How To Stop Procrastination

1. Understand Why You Procrastinate

Sometimes procrastination is about avoiding negative emotions. Practice mindfulness and stress management techniques to deal with these feelings.

2. Set Clear Goals

Divide larger tasks into smaller, manageable steps. This makes them less intimidating and easier to start.

3. Create a Productive Environment

Identify and remove distractions from your work environment. This can include turning off notifications, finding a quiet workspace, and organizing your workspace.

4. Develop a Routine

Allocate specific time blocks for different tasks. Use tools like calendars or apps to schedule and stick to these time blocks.

5. Use Time Management Techniques

If a task takes two minutes or less, do it immediately. This helps clear small tasks quickly and reduces the clutter in your to-do list.
