Can’t Get Enough. . .#1

HabitRPG.

I first heard of this through Gamerwife, and tried it out. What is it? A ‘real life’ RPG. You create a character, make real to-do lists, and then for each item you check off, you earn experience and virtual rewards (think gear, items, in game gold, etc.) for your char. For the first couple weeks, I was very half-hearted about it. I didn’t input too many tasks, and hardly explored the site. But in the past couple weeks, I’ve really been using it to it’s fuller potential, and I am discovering virtual character rewards motivate me more than I thought. Lately, when I get stuck in the can’t-figure-out-what-to-do-so-let’s-wander-aimlessly mentality, I just refer to my lists on HabitRPG and actually accomplish something. I love the ability to add what I want, when I want.

To the left is my character and the others are all chars in my party. Isn’t my little shade panda cute?!

Is it silly? Slightly ridiculous? Absolutely. I am loving it. And actually using it for positive things. For instance, thanks to HabitRPG, I am now flossing my teeth every night, a task I used to loathe and rarely do. And while I still loathe it, I get the double whammy of knowing it is super good for my oral health, AND I get experience for it! So regardless of the fact that it’s a bit silly, I find it really works for me, and can’t get enough.

 

 

Can’t Get Enough is a series centered around sharing things I love. Be it websites, products, books or shows – anything goes! Now to figure out a schedule for it. . .

    Hahaha! I also use HabitRPG to force myself to floss! My favourite thing about the app is still the way you can group your habits and daily tasks and to-dos as separate things. I’m also very happy you joined our party! Things were getting a little mage heavy before you showed up, lol.

      Thanks for the invite! Excited to be able to deal damage to the world boss. . .though that seems to be going downhill quickly. >_< And I agree, the separate groupings are excellent.

    This sounds so rad. I always write to-do lists in my planner and forget about them. Need to check this out asap. Thanks for posting about it!

    This sounds interesting… I might have to give it a try!! i always make a daily list of things I have to do anyway… might as well level up a character at the same time, huh? 😛
