He sounds kinda like a jerk, maybe consider leaving him. Another thing, get post-it sticky notes to remind yourself of things. Try using your phone too with an app like Google Keep and Habitica.
And use your phone alarm clock to set reminders so you don't get late (30 min before, 10 min before)
Ahh, you're right! Looks like Habitica was the culprit...which I just installed last night after seeing it on the front page of /r/android. Uninstalled and the notifications no longer appear. Reinstalled to confirm and they came back. Unbelievable.
Here's the link: [link]
I've jumped around from many to-do list apps, and this one encourages me to actually complete my list.
The app is currently in beta with some bugs, but they are getting them fixed quickly.
It probably isn't what you are looking for, but I honestly think the best is Habitica. It gamifies your chores, habits, tasks, etc. I use it to motivate myself to do projects, take care of my physical and mental health, and event to remind me to take out the trash. It has ligitimately made me a far more productive person. Oh, and it has a website.
I know you're already using Tasker for this, but Habitica seems to do something similar - though I think it's more geared towards doing positive things, than subbing yourself for doing negative things.
EDIT: Which is actually probably a better way of doing things, if you're looking to reinforce behaviour. I realise that you're looking to gamify your habits, but your point modifiers should be focused on positive reinforcement, considering you already have the potential negative outcome of not getting a high/target score for the day/week/month: Don't sub points from yourself for eating a burger, give yourself points for eating a healthy alternative, or for avoiding snacks for the day, etc. If you still have the burger, you don't lose points, but you don't gain points either, and your final score will reflect that.
Guilting yourself with point subtractions is more likely to have a negative outcome on your self-esteem (and thus willpower to keep up the positive behaviours) than anything else. Depending on your personal viewpoint, you might find yourself focusing more on your failures than your successes.
thought of this before, there is something similar that exists in the play store;
There are lots of great habit apps; it comes down to personal preference.
HabitHub was perfect when it came to focusing on maintaining a streak, which is its intended purpose. Seeing a wall of greens was a great feeling. However, when I started slipping with various habits, my past failures would be right in my face. It became harder to keep a positive attitude about the present and not dwell on past failures.
The current app I'm using (Habitica) subtly displays the current streak of my daily habits but mostly allows me to focus on the current day. It also has "To Dos" and non-daily habit sections. You can either get into the customizable RPG bits or ignore them.
Check out Habitica It makes habit forming into an RPG of sorts. They also have an Android app
Don't use your phone near the time you go to bed- turn it onto airplane mode and move it away from your bed. For the rest of the evening, use a blue light filter on your phone. Try not to think too hard, often if your brain is racing thinking about something you'll struggle to sleep. Try and experiment with different sleeping positions to see which one fits you best, and make sure your bed is comfortable for you and your duvet/mattress/pillow is best for you. To make yourself tired, you can exercise before bed. Don't feel resigned to the fact that you can't get to sleep earlier, set a time to go to sleep each night and stick to it. You can use Habitica or another application to motivate you to go to sleep earlier- you have to discipline yourself.
It's never too late to start revising- some revision will always be better than no revision. And you've still got AGES until your GCSEs and enough time to revise all the necessary content for your mocks too. To ensure you don't procrastinating you might want to use an app such as Habitica or Forest.
Everyone is in the same boat as you, stress is to be expected with exams and succumbing to procrastination lots isn't uncommon at all (I still do that all the time and did so during my GCSEs also)- but you still have time to improve so try to learn to avoid succumbing to procrastination and you'll do great I'm sure! Good luck in your mocks and your GCSEs!
It turns the whole thing into an RPG which gives you rewards upon completion of each task to level up in the game. There's a little more to it. Visit the play store.
Habitica: Gamify Your Tasks
It is a lot more than just a productivity app which helps you to manage your habits, daily tasks & goals based on Role Playing Game.
Here is the wikia site to know more about it.:
I just typed it in Google, it's an app on the Play Store. Here's their website:
Link to play store:
Looks like they also have a chrome extension that makes it so you lose points for browsing unproductive websites while gaining points for browsing websites that are productive. Seems like a pretty interesting app.
Habitica does what you want without the timer function, but you can specify when it needs to be completed by. The gamification aspect may hold appeal for someone younger.
30:30 is a great one for spacing out tasks and breaks, but you would have to get your head around the interface to log a long list of tasks, plus it is more a countdown timer than "complete this task by" app.
Either one, or a blend of both, could be useful though
[link] - Seems like it is iOS only but there are copycat versions on Android.
I believe I used to apply this method to to dos in habitica. It was a long time a go and the app has a lot of other stuff to gamify action items. I am not sure if that works in the current configuration.
I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for but I use Habitica and you can tag things morning, afternoon, and evening.
EDIT: These apps won't help you more efficiently switch through your games, but may help you out with your phone habits.
These aren't specific to gaming addiction (just phone addiction in general) but try "Habitica." and/or "Forest." Habitica gamefies your effort to create new habits or destroy bad ones while Forrest makes you plant a tree whenever you want to focus on something. It grows while you're in the app and dies when you leave it to check other apps. Kinda' makes it a challege as well.
Apps aside, I'd still recommend you to reduce the number of games in your device - remove the ones you aren't really enjoying anymore. (Or for an even more drastic measure, change to a device where you wouldn't be inclined to play, like a lower-end phone or one of those new Blackberries.)
Also, if you have time, maybe try to read Charle's Duhigg's book, "The Power of Habit," see if something helps you there.
Lastly, I am no expert, so take my words as a mere friendly advice and seek some help about your situation. It's extremely hard to go through this by yourself (That thing, I know for sure.).
Good luck, mate!
its habitica not habitice stupid autocorrect!
it also has a desktop website which is one of the reason i chose it.
app store link:
desktop version of the app:
I am no longer in college, but I have a lot of projects going on all of the time, chores I have to do daily, every other day, once a week, etc. I used to have a hard time managing it all, and an even harder time getting myself to do them. A few weeks ago I found Habitica from someone on here and it has helped tremendously. You enter in to-dos, dailies (which can be weekly, certain days, etc), and habits. It gamifies it all, so you take damage when you fail to do something on time, indulge in a bad habit, etc, and you get rewarded for doing your dailies, to-dos and reinforcing good habits.
It probably isn't exactly what you're looking for, but hopefully someone else here finds it as useful as I have. Oh, and it is open source with a website, an iOS client, and plenty of plug ins for other apps/websites/browsers/etc.
Yeah, It's free, you can use in your iphone or android.
>transforma as minhas metas pessoais em um joguinho.
Outro app muito bom que faz isto é o Habitica. Estou usando para recondicionar meu hábito de me alongar e estudar idiomas:
A decent alternative seems to be Habitica(IOS | Android) I was actually considering switching to this one at some point to continue interest (new game+ style). I'll probably do it when I change careers.
Habitica is a nice app you might want to look. It is a similar thing but instead of points you get virtual money that you could spend on stuff in the app.
I think Habitica might suit your needs. Personally, I use Loop Habit Tracker because FOSS (no ads!) and Habitica is kind of over the top for me.
My daughter isn't a kid but Habitica is fun and helps her to achieve chores and stuff like eating two fruits every day.
Habitica (previously called HabitRPG)'s official android app which just came out is absolutely beautiful and easy to use. I haven't seen anything like it. I can't believe they got so many of the features they had on the habitica.com and were able to shove it into such a small app with for a small screen and yet be extremely clear and easy to use. Its insane.
Did you just install Habitica? I had the same issue. It's a bug with the latest release of the app. The devs have pushed a fix for it but it hasn't been released on Google Play yet. Dev's emailed me and said a fix should be coming any day now. In the mean time your only option is to uninstall the app until they fix it.
You could use this app but that's only for yourself and select others I believe. Might be a start
Heh, you just reminded me of this "game"
I was looking for a habit tracking app with negative "consequences" for (not) doing something. Habitica seemed perfect, but it doesn't work offline. Then I found the relatively unknown Nomie and it's great.
Nomie tracks numbers which have a positivity value attached to them, i.e. doing the dishes gives me +1, smoking gives me -2. You can analyze the trackers, compare them, etc. The system is quite flexible, though a bit fiddly at times.
It's under active development, for example the next version will allow Tasker integration. The app is far from perfect (mostly I am missing a widget), but I've noticed changes in my habits because of it.
Edit: I don't know how to do fancified links.
Try out this app. [link]
Habitica works for some people.
You're looking for Habitica.
Habitica - An RPG-like habit tracker and to-do list.
Heads-up Notifications -Customizable heads-up notifications for all apps.
Helium App Sync and Backup - Backs up apps and app data, even when unrooted.
Hangouts - A great messaging app which Google will sadly kill off and replace with another app after a while. :(
Cool! They have it for Android also: [link]
Habitica is a good way to make doing routine things more rewards:
Thanks so much! I've been trying to get into Habitica, so some habit examples are really helpful. :)
My 2 cents to help the bot ;) [link]
Habitica for gamefying tasks etc
Habitica - This is what you're looking for.
There's a few options, it seems.
Habitica seems like an actual game that provides you with XP for doing real life tasks.
Life RPG seems like a game that takes real life and actually makes it the game.
Check both out, and use whichever you prefer!
EDIT: Also, here's the actual Level Up Life that I think OP was talking about!
Seems to be available on Google Play as well
would this be of any use? [link]
Woah cool concept
I don't know if it's for iPhone but here's android
Have you heard about Habitica?
Um organizador de tarefas gamificado como um RPG, onde fazer bons hábitos/tarefas te recompensam com XP e dinheiro e fazer hábitos ruins te tiram vida.
Tem para android, ios e web.
Cool! Mobile app, then? I'll have to check it out.
Here's a few, I've played something like habitica (but much simpler) before, and have used color note, I cannot attest to the rest. Each has its own advantage (more or less involved, collaboration with other users, cross-device account syncing).
RPG-like task/to-do lists:
Pretty detailed, level a character [link]
You're the character, your tasks level up skills, generate self-made rewards, etc... [link]
Similar to the two above but simpler [link]
Pin to home:
Can pin each note to home screen [link]
Microsoft One Note:
Can write notes from home screen without opening app (i believe uses widget)
Create reminders for each task, has a snooze option so you don't just ignore alarms.
Sort of a mix of above, allegedly simple and straightforward
Check out Habitica: [link]
So here's the link to the site and app itunes, play store and here's to the wiki for more information.
I second HabitRPG/Habitica that /u/succubusfutjab suggested. Also ZombiesRun.
Edit: MyFitnessPal. It's not a game as such, but it definitely has that achievements and stats feel. Plus correctly counting calories is the best way to lose weight.
Habitica: Web | Android | iOS
ZombiesRun: Web | Android | iOS
MyFitnessPal: Web | Android | iOS
Check out something like: [link]
is this what you are referring to?
If apps I don't open every day but which run every day count, then add:
List made using List My Apps
Possibly not relevant, but I found that using an app to keep track of the things I need to get done helps a lot. It keeps me focused on the things I need to get done. One I'm using is Habitica. It treats the to-do list and habits you're trying to make as a real life rpg. You get points for accomplishing the tasks on your list, and deducted for not accomplishing daily tasks. It actually made the whole process a lot more fun for me. I don't know if it'll help, but it's helped me a lot. Here are the links for iOS and Android
Not to talk down your app, but /r/habitica has helped me be a more responsible and healthy adult by "gamifying my life"
