Day 4 :

Spent the day mostly tending to neglected yardwork.  Got a whole lot done, which I feel good about.

I did have issues regulating my mood after I admitted some invasive thoughts/daydreams.  After some food, time, and defusing a minor argument with my S.O., I felt better.

Hey Tr1v, seems like you're doing pretty well already, I'm so happy for you! What did you listen to? I'm just curious, I've never listened or read philosophy much, more of a psychology guy.

Thanks, I'm hopeful.

Day 7

Maybe had a little too much caffeine in my system last night.  Binge watched a "slow" sci-fi series to help me fall asleep.  Almost saw the sun come up this morning.  Paying for it today.

Day 10

Much easier day at the office (always easy when no one is around).  There is no need to worry about things that is out of our control.  We can accomplish many things by simply focusing on what is in our control.

Day 12

Working from home this week.  So far, no urges to play anything.  Pretty much scrubbed all gaming media and marketing from my digital life.  Have replaced gaming with Sci-Fi shows so I'm working on reeling it back.  Reddit usage has been up esp. since I redownloaded the app.  Will focus on dedicated programming practice today in between housework.

Reddit is my worse timewaster, so addictive and most of the info is second rate at best. The website is still ugly even after a decade of improvements. The content is nowhere near as good as other things I could consume to waste my time like shows or books. I found that any news I wanted on reddit could be found on twitter, any tech problems I had could be answered by youtube or stack exchange, any recommendations for books or shows could be found on goodreads or imdb, any art or pictures were better on instagram. And yet no matter how mediocre reddit is, it's still so addictive, I feel cravings and it wants to pull me back in. Annoying.

Same thing happens to me, not just with reddit but with all social media. I noticed If I download Facebook, i get distracted, Twitter, distracted, Snapchat, distracted. It's a loop. I hope you are able to decrease your reddit use and focus on what's important because really, the social media that we have used is like living a second life being a different version of yourself as you can create this perfect image of who you are, which I have seen a lot. It's disgusting.
