For me it really helps to focus and organize my thoughts, I found having a down time was very good for me and really help recharge. Alternatively, walking outside can also help

I wouldn’t block it 100% right off the bat or you might get in the habit of unblocking and lose respect for the system.

What browser do you use on your desktop/laptop?

Most of what will be recommended will have to displace time spent doing other things. What do you want to be doing less of? How much time could that feasibly account for?

@Charlie I spend quite a bit of time, maybe 2-3 hours a day, just sitting in my room browsing Facebook or Manifold without really interacting - i.e. doing nothing much. I guess it's possible I need that as rest time, but I seem to cope well when I don't have time for it. It could certainly be more purposeful.

@Charlie Or Reddit, only on my phone since I haven't found a good way of blocking it there. And I hate Facebook and Reddit - it's a really bad habit.

Where are you at with the following?: yoga, exercise, general activity levels, meditation/mindfulness, journaling, therapy, music making, improv classes, socialization, keeping in touch with long-distance friends/family, diet, sleep

@Charlie Yoga: never tried Exercise: 50 pushups/situps 3 times a week, 2 2km runs and a 3km run every week, have to walk almost everywhere - turning this up would count Meditation/mindfulness: tried it a few years ago and found it helped, then fell off the wagon - if I try it again that would count Journalling: same as meditation/mindfulness Therapy: never tried Music making: haven't played an instrument in like 10 years, haven't written any music in about a year and a half - either would count Improv classes: used to go regularly, haven't in a while, but I will have rehearsals for a couple of plays I'm doing (one as an actor and one as a writer/director) - would count Socialisation: I keep to myself a lot more than I'd like. I always enjoy hanging out with my friends but only do so every month or so, maybe? I have a board game night coming up on the 20th and my birthday on the 12th and just had back-to-back event weekends, so I guess it's trending up. I almost never organise anything though, so that would definitely count Keeping in touch with long-distance friends/family: I'm absolutely useless at this and feel like I'm losing friends because of it. I find it weirdly aversive and anxiety-inducing to talk to people online, especially if I initiate, so anything that helps me break out of that would not only count but get a big tip Diet: currently vegan and taking B12, omega-3, iron, vitamin D and creatine supplements. I usually have cereal and a protein/berry smoothie for breakfast, something heated up in the microwave for lunch, and some kind of homemade curry/soup for dinner Sleep: usually stay up until about 1:30/2 and sleep until 9:30/10. Pretty late but also pretty consistent

Do you regularly tell people you enjoy spending time with that you enjoy spending time with them?

@BionicD0LPH1N I do so almost every time after we hang out, but I don’t think I’d call that regular
