    So I'm 17 yrs old and stopped smoking cigarettes (haven't smoked for 3 days, smoked before that for about a year) and I would go to smoke inbetween classes but I've stopped going out bcos I dont smoke anymore
    I wander maybe its the socialization i get in front of the school that im missing or the nicotine
    So would it be bad or good to go outside and not smoke or bad bcos it could influence me to smoke
    Sorry for the long text

    I used to have habit of eating late at night. I have eaten 1-2 raw instant noodles after midnight more than once. (In my country we have the kind of instant noodles which are also edible and delicious to be eaten raw...but its not quite healthy anyway)
    Do you know what broke my habits? Breaking up with my bf broke that down tbh I have lost like 3/4 of my appetite i dont know why.
    But I still have 2 major bad habits that I’m trying to quit :
    -Staying up late watching useless videos on youtube (my worst time was when I stayed up until 5 am)
    -Can not focus on important stuff and always be distracted by youtube, twitter and instragram.
    Does anyone feels me? ;(

      Depends...if u think the day should be longer then see where are u wasting time and fill it with more interesting stuff....and if its the other situation where u just never feel tired its cause u dont do enough pysical activities. ( Basicly stop wasting time and/or find an interesting sport or something like that) i hope this helps :3

    Enjoyed rhe video but wasn't impressed by Blue Apron. Following a recipe is boring! Unless you're baking you never need to be precise when cooking. It's a creative process, what do I have in my refrigerator or freezer? Choose one or more. Hm, what's in my cupboard? Again, choose. Let's sautee, bake, fry or roast these ingredients or maybe toss them in a crockpot and serve it over basmati rice. Cooking should be fun like playing not a chore as doing homework.

    This also suggests that it would be good to develop a lot of good or at least reasonable habits in the first place from the earliest age that fill up a lot of our time. This leaves less opportunity to develop bad habits and also results in less brain activity and thus less brain fatigue. That leaves us with the capacity to do more brain intensive stuff with the remainder of our time, like more impactful or more difficult work, which we should do because humans also crave a certain amount of stimulation and novelty. So, a more planned out life. And if people need some time that's not planned when they can just do whatever, then plan for that too.
