Book review: Unfu*k Yourself

When it comes to life, I personally believe in taking a real hard look at the situation(s) you're in and being realistic with yourself. This book is all about taking a realistic approach to your life, no matter what situation you're in. 

Everyone in life has problems. You could have all the money in the world but it will never make you happy if you're not happy with yourself. You really need to work hard on yourself as an individual and being realistic with yourself is the first step.

Taking Control of My Phone Use

I am addicted to my phone. I take my phone everywhere (including the bathroom), I leave it on my desk at work, place in on the passenger's seat of my car, pull it out during dinner dates and functions, and I never ever ever leave my house without it. After reading the book How to Break Up with Your Phone by Catherine Price, I felt the urge to know exactly how, when, and why I use my phone. For an entire day I wrote down every single moment that I picked up my phone. I pick up my phone the second I wake up, look at it though breakfast, take it to the bathroom with me while I get ready for work, hold it in my hand when I’m in the elevator, check it before I pull out of the parking garage, look at in the drive thru, pick it up when I park my car at the office, and take a quick glance before I turn on my laptop at work. And that is all before 8:00 AM.
