    I want to live.

    Maybe have a look at the stuff from Cal Newport. I would recommend reading "Deep Work" before "Digital Minimalism". There is an Easyway book by Allen Carr for this topic as well, which I am reading at the moment "Smart Phone, Dumb Phone".

    Is a social media presence helpful in dating and worth the distraction that comes with it?

    So I have been using IG for a few days now. In the beginning the novelty really pulled me in. But, with a bit of effort and self control, I managed to spent just around 20 mins per day on IG and try to have those in the evening after my workday is finished.

    Learning to treat myself well

    Days no PMO: 6 Day no MO: 2 Days Digital Minimalism: 0 Maybe one thing about the deep work hours: I track those hours I sit concentrated and really do study.

    Hei @SmokenMirrors and @Blondie thank you so much for your support these days! It means a lot to me! :) I guess, because it worked that good yesterday, I will do the same today. These tasks will move me forward today - they are the most important and I will do them before all the other stuff...

    Learning to treat myself well

    Overall I am happy with the day - it was a step in the right direction and its kind of logically, that I can't go from zero holiday mode back to my best study form. So here is what I accomplished of the goals: Workout in the morning ✅ Take cold shower after that ✅ 5 hours of deep work...

    Learning to treat myself well

    Yesterday was a better day. I slept quite long, then lost an hour to IG but got my ass up and went to the canteen. There I met a few fellow students, it was great to have some social interaction. After that I went home and cleaned my flat. I did a very great job and liked the result. Then I...

    Great attitude you are in! I think the aggression is normal - I feel it as well in the beginning of a longer clean period. But it will pass and you will feel so much pleasure from normal things :) Keep going and starve the little monster!

    Learning to treat myself well

    Sooo... well. I could have had an awesome day yesterday. I went climbing in the mountains with my friends and we also saw two Capricons like 10 m away from us. They just stood there, totally relaxed and ate their grass. But I came home super exhausted and watched a documentary on YT while I...
