  1. Day #5 Gratitude journal I'm thankful for my parents that support me, despite me having disappointed them enough in the past. One amazing thing that happened/I did today Nothing special comes to mind. Hmm Going outside I'm going to delete this section from my journal. I have well established that going outside is essential for my happiness. Weekly Goal(s) Go to sleep without watching anything on my phone. - 4day streak Monthly Goal Catch up on the lectures in the three most important classes. - I'm caught up in one of four important cl
  2. Your journal is impressive. I'm on day 4.. 5 weeks seems like an eternity away. Not using my phone directly after waking up also seems like an alien idea to me 😛 Congratz to 36 and good luck to you for making it to 67 and beyond!
  3. Day #4 Gratitude journal I'm thankful for everything I've learned about eating healthy and that I have the ability to employ those concepts. I do not always have the discipline yet, but I do have the means to eat healthy everyday. One amazing thing that happened/I did today At around 9:30 pm I felt like I wanted to listen to a lecture. I listened to a 10min recap of the last 2 lectures by my prof. The thought that I'm supposed to enjoy what I'm studying, has occurred to me ^^ I just hope that this will become a trend because it would make my life so much easier if I
  4. Day #3 @ZenoI did allright today. A friend told me to try watching it in 1.5 speed. It actually helps a lot because the boring bits still have enough speed that my mind can't wander and when the lecture really starts, I slow it back down to 1.0 speed and sometimes repeat watching segments. In total, I spent about 1:35 on a 1:30 lecture video but I feel like I got so much more out of it. As previously explained, I watched most of it fast and the important parts slow and twice. This is my first time trying it so we'll see how it works in other subjects. This was an Engineering subject with
  5. Having been in a similar situation, (though younger and not nearly as dramatic) on the "male's side" I think the only way to get something to actually change is if he wants to. And you can only find out that out by leaving him. In my case, she told me she would leave me if I didn't get it under control. Since I'm here now, it obviously still isn't 100% under control but there were much worse times. Anyways, I knew she was serious, and I told her she was right and we should seperate instead of ruining us both. She didn't want to leave me and still loved me but we knew this couldn't go on. That
  6. Day #2 Gratitude journal I'm thankful for living in a wealthy country where I have the opportunity to study and can enjoy luxuries like skateparks. Thinking about, its actually insane how much it costs the city to build one of these parks and I get to just use it for free. I'm also thankful for having a healthy body and enough confidence to wear protective gear without feeling self-conscious. I'm not a pro skater and even if I were, no amount of coolness is worth doing tricks in pipes and not wearing protective gear. I have made that mistake before and I'm thankful that I was
  7. Buenos dias Ted, You were one of the people that responded to my introduction and I wanted to thank you for that. Also, I really like your idea of using mediation as a means to build emotional self-control. Good luck with staying positive tomorrow! 👍
  8. Day #1 Gratitude journal I'm thankful for the people that took the time to respond to my introduction. I'm fairly certain they saved me from insta-relapsing and I hope to impact someone in a similar fashion someday. One amazing thing that happened/I did today I got a fistbump from a kid at the skatepark today. I didn't a particularly difficult trick, I think he just recognized me from a few weeks ago before the semester started. It was nothing out of the ordinary, but just him saying "hello" in that way and seeming genuinely happy to see me, felt really good. Of cour
  9. Thank you for your answers! I will write about how my day was in the journal but I wanted to answer you guys here as well. I actually attended a lecture today! Two, to be precise. I also started working the worksheets. In betweeen, my mind wanted a break though, just like @Amphibian220 said. When I needed a break, my mind was YELLING at me to chill for a sec and open a stream or watch some gaming videos on YouTube. I was about to do it because my weird self-deceiveing brain made up the idea that I had done good work and deserved it... Luckyily before doing that I came here to see if anyone
  10. Hello everyone, I'm in my mid-twenties I live in Germany and I've been gaming ever since I was a kid. I procrastinated everything until the very last minute with gaming and last semester even last-minute didn't get me going. Nobody knows how big this problem is because most of the time in my past I managed to get the stuff done just in time. I got through school with above average grades and even through my entire bachelor's degree. I think I could have gone on like that for even longer. What changed is that I moved for my masters degree and those friends that always got me going are far awa
