Gratitude journal

Today I've decided to quit playing League Of Legends and I'm glad this community exists.

One amazing thing that happened/I did today

I started the Respawn program

Workout/run

-10min of push ups and sit ups

-2*30 sec of plank

-2*30 sec of superman plank

Meditation

I will update later today.

I will do : 3min of cardiac coherence

Edit : didn't do it unfortunately! I'll do better next time

Visualisation

I won't do that yet.

Daily affirmation

I need to focus on my dream and remind myself that's why I have my job, to work on that dream

Reading + taking notes

I'll update later today.

I will: read at least 2 pages of a Laurent Gounelle book.

Edit : didn't do it unfortunately! I'll do better next time

 

My wake-up time

09:30am

 

Weekly Goal(s)

Keep up with my running workouts, be social in a healthy way, rest and heal properly in order to get back to work

Monthly Goal

Get back to work as a military, and also to draw daily.

3 Month Goal

Keep in shape as a military and advance in my career, keep drawing and finish 2 chapters of Drawabox exercices.

What went well today:

I started the Respawn guide, joined this forum and wrote down why I was playing and why I want to quit!

What I could have done to make my day better:

I could have had a better quality of sleep by not playing League Of Legends all night. Also I could have had woken up earlier in the morning. Also just after waking up I started playing League...

What I will do differently tomorrow:

I'll wake up earlier and not start playing League Of Legends right after waking up but rather work on my projects.

Today I've asked Riot Games's support team to delete my League Of Legends account. God knows how much time, energy and money I spent on these, deleting them is making me suffer but I've been spending all my time playing these past few days, even not sleeping last night.

I'm hoping I'm making the right decision, it's time to move on to spend time on things that truly matter. 

Still I'm afraid of solitude as I'm a socially akward bean and I've always struggled to make friends...

Workout/run

((-10min of push ups and sit ups

Will edit when I've done it

Meditation

I will update later today.

I will do : 3min of cardiac coherence

Visualisation

I won't do that yet.

Daily affirmation

I'm moving on from my past and its comforting presence and I'm terrifying, but I think it's for the better.

Reading + taking notes

I'll update later today.

I will: read at least 2 pages of a Laurent Gounelle book.

My wake-up time

None as I didn't sleep at night

Weekly Goal(s)

Keep up with my running workouts, be social in a healthy way, rest and heal properly in order to get back to work

Start new hobbies to compensate LoL

Monthly Goal

Get back to work as a military, and also to draw daily.

3 Month Goal

Keep in shape as a military and advance in my career, keep drawing and finish 2 chapters of Drawabox exercices.

What went well today:

I managed to be on time at some medical rendez-vous, by running.

What I could have done to make my day better:

I could have slept at night instead of playing League...

What I will do differently tomorrow:

I won't play League and start new hobbies and draw.

This is great. What is cardiac coherence meditation?

@BooksandTrees Thanks again for your support! 😄

Cardiac coherence is a way of breathing that makes your heart rate decrease and that way calms down your brain and your nervous system. It's especially useful for anxious persons like me. Usually you breath in for 5 seconds and breath out for the same amount of time, all that during 5 minutes total.

Here's a video if you're interested in trying:
