Any recommendations for First Time Quitter?


Recommended Posts

1) I've never been able to establish a journaling habit.

2) I am starting a youtube channel. Fitness helps a lot because of the noticeable improvement. Still looking for something competitive. 

3) This depends on your responsibilities and desired life style. For example, if you want to workout in the morning to start your day off hard, your sleep schedule will differ radically from someone who doesn't. 

4) I highly recommend Emotional Intelligence by Daniel Goleman. 

Bonus: I would look internally for the answers to these questions. You need to find a schedule and activities that serve your needs instead of copy and pasting from overs. For example, when you journal should be based on what you want to get out of journaling. If you want reflective insights, journal at the end of the day. If you want motivation to conquer your day, journal at the beginning.

When do you journal daily?

Only at work, when it is related to work

Biggest part: meeting friends and going out for a walk

Everything that helped me meet people in general.

  1. I journal before bed but if I'm distraught I journal immediately.
  2. I started with recording a podcast, then did yoga, then did floor hockey and volleyball. I stuck with hockey and volleyball and added rock climbing and 3d animation.
  3. That's up to you. I do 12 to 8. If I have a purpose to wake up for in the morning I enjoy waking up at 6 AM though.
  4. I don't think you should read self improvement books because most of it is recycled garbage from authors taking advantage of people. People read self help books to feel like they're improving their life but don't improve their life because reading requires energy and you have to actively put energy into quitting video games for the first few weeks. I recommend just journaling your thoughts, asking for help, seeking a therapist, and actively moving forward.
