re: yeah every day i intend to read instead of play games, and then once my tea is ready i'm like "nope".

What I tend to do in this case is lock down my devices when I first wake up. Make it as difficult as possible to fire up a game when you wake up and as easy as possible to just pick up a book.

If you play online games, disable your network connection for the first few hours of being awake. If single player games are more your style, I'm honestly not too sure how'd you prevent that 🤔 Potentially you could use child locks or some special scripts to prevent it from launching and giving you a notification "YOU SHOULD BE READING!" Or something like that 😅

For me it's the iPad and match-3 games. I had this app installed that would block internet access to blacklisted sites like facebook and twitter. That worked to keep me from playing games because most of them use Facebook to log in. But I learned that if the app was already open I could still play :P.

Hahaha, that's the biggest issue with locking yourself out. If you find a workaround, it's hard to bring yourself to fix it again, it's like cheating the system 😜
