Hey what’s up all! So just thought I’d post in here incase someone was motivated to do something similar to what I’m doing! After many days wondering why I find it hard to find satisfaction in the small things anymore I realised I have a big problem with overstimulation In my day to day life. From the moment I wake up my day is loaded with overstimulation. Whether it’s binging on fast food till I feel sick, spending 3-4 hours on social media a day, drinking 15-20 alcoholic drinks a night (every day for the last 3 months) smoking weed, cigarettes, porn, or doing multiple of these things at once I realised, how am I suppose to be stimulated by day to do day things when I flood my body with stimulation all day every day. So I made a list of all the ways I stimulate my body in unhealthy ways and have decided to do a 30 day challenge where I will replace all the bad habits Alcohol, drugs, porn, excess tv, excess caffeine, excess time on social media or food overconsumption with healthy ones, these include exercise, reading, small amounts of meditation a day, mindful minutes, a 30 day eating plan and exercise plan to follow. I’ve created a spreadsheet where I will log how I feel on a scale from 0-10 in 10 different categories that include, energy, withdrawal symptoms, sleep, exercise, eating, how good I was with my finances, stress levels, libido, and mood. I will grade them all everyday for 30 days to see if removing negative stimulations has an effect on me and to see if there’s any links between them. For example, on days I am higher in stress do I eat more? Or when I don’t sleep well am I less likely to exercise etc. A long side this I will be taking one progress photo everyday to see the physical differences in my body to match up with the data above. So my data tracker is set up, my plans are ready and I’ve done my best to remove temptations, there’s no alcohol in my house, I’ve deleted social media apps etc and I’ve posted here and notified my friends of what I’m doing so I’m more likely to hold myself accountable. I’m looking forward to logging my results and with any luck someone on this forum might find motivation from my findings to help them in their lives. We are all here to support and be supported so I’m trying to do my bit! Wish me luck brothers, this next 30 days is going to get real weird and interesting Thanks for reading on ya’ll!
