Apperently, playing Chess is a hype. At least in the Netherlands it is. When the corona pandemic kept people stuck at home, (online) chess seemed a popular pastime for a lot of people. And when The Queens Gambit launched, even more people started playing. Online chess games have leaderboards where people can compete, and rank themselves amongst the world. At my current job, people play chess during their breaks regularly, ranking the store employees on the wall. Not much fun for me though, since I don’t really play. But luckily, there is a solution for that: Chessarama!
Do you struggle to keep up with simple tasks or are you having trouble remembering your chores? Or maybe you simply feel unmotivated to work on your good habits and quit the bad ones? I’ve always been the type of person who needed an extra boost of dopamine to do something, anything. Or I would only do things with other people, but neglect any type of solo task. I wouldn’t go on walks until Pokémon Go was released. And all of a sudden I was eager to go out there to catch Pokémon, walk to gyms, or walk to hatch eggs. If you recognize this particular type of getting motivated, you might want to check out Habitica. A simple, but fun and effective app to organize your goals and life.
