Men are becoming weaker day by day
The powerful corporations out there who have power, money, technology and research wants us to stay weak so that they can earn more
And things are just going to get worse with AI and VR.
The post is going to be long
If u want to join this challenge but feel lazy to read the entire post - u already have short attention span
(Nothing to be ashablmed of because i was once the same. Though i have improved quite a bit but i have lot more to grow)
What are the unhealthy habits that give high dopamine but u dont get anything or much in return?
- Social media (including infinitely scrolling on yt,fb and even twitter)
- Binge watching (series, anime, or even manga)
- P*rn or/and m@$
- Junk food and sugar food
These are the few things that i know of
If u want to add anything u r free to add
The question is are these things a problem.
I would say absolutely yes.
Lets see about each thing separately
Games these day are made to be addictive.
Gaming companies employ psycologists to research on human brain and this helps the gaming company to be more and more addictive (You Dont need to believe me, you can research by urself.)
We spend hours and hours on games just become We feel a sense of accomplishment when we are leveling up in game. But on the other hand we are just trying to make ourselved forget about the reality where we have made no progress at all and we feel guilty of that and to escape that and feel sense of fulfillment we continue gaming. After a certain time it so happens that you no more enjoy gaminy but you still continue to do it because of FOMO on the skins, getting a fake sense of accomplishment and to make u feel less guilty.
- Social media, binge watching and tv
We tend to keep scrolling and binge watching (mindlessly watching)
Every few says there is a new series
Every few seconds a new video is uploaded on social media
You just keep scrolling amd scolling infinitely
Till either u dont have energy left or u dont have internet left
And if u have a wifi there is no end.
When will u stop??
- Junk food and sugary food
There is nothing wrong in having it once in a while
But these days many have it on daily basis which is not good
I binge eat junk food whenever im low and when i have relapsed
Why cant we stop eating this if its unhealthy?
- im yet to find this answer
In the first two situations we tend to waste more than 2 years of our life if done for long periods
Isnt time precious??
I mean wont these two years worth of time help in improving ur career, physical and mental health, your relationships with many people around you??
This challenge is to overcome all these things
But this doesnt mean not to enjoy our life
The problem is we have equated these things as enjoyment which is the new normal.
what to do with your time
Do anything that doesnt involve the technology
Or dont do anything and just keep walking around the house or do some workouts on ur own without technology
Sometimes i take a pencil and just scrible in a small paper out of frustration
