I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I started dabbling with NoSurf a few months ago and although my addiction is far from broken, I feel a huge difference in my mood and motivation. This summer, I was studying for part 2 (of 3) medical boards exams so NoSurf was really important to help me stay on track. I’m happy to report that I got my score this week and I did well
That said, I’m in a bit of a bind. Now that I don’t have this exam to study for anymore, my motivation to stick to NoSurf is basically gone. I still have studying to do, for rotations, but I find myself wasting most of my free time streaming Netflix or messing around on Youtube. To make things worse, my roommate just bought a Roku TV so it’s not like I can just put my laptop or phone away. And it’s not like I can cancel my wi-fi because he uses it constantly. I like the idea of being forced to go to the library or a cafe to access the Internet.
Any advice? I liked what @Anthymn said in an earlier post about using blockers to build her own self-discipline. I wasted a lot of time trying to devise a “bulletproof” blocking system for all my devices but to be honest if I am determined to procrastinate I will find a way. I would love any suggestions that lead me in that direction so that I’m not dependent on ColdTurkey forever.
Thanks dudes! Keep calm and NoSurf on
