active means accomplishing what you set out to accomplish thus playing video games for a couple hours on a day set aside a play video games for a couple of hours is actually productive but that can't be every day your top twenty or your top ten rather think of a quick mental list of the top twenty most important things in your life how important are the last ten thing but even necessary in my last i include my relationship with jesus spending time with my family my commitment to the air force exercise and this blog and the top five the next five may include some born things like reading and traveling but i can assure you that the last ten items would need to go how much can you cut out and how much more time with i give you to focus on your top tat what you need to cut out in your life personally i know that i can spend much less time scrolling my facebook canoes feed and i have of true my life down to the bare bones and i keep trimming away
how do you decide what you should cut out simple just ask yourself is getting closer to your goals on the top ten items if it is keep doing it has not cut it plainly against my kids on a saturday gets me closer to my family goals play video games by myself if you know twenty hours a week s me farther away from my family goals therefore i dont have i am for the latter here's how freedom through limitation works if you want freedom you must limit yourself over indulgence is not the answer i could try to explain freedom through limitation and the importance of it all day but instead i'll save your time and using examples to summon all up here's how this works she days are a great example and a work for almost everything the most common you
forty days is dieting but can also work for other things you typically over indulge in like technology here is our works give yourself one day each week to overdo it you whatever he wants watch tv all day play video games from oriental midnight if you want but here's the kicker you have to see discipline for the rest of the week that she day on a diet won't be effective if your cheating throughout the week as well once you get this down is extremely free the food will tastes better the games will be more fun and you'll still be working toward your goals the best part you won't feel guilty for doing it for the first she d i gave myself when i first started the body for life diet the help me lose fifty pounds of fat it was a good day everything that i wanted to eat all week it fell gray knowing that still climbing tour my weight loss goals as already have of a large deep dish pepperoni pisa and after an entire day of it out it did not look at unhealthy foods for another week set limits and give yourself freedom so
i put this into action today start with achieve day in some area seal freeing it is and then branch out into the rest of your life adding discipline into a life will only give you more freedom limits allow for freedom the freedom to live your life to the fullest if you want true freedom in life you must lemme yourself when we over indulge ideally basis we feel terrible mentally or physically we feel guilty and we often feel sorry for ourselves we don't even enjoy the things that we continuously over indulge in moderation and limitation brings you no i meant back if you want to feel better and be happier set some limitations you'll think yourself here listen to the post titled if you want freedom limit yourself by qian bruce of money many blog dog harm i cited as a new author on a pie cast an eye she on optimal finance daily to
