We have the social skills advice, fit threads and what not but I want a general purpose thread for encouraging comrades to get ahead.
How to be resilient in the wake of capitalism, READ READ READ, discipline, batina and such other things, how to help those around you. Also share inspirational stories

Read for as long as you can handle, be it 30 minutes or an hour, but make sure to make a habit out of it. Also, make sure to take plenty of notes, helps me digest what I'm reading a lot better.

Yeah just do it bro, there's no easy answer. Try to do just 10 minutes of reading, without checking your phone, zoning out, build from there.

What matters is reading consistently; turning it to something that starts to fit into your agenda, rather than reading many/few pages at a time.
Instead of grabbing a phone when bored, pick up your book, which you should carry out whti yourself.

Without buying anything you'd need to change things like how bright the screen is, what colours are displayed etc. I even put on the night light mode sometimes as I find it's easier on the eyes
If you dont mind spending a little? Buy an E-book ASAP

Anons, are there any scientific books, like textbooks perhaps, concerning self improvement? In the last few years I've read a lot of books about it, and the thing that perplexes me that wherever I go I often find stuff that is pretty controversial. There is a textbook called applied psychology which reviews many career or study techniques in the area of general science which I pretty much liked. Is there anything like that concerning diet, exercise, habits or/and studying? I'm a bit tired of reading journalists and not being ultimately sure if I'm reading a hack or a serious writer.

Also, how does the commodification of science influence the areas like the above mentioned dietetics, exercise science, applied psychology and so on?

I am generally quite keen on self improvement but all those mistakes and uncertainities waste a lot of my time and burn my motivation.

I don't know about "scientific" but if you can get past the "Bro you can get 38 times better at ANYTHING bro it's just that easy" then Atomic Habits does a good job providing you with a framework of how habits form, change, and how you can get rid of or create new ones. It's also a fast read, super short and most of the book is anecdotes anyway, plus there's little to no pure ideology to roll your eyes at unlike most "self-help" bullshit

Self-improvement sometimes has to be forced, usually by your parents and if the parents are too soft do it then the state has to step in, maybe not force it but encourage(which is what China seems to be doing)

 No.26511

>>26510
I think you are confused, it is not "self-improvement" if it is forced by someone else. The whole point of "self-improvement" is that it is self-directed. That's why it is "self-improvement" and not just training.

>>27547
Masturbation can be a coping mechanism for other parts of your life not being good. Otherwise it seriously doesn't matter. Abstinence can help you be more mindful and practice restraint, which can help you be more open to delayed gratification. There are more immediate ways to improve your life more significantly than semen retention. Don't fall for that shit.
