Gosh, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything in here. I’ve created this thread to talk about what do you do to stop procrastinating and do more work.

Web design is a job that doesn’t require anything else but a laptop. You don’t move and before you realize you’re sad and out of shape.

I’ve been an architecture student for two years now, and even though I’m doing pretty good, I know I could do better. And for that I needed motivation, I needed something to make me focus and keep me busy all day. My roommate studies architecture with me, but he’s also an athlete. He keeps himself motivated by running and even though he looses 2 hours a day training, it makes him a better architect. Because that 2 or 3 hours keeps himself off architecture and he doesn’t need to procrastinate. So I started going to the gym, daily. I must admit it improved myself, both physically and academically. But the gym is too “indoors”. It bores me, not enaugh to make me stop going, but it is boring. So the question is, what sports do you do? I don’t mean it just like a hobby that you do on the weekends. I mean, what daily sport do you do? Or anything else, it doesn’t NEED to be a sport. You can also share other secrets that make you better at your job.

1-1.5 hours of mountain biking daily (weather permitting). 25-30km total depending which route I take. Keeps me sane. Just got back from an hour-long late night ride in fact. Got some nice roads/woods not far from where I live, with different terrain to mix things up.

When it’s not summer, I lift weights to balance it out. I do it from home though, so no time lost getting ready/going to the gym.

Biking definitely. Andreas Vollenweider as music, nice scenery, far away from city or at least to nearby forest, park…whatever. Try not to think about climate change, economical crisis, your study, envato templates etc…do this for 2-3 days and you’ll be good as new :)

Unfortunately, I fall into that sad state a few times a year.

I get a mental break when I take my kid to karate 3x a week. I also enjoy photography, both as a profession and as a hobby. I can easily spend a couple of hours walking around looking for that perfect shot.

3eka has a good idea. Spending a couple of days away from the computer does me a lot of good. It’s like the screen zaps the energy right out of me. But if I stay away I suddenly feel like going out and doing something.

i just keep watch on top authors here. Recently I have QODE guys in power elite and I feel I should be thr one day. Its really motivating. Every time I see Avada or X theme and other elite authors, it gives me motivation to build something unique and awesome. Im still unsure what do I do to achieve that but still I have such great authors in mind to go ahead.

Let’s see how far i go

I compete and train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ). BJJ is basically like high school wrestling, but with join locks, chokes, and submissions. Its an easy way to get ugly but in amazing shape at the same time.

Sitting in front of a computer sucks after a few hours, and my top productivity comes after the gym or from lifting.

BJJ can make you not suck in fights, and keep your physique in great shape. Not to mention all of the psychological / mental changes our body goes through after you dedicate yourself to the sport.

Try it out!
