What It Really IsEdit
Procrastination is a large habit to wait for things to take place right before it is too late to do it, whether it be organizing books, cleaning your home, or writing an essay. Procrastination can be easily stopped (which you will later on read about), but it also is very dangerous, because it brings out stress and other things that are not wanted (which will be found in the next section). Giving things in or doing something the last minute is really your mind's thoughts on tasks. You mentally will believe you can pull things off right before it is over, but many times it will not be possible to do so.
Affects on ProcrastinationEdit
Procrastination can lead to serious affects, and other bad habits as well. The main point these things are categorized in is stress. Procrastinating can lead to stress when doing something right before it is due, since it will make you think that you will not be able to finish in time, which leads to an increased heart rate. But what about other habits? Procrastination leads you into the world of laziness, which later puts you through a phase where you will think that not doing anything at all is good for you. Habits such as not wanting to excercise, and not focusing clearly may take place, depending on how bad the procrastinatating case may be.
Coping With ProcrastinationEdit
There are many ways to cope with your procrastination. We have taken some bits from WikiHow and a video talking about dealing with it, and had made an easy manual. This, along with the video, can be found below:
1. Talk to yourself about why it is happening, find a nice, quiet, and peaceful place where you can think where the procrastination is coming from.
2. Plan out a schedule. This is important so you do not loose track of time. Create a time schedule where you can do work, and then take a short break so that you do not tire yourself out, and you are still fair to your body.
3. Finish the little tasks first. Complete the tasks you beieve are easier first so that your brain is excited about the work you are about to do. Starting off with the long, and tiresome tasks can lead to you not wanting to do anything.
4. Stop thinking about procrastination. When you think about it, you feel like you should try your best to daydream on the results of you doing something. This wastes time, and often leads to not doing the task at all.
5. Practice. Continue working on maintaining your schedule, and having a balanced time to just relax. Soon your procrastination habits will be over... and you'll feel better about yourself and the different jobs you will need to do.
