    So basically the 30 days are all over...
    Here's what I have improved

    Results and improvements
    My habit bull score for power ups this month was 37%
    Last month it was 24% so yeah improvement more to do


    - I have amazing streak on nofap

    - in the end i was productive (5+ hours at studies)

    - I start waking up early (5am)

    - I sometimes pray 5 times a day.. Fajr feels fantastic :)


    -I ruminate less (even though I still ruminate)

    Personal development
    -I blocked my toxic friends ( except 3 which I will soon)

    -I am quite assertive and told a guy who approached me and used to spam me with calls and msg that i don't want to be with him and told him real reason.. I wasn't feeling codependent. I felt liberated and strong..

    But if I want best results my everyday has to be 100% and in 30 days I will get a gift that is I will be mentally healed.. Wow.. :)


    So introducing

    Chapter 2 self improvement...
    This will focus on steak and giving the best everyday.
    It will have different power ups so yeah!

    Well a lot of motivational youtube :)
    It is like sacrifice now reward later
    When I started I was in a very terrible place my mind was hell but I wanted to get out badly I knew the only way out of hell was through the hell and I tried very hard
    Meditated every day almost 30 minutes Etc etc
    I used to write a journal in my personal diary where I used to sketch out motivational quotes and speeches (even quotes on nofap) then I wrote what universal man said in his youtube channel.. I really appreciate his work regarding NoFap and productivity..
    Accountability really helped..
    My life was drowning in negative feedback loop all I did was one thing at a time and that resulted in positive feedback loop
    It is good to know that..
    I really want this journal to be inspirational and to show anything is possible.. I will start phase two in which I will try my hardest soon

    "Self improvement" - - level 2( part 1)

    After my level one was 37% successful and my mental health has greatly improved.. And i reached my 1 year best streak..
    I am more committed than ever to work rigorously towards towards practicing my power up and some new healthy habits
    And see the amazing transformation..
    I am feeling very good at this moment I feel like my 30 days of improvement had been successful obviously it not 100%, it is far less but now I am no more like a stagnant water.. I do have some momentum to push myself in positive direction

    Good news:
    1)I ditched all my toxic unsupportive friends and I feel so so so happy.. They weren't there in my weak point and now I ain't there for them when they need me.. Tit for tat.. I got my closure

    Regarding that guy well I think about him less and I kinda cherish positive lessons that experience taught me.. It bought to surface all the issues I had underneath since my childhood and Alhumdulillah I worked on every single issue with the help of YouTube videos and self improvement books.. Like I had issues with being codependent, empathic, non assertive, putting others needs before mine, now I am very mature I really am grateful for that and it wasn't possible if that experience wasn't there .. So Alhumdulillah for everything

    "it may be that you hate a thing which is good for you.. God knows and you do not " - quran

    Self improvement" - - level 2....(part 2)
    So basically here is my new and strict routine..and this indeed is going to be the hardest to follow but most rewarding routine.. So here we go...

    Target 1: MENTAL
    1) MEDITATION
    - breathing exercise
    - guided meditation
    - timed meditation
    - strictly to be practiced in morning

    2)READING SELF IMPROVEMENT BOOKS /WATCHING VIDEOS (new)
    - these can be related to nofap as well or treatment of OCD /Ruminating /maladaptive daydream/Ptsd and I have to share the insight here that way anyone reading this could be inspired ( if he /she is struggling with same issues).. Or it can be regarding religion

    -LIMIT RUMINATING THOUGHT/MALADAPTIVE DAYDREAMS TO LESS THAN 5% EACH (ie not more than 1 hour)
    (this is going to be a tough challenge but I learned from OCD /Ptsd recovery group treat your intrusive thoughts like addiction go cold turkey till your brain doesn't bother you with them anymore)

    TARGET 2: PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
    - workout in morning
    - stretches in evening (optional)
    - balancing exercise
    - cold showers (in morning)
    - waking up at 5 am

    Target 3: SPRITUALITY
    -5 prayers on time
    - quran every day

    -TARGET 4: PRODUCTIVITY
    - 5 hours study mandatory
    - Spanish learning from duolingo
    - clean my room.
    - cook the food ( occasionally) or make morning tea/coffee

    Date of implementation :26 August 2020
    Date of declaration of results :28 September 2020


    App use to track progress percentage :habit bull/habit tracker

    Won't disappoint you
    Your journal and your remarkable consistency also is very motivational to me... You are doing amazing.. I live to read your progress as well:)..

    Amen sister.
    It is true cutting out toxic friends /crush etc is very very difficult but it is most rewarding it is very much worth it.. When you have nothing to drag you down you are all set to fly...
    Wish you best in your journey as well :)

    Don't disappoint yourself first. You're times more important than some random dude on the internet.
