Challenge yourself to stop doing these things for thirty days:

Stop using Facebook. That's an extreme (for most people). If you really can't live without it, try to schedule very little time for it, like max. 2 hours a week. You will finally notice you have tons of time to do something constructive and meaningful.

Stop masturbating. I know you read tons of articles on how masturbating actually good for your health. But challenge yourself to do this is more a mental training than a physical training. Train your mind to be the master of your body, not the other way around.

Stop your sugar intake. We all know sugar is bad for our body. If you don't know this yet, read this. Stop chocolate, cakes, sweets, ice-cream and everything else that contains refined sugar. Opt for fruit and honey (not too much too) instead.

Stop comparing. I believe this is one of the hardest challenges, since often times, we compare ourselves with others without even noticing it. Try your best to stop evaluating yourself based on others' standards once you notice what your mind is doing.

Stop blaming. Start telling yourself this: "I'm responsible for everything that happens to me." And stop pushing the responsibility to someone else. Think about how you can deliver more value to your employer if you think you're not being appreciated. Evaluate yourself first if you keep having disagreements with your spouse. Stop blaming something and someone else.
