What is Procrastination?

Have you ever experienced a scenario where you had to finish a project or complete an assignment by a certain deadline and even though you had every intention to do it, you found yourself getting distracted by many other things (watching TV, surfing the Internet, talking on the phone, etc.) instead? Are you someone who always leaves things to the last minute and often missing deadlines because of it? Are you just avoiding things you don’t want to do until the last minute because you don’t want to deal with them? If any of these situations sound familiar, you might be  someone who procrastinates.

Is Procrastination Treatable?

Procrastination is actually the absence of behavior. It can bring up feelings like anxiety, guilt, and frustration. Procrastination has many causes and each case has to be carefully assessed and treated, but there is hope. Learning how to change or behave regardless of these beliefs, can decrease anxiety, which in the long-term results in much less anxiety and more productivity. Each improvement in efficiency helps raise our sense of efficacy, making the next time a little easier.

Why Do We Procrastinate?

It is important to properly assess and treat procrastination, since it results in excessive work and intense emotional and cognitive turmoil.
