A small 47-day life overhaul Star this Commitment
Week 7 of 7

mark100pudov commits to:
To clear my mind for 45 days by not reading any article from the self-help genre (books of any kind are allowed for now), not visiting any site at all for other than work-related or urgent matters. A movie or two a week are allowed too. New York Times articles for the language learning purposes are allowed. Likewise, a twenty-minute daily session of meditation is a must.

A fourth good week. Not perfect but pretty good still.

Not perfect, but another good week with consistent meditation and no web browsing of any of the websites I used to spend incredible amount on time at.

Still, too much unrelated small stuff, though seemingly important, occasional checking. I am not sure what to do about it. It seems so urgent at times, though it almost never is. I guess I have to stop it for good during my days. Therefore, I will add another STRICT rule:

I can only check anything at all online if I intend to seriously sit and finish it through in one sitting or at least start it as a project with a long one sitting. Or I can batch less important stuff for short checks to be dealt with when I am least productive, like some time in the evening. What hour? When? Lets say not earlier than six o'clock in the evening. Possibly later.

What about Viber and checking N's whereabouts or simply opening it again and again to feel less lonely and deal with the overwhelming urge to do that (perhaps, for some other reason)? What am I to do about it? I am not sure. It isn't good, but I guess it would be hard to give it up now. I'll let myself think about this one another week.

To clarify several things where I've slipped somewhat so far:
- New York Times articles can only be read on my Mac. To the very least, on my Android but only after 7pm.
- The next step after completing this one would be to stop reading all self-help books altogether--only something that can take me further with my financial plans.
- Likewise, I am to do something with recurring urges to check something related to my health or psyche if only for a short while. This is against my commitment and even though it's been extremely limited, it is still something to be aware of. So, I will move it all first to a reminder and then to after 7pm.
