Reminder that self improvement can be a form of procrastination from doing the things you actually need to do in life. Do your fucking work you lazy faggots then you can start reading/meditating and other gay shit where you trick yourself into thinking your being productive.

You will waste time "at work" if you don't have at least your body and mind in order. Self improvement breeds efficiency and efficacy. That being said, if "your work" is in line with your goals, then you should do that first. Eat the biggest, ugliest frog first thing in the morning.

Replying from last thread

>>48292311
If you've read Nietszche, you would probably recognize those ludic attitudes in relation with the last metamorphoses of the spirit (i.e., from lion into a child). You want to turn things with your freedom and play with them, and naturally you're attracted to something that has that marketing engineered into luring people who also want to play. You probably get bored easily because, at the end, either the game designed sucked, or, most likely, you want to play with things that bring a more tangible reward and challenge than those on virtual realms.

My suggestion to you is not to ditch your need to play with things, but to embrace them. Have you tried gamification methods or apps (like Habitica)? Make your life the game you'd like to play every day, and keep using regular games as the mini-games that help make the storyline less tedious.

It would also be wise to analyze yourself and see what is it that seems so attractive about those games to you -- is it the graphics, the story line, the characters, the female characters, the music?

>>48292531
I guess it was a typo and you meant "stiff neck". Try self massaging and also visit a chiropractor.

>>48292795
If you want to make friends go to a bar, a disco, or some sort of other place. Attend college to learn stuff. Even if you feel lonely there, I'm pretty sure you could go to counseling and they will not deny you the time to hear you out. But also, altough harsh, you will probably not get real friends there, as neither do most of us. If you want real friends, you can always come back to these threads... more real than the fake instagram-filled smiles you will find there.

>then you can start reading/meditating and other gay shit
I do that. My problem is I don't work out at all. I work 8-12 hour days 6 days a week. The law recently changed in my country so every 3 hours spent sitting down we are now required by law to get up and walk around for half an hour, so every day I'm going to get between 1-2 hours paid to walk around on top of standard breaks.

Can you guys give me a little regiment I can do during that time off? I can't leave my work but I can bring in dumbbells. Is it true that the best workout you can do for fitness is the highest weight possible? So highest weight till fail? I don't care about building muscle I care about being healthy and doing it in the shortest time possible... I've read that something like push ups are totally shit when compared to curls etc?

I'm not a fitness guy obviously. Pic related the books I read. Halp pls guys I'm wasting away sitting down all day.

>be me
>27 and pretty handsome
>saved myself for marriage
>blind first date with a 22 y/o immigrant girl from Eastern Europe and she's a 9/10 (no exaggeration)
>also religious (orthodox) and seems extremely innocent

I waited till marriage for religious reasons and I suspect she might be in the same boat. If she turns out to still be a virgin I'm thinking of accelerating the relationship and proposing relatively soon down the line. I know it may sound stupid but I'm ok with marrying a stranger more-or-less if she has self respect for herself like I've had for myself she can't be all that bad. Love can develop and already did on the first date.

Am I an idiot?

1) I have a general direction, but i'm finding more to add on to it
2) I've been cooking pretty well and eating clean, except for today, call it a cheat day, a sort of mini family reunion at grandma's
3) Doing alright, improving my current friendships and working on turning more acquaintances into friends. Mentioned the mini senpai reunion. Saw my aunt, i don't see her often but she's one of the most supportive people from dad's side of the family. She's very cool and i should hang out with her more.
4) Knowing greatness awaits me and being aware of where i started and how far i've come, the road is very long, much longer than it appears, but i've come far.

It's not , the mole is very superficial so a small burn will destroy it , then it will scar and look like regular skin

Can’t believe it guys but I couldn’t cum with this girl last week. I did eventually finish but it was well past that point where she was done... usually have no problems when jerking off. Porns only like once a week or every other week when I fap.... I honestly thought I would be that guy that finishes in minutes but well fuck I felt bad. Is this possibly anxiety? I felt pretty comfortable the whole time just couldn’t finish in her.


Hopefully getting another chance this weekend so I haven’t fapped at all since then and honestly I’m hoping to finish within 10 mins or faster, I’ll just pause until I’m good again if she needs to get finished as well.

You guys got any tips to finish or general sex tips?

I feel like life has improved when I stopped tracking my calories. I’m (fairly) young, muscular frame, and lift 5-6 days a week. Calorie counting became obsessive and kind of pathetic really. Instead I just pay attention to what I eat and quit sperging about it. Friends want to go out to a buffet, then I go out to a buffet. I just eat one plate instead of 3, and include some vegetables. I make sure to get enough protein and don’t eat straight garbage and life has been much more enjoyable, and my physique has still been improving

What should I treat myself with if I'm on a cut and don't want to eat trash? Salmon soup?

You all seem to be tripping over yourselves to preserve the very system that is so broken that it forced you to have to do all this crap in the first place.

I feel like I'm becoming a bit sociopathic. A good amount of my goals revolve around social life, and Im slowly starting to make progress on them, but I'm a bit robotic. Like Ill kind of just see people as opportunities to be friends, and I guess Im kind of just trying to "collect" friends without even really enjoying the friendship or anything actually like a genuine friendship. Its difficult to express, but its just so robotic.
I think its because Ive been isolated for so long, and I still kind of am, yeah Im making progress but its early days.

Any ideas of how I can stop being like this? Im trying to limit my time alone, and make sure I dont listen to this kind of side of me, not plan too far ahead that sort of thing.
>>
>>48301268
You can get around it by actually looking into politics, like reading normal news outlets, learning and reading about politics. History is a good one too for /pol/tards trying to recover.

What stopped me was becoming burnt out. I just got sick and tired of the constant bullshit. I remember not wanting to listen to Yanks constantly bitch about race, so I put some filters on, and literally 30 threads at any given time. After a few weeks of that I kind of saw the scope of it all, how fucking obsessed everyone was and not only that but how pointless it all was.

The best way to become not racist is just to talk to real life people who are of the races you hate too.
>>
>>48301355
>and I guess Im kind of just trying to "collect" friends without even really enjoying the friendship or anything actually like a genuine friendship. Its difficult to express, but its just so robotic.

The good thing is, you see the problem and are looking top fix it. So, just try and appreciate people for exactly who they are. Don't judge them, see them as they are and be ok with that. Get to know them more, ask them questions about themselves, give them, advice, and then tell them more about yourself, your work, your life, your hopes and dreams, stuff that bothers you, etc.

You got this anon.

My shoulders are defiantly my weakest link. What can i do to fix them? My shoulders used to hurt back before i started working out on and off again, and they hurt in my first year of doing so. I think this is due to a sedentary life, my right shoulder used to hurt a lot.
Now that i've been taking it seriously, i'm extremely happy with how my strength increased. But my shoulders are still disproportionately weak.
Would adding another shoulder day just lead to overuse injury?
What exercises, and rep ranges should i do? How easy or hard should the load be?

My life is just completely over. I will be 27 in under a month and my life is a completely worthless, pathetic joke. Literally everything you could think of when you think of a loser, I will have. I'm completely hopeless, I don't even have the faintest hint that I will ever become even close to a modicum of normality. I can barely even interact with other people and if people here saw my interactions with coworkers, etc they would probably shudder, and with all this I'm somehow supposed to have the motivation to improve myself. I'm too afraid to even talk to people because I'm so humiliated about my life that I don't even want to let people enter it.

I should have taken anti-depressants or anti-anxiety meds or ritalin or attended therapy or something when I was going into college which maybe could have helped. Now it's all over, the only thing I have to look forward to in my life is when I finally get the balls to kill myself

Good luck to people here on their quests.

2 Days of accidental nofap completed, and now I'm committing to carrying it on as long as I can. Wrote a really great song for my band this week, now waiting on the singer to write lyrics to it. Was able to hit bench. My Lat injury is mostly recovered. Going to take it easy for a bit again, though. It wasn't perfect. Been doing a supplement stack that I think is going to help my T levels a lot. Been supplementing Iodine, and finally have protein for protein shakes again. It's going good.

Confirmed didn't read the bell-curve. The people of the races you're advocating interacting with are going to inevitably from your general social status, and this is mostly outside your control, and it will taint your perspectives on the world in a way that national statistics do not.

Started making my own food on days when previously I would crave takeaways.
Not super healthy, but far healthier than binge eating processed shit.

Here's a good pizza dough recipe to stop you getting (((takeaway))):
250g bread flour
5g salt
1g yeast
175ml warm water
0.5 tbsp olive oil
Mix together until all mixed, dont knead, and leave for about 24 hours. 2 hours before use, separate dough into two balls and leave to proof again.
Really makes an amazing dough.

Anybody got some good recipes to share? Need some more a bit more health-conscious.

Should add that recipe makes 2 pizzas, as lont as you keep the ingredient ratios the same you can make as many or few as you want

how important is consistency on intermittent fasting?
consider these scenarios:
>breaking and starting the fast at variable times (eating at 13 and 19 instead of 12 and 20 50% of the time)

>Are you finding your direction in life, or are you still searching?

I believe I've found a calling in teaching martial arts. My dojo is growing rapidly and sustaining a healthy student body.

> We talked about diet and cooking last week, how did you guys fare this week? Will you cook more, and eat more nutritiously? You should.

Been eating with my dad every night. Home cooked meals. For lunch at work it's either a salad or chicken.


> How are your social gains going? Less >no gf feels and more setting a good example for others.

Have a date tonight, kind of dont want to go. Making a bunch of new friends, and I'm falling in love with a friend... oh boy.


> The road to greatness is long and hard, but continual growth is worth it. What keeps you going?

What keeps me going is a combination of blind ambition, and a desire to become better than those I've left behind.

do you really think girls can SEE that your height is now a round number? or are you going to lie to them and tell them that you're 180 cm even though you're actually still 178 cm with gimmicky soles. in that case, you could lie to them without the soles just as easily

>> Are you finding your direction in life, or are you still searching?

>> We talked about diet and cooking last week, how did you guys fare this week? Will you cook more, and eat more nutritiously? You should.
do meal prep once a week, been sticking to my diet pretty well so might have a takeaway tonight

>> How are your social gains going? Less >no gf feels and more setting a good example for others.
better, been using LSD, mostly microdosing for focus and depression reasons but also occasionally macrodosing to help me gain perspective, I don't feel like my friends connect with me in the same way they do to other friends I think due to my autism, but I've begun to realize you can spend an entire day thinking about things you don't have or feel and all it'll do is make you depressed and have wasted a day so now I'm beginning to just be grateful I get to have a connection to people who I can be myself around, I could tell them anything I feel and they'd try to help and the connection wouldn't get weaker and that's something to be appreciated
>> The road to greatness is long and hard, but continual growth is worth it. What keeps you going?
The last time I stagnated and stopped I ended up in hospital, whereas now the psychiatric unit is considering discharging me all together from their care early next year, since being released from hospital I've made such good strides my doctors are thinking i don't need to be under their care anymore if I stop I could loose that and go back to a state of almost constant confusion, delusion and fear

Yeah, I'm going to join the Army and drop college for now. I can go in as an E3 and make more money. I know its gonna be tough, but I feel good about it.

>We talked about diet and cooking last week, how did you guys fare this week? Will you cook more, and eat more nutritiously? You should.
Not really sure how to approach cooking or eating healthier. I don't really know where to begin with it all. How do I learn how to cook properly? What are some good starting meals I could make that are good for me?

>How are your social gains going? Less >no gf feels and more setting a good example for others.
I've become less interested in getting a gf honestly. I wasn't crying >tfw no gf or anything, but I liked the idea. I still do, but I just don't care as much, nobody seems like they're worth the time. I'm reading some books on social stuff and I'm trying to be more open and positive though.

>The road to greatness is long and hard, but continual growth is worth it. What keeps you going?
I just want to feel more comfortable in my own body and around people.

Depending on your job and all the variables it's probably quite different for every person. I always skipped breakfast since I was already in a fasting state while asleep. I I try to have my first meal as a late lunch then eat again for dinner. I can get all my calories in a 4-6 hr window every evening. I'm kinda off intermittent fasting now but that worked for me for half a year no problem. Obviously it wasn't a hard rule, sometimes your out for breakfast with your gf and what not but those were exceptions to the rule are relatively rare.

>>48308136

I want advice that isn't trying to give me false hope. That's all everyone around me gives. They only care about me feeling better, not actually trying to make things better for myself. I tried the spirituality/philosophy/religious/self help thing and it doesn't work. Everyone around me tries to control me rather than try to understand me. I had one thing that gave me at least a little bit of hope, and that got taken from me because the only job I could get isn't enough to cover living here so I have to move back in with my alcoholic asshole dad with nothing to hold on to. I get told constantly to not worry about what others think of me, but when I try to act like myself, I get harassed into conformity. I have no friends, I hate my family, I feel like shit all the time and at this point just want to die so I don't have to suffer like this anymore.

Going to quit making excuses and try some dating apps out tomorrow. I keep telling myself my pictures aren’t good enough, which is true because I never take pictures of myself or with my friends, but I’m a senior in college and I’ve never dated. I clearly need to start doing something new. Up until now I haven’t really tried to date women because in college they all act like whores. I wanted to wait for a good one, but I’m starting to think there aren’t any and I should at least get some experience having one night stands with thots. I really want one of you to convince me to change my mind and stick with waiting but I don’t think you can. I’ve already waited longer than I should have, a 21 year old kissless virgin is a loser no matter what.

Hey /fit/, this is more of an /adv/ post but it's really fucking with my mental state right now to the point I'm in a non-stop state of tension and anxiety
I've got three exams over the next week, how do I structure my time?
>Game theory - need 75% in the exam to pass the course, 95% for credit, I have a week to study
>IR theory bullshit - 70% for an overall credit, have three days to study
>US security bullshit - 60% for a distinction, have three days to study
Obviously I don't want to get anything under 50% and fail a course, but if I get over 60% for all of these then I get a significant amount of my uni debt paid off.
How do I use my time? My heart is unironically beating really fast most of the time right now out of stress, I don't know what to do. Considering going absolutely balls deep on game theory but I don't want to neglect the others. I'm honestly turning into a real life pink wojak right now, it's really killing my gains

I really don't know how females work, but there's a slight chance that, deppending on the way she's being a bitch, she's showing her affections to you. Be like a mirror-rock, that will not get moved from her harsh words but only reflect them to her, and eventually she will soften up and reach out.

Try to read what you wrote again objectively. If you really had made up your mind about doing it you wouldn't have posted that in the first place, but you haven't because you still think you're a loser, and you want someone to either reinforce you or challenge you. In my opinion, being someone who remains pure and grasps stillness while waiting for an equal has more value than someone who just follows trends, even if dating trends.

More emphasis on the individual but the collective is a thing, ignoring it doesn't help. The modern left is wholly collective, a lot on the right (except for white nationalists) are completely individualist, almost out of spite because that's what the left had been preaching for 50 years. The truth is that we are individuals and we are part of a collective, although the individual should still come first and foremost or you go down the path of tyranny.

I'm at a loss guys, cannot decide on a hairstyle. Got a terrible hairline, at the moment I just have it medium length so it's hidden under the curtains.

>>
>>48322965
Yes and I buzzed unironically.
I was really fucking self conscious about my forehead and I spent so much time and effort trying to hide it behind my fringe it really started to stress me out a lot. The idea of just buzzing it all off really appealed since no stress. And there would be no hair to contrast. It felt like the more hair I have, the larger my forehead seemed to be.
Anyways I did it. I love it and havent looked back. Its so fucking stress free and you might find that your hairline isnt as bad as you think, seriously you dont really know until youve buzzed it.

Im not saying buzz it, Im just talking in my experience. Your hair might be exaggerating it

Its fine, your welcome.
I suppose it depends how old you were at the time, eitherway maybe it would be a good idea to look up face shapes and hair styles.

Other than that man I dont know, good luck though!

I'm trying to go to a doctor again but I've already had so many blood tests, gone to specialists, tried antidepressants, supplements, dietary changes, getting more sleep, blue light blockers, and even had a sleep study done.

I feel hopeless. I literally have nothing else I want to do.. I have no hobbies or interests anymore, I just want to channel my autism into becoming fit, but I just fucking cannot understand what the hell to do. I'm 25 now and feel like I'll never escape being a gyno skinnyfat.

I struggle with this question too. On the one hand, I do feel a moral obligation to help as many people as possible, or at the very least to not harm others. On the other hand, I know that there's a practical limit of feasibility, and I have more agency in helping myself than I do helping others. Ultimately I lean more towards individualism, but only when it doesn't impede on other people.

With that said, I do hate the conflation between individualism and personal responsibility, because it's never that simple. There are a ton of people who DO have the capacity to "pull themselves up by their bootstraps" and reach a better position in their life, but there are also billions of people who don't have access to the same level of resources that I do. At best they can do the easy things like fitness or self-study that don't require many resources, but things like true financial freedom or a truly great education isn't something I could reasonably expect a third-world mudslime to find without stepping on others.

why do i need to self improve?
i am content with the worlds negative image of me, have been all my life
just because my parents think im a failure dont mean much
i can sit and eat, and clean the house all day. ill just lie in my bed, and do nothing. let my sleep cycle dissolve, day bleeds into night, and i do what i want.

i am loved enough by the people who would rather be next to me constantly.i am disliked by everyone else.

i have tried. there is no reason to dislike me. but i get pushed away, and all my relationships. i am tired of trying so hard, and nobody trying for me. nobody coming, or approaching me.
i ask for nothing, and i give everything i have. and im unsatistfied. i do moderation.

last year was nothing but effort, and all i gotta keep doing is forget? move on? ive been doing that for the last half decade?

i dont wanna killmyself, but i definitely wanna throw my life away. my sole motivation last year: 'suck it up' itold myself. 'people are inherently selfish. nobody truly wants to make you happy'
sometimes i think 'economics? are you just too much a giver, and everyone needs?'
my ego tells me 'its because you are strong enough to keep giving. you know you can handle it and its why you always do'

people dont like perfect. they want a flawed person. willpower sucks and im lonely.

I went through a improvement phase starting in the middle of my university years.

I needed to find goals first. I wanted to improve my social situation. I wanted to be independent and not a burden to my parents. I wanted to work abroad and see other places, as cheesy as that may sound. Based on these, I set more or less achievable goals. Some along the way would come up. I accomplished most of them.

But now I'm lost. I really don't know what I want, so I cannot set goals. There are always things that one can improve everyday, but not having a long term goal is something I lack. How do you face this issue?

> Are you finding your direction in life, or are you still searching?
Have a good career, married with children. Long term goal is to open a food truck business, I have a plan and am on my way to doing this. I know what I want, and while I make adjustments, things are going well. Slower than I want, but they are moving in a positive direction.

> We talked about diet and cooking last week, how did you guys fare this week? Will you cook more, and eat more nutritiously? You should
I started seriously fasting. Adding an 1/8 teaspoon of table salt and potassium salt makes a huge difference. I still need to drink some coffee during the fast, but considering I had a lot of trouble before, its very good. Otherwise I eat very good food and have all but eliminated sugar and alcohol from my diet except for certain very select occasions when I want to, and I can account for it in my eating.

> How are your social gains going? Less >no gf feels and more setting a good example for others.
Social gains are great. Have a wife so no problem. My focus is on being a model of conduct for others to follow when I am in public in how I dress, act, etc.

> The road to greatness is long and hard, but continual growth is worth it. What keeps you going?

I`m 27 and honestly I have no legitimate concerns over it, only some imaginary shit.
I worked on myself for a few years now but this year I`m pushing the pedal way more confident. With the same pace hitting 30
-I`ll have a body of a model
-will hit some amazing numbers at an IPF and Streetlifting meet
-will grow in my hobbies and possibly find a new one that sparks my creative side
-will meet new people and a few of them will earn my respect as I earned theirs
-will have a promotion on a decent, steady job with a decent paycheck and enough free time to grow.
-hopefully will find the love of my life
And that's modest considering I made half of that in a snails pace. I`m a steam locomotive baby, I'm running hot
Meanwhile most people around me will have a second divorce, a shitty job, not skill outside jerking off and drinking beer, cellulite and stretchmark's. All they really have is a dying body and no will to change.
But you change - you asked yourself that existential pitfall question, so you know that you have concerns. And of you know what bothers you - you can overcome it. Step by step, little by little, but never stopping

I fared pretty well for the last four months on this regard, my only cheat meal was yesterday's lunch, I spent the day on a relative's house, it was fun and I don't regret it, tho I found out that now soda tastes like shit to me. Cooking has been good, mastered lentils and meat, my mother promised she would teach me her godly red beans recipe but she has been delaying it due to being stressed on some family drama, bought 0,5kg of liver tho, will make it tomorrow and do some for my parents too, hope I get it right since I never cooked liver but it was cheap af and the macros were good
> How are your social gains going? Less >no gf feels and more setting a good example for others.
Social gains are mediocre at best, tho since I started going to the gym everyday I talk with some of the regulars there (boomers, my gym nemesis, two chads that give me lifting advice, no chicks tho), I talk a lot with my former college friends too. I just don't have the drive to go a club or something more social, I feel like I'm not worthy yet and I would just get disappointed and frustrated
> The road to greatness is long and hard, but continual growth is worth it. What keeps you going?

Reposting from another thread. Trying to dig myself out of depression, stopped lifting after a break up so I lost all my gains.

You might not find someone new for a month, or 3, or 6, or a year. But you will find someone new. Is she making your life harder? Is she taking away time from your other goals?

I cook most meals. Wife cooks too. Eating more protein, more whole food. Definitely more vegetables as I plan to bulk and don't want to feel like I'm dying. Getting used to eating veges and trying tricks to get more of them in my system. Anyone use a juicer?
> How are your social gains going? Less >no gf feels and more setting a good example for others.
I have a loving family and wife and good relationships with coworkers. That said I don't have a friend on this earth unless you count my old highschool buddies I haven't seen in literally years
> The road to greatness is long and hard, but continual growth is worth it. What keeps you going?
Meaning. Feels great. Make more $, invest it, hang out with my family, give my kids a strong backbone and make them decent, productive members of society. Getting back to powerlifting routine which feels so good when legs are dying from squats but you're full up on good good and just got blown by wife and invested $600 this month. That keeps me going.

I'm a victim of child abuse and only recently sought help. I'm diagnosed with depersonalization.
For the past few days though I have been meditating and it has been a huge help. That first time of actually being in the present moment is amazing.
How do you manage to not get distracted by your own thoughts when meditating? Or is it a matter of practice?
Things are looking up bois, we're all gonna make it!

the goal isn't to not get distracted it's when you do bring focus back to your mantra (most people go in, out, in ,out in time with breaths)

Both 1 and 100 at the same time

they are false equasion at best

you are both an individual and a part of the collective, collective of individuals make a collective and individuals of collective make individuals

i mean what does the peak individualism mean? back stabbing your family for personal gain and denouncing your culture and people? what does collectivism mean? forcing everyone into a hivemind, punishing even slightest of misbehaviors?

Choosing between one or another is false equation as you are always both. Denying one for the other creates more problems then accepting them coexisting.

Going to do the physical fitness test for police work in a couple of weeks.
It involves running for 12 minutes and going as far as possible within that time.
They cite 2900m upwards to be the highest possible grade, I tried it today just to see and did 3700m almost effortlessly.
Feels good that the training is paying off.
