The question isn't "how do I get a gf", it's "how do I become a person who can get any gf he wants".

/sig/ Basics:
>YOU are 100% responsible for the way you experience life. Not your parents, not your surroundings, not your ex, not your bully, not your future spouse. YOU. Complete, sincere acceptance of this is the most fundamental step to bettering yourself, and it is by far the hardest thing you'll ever do.
>Set realistic Goals and have a Plan.
>Meditate ( Guide: http://youtu.be/F0jedwTzIJg - important: relax your jaw, lips almost parted ).
>Learn helpful and effective daily/weekly/etc. routines, including mundane ones. Use digital Calendar reminders.
>Have a steady sleeping rhythm - one that works for you, so long as you keep to it.
>Learn to be Brutally Honest with yourself. Stop being a slave to your Ego.
>Focus on the essentials. If you try to do everything at once, you’ll burnout. Little by little.

Feeling pretty bad brehs.

The last 5 job interview all said im too much of a thinker/academic person. They say my interviews are a detriment to my motivation letter and resume.

I desperately want to leave research, but my way of speaking and thinking keeps holding me back.

How the fuck do I practice this?

The only was of doing that is exposure to something else. Try and get some time with those in the field you want. Understand who they are and then you can become a better fit for the direction you want from life.

Before last year I was lifting, reading, developing psychological strenght, I was finally starting to become confident, have peace of mind and girls started to pay more attention to me, but I took a year off basically everything in my life to focus on getting on med school. I finally got in, but last year brought me unhapiness, terrible self-esteem, I lost about 15 pounds of muscle, anxiety around people. I need to get back into it. I've started with gym again, eating, supping vit D, taking a multi, reading almost every day, started meditating recently. I still feel like absolute shit and want to off myself, can't stand this shit. Just gotta keep going.........

>I've been reading some esoteric stuff about Kundalini yoga and Indo-European ancient religions etc. and I'm willing to have an open mind and experimenting with it, but I'm not sure. I feel like these threads are always circlejerks with the same people who just need to get out of bed, take a shower, and start lifting. Anyone got a bit further than that?

What you described is literally the next step: taking the leap of faith and experimenting with esoteric and mystical practices do develop your spirit. Here's a great library of stuff from the occult and mysticism general on /x/:

You probably seem too distant, aloof, stoic, or worse, like you think you know more or are smarter than others. Solution: Be more open and casual, pull the stick out of your ass and loosen up a bit. Laugh and smile more than you usually do, genuinely. Smile at your interviewers when you meet them, hell, even slip in a quick question about themselves or the company BEFORE they start asking you, seem more interested I guess.

I come from an abusive household. It makes me fear failure to the point where I don't feel comfortable trying to do things that take me out of my comfort zone, and I overreact when I do things wrong (vomiting, panic attacks, sleepless nights, etc).

How do I become more patient? It's going to be about 9 months until I'm at the first milestone for where I want to be, and another year or two to actually reach my goal. It's so demotivating to think about how much time needs to pass, even if it's going to pass regardless.

My thing personally is to take inspiration from men who spent their lives fighting, struggling. One of the most recent one is Cristiano Ronaldo.

It might sounds foolish but the guy is a beast. He keeps working, working, and working super hard.

Keep working. Keep suffering. Don't let yourself be distracted.

You're gonna keep yourself busy and thus it will drive away any urges that you may have.

But one element that is essential is to avoid any pictures that may trigger an unwanted response. Such as porn, but generally any pictures with a hot chick.

And you're gonna fail. But it's okay. It wouldn't be suffering if you didn't fail.

How often do you guys eat sweets? The past few days I've made a rule to only consume sugar with 2 cups of coffee at most, the rest has to be natural food. Does that sound good?

Cheers brother, that philosophy helps massively.

This sounds gay but just knowing that someone else has helped me is a massive motivator not to disappoint them.

>>49990789
had same tendencies
1 year of therapy fixed about 20-30%
a few ayahuasca trips fixed the rest. Wouldn't recommend it to everyone, but it's incredibly useful for most people these days. Do your own research on it before you take it and do it with a trip sitter if you can. Recipe is syrian rue + mymosa hostilis, you can find these 2 plants in almost any country legally and you can just look up recipes and what to expect online. Godspeed

>>49991385
You start acting in slightly different, albeit barely noticeable way. After several days I notice I behave in a more open way all around, but specifically around girls. There's just something inside that pushes you to talk to them more, be more "outgoing" so to speak. Because if you really, but really want something, you go for it. And since you are horny as fuck, you inadvertently WILL try to get rid of the urge in any way. By prohibiting yourself from masturbating, the only other way is to find a partner. Those are my observations at least.

I did a brief search, and some recurring things were
>reduced inflammation
>much lower risk of tooth decay
>much lower risk of diabetes and heart disease
>clearer thought
>better skin
>lower chance of getting overweight/obese
The diabetes and heart disease are probably the real clinchers here. If you have a natural sweet tooth like me, you're playing with fire chasing that sugar high all the time, even if you're at a healthy weight. I'm the sort of guy that would go back for fifths at the cookie table because I never get tired of them, but that's unsustainable for an adult, and dangerous. This is why with the above, I think it's a good decision. For now, cheat days are not a thing until this habit is cemented.

But it is stressful. Remember you are a person before being a doctor/med student. We all have flaws and as long as we try our best there is no reason to feel anxious.

29 and a virgin, I don't see this changing anytime soon.
Lately I'm seeing no point in fapping because if I can't even justify being in a relationship, why even masturbate to the idea of fucking? So at least that's going to make nofap easy.
I guess on the bright side I'm not an incel, I don't hold other people responsible for my shortcomings as a man. But I don't try dating cause I think I'm a terrible partner, I can often be critical to the point of cruelty, both with myself and others.

My question is where do I begin in fixing this mess, if possible?

Anyone have advice for quitting cigs? It's starting to get out way out of hand but I've had to quit weed last week because i'm on probation and it's been helping me get through it. I was able to quit for a couple weeks a few months back but ended up relapsing.

A reduction in sugar consumption will definitely help you regardless. Be aware that lots of food has added sugar that should also be avoided.

I'd recommend trying to go no sugar for a week and then switching to just getting sugars from fruits. I had to quit sugar as I was once decently fat.

For those trying to quit porn: Realize that fapping to women that you will never get to smash, or worse, while watching some other dude smash, is almost the definition of cuckoldry- just imagine for a moment the pain that does to your emotional state (even beyond the scope of conscious thought). They are just starting to scratch the surface on what it does to you biologically.

I've been stressed for the last 4 weeks, and in the last week, I've been seriously stressed. I can't eat properly, I feel sick all the time, I'm losing weight.

I lost my job 4 weeks ago, but I found another one straight away, but it's factory work. I work 3 weekend nights, 12 hour shifts. The job is killing me mentally. I actually went back to my old place of work and asked if I could have my job back, and I was told 'possibly', but it ended up that they weren't able to for reasons I fully understand and accept.

I have applied for other jobs, and I really hope I get this certain one, as I've had the interview and it seemed like it went well, but I feel like I'm slowly dying every single second that brings me closer to my next shift in my factory work.

I wish money wasn't so goddamn important. I wish I could just chill with her, and spend my time being happy, rather than us being ripped apart most days and forced to do shit we don't like, just so we can build the life we want.

I really do hope I get this other job.

It would be better to learn to deal with those anxieties without drugs, if just possible.

If you're sure you've exhausted every possible avenue of getting rid of the anxiety, then by all means, microdose, but be honest with yourself.

I had a weird relation with cigarettes, when I was at uni I was addicted. started smoking because I was a fucking retard (watched Cowboy Bebop and wanted to be cool like the MC) and every time i tried to quit I would cave in after like 2 days.

As soon as I came home I no longer felt the addictive tendancies, and when I went back they returned. this pattern continued for 3 years, and I still buy a pack when I go up to visit now 2 years later. No idea why.

Find a reason to talk to her, and then just talk to her. There is no "magic trick" other than putting yourself in a position for a conversation.

I've been on nofap for 8 months, but this February I've basically been on a fap bonanza. I would masturbate 4 times a day, go a week or two without masturbating then jack it 4 times in a single day, or two in a row.
I honestly can't explain how I've managed to go 8 months without masturbating. I think it reflects badly on my mindstate considering how my reason for doing it was me hating the sexual aspect of humans, pretty much being disgusted by myself and my sexuality. There was nothing more, nothing less to my reasoning, no nofap memes that get paraded around here. Other than that, my mind in those months was extremely dull and foggy, this isn't too unusual for me but I was taking it to the next level, I reversed my day and night cycle, I ate scarcely (sometimes not more than once a day), I felt very weak and my mind always felt like exploding. I think I'm doing better now, at least my day/night cycle has fixed itself.
It's been 9 days since my last fap bonanza. I'm hoping that this fit of debauchery has come to an end. I still can't convince myself wholeheartedly in a more noble reason for nofap, and I think I'm getting back into my old, decrepit routine. But I think there's still hope it gets better.
Sorry for the blogpost, I can't even tell where I was going with this. I just started typing and ended up with this. I wanted something to write, I've been pent up in my head for so long and I think writing is good for your head.

I think Ive done it lads. Got lucky and met a girl who wants a clean and traditional lifestyle. Looks like pic related. Wants kids. Doesn't drink or smoke. Saving herself for marriage. I've only been dating her for a month or so and everything in my gut is telling me this girl is the right one. I know I'm going to struggle abstaining from sex (been doing NoFap and NoPorn on top of it) and it's going to drive me crazy at times. But I believe it is worth it for a wholesome relationship.

it sounds like you got in your own head. in the sense that a thinker thinks about thinking, it creates feedback. just be observant. obviously they're all hot, but were their any that gave you a second of attention, checking you out? if so go for them. talk to them, get them to talk (when they talk they loosen up, you learn who they are and if they are worth your time, etc). and GENUINELY BE INTERESTED. whats to loose? were all going to be dead at some point

My ears have been hurting and my doctor said I have a lot of wax built up in them. He recommended using candles to remove the ear wax.

I have long heard that is bullshit and a very cursory google search reveals it is still considered so. In the past he has also said he has reservations about vaccinations.

Time to find a new doctor? I think so. Kind of sucks to have to go through that process because I liked this guy and thought he was a help in a lot of ways, but it must be done.

... wow. Please change your doctor.

For your ears, go to a pharmacy and ask for something that helps soften the wax buildup. Then reserve a time for a nurse to rinse out your ears.
The day before the rinse, put the solution you got from pharmacy into your ears, block the ears so it stays in and let it stew over night. Yeah, it's uncomfortable and gross.
Next day, hope the nurse gets everything and then enjoy your improved hearing.

>The question isn't "how do I get a gf", it's "how do I become a person who can get any gf he wants".
I want to say something on this.
What precisely does being that person have to do with it? You can be the most attractive guy in the world, and you can still miss hints, or think you're screwing up, or whatever. I've had instances in which a girl was attracted to me, I was attracted to her, and we both knew it, but nothing happened. Some of this had reasonable excuses (one time she was under 18), but not every time.
Every time, though, it was an extension of that same idea. It was a thought of "well, it's clearly not okay to date her in that situation, so is it okay to date her in this one?" It's then that I became obsessed with the morality of dating. Not just "some dating is immoral", but "some dating is better than others". So my question has mostly always been, "what's the best dating option?"
Some things I can say
>it's not about attractiveness, or desire, it's about matchmaking
Try to be objective about it. If you were a matchmaker, and you saw yourself and the girl in question, would you think that you two made a good couple? Do you two get along well?
>when it is about attractiveness or desire, it's about fun and nothing else
there's literally nothing wrong with attraction, it's just not everything. When you don't particularly care about whether a girl is right for you, it's about equivalent to playing video games. Just try to have fun with it.
>lean on your friends hard

Am I a moron for feeling like I can see through people?

I've spent a lot of time watching how other people interact, from the outside looking in I suppose. I sat on my own all the time in school and spent all my time people watching. Any time I'm in a coffee shop or a restaurant I like to get a quiet seat and watch the world unfold around me. I study people's body language, how they talk, how they walk, how they dress themselves, how they act, I take it all in. Then I match the patterns together in my mind, cross-referencing with the thousands of other people I have met, and I can make comparisons, draw similarities, and in my mind I develop an accurate representative framework for how this person perceives the world, how they make their decisions, what they value, what they care about, what they don't care about.

People's eyes tell you everything. I feel like I can honestly just stare into their soul. People have this energy that they carry with them and I feel like I can pick up on it immediately. Is this really weird? It sound pretty weird now that I have typed it out.

It varies person to person. Most people need 5 sleep cycles to be healthy, and these are on average 90 min. So that makes the average healthy time 7.5 hours. So you might be fine with just 4 (6 hours) or you may have really short sleep cycles. Probably the former option though. The best advice is to really listen to your body and compare how you feel with 6 hours versus 7.5.

You have to be proactive or it’s only going to get worse. Start listening to opinions that differ from yours just to try and break out of your bubble. I don’t mean go listen to a Bernie rally or something, but go pick up a book like Siddhartha or The Eastern Church. Something that’s going to make you question the spiritual side of human nature. Most depressed people are very analytical people who reject all sorts of spirituality from their life in favor of being rationalists. You don’t have to really socialize yet if you don’t want, but just try to venture out if your comfort zone when you can. You need to be lifting consistently, you need to develop patience and discipline. The key to a happy life imo is living in tune with the things around you, given that they are reasonable.

I don't even know what I want anymore. I genuinely hate being social. I get a lot of looks from girls and I lost my virginity to a female housemate who was basically the first woman I had properly met / got to know.

Outside of opportunities for sex I get nothing out of social interactions, may as well be honest here, sure as shit can't say it IRL. I come from a dysfunctional family where there was constant fighting and arguing at home, I don't know if that has anything to with it. I was so worn out from my parents that I preferred being alone. spent most of my teenage years as a hermit only leaving the house for school (sat on my own for nearly 3 years) realised eventually Id have to make some kind of living so started leaving more.

im behind socially and people just really haven't been nice to me over the years. I'm fully aware that I'm a strange person and I see it as dishonest to pretend I'm something I'm not. I am serious, I don't smile, if people knew the shit I've been through they wouldn't smile much either.

so yeah, pretty much given up on trying to make friends

i'm an emaciated 5'9", 135 pounds at 27 years old. obviously this is ridiculous and i should be at least 20 maybe even 30 pounds heavier (i think i have a pretty small frame so low weight would happen regardless, my wrists are about 5.5-5.75 inches circumference, yes im serious) but i just don't like eating. i dont know how its possible, i dont think i have an eating disorder... i just dont like doing it, its like my body rejects it and doesnt care

ill be starving in the morning when i get to work, try to eat a simple bowl of oatmeal with milk and peanut butter and just give up eating it halfway through, like i get tired of it. i eat basic ass lunches usually revolving around some sort of small sandwich every day. my dinners are pretty small as well. i probably eat literally less than 1500 calories every day and have basically my entire life

i dont know if this was a mindset established by my parents in childhood who let me eat a bowl of cereal every morning as my only breakfast, a shitty sandwich at lunch and having small dinners where they would restrict me from eating more if i was hungry so they could have leftovers to not have to cook. i remember when i went to college with an all you can eat cafeteria i gained about 20 pounds (to my current weight ive kept since then) within the first few months. but i definitely cannot comprehend these people who say they can't stop eating and get really fat. i literally don't think i have ever felt overly full in my entire life, even at something like thanksgiving. people say how they just eat nonstop during holidays and gain 10 pounds in a month, i dont think ive ever gained 10 pounds in a year outside of that college time

maybe im just too lazy. i dont know. anyone dealt with this who can advise? probably "dude just eat lmao"

come on man, obviously it would be bad to get fat, but i highly doubt this is going to happen to me being 27. and it isnt like eating to get out of skelly level will make you overweight. i wonder if maybe this is a result of my miserable life i've had forever, like instead of overeating a bunch of shit like people do in depression, i do the opposite and just dont eat at all.

Anyone ever have those periods where they just "shut down"? I'm a stupid worthless incel loser, but I'm not one of those ones who just sits in a corner never talking to anyone. I'm weird but I'm actually relatively talkative and joke around a lot, make people laugh, I'm just too weird, aloof, and angry/mean I guess to make any friends or relationships. But every so often, I'd say every 2-3 weeks, I just go into periods where I completely shut down into basically a mute. At work, barely speak more than a few words to people, don't talk to anyone, no joking around, nothing, leading people to ask what's wrong with me. I don't know why, something just comes over me

Peanuts shouldn't be too expensive, they'll do in a pinch. Also don't forget the almighty egg. If you can handle beans, those are good too but might mess with your stomach.

Just mind you don't go overboard with just fat, get your protein.

Do your best!

Hey /sig/, I've been on the path for self improvement for a while now, and I've been making some good progress for a while now. I started meditating and looking after my nutrition, found a cute girlfriend that loves literature even more than me, and generally have been a more stoic person.

The only issue I've been having is lifting. I'm 21 years old and I'm cursed with a skinnyfat body of my own making, because I only read and never did any sports in my earlier youth.
There is so much conflicting information regarding if I should cut or bulk first and what kind of programm to follow. Should I go full skelly mode first or become chubby with some muscle?
I have access to a bench, squat rack, ez curl bar and some dumbells in my home.
>>
>>50025733
You should get into a gym and start lifting. Don't worry about cut and bulk bullshit. It literally does not matter. Just stop being a faggot and do heavy compounds. You can run whatever fucking program you want as long as you lift heavy, with occasional high volume.
>>
>>50025738
Thanks, that sounds true. I just need to lift weights and I'll make gains somehow.

You'll make great gains, I am sure. We are all capable of powerful, beautiful bodies.

To point you in the right direction, I would suggest basing your routines around some core exercises which should be:
>Pullups
>Rows
>Deadlifts
>Overhead press
>Squats
>Dumbell bench press
I might have left a few out, but to me these are crucial.

I would also suggest:
>Farmers carries
>Heavy rack pull/shrugs
>Turkish get ups
>Sprinting
>Power cleans
>Upright rows
>Face pulls
>>
>>50025848
Also, try and mix up rep ranges and weights. A great app that I have used is "Strong". A lot of lifting success is in progressive overload. By tracking your previous weights and making an effort to lift more weight or do more reps with each week or month will go a long way.
>>
>>50025848
>>50025860

Thanks mate, I really appreciate it. How important is form vs weight in the beginning? I know I'll never reach perfect form as a novice lifter, but is it worth sacrificing weight for better form or vice versa?

Also that album is goat, you have great taste.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008NC7QQS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s01?ie=UTF8&th=1

I never feel like I eat as much peanut butter as I do, so roughly 3,500 Calories and roughly 135 Protein a day. I know it's not what I SHOULD be getting everything I need from but between the oatmeal, vitamins and supplements I am getting ALL the nutrients and minerals a person needs a day. Potassium I reach with the peanut butter. I know flax seed isn't as good for you as fish oil because while your body can synthesis alpha linolenic acid into EPA and DHA it can only do so at a rate of less than 1% to, in the best case, roughly 9% to the amount you took, but I have a fish allergy and the plant-based supplements seem iffy to me (though I know fish get EPA and DHA from algae, I'm just superstitious due to my condition).

I certainly feel better since eating again. I'm a shut-in with little money and basically no means of getting anything outside of the mail because otherwise I'd eat better and GOMAD. As for now, all I drink is water. The shut-in cannot be fixed, but I have plenty of space to freely move around. R8.
>>
>>50026022
Well, I actually need to eat more oat meal and peanut butter to get my Potassium a day, but I'm 71-75% there! I get everything else. I'll fix that by eating more once I'm more accustomed to eating once again.

>>50026022

Yep, big spoon fulls I try and eat as quickly as possible with water. It's not pretty, but it gets the job done.

Absolute shit diet man, -100/10. Get a job, or at least a better one, and try and get over your shyness/social anxiety. Start by going to the grocery store and getting actual food, when you have the money:

>chicken thighs
>bags of rice
>bags of dried beans (black, pinto, chickpeas, etc)
>potatoes
>lentils
>carrots and onions
>frozen broccoli
>natural peanut butter (the kind you have to stir)
>eggs
>oranges to prevent scurvy

I can pretty much guarantee you that this stuff will be as cheap if not cheaper than the other stuff you eat, and it will be better for you. I'm also telling you this because you are going to get sick of eating this same shit every day (20 tablespoons of jif peanut butter are you a fucking golden retriever???(The maruchan noodles aren't helping, even without the sodium those noodles aren't very high quality, shit calories desu))

Just buy actual food, don't buy everything at once, build up a pantry that you only have to restock every once in a while.

Best of luck man.

Completely different anon here but thanks. I came to /fit/ to look for some diet advice.
>>
>>50027376
I basically posted a very commonplace "healthy+frugal" shopping plan, if you have extra funds to spend on good food there are other things you can eat that are healthy, pretty much anything you can buy at the grocery store that you have to cook from a raw/semiraw format with the least amount of processing (breads obv are ok in small amounts) is good to go. Don't forget to buy spices and cooking oils.
>>
>>50027294
>and try and get over your shyness/social anxiety.
I'm actually quite the outgoing individual to the point of having no trouble with ad-libbing public speaking, but I'm also a violent schizophrenic. I am missing parts of my brain. There is simply nothing to be done about that. However,
>rice
Seems like a shit thing to eat compared to oats in every way expect unit cost (price per serving), but still seems shit nutritionally but for what it's famous for, thiamine.
>bags of dried beans
No excuse here, I just don't know how to cook. I also don't know how the price would come out in that, but the nutrition would probably be tops.

Too be honest, the rest of everything on your list is either a messed up ratio between what you get for the cost or is just otherwise nutritionally defunct.
>are you a fucking golden retriever
More or less.
>Just buy actual food,
I have 200 sheckles a month, my man. I can get 336 servings of nutritious oats for 72.52. 400 oz of nut for 29.10-54.44. I will probably just switch the noodles for more oats. I'm was and am still more concerned with getting pure nutrition before calories, and that's why oats are great. If I wasn't interested in micros, I would buy a tub of palm oil.

give me some credit because I am eating oats AND peanut butter. I don't know. The rest of my nut will arrive in the mail tomorrow and then I can start moving my bones. This is not my first time exercising but it will be the first time I do so without weights. I worked out for a year when I was in high school, put on 20lbs and became the best runner at the school but then lost it all to homelessness. Here's hoping I still give a fuck.

i feel like trash. I'm so fucking worthless as a man. I want to enjoy the Sisyphean struggle but its hard to not be bitter when I have zero wins under my belt and an endless loss streak. I just want a girl to hold me and tell me its alright bros, someone to provide for and to give me a reason to be around. My life has been a turbulent shitstorm as long as I can remember, and I gotta be fair to myself for sticking it out this long and being relatively successful. But none of that shit matters. With no one who i want to share it with, it's worthless. Being alone for too long ruins you, man. it feels like you're failing your very purpose in life. Its like every failure is one step closer to me checking out for good.

I understand how this has made you feel like a failure of a man. But try and see the bigger picture. Think of this event as a signal, as in a mechanical system. When the control system of a car senses the speed has dipped below the goal, the computer will send a signal to the throttle to increase the fuel supply to correct the error. The woman that left you is a signal that you are not what you needed to be in order to achieve what you desired. This may mean two things:
1. You need to work on yourself as a man. This may mean improving your social skills, your confidence, your social standing or you physical appearance.
2. You need to aim at different things in life as what you aimed at was not meant for you.

Take it as a lesson. Also, cut ties with this broad. If you told her how you feel and she left with the other guy she is obviously not concerned with your wellbeing.

Keep at it, don't give into apathy. You can improve. This life is good and holds joys.

Listen to me man, I know how it feels, I've been through it many times myself, like many others before us have; and will again. You need to realise that there is nothing special about this girl of yours. You're not in love with her, you're in love with the idea of having a girlfriend. You are deluding yourself and basing your wellbeing on another persons opinion of you. If you continue going down this road you will be hurt again and again, until you realise that women shouldn't ever be the source of your happiness, but a nice byproduct of having a good life. Even if you have to see her in the future, see this as an opportunity for growth, enjoy the pain and stop giving her any attention. She is the one who missed out on getting you, not the other way round. If you stay on your mission like a man, proud and grounded in yourself, you will find quality women that crave your company. The ironic thing is that, at that point, you'll realise that all your expectations were based on a fantasy, and you'll be happy regardless if you are alone or not.
We're all in this together and we're all gonna make it.
Godspeed anon.

Hey guys, do any of you use Dailyo or something similar? It's an app that is supposed to be used as some sort of diary. You register things you've done, and the way you're feeling in a scale of 1 to 5, quite customizable.

I struggle with mood swings and rage control in my day to day environment (shitty family situation), so I thought about using it to have perspective and see if I can get some meaningful results I could learn from

I'm too lazy and a lot of times I feel like I don't have much to register in it though. I'll do it for a few days and then forget.

Anybody does something similar about registering their moods daily? I'd like some reference about a ''''workflow'''' for this thing
