Is it possible to get out of this slump? I'm 28 with so many ambitions and dreams but i can never start myself and tomorrow never comes. I've been procrastinating for over 10 years.

Start small. The old saying “the heaviest weight at the gym is the door” is true. If you want to exercise, start with a walk, or drive to a gym but don’t even go in. Just building the habit of starting is a start.

If you want to write, write a paragraph. Read? Read a page. The important thing is that you start.

You need to eliminate EVERYTHING that gives your brain more dopamine than the activity you need to do. I always procrastinated because watching YouTube or playing video games was way more fun than actually doing what I needed to do. So one day, I finally had enough of wasting my life with useless activities, unplugged my ps4, deleted youtube on every device I have and installed a blocker on my pc. I know this seems extreme, but for people like me this seems to be the only thing that works.

This is litterally a concept to naturally counter depression. It’s called a Dopamine Detox. There’s youtube videos on it. And if you do it, it really really sucks. But that suckiness is actually often what everyone needs to appreciate the other stuff around them more.

I got addicted to TikTok last year and deleted it after nearly 12 months of nonstop use, because I finally realized I'd unintentionally quit my hobbies. I stopped doing them cause scrolling for laughs was far easier of a dopamine hit. And it sucked at first but now I'm back at things and won't ever touch that damn app again. My friends roll their eyes when I insist it's causing some of their depression, but it's very true. Don't whine that you're not doing anything with your life while also sitting on the couch scrolling all night long on your phone.

Facebook is designed to trick your brain into scrolling more and more, just to see /one/ more post before you log off, and has been like that for over a decade at this point. Most other social media apps have followed the same formula in their own styles, and tik tok is just the latest and most optimised form of this parasitic design. Well done on getting out of it though!


Autumnlove92 t1_iwrr40u wrote

Yep saw myself doing this with FB and after being on it from 2006-2015, I quit and deleted my shit. Never been happier, too. Especially since I abandoned ship before it became PoliticalBook

This is what I'm currently doing with nsfw stuffs, blocking it with a dns and app blockers using a random password, which I send to my BFF, i even thought ahead and blocked every reddit app on the app store besides infinity app which can block nsfw stuffs forever. Also blocked twitter and changed my instagram to a really long random string of 64 letters. Sometimes you just need to take drastic actions towards yourself, what works for others won't necessarily work for you.


nhnsn t1_iwpv4or wrote

limit the technology use! I never was as happy as when my phone broke and I went 2 months without it. Of course, today a phone is pretty much a must for a lot of things, but try to keep its use at a mininum

Pick something that you actually care about instead of just wanting to perform for the sake of performing.


alertthenorris t1_iwqvgo1 wrote

Start with the gym, anything that gets you outside. Now, playing video games isn't wrong, your body needs time to wind down. The whole wake up at 4am everyday and work 23 hours a day shit is bad. If you can go out and enjoy life, you can also stay home on a sunday and play some video games. Learn a new skill for when you're in a youtube binge like learning a language. I hate that playing games and enjoying some twitch is seen as bad, it's only bad if that's all you do. Your body needs to move and it needs to relax just as much.

Just do it. Short term gratification wont solve long term problems. Easy things or enjoyable things aren't worthwhile. Rewarding things aren't enjoyable for the most part.


rosetacks t1_iwr0yu1 wrote

Like everyone else said, start small. I've made the mistake of jumping all in to something just because I was excited, and then when the newness of the activity went away I got burnt out.

So I started waaay smaller. For example, I read about 6 pages a day of my security + study guide book, and I've kept at it for over a month now. This is largely because, for me and my life circumstances, 6 pages a day is far more achievable than 40 (avg. chapter size).

How do you beat this? I literally do this every week and it makes me feel like shit and just go back to the same routine that ive been living with for the past 3 years.


Autumnlove92 t1_iwq3y56 wrote

It takes 3 weeks to quit a habit, and 3 weeks to build a new one. Start there. Add another week after that. You gotta push yourself forward. It doesn't happen immediately, it takes work.


Nyclab t1_iwopvbt wrote

What to do instead tho?


[deleted] t1_iwp9uqq wrote

Make smaller, incremental changes consistently until they become habits.

For example: if you're horribly messy, instead of implementing an unrealistic cleaning regime - start by making your bed as soon as you get out of bed. Once that's a habit, add the next step to your routine.

foreverlearner101010 t1_iwqdfkk wrote

A good middle ground if you feel like you’ve wasted your day is to ask yourself “what can I do right now for a better tomorrow?” And don’t feel like there’s anything wrong with you if you do end up shifting responsibility to your future self. We all do it, some more than others.
