5 Anti-Procrastination Tips

I’ve dealt with it, I’m sure you’ve dealt with it, it’s really a very serious problem that affects a lot of us everyday. The severity of this issue varies from person to person, but I am willing to bet that it has come into everyone’s life at one point or another. It’s that feeling we get when we really don’t want to do something, when we would do absolutely anything to avoid it.

A hint: I even had this issue before starting this very post. It’s a little thing called Procrastination. 



5 Zoey-valuated Anti-Procrastination Tips:

Small chunks – Sometimes a project can seem scary, so putting it off is quite tempting. So, breaking it into small chunks definitely helps! 

Eliminating – Getting rid of the TV, computer, etc. really helps me on occasion.

Help – There’s nothing wrong with asking someone to help you out. Someone to work with, or even just someone to encourage you. 

Work spot – Finding a new place to sit could help shake things up. You know, new perspective and all..

End game – This one always helps me! Reminding myself of how awesome I’ll feel when I’m done, it’s really a great trick! For example, when I started writing this post, I reminded myself that I’m gonna feel so great when I click that ‘Publish’ button!

When have you dealt with procrastination? What has helped you with it? I’m always open to new ideas. Share away in the comments below! 🙂

    Somebody once told me that everybody procrastinates, only the area in which they do it, might be different from person to person. True, I think.

    So true Zoey, I do it too!! All good tips, especially the “breaking it in small chunks”. This has served me well over the last few months as we’ve been de-cluttering the house to sell it. I’ve made it a point to declutter one area (cupboard, drawer, room, etc) everyday! Now that it’s done I feel a sense of release and wonder why I waited so long…ah yes, because I procrastinate 🙂

    Yes to these tips – especially limiting distractions! I also have found that setting a timer for how long I will work for before I get to go grab a soda, or the a timer for how long I’m allowed to mess around on Facebook before getting started on work, has been very helpful!

    Great advice as always Zoey! As someone with ADHD I set alarms and timers for just about everything. Thank God for my phone. Life is so much easier when you just get your stuff done rather than procrastinating 🙂

    Your advice is definetly something I needed to see!! I tend to put things off until the last minute then find myself stressed trying to hurry the project along… I’m really trying to work on this and will apply some of your suggestions 🙂

    I have an issue with procrastination sometimes, too. I would try to find everything else to do but what I am suppose to be doing!! If I really want to get something done, I often go to the library; where it’s quiet and less distracting. I can work from home often but when those moments of procrastination hit all I want to do is either watch t.v. or roam the internet!!

    These are some great tips. I found that making study dates with friends at coffee shops is a great way to get my work for school done. Sometimes I just go crazy when I am sitting at home by myself trying to complete things on my own. Thanks for sharing!!
