  1. Long time since last post! My main activity every day is studying the mental coaching course. This is about 2-3 hours a day. I really enjoy the material and understand how it can be useful for others. In the meantime I can practice what I've learned with a group of poker players I'm coaching. Currently doing about 3-5 calls a week. My other activties consist of learning chinese and creating a youtube channel. Chinese is about 4 hours of class and 4 hours of study every week. My main focus is to start spending more time on doing work for the youtube channel, mainly with getting better at presenting (enthusiasm, tonation, articulation etc), learn video editting, research and writing content.

  2. Reading books in your field of interest. If you have nature around you, long evening walks. You can consider to replace youtube with Gaia. Or create a little project for yourself, an old interest that you never really explored. learning an instrument, building a website, painting, building wooden birdhouses, you name it.
  3. A couple of times a year I have a period of about 1 or 2 weeks with migrain. It's a bit random when and why it happens. I guess it usually happens when I focus on too much stuff or feel a little stressed. For the last 2 weeks I had this migrain but since a couple of days it starts feeling better, and it seems to be almost totally gone now. So what did I do last 2 weeks: // Still doing a chinese course every tuesday and thursday, and an extra practice hour with the other two students every sunday. // I had two mental coaching appointments. I recorded the calls and relistened it to analyse how it went. Overall happy with it. Improvement points: More structure Allow more time for clients to formulate their thoughts Using less terms that can be viewed as an opinion from my side More open questions, less steering Consider using videocall instead of normal call. Normal call misses the option to use and read non-verbal communication // Wrote another article, about taking short breaks while gaming. // Continued with the mental coaching course. The first part of the course was a bit boring; rules, laws, ethics and so on, but it starts getting interesting now.

  4. Some very interesting developments this week. A good friend of me contacted me if I'm interested to mental coach a group of people that are playing poker for him. I'm not at all finished with the mental coaching course, but I do have 10 years of poker experience and I'm aware of all the ups and downs poker brings. This is a great oppportunity to practice with mental coaching. I still very much like poker, and this way I can combine it with my other interests. This also fits perfectly in the idea of "making small bets" from the life purpose course. And if things go well and i really like it, this might turn into a long term project. Friday I will have my first appointment, monday the second one. Last week I've spend the majority of my time researching and writing about the mental aspects of poker and preparing for the appointments.

  5. haha oke, that sounds pretty rare yeah
  6. Getting more and more into a productive working mood. I think it's mainly because of a more structured routine. I'm really happy with the chinese class. Compared to the previous class this one is much better. We are with only 3 people in the class, so it's very interactive. I wrote an article about having a warm-up routine for gamers (see here if interested). Again lots of positive responses, and about 25 new subscribers to my channel! I did the 4 day detox, and I have to say, it wasn't that big of a change for me. I had a bit of a hunger feeling all days, but other than I didn't notice to much of a change. I will try another detox in a while, a bit more intense one.

  7. Attended my first ToastMasters 3 days ago. I like the concept and will probably become a member. Tomorrow my new chinese course will start, it will be twice a week for 2 hours, and some homework. I also found a practice partner for the mental coaching course, this will be about 1 hour a week. Currently writing a new article, the topic is warm-up routine for gamers. I bought a detox program, it starts tomorrow and is 4 days long. So only certain juices and soups for 4 days. And also only specific food (vegan, non-processed, no wheat, and so on) starting 2 days before the detox and till 2 days after.

  8. Time flies lately. I thought I didnt post here for 3 or 4 days, but its already 10 days haha. Had some nice social activities; visited an amusement park with my boyfriend and two other friends. Played some darts and pool, had some nice dinners. Really nice those activities are possible again. Although, the covid numbers seem to be rising again in Europe, so I'll mentally prepare myself for less of those activities. ToastMasters reached out to me, and hopefully I can attend my first meeting soon. For the gamers here, I wrote a lengthy post about tilt in gaming: https://www.reddit.com/r/summonerschool/comments/ht2otf/gamers_guide_to_tilt_what_is_tilt_how_and_why/ I will write more of these posts in the future. It helps me to better understand these topics, and I can use the content for my youtube channel.

  9. Getting back in my old yoga rhythm, really happy with it. The yoga place took good measurements to keep if safe. The idea for now is to go 3/4x week. I used to read books and do meditations from Rupert Spira on a very regular basis, but for some reason I stopped doing that for a while. Now I have started it again, and I really wonder why i didn't do it for a while. Really love all his material, his way of speaking and writing is a form of art. A couple of months ago I signed up for 2 events of Rupert Spira later in the year (september and december), I hope they won’t have to be cancelled.

  10. Good to hear!
  11. When I made the last post I had the feeling I was getting back to full energy again, well, that was not the case haha. I wanted to start working on the mental coaching course I bought, but last 2 weeks I spend a total of 2 hours on it. So the productivity was not at all what I wanted. I did have quite some social activities though, so that's also worth something. Still some interesting developments Finished my 90-day affirmation/visualisation challenge (20 minute every day, not skipping a single day) Got my first youtube video online, it's a short trailer about what the channel is gonna be about. completed the chinese exam with good result Focus Points: Scheduling!

  12. Does your job satisfy you? Does it challenge you? It's hard for us to give some concrete advice, but a psychologist or a life coach can certainly help you. Do you know what you value most in life? If no, go find this out. If yes, how can you align your life more with these values?
  13. Bit of a slow week. Had some problems with sleeping and had migrain for a couple of days (usually have this a couple of times a year). So didn't really worked as much as I wanted to. But besides that, still some interesting developments. I already had cut down my caffeine intake to 1 cup a day, but after doing some more research I've decided to totally quit caffeine earlier this week. (maybe that triggered the migrain). Also, I've bought a mental coaching course, this will probably take 200-250 hours to finish. The idea is to spend about 2 hours a day on it, maybe that's a bit on the optimistic side, but let's see. I've created a youtube channel, I want to start posting videos at the end of 2020/early2021. It will be about improving mindset for gamers, to perform better and more importantly enjoy the game more.

  14. So my focus really was only poker for a long time. I started to develop other interests, mostly because I wanted to apply this in combination with poker, simply to get better (mindfulness, personal development, spirituality). And then at a point there was a mindset shift, or realisation, that I want to contribute more than I'm currently doing with poker. The way the general public views poker is rather negative, so yeah it can be difficult with friends and family. In the end they just want the best for you and there limited knowledge of the game makes them believe it's a poor career choice (which it actually is for many people, but that's another topic) Just realise that all these things you have done till this point can be valuable in other apsects of life aswell. I haven't finished my study, I have no work experience, but that's oke. Everyone has things they are interested in and things they are good at.
  15. I got a respons from Toast Masters, but they are not taking any guests for this month. I want to practice communication skills in the mean time, so I've decided to create a daily habit of recording videos. 5 to 10 minute about subjects that interest me, and without the intention of showing anyone the videos. I think this will really help to become a better communicator if I work on it every day. Last week I shared my morning routine. Here is my before bed routine: 1 hour before bed activate brainless mode No phone no screens no chatting about deep topics no thinking activities (scheduling, brainstorming, just thinking in general) no non-fiction books Dim the lights brush teeth Listen to a fiction audiobook (anything fiction aslong as it's just just easy to follow) 10/15 minutes calming yoga while listening to the audiobook 10/15 minutes meditation (either bodyscan or progressive muscle relaxation) other notes: No caffeine 10 hours before bed time no food 3 hours before bed time maintain same bed hours get out of bed quickly after waking up focus points Mental coaching material Recording daily video Reading books I'm grateful for Practiced a 15 minute presentation with my friend Motivated & focused Strong habits
