Who has not had difficulty with procrastination? Most people have experienced this challenge! Think about the local mall on Christmas Eve or the post office the day before April 15th.
Gentle reminders to help you refocus throughout the day can be helpful. Ask yourself one of the following questions periodically during the day:
… Are you doing what you need to do right now?
… How will you feel if you don’t do this particular task right now?
… Will it get any easier to do this task if you procrastinate… or will it get harder and more stressful?
If asking a question is not your thing, think about a simple statement such as: “Nothing feels better than doing what I need to do right now.”
Perhaps put it into your cell phone for easy access or, even better, set an alert on your phone so the reminder automatically appears throughout the day!
