youtube/forums for no real reason, basically just to distract myself from how I was feeling. I'm sure its nothing a good night of sleep won't sort! Good habits - 9pm DD (4), Morning ritual (4), Learning (4), Exercise (4), Meditation (4), Italian lesson (4), Message a friend (4), To-Do list (4), Journal (4). Yes I guess it is. But the feeling is more so from losing connection with my best friends, not just losing friends in general. But yes I agree, it seems my life is heading in a new unknown direction that is going to take me towards new friends and away from others. I guess I'm in a pondering phase of my life where I'm just trying to figure stuff out 🙂
  12. What change do you feel made the biggest impact on your life? What advice would you give someone on finding their purpose/mission/ work calling?
  13. #12 Going to be a short one today chaps as I'm knackered. Last night was games & beers. Unfortunately whenever I drink I always get an awful night sleep which makes the next day really difficult. Thankfully I still managed to pull through with all of my good habits but will be getting an early night tonight to make up for it. I have however realised that drinking alcohol does not fit my current life plan and I will be stopping. When the lockdown is over and I go out with friends I may drink but certainly no more at home, it just costs me too much. Currently I am sticking with one games night a week for social reasons (friday - no DD) but will be looking at that too. Last thing on my mind is my friends. I feel like I am losing a deep connection with most of my friends. I used to have many friends with best friends too. Now I feel like I just have friends. I'm not sure why, perhaps I need to put more effort in. One reason could be with the work I do on myself I notice bad influences around me a lot easier making me judgemental, perhaps I have too high standards and expectations on how people should behave. But certainly my social network has got worse, specifically when I met my SO and went from going out with mates a lot to a more mature lifestyle. Anyway, hope everyone is well!

  14. #11 Today was also a tricky one... finding the lockdown particularly tough being locked in a small flat, my SO is also, we are realising how important it is to each have space and time to themselves. On the plus side I managed to complete all of my good habits and my to do list. Currently having the feeling that all days kinda merge into one as they are all very similar. Will be very glad to have the lockdown finished but also see it as a good way to grow and test your discipline. Will also be glad when the sun comes back out as it definitely makes a difference to my mood. Haven't really had anything on my mind today, just one of those days where you have to keep going. Games night & beers tonight with friends so the real test will be tomorrow as usually having a few beers impacts my sleep/hangover. Wishing you guys the best.

  15. Awesome job man - good luck! Remember there will be hard days and that is when you will have to show your true character & resolve. Try and recognise any triggers you may have (stress, boredom, etc.) and pay close attention to yourself in those moments. Perhaps plan ahead what you could do instead if you find yourself having a funky day. Don't beat yourself up too much in your weak moments, no one is perfect! Either way - I'm sure you will rock it 🙂
