Day 331 Saturday, 8:06 AM 28/04/2018 Doing good. Small peek last night. Apart from that, eveything's alright. Honestly just need to use tech less. Still reading The Chimp Paradox. One of the points that he's making is that you have to be aware of when the "chimp" is taking over. To be able to control yourself the first step is awareness. One thing he recommends is is asking yourself "Do I want..." when you are inclined towards certain thoughts/actions. It's nothing crazy new, but it's good mental image. You just have to get into the habit of thinking "This is my chimp". The chimp is basically an image of the emotional centre of the brain. Some of the stuff he talks about—like how the chimp responds first is stuff you learn about in psychology, but it's easier to conceptualise it this way. Anyways. Back to the grind.
