Rationalist Lent

It’s that time of year again. Pick some­thing to give up for 40 days as an ex­per­i­ment /​ com­fort zone ex­pan­sion. Post about it here. Good luck and have fun!

Edit: For any­one who wants it, here are some prompts for brain­storm­ing things to try giv­ing up (set a 5-minute timer for the brain­storm):

  1. What takes up too much of my time?

  2. What takes up too much of my at­ten­tion?

  3. What in my life is most out to get me?

  4. What su­per­stim­uli am I most at­tracted to?

  5. What in my life feels the most like pica?

And also for any­one who wants it, here are some con­crete sug­ges­tions for things to give up, in no par­tic­u­lar or­der:

  1. Video games

  2. Smartphones

  3. Face­book, Red­dit, etc.

  4. Sugar

  5. Caffeine
