Welcome to this community!

I'm 100% sure you change things for the better and make your dreams come true if you stay away from gaming.

     '' Reason of make change in my life

      Be more productive. Prevent wasting of time. Want to get things done.''

     I and many others struggled with these things as well in the beginning. I can tell you from personal experience that this will change for sure when you're further into your detox. In the beginning you may not see point in doing other things or you find other things kind of boring compared to gaming. That's because your brain is fixated on constant instant gratification and entertainment. I can tell you from personal experience that I've so much more joy in my life whenever I go to the gym and see progress in my body. Fitness is for me my key habit which transforms everything in my life. Whenever I go to the gym I also take my rest, I eat healthier and am more interested in personal development.  

     You need to find out for yourself what kind of activities you like and where your passion lies. You'll be 10000x times more productive whenever you have a purpose/goal which you live for and can work on 24/7. 

    I'm looking forward toward you next posts and if you ever need help with your detox we are here to help you out!

Day 41~42 (challenge day 2)

Oh wow my friends are going to make their own board game called"enchanted woods" and I am responsible for designing the characters!! I think that's a extremely reasonable purpose for me to work hard during this holiday! Actually  I trained at least 5 hour a day as I attended the online drawing group. And I am going to design my first character today! And yesterday I went to my friend's house and he teached me basic operations about Maya. I am so excited.

Nice new name! :)

  - Behaviors I would like to change

 

Lazy. Forgetful. Lack of Attention.

 

 

These were changing very quickly when I started my detox. Around 2 weeks in me (and my surroundings) immediately noticed the difference.

 

Within 2 weeks can have difference?It seems amazing! Because I always think that bad behavior is very difficult to change. I look foward to see my improvement!

Thx Robin. I did go to gym and yoga before. I also buy Monthly membership. But I am so lazy and shy to go there. I always feel nervious when meeting people, I afraid having dead air, don't know what to say and would like they see me an invisible person, it will make me feel safe. I just finished some personal trainer lesson, actually when I go to the gym,   I got the above feeling and don't want to meet my personal trainer when I am not in the lesson day, although I pay a hung amount of money to buy this services. Therefore, I finished the lesson a few monthes ago but I seldom go to the gym and yoga. I know I really wasting my money and feel guilty. I kown gym ang yoga is good for me, but I usually think am I bother other people? Am I look different from other people? Am I look poor and not belong to this middle class gym yoga centre?

 

I think I have passion on many things such as cooking, beauty, keep fit etc. But always lose interest in a short period of time.

Anyway, thank you your advice and your encouragement, I was full of energy after reading your reply!

I feel really bad reading your reply. I've got the feeling that you are an amazing person and that you could achieve a lot of things in life. If I would live closely to you I would have loved to workout together with you :)  If you feel like you have passion for something than go for it! I know it sounds easier than it is, but life is too short to not take action on the things you wanna do. Don't ask yourself things like do I look different from other people, because that doesn't matter at all. You're an amazing person and you can ALWAYS change the way you look. I started out as a not confident/skinny fat kid who was addicted to gaming. I hated the way I looked. I couldn't communicate with girls because I had become socially awkward, because I only talked with people online. But I've changed all those things for the better. I now live a much happier life and I've become a whole different person. I love to socialize with people and make new friends. And I even got a six pack and coach other people on how they can improve their body's. 

But I know a bit how you feel though. In the beginning I was shy and scared too when I stepped into the gym. Some things that really helped me were going together with a friends instead of alone and putting on my favorite music which calmed me. Nowadays I go to the gym with a lot of energy and I'm excited to meet other people. It's weird how these things change. I think it just comes down to getting through that beginner stage and stepping out of that comfort zone. Soon you'll realize that you're not bothering anyone but yourself by not doing the things you want to do.

If you ever need help with fitness related things hit me up. I would love to help you out and I could even make workout/food programs for free for you.

Don't give up and let's make this an awesome journey together! <3

That's a good steps!

If you finish a Respawn AT LEAST and watch/listen to Cameron's video on your mp3, then, you built an awesome fundament for the beginning.

So, go and build it! :D

Game Quitters Challenge Day 3

Time I woke up: 6:05 a.m.

Time I went to sleep yesterday: 11:00 p.m.

 
What I am grateful for today
  • Purchase The Slight Edge in Amazon
  • Finished some Invoice
  • Finished the plant application form
  • Finished 10 minutes meditation
  • Finished 15 minutes exercise
  • Finished the the Introduction, foreword & the first chapter of The Slight Edge
It's difficult to believe that the beach bum and the millionaire is the same person! His life really is in a roller coaster. He could't see the justice or the logic of it. Was life just inherently unfair? These questions I also always think about too. why some people looks like  born with a silver spoon in his mouth, they even no need to do anything any get everythings they want. Then he found that the thimgs move us upwards and down is the little things we do everyday. They seem insignificant, but when they conpounded overtime would yield big result.
In the Praise from the Readers of The Slight Ege, many people found the book is useful and they have great change .  I would like to apply this in my daily ife , to see what result I will get. It seems like a magic.
 
Extra List 
  • Study for 15-30 minutes (Failed)
  • Write down Mathematics Formulas (Failed)
Today I failed on studying and writing the formulas. I keep surfing on the internet after I came home after work. I watch youtube and go to forum to read people's post. I escape from doing the things I need to do. Will I finish the tasks tomorrow?

Thx Robin. You are so nice.  I would try to take action on the things I need to do. How do you socialize with people? Don't you afraid dead air and have nothing to talk with? Do you read newspaper everyday to get some idea in conversation?

I seldom talk to peopke and just have a few of friends in secondary school. Now I leave school and go to work everyday, still don't have much friend. I join the gym in April this year, you know  there are many guys in the gym,  I think I rarely stay in an area full of guys so I feel nervious. You are right, I need to step out of my comfrot zone and get a try, I need to make it as a habit and go to gym more often to let myself familiar with the cicumstances. 

I would like to lose weight. I am 27 years old, 168cm tall and 60kg weight. I would like to lose 5-10 kg and get 25 inches waist. What do you think I should do?

It seems that I am older than you a lot, hope we don't have generation gap.

Hey I am 26 and can confirm everything that Robin said. So I don't think a generation gap applies here.

The main Thing about socialising isn't to have smth. interesting to say. It is to be interested about other people. Ask your colleagues after the problems they have and be interested in these Problems. Not just nod and say oh that sucks but ask further details. Most of the time you can share some similar problems you have in in your life afterwards. This is a slow Progress from superficial to more and more personal stuff as you start to trust each other.

Also  make it  ahabit o smile look others in their eyes and walk straight. This little things make a big change in how the world will see's you and how you feel. I did these things and feel like I have great conversations wiht my colleagues all the time and I am an introvert. It is no magic. Try it out.

Stepping regulary a little bit out of your comfort Zone is also a great way to improve your self confidence. And self confidence is great for socialising. I think with working out the main idea is to stay consistent. Just find a reasonable Routine and do it for 3months 2-3times a week. Eat a lot of Protein. You'll see changes in your Bbdy pretty soon if you stick to these two rules. Maybe Robin can give you more insights about specific training plans.

Game Quitters Challenge Day 4 (25.11.2016)

The time I woke up: 6:05 a.m.

The time I went to sleep yesterday: 11:00 p.m.

My morning success routine

6:00 Get up

6:00-6:05 brush teeth & wash face

6:05-6:15 meditation

6:15-6:30 exercise

6:30-7:00 shower, prepare breakfast and have it

7:00-7:10 get dressed

7:15 leave home

Today my alarm clock rang at 6:00, I turned it off and would like to sleep a while. But when I close my eyes, I realized that I would get up at 7 and do nothing in my routine. So I get up immediately to start it. During meditation, my brain cannot stop thinking; I don't know if it is normal. It's same as I was having yoga when I close my eyes and say Om..., I still have many things running in my brain. For exercise, I found some 10-15 minutes youtube video to do, maybe I did not exercise for a period, I felt tired and keep gasping. 15 minutes seems such a long time.  I finished meditation and exercise at 6:40,  a little bit late than I expect. So the rest was in a rush. When I go to work, I 've got a feeling that I did many things in one hour in the morning, it's interesting.

What I am grateful for today

    did not crawl back in bed

    prepare healthy breakfast (Muesil clusters & almond milk)

    Finished meditation & exercise

    Make a fast dinner ( Tortellini, dumpling and pork chop, all frozen food)

    Write down some Mathematics formula

  Extra List

    Study for 15-30 minutes (Failed)

How many more days I have left to live

20,052 days

I found that I am interested with one of my colleagues, we always have a chat. She shared her experience, and I would ask further. I can chat with her normally and laugh together. But for other colleagues, I seldom chat with them, you are right, I am not interested in them, so I can’t socialize with them. One of them usually tease me or says sth that seems harmless but is actually a criticism, insult or attack when I talk about other things such as food, girls with him, it makes don’t want to chat with him, and he always say my feedback is cold or no feedback upon his works.

 

I always smile and look others eyes when talking. But my face has no expression when I am walking. People said I always black face. Some of my friends said I look lack of confidence as I didn’t keep my back straight. I think I need some time to correct it and step out from my comfort zone. Thank you for your advice Work In Progress.
