Why social network sucks

Finally I’m free from social networks and now it’s time to live in real life. I don’t recommend to do the same thing, it was my personal decision. Now try to explain why social network sucks, note that some facts maybe obvious(Hello Captain) but anyway I lost too much just to understand them. Well, I may say that social network is bad because the most of time you will only like posts, watch videos, read useless information, i.e. waste time. Superficially for wasting time you are guilty as you haven’t got enough willpower to control your time. Now answer to question: “What is the sound of one hand clapping?!” and meditate. 🙂

If you found the answer then you are Buddha, congratulations. But hitting wall or your own head to clap is not true answer. If you got it, we can blame not just ourselves but also one thing, yay! That thing is company which provides service or marketing of company. In marketing plan was declared, company will earn money by selling advertisement on website. To sell ads company needs make you addicted into the social network and it sucks. It’s kinda drinking alcohol, smoking and not chemical but mental addiction. I think would be great if companies try to change the way how they earn money. I’m totally agree to pay for social networking but with the condition that they won’t try make me to spend more time on their website. Just think battle between you and between marketing managers, psychologists, UX designers, usability testers, content managers, You vs team. It’s not fair to play such game, better not to start and not to blame yourself for willpower need.

The second problem is, we have already forgot why we need social networks. Just answer to yourself how many people you meet from social networks? 10? 30? 100? The point is not just adding as friend, rating photos or commenting. The point is to meet in real life and hang out. I don’t like how people use social networks, most of the people expect from you comment, like and share something related to their account and nothing more. What about dancing, eating, drinking, laughing, walking, hanging out and loving? Shortly, this was the second problem.

Now you know my opinion why social network sucks. My offer is to exclude free social networks, give more freedom to people to control their time, help to meet new interesting people and discover new beauty inner worlds which are not seen from monitors. 🙂

Lift.do – new positive habits

I started using one useful service for generating positive habits, to be honest I started 3-4 month ago but gave up. I think everybody knows that our behaviors consists only from habits, negative or positive. By default most of our habits are negative, sure at the end we get negative results. Liquidating bad habits are not so easy just because they were continuously replayed for a long time. For example, if you have been smoking for 2 years and to liquidate you have to try 2 years not to smoke, as smoking habit has been maintained 2 years, it has 2 years strength. But everybody wants results right now and right here, which is not true. Related to Lift.do, so how this new service may help to make our life better? In this service you can add new habits and check them daily. I configured some reminders and I get daily mail about my new habits. If you start from simple habits it will be easy to work. You can make new friends, follow them and help each other to make yourself better. Currently supported two platforms: web and IOS. Maybe in future they start supporting another platforms. If you want to generate new good habits I recommend you this service.

Damn, my post looks like sponsored post but I decided to write about service to say thanks to team. Anyway you can’t argue with one fact – this service is better than any social networks. Thanks to Lift.do team.

I workout

Good news I started going to gym. If I don’t go to gym I feel myself as vegetable. Sure, the point is not to gain massive mussles but just relieve stress, make myself feel happy and meditate. There are a lot of similarities between gym and meditation. When you under heavy weight you can’t think about anything as it may hurt you easily. So, you forgot everything which is not dedicated how to handle weight which is stressing you. It’s kinda exptreme meditation. I think I can give some tips which maybe useful for you if you go to gym.

  • Always warm-up before starting workout
  • Drink water during workout
  • Do not eat 2 hours before workout
  • Always start from the lightest weight, no matter how much you can handle
  • Use belt when you swing legs and back
  • Do not ignore your brushes, you got problems when you lift heavy weight with your hands
  • If you want to gain weight, ignore isolation exercise
  • Eat at the same time and minimum 3 times in a day, better 5
  • 3 times workout in a week is normal
  • Remember base exercises: press, deadlift, squat
  • Forget about chemistry
  • The last and the most import: please workout without fanatism.

If you follow such simple rules, you can easily go to gym just to feel yourself happy.

I’m home

I’m home, yay. When you come back to home, everything remains the same but only you changed. This also means that I don’t have to cook, I will eat my Mom’s tasty meals, yummy. Now collecting papers for army. Yeah, you do not seem, I said army! U̶n̶c̶l̶e̶ ̶S̶a̶m̶ Motherland wants me. If I complete paperwork then after 2 weeks I may go to army. In army I will serve about month. The main reason why I want to go to army is  t̶o̶ ̶b̶e̶c̶o̶m̶e̶ ̶r̶e̶a̶l̶ ̶m̶a̶n̶ return debt to my country(but couldn’t remember if I borrow something). If seriously I want to rest, the only place where I can rest seems for me is army. Sure, you can also workout, run in the mornings, do crazy things which can’t rejoice you. It’s not wasting time, it’s experience. That’s the things.
