I have been thinking about making this post for a while now. As I feel like Beeminder has a positive effect on my life. I started using Beeminder around May (I had created my account much earlier but never created a goal). The reason I had started using is I was in a slump. As in March 2020 I lost a family member I was close to unexpectedly (They were only in their 30’s). After that for about 2 months I had issues finding motivation doing any thing. I was on online College student but I was doing enough just to get by. I would take a shower maybe once a week if that. I just felt numb, I didnt want to do anything. I felt lazy and kind of useless.
I wanted to try to get back to doing things. So I decided to try Beeminder as I had remembered that I had created an account. I cant remember exactly when I started it but I know it was around May. I started some basic goals and it seemed to be effective. I started to create more goals and I started doing more and more. After a few months I felt a lot better I was being productive and felt happier, it really helped me cope better with the emotions I was dealing with by just doing things. Around July I created a GTbee goal to apply for I multiple jobs, as I had been putting it off due to fear of failure. Well I ended up getting a job because of that.
Recently I have been using Beeminder as a way to tackle my social media addiction (No Social Media For A Month (Need accountablity)). As one thing this year has taught me is that time with family and friends is irreplaceable.
Thank you for creating Beeminder, it has helped me a lot.
