How to Kill Your Stubborn Sleep Procrastination Depression

How to Kill Your Stubborn Sleep Procrastination Depression

What is Sleep Procrastination Depression?

With all of these menacing technological devices taking over our lives, getting to sleep early is beyond just “difficult”. Accordingly, the rise of sleep procrastination depression is becoming an increasingly severe problem for us all.

Ignoring the time promotes sleep procrastination depression

While computer technology can be fundamental for your productivity, I couldn’t rely on it always: somehow, the Internet will try to throw my ideals out the window; that will subsequently commence the negative spiral of sleep procrastination.

In fact, it is entirely possible that you are a victim of this practice—sleep procrastination—without realising.

Sleep procrastination is, to clarify:

The practice of delaying the process of going to bed thus resulting in later-than-ideal bedtimes. Consequently, this will likely lead to sleep deprivation and/or inadequate quality of sleep.

Evidently, nobody aims to procrastinate on their sleep, hence the depression part.

When you give in to sleep procrastination occurs just once, you will find trouble due to the associated negative spiral; one late night induces a negative multiplier effect creating increasingly worse situations for yourself.

To demonstrate, here is how this negative spiral of sleep procrastination depression might look like:

Why I Abandoned Dual Boot and Finally Gained Back Freedom

Why I Abandoned Dual Boot and Finally Gained Back Freedom

My Journey Towards Using Dual Boot

Dual boot has, for an incredibly long time, been the way I had my computers set up.

To be honest, I am moderately obsessed with operating systems that look good and work well. (Okay, maybe not moderately, as such.)

Therefore, I obviously found my eye stuck on several Linux distributions over the years! The family of Windows operating systems had been my primary driver—for everything I do—since the beginning of time.

Quick: What is Dual Boot?

Dual Boot with Windows and Linux
Dual-booting with Windows and Linux is the most common dual boot configuration.

Fortunately, you’re not limited to installing just one operating system to your computer’s storage drive.

To demonstrate, multi-booting is the way in which you can boot into one of the installed OSs. A menu appearing when you turn on your computer is usually how you would select the OS.

In addition, perhaps the most widely-used form of this is dual boot: having 2 installed OSs to boot, typically Windows and Linux.

Read on in order to learn more about dual boot and its purpose in life.

Ignorance and Confidence: How to Gain from Them

Ignorance and Confidence: How to Gain from Them

Firstly:  Ignorance is Not Bliss? Lies!

In this article, we will go into the depths of the secrets of ignorance and confidence—could there be a link? However, there’s one deal-breaking problem; there seems to be a plague bringing terror to the streets of our clean world…

This plague brings winds so rough that innocent people are consumed by tornados of misconceptions. In other words, there is a surplus population of those who perceive ignorance negatively. And where is their evidence exactly?

Cherry-Picking

The evidence is biased, hence your conclusion is invalid.

Curiously, albeit not surprisingly, people seemingly cherry-pick certain situations which support their ideas. These scenarios, at first, appear to be convincing explanations for the deniers of the truth. Then these people, rather strikingly, draw the unjustified conclusion that ignorance is deplorable.

However, this is an extremely surface-level peek at the beautiful concept of ignorance. The only reason it’s viewed grudgingly is that society has learned the poisonous resentment of the unknown truth.

So, in order to get the most out of this article, you must initially open your mind up to the opportunities you’ve already denied yourself. As a matter of fact, our beliefs are poisonous, since they prevent us from—in many ways—progressing.

Next, having cleared that up and shoving it down the drain, why could ignorance possibly be bliss?

9 Self-Control and Discipline Strategies: Break Free Now!

9 Self-Control and Discipline Strategies: Break Free Now!

Living in Monotony and Progress-Deficiency?

Don’t be the victim of scarce self-control and discipline; there are ways to improve your willpower such that you finally get the motivation to make progress towards utopia. In this article, we will be discussing willpower tricks as well as busting poisonous, self-defeating myths.

In fact, everybody suffers from resistance. It’s those who can handle it, however, who are able to do what others can’t be bothered to do. This is the secret to succeeding in life, since there’s little competition when you’re willing to do what others aren’t.

Do What Others Will Not and Succeed

Whether or not it seems feasible to you, there are ways you can boost your self-control and discipline–provided you supply the determination. And if for any reason you don’t have that, remind yourself of the reasons for developing self-control and discipline. Here is my comprehensive motivational list of determination-reasoning:

  • Defeat the competition
  • Infinite bragging rights
  • Have the potential to be insanely successful, that is, more than anyone else
  • Never again feel guilty for underachieving
  • Dominate the world
  • Never again be laughed at for not having the self-control and discipline to be worth anything
  • Laugh at everybody else because they are not nearly as successful as you
  • Achieve anything
  • Pull ahead of the race
  • Become rich
  • Live in a surplus of satisfaction

You’ve now developed that burning desire to become too superior for your feeble friends. (Congratulations!) As such, you are abundantly ready to receive the real deal. But first, we must understand the underlying, all-powerful law of willpower.
