So which immediate reward I can create for myself, let's say to exercise more? Because naturally it doesn't bring any immediate rewards and even vise versa, you feel rough, you don't improve your looks for many months. So what should it be? A Mars bar after a workout? :)

I was used to criticizing myself to motivate, but when time goes on, I began to blame myself, and feel very bad, even don't want to change a bit. Now I am searching the suitable way to inspire myself, finding that reward is a better way to motivate people, so I plan to reward and compare to inspire myself, come on. achieve: Find one way to motivate already!

Warnings induce inaction, while social incentives, immediate reward and progress monitoring do for action. if you want to motivate yourself, the latter is better.

When considering eating healthy, you have to never fall victim to modern day fad diets. Extreme diet plans undoubtedly are a risk for your health, especially ones that seriously restrict your every day nutritionary intake. Many of these fad diet plans work for a short time period and then the benefits decrease after a while. You should look up Okibetonic Secrets on google since it is not just another fad diet where you starve yourself.

I'm the 10% that would have washed my hands every single time. What about us? I do it because it would be wrong not to. I don't care about the social thing or people knowing. And I know germs don't care about what people think. Am I an alien in this world? Does any of this video apply to me or only to the people who don't care about doing the right thing unless others know about it and reward them with something as useless as a screen lighting up?

I always feel al ittle sorry for academics, i.e. grad students, professors and PhD.s, because A. they never learned how to present (OMG, they're awful) and B. they never learned to dress themselves. They all look like it's Laundry Day on campus. It's easy, but not cheap, meaning: You have to INVEST some of your hard earned dough. Then go to the richest clothing store AND hair (nails & skin and makeup for women) business in your town and find a salesperson who "gets" you, ie. you get along with. And then - and this is key - LISTEN TO WHAT THEY TELL YOU!!! But let me summarize it for you, very generally, okay? 1. WASH YOUR FACE BEFORE GOING ONSTAGE (same goes for your teeth & hair) Adopt a "zero tolerance for grease" policy. The lights pick it up and amplify it. Really. 2. WEAR CLOTHES AN "EXPERT" HAS PICKED OUT FOR YOU (don't trust yourself, or anyone you know. You don't cut your own hair, do you?) 3. DON'T CUT YOUR OWN HAIR - Go to the experts (see above) 1-2 weeks BEFORE your speaking engagement. 4. WATCH SOME PRESENTING VIDEOS - there must be a few free ones here on YouTube... 5. IT'S OKAY TO BE NERVOUS, *BUT NOT OKAY TO TELL US ABOUT IT.* We know. We're waiting for it to wear off so you can get to the Good Stuff. It will, and you will. Trust me, it'll happen. You being nervous makes the whole audience uncomfortable. We can't WAIT until it wears off. Until then, we understand. Just get to the Good Stuff! (That means when you're engaged and just thinking about the subject matter.) That's why someone here invited you here, after all. That's why there are all those people sitting out there. We want to hear what you have to say! There's my brief discourse on Public Speaking. Well, really just How to _prepare_ for public speaking. It's pretty basic, really: just try to LOOK THE PART. Please! Organizing your subject matter is child's play compared to standing up in front of people and speaking. You'll do fine because you already know this stuff better than anyone else in the room. And, presumably, you really like it. Unbeatable combination, you don't need much training to really shine! But...you do need a little.

OMG!!!! I have been struggling with getting myself to study and study consistently. Every day I feared and my brother warns me that if i do not, I will fail to good GPA and therefore a good college. But all that fear has been giving me nothing but stress and I knew that. I did not know how to change it for thinking positive is not so easy. As I was watching this video and heard the medical staff washing hands example, an idea struck to me. I put up a chart and every time I do something productive or good, I'll give myself a star. I have tired this before but it was that I would make myself a butterfly but making a origami butterfly took too much time whereas a star is instant and hence makes me happier. Thinking about getting more stars made me want to do questions but the moment I thought about how if I do not do them I will not be able to make it made me sad and kind of paralyzed again. The moment I put up the chart I got three stars. One for getting the idea of doing so and hence figuring out a good solution to the problem, 2 for making my friend smile, and three for how I resisted cheating on the test today when I easily could have. Now that I am thinking about it there are so many things I do everyday that deserve stars. God I'm happy!!! Tears of JOY! 😭😭😭😭 I thought I will cut every star for making a mistake but I don't wanna ruin my chart. What should I do? Should I cut every star for slipping up or not? It's okay to slip up at times. I don't want to be afraid of making mistakes. Okay so I will not cut any star but for every slip up, a potential star would be reduced. So I would have also have chance to take responsibility and make up for my mistakes. But 3 slip ups cause no stars for the day.
