Somebody post financebrah's (RIP) copypasta
i've started keeping a semi regular diary. all kinds of reflective and introspective mental gains are to be had, especially if you type things out and just let your thoughts flow and see where your mind takes you.
>want to start a reflective diary
>do one entry, feel like a massive faggot and sto
>end up throwing out diary so noone sees what a faggot i am
i guess the first step to my own self improvement is to not give a shit what anyone thinks
I might do this as well. There's so much stuff that gets lost in the flawed function of our memory. Not necessarily a diary, just quick notes of the day, maybe write down when and what you changed up. I used to hate the idea, but when gorillions of people are attention whoring with their life events on social media, it puts things into perspective.
you could always not write about stupid shit. in the beginning i just wrote about my surface feelings which basically comprised of me moping about how lazy and unfulfilled i felt in all my endeavors, a good portion of them being my lack of a sex life. then i realized that was fucking stupid and now i just write about stuff i've encountered recently and how i feel about it.
other important note: social media is all an outward performance that's supposed to show how awesome you are to others while a diary is written with no intention of sharing, so it let's you be really honest with yourself in a way that you don't really get to be that often. when it works, it's like having a really sobering conversation with a friend, but you're just conversing with your own thoughts.
How do I leave 4chan and other Internet forums before I develop any more dysmorphia or insecurities? I've pretty much got physical health down thanks to /fit/, but I'm still a mess mentally.
Social hobbies are always a great way to get natty mental gains.
If you feel you're genuinely a bit of a mess, getting psychological therapy might help.
Seriously, most people are to afraid or ashamed to get help with physical butt issues or mental issues.
Why does this program recommend eating little before your workout and lots after? If you're eating your entire daily intake in a ~3 hr window, why not do 50/50 so you have enough energy to work out?
pre-workout won't give you the energy that a healthy meal or even just a protein shake will give you. PWO is good for pump and "explosive energy" but good luck completing 3+ sets of heavy squats on an empty stomach.
So lately I had a very introspective, mind opening, """euphoric""" ephinany while in one of the worst spots of my life i've experience. And now I legitimately feel fantastic everyday, happy, vibrant, etc.
Actively going soul searching is a good idea, I go on walks for leasure, ofc many people here dont have the time, but try and fit in a 2-3 hour walk at least once a week in a nice cinematic spot, with good music and weather, and its so mind clearing and opening and relaxing, its honestly my favourite leasure activity to do.
More than gettinn fuucckkeedd uppp n foookiinnnn slooootzzz (Virgin but handstuff is fun...)
Basically what I'm saying is in this tangent is, I've seen it all, been through it all, and its hard, nearly impossible, but once you manage to learn the true ability of being able to let go, and just move on, and remember that yesterday is gone, you will truly be happy.
Living with depression is like driving down a hellish lonely road with many hills. There are going to be many ups and downs and a lot of bleakness. Imagine something you could control was what car you're driving. You could be driving a shitty ford ranger that's run down and has no air conditioning or you could be driving a Bugatti. If I was on a road like that I'd definitely rather be in the Bugatti for two reasons which are that I know that I achieved it by myself and that fuck it's a Bugatti.
The way I wrote that out might be confusing and I apologize because I'm not a good writer but what I'm trying to say is going through depression is significantly better when you have or are achieving the body you want. Your body is the only thing on this planet you truly own so make the best out of it no matter what because if you don't workout due to depression you'll only dig yourself deeper. One day you'll get out of this rut Anon and you'll be proud that even when you had the weight of the world on your shoulders you didn't fold. Do not stop lifting. If anything go harder.
Actually another thing is switch things up. If you're a smaller guy that stays lean try and bulk. If you're heavier and like to be huge, try and become lean.
Not that guy, but I'm realizing more social stimulation really makes me happy. I've been borderline NEETmode for like 3 years since high school, wondering why I'm stuck in this cycle. If I had more friends i'd start hitting my stride in life probably
I'd stay on the fitness tip no matter what.
Listen to your body, take time off whatever your usual schedule is and rest, or do things that relieved your stress or just makes you happy in general, don't tackle life if your mind and body aren't rested
Just signed up to the gym and did my first cardio day in months and months.
What are some good training regimes for basically a gym newfag because my fitness as pretty much reset to where I started because I was a lazy fuck throughout autumn and winter.
Invaluable resource for motivation here:
I quit running in the morning just because I felt cold.
Finallyg deleted 3D porn off phone, 2D will be hard, if not impossible though.
Starting to get more sociable, but I think that has led to some downfalls with myself.
Not studying like I should be.

I just want this off my chest.
I was searching in myself why I am procrastinating with almost everything. I maybe found the answer.
It's my computer.
I always sit on it, game, surfing trough the internet looking at bullshit. Shit is addicting, its toxic. I need to stop using my computer much. Maybe other people should do the same thing.
If you really want self improvement don't be fooled into buying something like
100% because it's good and is presented with authority. Don't change your life because of a list of rules you read somewhere on the net. Let your life be a reflection of you see yourself fitting the world, and go with that.
A lot of self help sounds great until you think about what you would be like if you followed all of it. Often, you'd be a robot with no sense of humor or personality.
After you stop using your computer you'll notice how often you've got your eyes glued to your phone. There really is no escape from the screen monsters.
Shit, /fit/, what have you done to me?
Im just lazy to name it as a date each time.
so fuck you
I'm in the middle of quitting weed. The addiction was real. I'm feeling like pure shit today but I'll be grateful later. Hopefully it doesn't take me too long to be able to eat sober, I haven't been able to eat jackshit today
>tfw 5'9 168 pounds and have been a fatass forever
>still think I'm a fatass so I continue to cut despite having 0 fucking muscle
>FInally calcualte my BF% via YMCA method, navy method, and two different skin fold caliper equations.
>12% BF desptie being super soft/flabby, having a HUMONGOUS ASS and a FAT FUCKING FACE.
>Begin to bulk at +200 calories to try and actually gain muscle, I assume I'm 15% since there is no way those methods are accurate
>174 lbs after only a week.
>Already am visibly fatter in my stomach and extremely fatter in my face
>Binged yesterday at +1000 TDEE because snow storm depression
>On top of all of this I have an ugly face and extremely disproportionate fat ass/thighs/waist comparred to my extremely flabby and underdeveloped upper body.
At least I'm making progress on my weights, but I'm still pushing baby weights with only 260 Deadlift and 155 Bench.
Its as though whichever route I choose, whether it be slow bulk or cut, I either get too fat or make absolutely no gains which I need because of my lack of muscle/strength.
JUST KILL ME
>le 48 laws of power
I have this bookmarked. Also been meaning to do pic related. My life has been a depressed void of passion or anything productive so I'm trying to figure my shit out.
Alright perfect thread,how the hell do I get up from sleeping?
I sometimes wake up randomly feeling not sleepy and awake but I end up closing my eyes and fall back asleep. Then when I wake up later, I stay in bed trying to wake up.

One cannot improve themselfs without 2 digits in a row.
This is getting out of hand.
Trust me it hurts more on this end.
I will never stop this crusade until repeating integers.
This is now a Jason Genova thread.. GO!
Well guys, this thread is a success. I got my dubs. Self improvement indeed.
wew lad, what would we do without u
This is now a Jason Genova thread.. GO!
I've been keeping a weekly journal. One entry where I look back at the previous week, one where I look forward and write about my plans and goals for the next week. Can't tell whether it's actually helping or not.
Go to bed earlier, and make sure you're getting sunlight in the morning.
ITS PISS BB, NUTHIN BUT A PEENIS!!! NATURE BOI RIC FLARE WOOOOHHH!!!!!
Motivation for all you gildings!!! Pisstroopers unite order 66!!!
holy shit that's a brilliant way to put it.
this is basically teaching you how to be a fucking cheap Jew hippie that nobody will enjoy being around.
and damn, lol'd at 'ask a girl out in a way that she can't say no' 53. if she's not interested, it ain't gonna stick. asking her out doesn't have to be fancy you limp wristed faggot.
give yourself some time off from your computer, but understand it isn't the be all end all of ending procrastination.
I've tried blocking sites like 4chan in the past, and it just led to me wasting time listening to music or watching TV as a replacement.
I can understand that, but its getting more like an addiction now. When I wake up, I get on my computer till lunch, then do a little bit of stuff and go back to my computer till around 23:00.
Moderation isn't that bad, but it is getting out of hand for me.
go single for a while and focus the energy you spent on her on yourself.
I'm assuming you met her in the past when you were in a worse off position. you caught up and she stayed behind.
it's time to increase your mental, physical, and social status. When you do find another partner, she'll be at a more equal level to yourself then your present gf.
