Okay, so for the past few days I really enjoyed reflecting more about my life, and posting daily updates through my journal. I believe, what I like about NF, is that it provides me with a supportive community while letting me keep my anonymity at the same time. I noticed being held accountable helps me be more responsible and better stick with my goals. It makes me feel like I am part of something bigger, and it makes me wanna be a good example/model for the rest of the community here. So I decided to expand on my previous journal, and add another one about my journey through self actualization. I got inspired by a video made by Leo (who also has a lot of content on sexual well-being). Although I consider myself relatively self accomplished, it made me realize just how much I was missing on my true potential/becoming the best version of my-self. So I decided to give it a go. But not like every other time, where I get hyper motivated in the beginning and then start losing interest for the next couple days. I decided to be a bit more systematic, about this, and since I was having progress with my previous journal, I will be setting up a few simple rules for myself and updating my progress in here. I've been trying to keep a private journal in the past, however I think I will be more consistent and thoughtful with a public one. Unfortunately, this would mean that I would leave out some of the details, and be somewhat vague on purpose. However, I plan to make some very clear rules for myself, and post my daily progress in here for at least 7 days, at least every other day for the next month, and once a week for the next year. Some of the challenges I will be taking over: (a) Taking cold showers everyday. (b) Going to sleep before 2 am (for now). (c) Shutting off my internet/electronics 30 min before sleep. (d) Meditating/planning my day for >10 min every morning. (e) Doing at least 3 things from my daily to do list. (f) Have at least 3 daily 1.5h uninterrupted session where I do productive work. (g) Posting an update here before sleep. (h) Waking up early in the mornings(TBDL). (i) Limiting my social media use(TBDL). (j) Exercising at least twice a week(TBDL). (k) Spending more time educating myself(TBDL). (l) Updating this list with more relevant rules as I deem necessary to improve myself. *TBDL = to be defined latter. Some of those rules are abstract, so I will have to make them more clear over time. Lets see how this will go.
