[31M] Karmayogi's Daily Logs - ब्रह्मचर्य in 30s

Hello Everyone, I am Karmayogi, one of the oldest members of this forum (nothing proud about admitting this)

I have transitioned into a married life, I am father to a daughter. But I mostly stay alone as my family stays in the hometown. I want to utilize this time to get back to a solid Brahmacharya oriented lifestyle.

I am starting this new diary to track my daily routine, which has gone haywire of late.

This biggest challenge this time around is to keep showing up everyday in the forum. I have started countless diaries in the past and abandoned all of them mid-way. I need to stop this habit, I need a logical closure to everything that I start.

Daily Routine:

:white_check_mark: Wake up @ 4:30 AM
:white_check_mark: Affirmations and Visulisations
:white_check_mark: Oil Pulling
:white_check_mark: Drink Water
:white_check_mark: Running
:white_check_mark: Exercise + Yoga
:white_check_mark: Study 2 hours

:white_check_mark: 108 Gayatri Mantra Chanting in evening
:white_check_mark: Brahmacharya videos on YouTube
:white_check_mark: Dinner by 7 PM
:white_check_mark: Read a book
:white_check_mark: Planning for next day
:white_check_mark: Sleep by 10:30 PM

Things not to do
:x: No looking at a girl twice
:x: No Sugar

Minor habits:
:white_check_mark: Balayam / Walking during office meetings
:white_check_mark: Use YouTube to watch videos of Bhakti, Self Help & Celibacy

Core Values of My Life:
Mindful Living
Working harder than my peers
Staying positive, happy and optimistic.

Hello Karmayogi :wave:t2:

It makes me happy to see other Brahmachari in this forum :smiling_face:

I wonder what causes this habit of stopping halfway through your sadhana ?

Hello Virya, what an absolute pleasure to discover a yogi from France.I

Not sure why i abandon my practices, multiple reasons, a general lack of consistency, may be ADHD, may be overconfidence that I have won it over… Etc

Welcome back, @_KarmaYogi!

On the other hand, I’m one of the newer ones here.

Like @Virya, I too find joy in seeing other Brahmacharins along the journey. May you again find the strength, perseverance and success in your own path towards purity :pray:

Thanks for the wishes @ehipasyika @Brahmchary !

Being a very old member of this forum, I can recall the great Brahmacharis who were once part of this group, who not only succeeded in completing the reboot but rather transformed themselves entirely
@JumpingBuddha @Tagore @AnkitK Read the diaries of these guys, lots of learning here.
