Procrastination. Sigh. Nuff Said.

I dont feel Like it.jpg

 “It is a new year, things are going to be better this year, you’ve got this!” This is what I tell myself at the beginning of every school year, both when I was a student and now as an academic professional.

I am pretty good for a while and then…life….gets……..busy…and….I start…..procrastinating……..wildly.

Yes, procrastination happens to even the most adult, self-aware and psych nerdy people like me.

So, if are you interested in working on ways to avoid getting stuck in an

endless cycle of procrastination?


Learning how to get out of the gigantic academic procrastination sinkhole

that you tripped and fell into?

You have stopped by the right place!

I may be a master procrastinator, but I have definitely learned all the “tricks of the trade” that get me out of those sinkholes. I would love to share these strategies with you over the next few weeks.

A Little Video Snack

….to motivate, inspire and create the state of mind needed to combat procrastination.

Waiting to “feel” inspired or motivated?

you will be waiting a very long time….

We rarely “feel like” doing anything that is hard. There are many reasons for procrastinating, such as self-doubt, fear of failure, lack of knowledge, no idea where to start or simply not feeling like it; whatever the reason, procrastination can also take a toll on your mental health and well-being.

Yup, you know it, I am getting all PsychNerdy on y’all again! In one 2007 study, Florida State University psychologists Dianne M. Tice, PhD, and Roy F. Baumeister, PhD, examined procrastination among students in a health psychology class. They found that early in the semester, procrastinators reported lower stress and less illness than non-procrastinators, but that late in the term, procrastinators reported higher stress and more illness (Psychological Science, Vol. 8, No. 6).

Since procrastination is making you feel crappy, lets start with making you feel better. If we feel better, we can feel more motivated. If we are motivated, we can have the energy to tackle our bad habit of procrastinating. Exercise is the place to start!
