What is Monk Mode?
Monk Mode is a popular a term within self-development practice that refers to a period of that time where life is focused on nothing but growth and discipline.
It is inspired by the practices of monks in monasteries, who follow a life of simplicity, solitude, and dedication to spiritual practice.
Some people adopt monk mode as a way to temporarily retreat from the distractions of modern life and to pursue a more intentional and meaningful way of living.
Monk mode can involve abstaining from certain activities or behaviors, such as consumption of alcohol or engaging in social media, in order to cultivate mindfulness, focus, and clarity.
For example, you might not watch TV or play video games, or you might not go to parties or see your friends as much. Instead, you might spend your time reading, writing, meditating or doing deeply focused work instead.
Monk mode can help you feel more peaceful and help you think more clearly and it's a proven way of taking care of your mind and your soul, like you'd go to the doctor to take care of your body.

The 3 I's
Your 3 I's are the foundation of your Monk Mode practice and this system gives you a Second Brain-like setup that's built for you to customize and populate infinite sub-pages with everything you need for Monk Mode.
Projects or other work-related stuff that you need to attend to or get done on the regular that usually requires isolation and dedicated focus.
Meditation, reflection, reading and other inwards-related things that you need to organize and practice regularly often resulting in greater introspection.
All the (often physical) things you want to improve like exercise, stretching or even fasting that require making the choice to improve.
