I’ve always been one to procrastinate, I mean who doesn’t? We have tons of things we want to get done everyday, yet we just don’t seem to get around to doing them. There’s something about putting off an action until later that makes us feel good, even if its not really productive at all. One thing you can do though is make sure you stick to a schedule. This way you’ll know when you need to start working on the task at hand.
Make sure you’re getting enough sleep. If you dont’ get enough sleep then you wont be able to function properly, and will find yourself putting off tasks until later. Instead try making a set time each day to go to bed, and wake up. You’d be surprised how much you can accomplish when you’re well rested.
Do some deep breathing exercises before starting work. Deep breathing helps calm you down, and relaxes your body. This should help you stay focused throughout the rest of the day. Try to take a few minutes to breathe deeply before you begin any task, and you’ll notice how much calmer you become.
Break big tasks into smaller ones. When you first start thinking about a big project, break it up into smaller steps. By breaking it up into smaller steps, you’re less likely to procrastinate because you won’t feel overwhelmed. Another way to combat procrastination is to ask someone else to help you. Ask a friend or family member to help you complete a task, and they might end up helping you finish it faster than you would have otherwise!
Start small. Sometimes it’s easier to start something small, rather than taking on a huge project. Smaller projects tend to be completed quicker, and they’re often easier to manage. So instead of trying to tackle a massive project, try tackling it piece by piece.
Get started right away. Even if you think you won’t actually get around to finishing something today, you still should start it. Start a task immediately, and once you’ve gotten started, you’ll probably find that you’re motivated to keep going.
Keep track of what you did. Get a notebook and write down everything you do whenever you start a task. Once you get started, jot down anything that comes to mind while you’re working. Keep track of what you did, and look back at what you didn’t do on some days. You may be surprised at what you missed out on!
Plan ahead. Make a list of everything you plan to get done, and prioritize it based on importance. Prioritizing things will help you figure out what to tackle first. This way you’ll be more likely to get those tasks finished.
