Starting a big task

You can break down any big task or large project into quick bites that allow you to get started, sustain momentum, and complete an overwhelming task two minutes at a time. 

The next time you feel the pull to procrastinate, identify something you can do in just two minutes to get started. 

Plan big, execute small.

Food as another example

When you're in the moment of whether or not to eat the whole package of cookies, you need to shift your focus and focus on the pain (where will you be in 6 months if you continue to overeat?)

This will drastically change your entire life
3. Meditate. Meditate. Meditate

Meditation is the act of focus on one thing at a time. It can be your breath, bodily sensations, or even a song that you like.

If you are a beginner, try to meditate 5 minutes or 10 every day.

Try some guided meditations on Youtube or try using some apps.

You can meditate also when you eat, when you walk, when you do something you like. This is called mindfulness. The act of simply enjoying what you are doing, focusing on the present, savoring every second that goes by.

6. when thinking about life, remember this: no amount of guilt can change the past and no amount of anxiety can change the future.

You can’t change your past. What is done is done. It’s useless to feel guilty about what you’ve done, instead you have to take everything as a lesson. Learn from your mistakes and try not to do them again.

Also, you don’t have to stress too much about your future. Remember that your future will be the choices that you do today.

Rather than worrying, think about what you can do today in order to have a good tomorrow.

Why the animedoro technique can be better than the pomodoro technique
  1. This technique lets you study for a longer period and so it is good for people who need a lot of time to study or to concentrate.
  2. You can feel more motivated to study because after the 40 minutes are gone you'll see a full episode of your favourite show or anime. 
  3. Josh Chen said: “If you are enjoying the show or the anime that you are watching you will probably want to see the next episode, and that can be a strong motivator to get you to do that next 40/60 minutes of work.
