Regain Your Attention Span
#11
For the last year and a half I've been wearing earplugs. I've found they're amazing at letting you focus on your work.

I also have a porn blocker on my phone. I find the more barriers you have to something the less chance you will find yourself doing it.

However, with pornography, its a 100% mental war. You either want to win, or you don't.

I would urge you to give up both.

I know the boss man here thinks 20 rep breathing squats are a scam, but Randall J Strossen described a method to enable their performance that can be directly applied to focusing your attention to getting anything completed.

As performing this movement is so brutal, you don't just count 1 to 20. When you get to 10, and realise you have another 10, mentally, you won't be able to do it. So, tell yourself you are only going do 5. Then once you get to 5, count backwards from 5. Again, telling yourself that's all you're going to do. Then, tell yourself your going to try to do another 5. Then, whatever works best for you.

As Strossen said, this mindset can be applied to anything, not just 20 rep squatting. If you have a big task, and you know you don't have the energy to complete it, tell yourself your just going to do a small portion of it. If you are able to do that, tell yourself you're just going to another small portion. You might find you are able to complete it all. But if not, at least you have completed part of it. This can be applied to basically anything. Work tasks, cleaning, reading ...

You are not always going to be bursting with motivation and energy, but in such cases, you might still be able to get something done.

Nice. A very effective method for struggling through all kinds of stuff (you gave examples).

It's also known as "salami tactics" after former Hungarian communist Matyas Rakosi who used it to crush his enemies, one by one. If the commies were ever right on something, then on this one. ;)

^ Plus, using this method with 20-rep breathing squats, if you stop around half way through, you won't achieve the benefits. But with work tasks, cleaning, reading etc, you have actually achieved half your task. It's actually more useful for these other applications.

Solid advise OP
To the list I’d add quitting porn and some sort of meditation each day. Ideally pure eyes closed meditation.

To correct myself - in the meantime I discovered FB Purity extension who effectively block all FB thrash, check it out by all means
Unfortunately, it's only applicable via desktop web browser - problem still persist if you use FB from mobile app or browser but still better than nothing Cool

I can relate in a way. I used to get regular sex from a girlfriend I used to have  and I still watch porn after we do it.

It's a really bad habit and addiction.
