BlueIced 5 Posted Tuesday at 02:04 AM Share Posted Tuesday at 02:04 AM (edited) Hello, My name is Blue. In my story, I discuss how gaming and music has been a big part of my life, how it has helped my brain create this fantasy world that I have been trapped in for the past 14 years. Because of this fantasy world, I have been pissed off at the world with the idea that I'm the only one who knows what they're talking about. However, that is not the case, and now I am trying to break free from its grasp and destroy it for good. With this journal, I hope I will achieve that. Besides some smaller goals such as finally obtaining my drivers license, which I am currently working towards, my main goal is to train my mind to enjoy working hard. Working hard towards achievements in REAL LIFE, not in a game. In this fantasy world of mine, the character who plays me can do anything. So why can't I do that in real life too. The bulk of this journal will be detailing goals I have for each month and see if I complete them or not. I think by labeling each month with a specific goal, I will be able to layer goals in secession instead of trying to force myself to do a million new things in one day. Speaking of which, in order to quit, I think it would be easier for me as I layer these goals to decrease the hours I game each day, instead of trying to quit cold turkey and try to figure out what to do with the rest of the time. This was a problem with my last detox. Though I succeeded in 90 days and I walked and hiked, afterwards I would just watch youtube all day. Instead of doing something like reading. I think if I gradually decrease my playtime with each new habit, I won't be scrambling for something to fill the space with. Which I think will just be easier on my brain. For this month I hope to achieve basic hygiene and mind rituals. This includes: Getting to bed at a good time (10:00 PM at the latest) Waking up early (9:00 AM at the latest) Praying to God and noting things I am grateful for Making my bed Brushing my teeth WITH mouthwash (twice daily) Exercising Showering Getting Dressed Reading (Newspaper or Book) Breakfast Evening: Meditating Journaling Reading ---------------------------------------------------------- With this, I hope to stay off electronics after I finish breakfast and 2 hours before bed. If I manage to keep this up for a month I will consider myself successful. Edited Tuesday at 02:06 AM by BlueIced 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
