mental toughness is different to physical. You can have either, both or neither.

Picked up that Matt Haig book and started it this morning - got through the first 60 pages and very much enjoying the style it's written in (it's rather conversational). A couple points on anxiety I've found interesting but the rest I don't think is anything new, but this is good, it's good to be reminded of the stuff he's covered so far.
Well worth picking a copy up so shoutout to whoever mentioned it earlier in the thread.

That Matt Haig book is £2.63 on Google play for anyone interested.

Anyone stuck to theirs?
I've not drank since New Years Eve and also joined the Headspace meditation hype - 10 day streak.
Not going to lie, but not buying stuff I failed miserably. Shame.

Not had a beer and don't intend to for a good while.

story so far;
not buying shit is way harder than eating clean and exercising
managed it so far though
still living off the last few deliveries from the late 2018 shopping binge though
last item arrived from japan today so now fully sober

No instagram, no booze, meat free, running to and from work. All going well for me.

I'm 8 days clean but I'm worried that I'm about to fall off the wagon on some ridiculously spicy Missoni swimming shorts.
I don't even have any holidays booked.

Also trying to do the no buy in 2019.
So far have bought a Tux (got a few weddings coming up) so feels justified and not going to count essential purchases.
For those trying to do the same, bear in mind that January will be the hardest month with all the 'further reductions' and EXTRA20 codes. Also there was a FUKer a few pages back who said they managed to go all year without purchasing anything but the temptation never really goes away.
Definitely have a problem though as I'm purchasing other shite that I don't need like a GoPro and looking into Sonos (no paid for by parents).

2018 was my year of reduced clothes spending.
It went well, but I now look at my wardrobe and think it's a bit like Arsenal, in a dire state from year(s) of negligent under-spending.

I do that, think of my wardrobe as a squad.

I love it when a bargain journeyman (picked up from Serie A) that you've had sitting on the bench for ages suddenly hits a streak of form and becomes a star player that you can sell on for a tidy profit.
