How to avoid Procrastination

How To Avoid Procrastination:

Did You Know…?

Procrastination can lead to stress? The long term effects of procrastination have been proven to be cause negative consequences more than anything else?
This week I’ll be discussing a little about procrastination. I think we’re all definitely a little too familiar with that term, am I right? Especially when we see those essays and projects or just our regular routine of our daily lives. Whether it’s your job, school or other events in your life, it’s hard to mantain a normal balance between work, school, social life, (we especially enjoy that one!), However, it’s alway smart to try to keep yourself from procrastination, and try to mantain a healthy balance, (without overworking yourself, of course!)

Here are some tips:

1.) Stay away from those social websites! And yes, Facebook and Twitter do count! It’s normal to check once in a while, but don’t overdo it!

2.) Instead of trying to write that essay that is due at 5:00pm that day and working on it at midnight might seem like a good idea, it will only drain you and might not get you the grade that you would like! Instead, why not trying to divide it by parts?

3.) Have writer’s block? Don’t stress over it! Go for a walk, enjoy nature for a little while, and don’t think about it! At the most unexpected time, it’ll come to you!

4.) There is nothing wrong with spending some time with your friends! However, make a compromise! Go out one day with your friends, and choose a day for your school work!

5.) Try some light exercise, listen to peaceful music, or read a book! Anything to limit that social network fix we always crave!

6.) Time management! Like I said before, divide it into parts, or do your research early. You will thank yourself at the end!

These are all things that can help you with procrastination! I know that these are easier said than done, however, one step a time, you can definitely achieve it!
