Quit all your vices

For many, the major obstacles to the good life is the abundance of temptations keeping us in the same place:

  1. Put up barriers that constrain the activity within predetermined limits.
  2. Make a rule. "Only one episode of television per day."
  3. Use the power of consistent conditioning. "I only use social media on weekends." Now you won't think of checking it on a weekday.
  4. Set barriers that prevent you from engaging. Use an app to control social media websites.
  5. Set barriers you can't easily overcome. Give your friend the password to unblock your social media, so you can't disable it.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
