5 WAYS TO STOP PROCRASTINATING


I know, we all procrastinate from time to time, but lately I've definitely become a professional procrastinator. So to get out this funk and start being more productive I've written 5 things that really help me pull myself together.

1. DOING IT NOW
Let's start off with the basics. One of the best advice I've read on how to stop procrastinating - is doing things that takes less than 2 minutes, right at that moment. For example : answering an email the moment your read it or washing your dishes after a finished meal rather than leaving them in your sink. These small changes in a day to day life really makes a difference in being more productive.

2. JUST START ALREADY 
We all know if you're stuck in a procrastinating mode, starting an already delayed project with many hours ahead seems like a very terrifying and stressful thought. My best advice for that is to - begin now, it could be working for 30 minutes or even 10 minutes, but just getting past that starting point will make you feel so much better about the project you've been avoiding.
3. MAKE A TO DO LIST 
This probably is my favorite thing to do before I start my work day. Creating a list with all the things you need to do that day, sure can be terrifying, but I love that feeling ticking of that job well done. 


4. ENVIRONMENT
Picking the perfect working environment can be tricky. I personally love working from home, but if the project is really important and done in a short period time I prefer to isolate myself from everyone. Either it's being in a different room (if you're living with someone), going to a library or being in a coffee shop with other fellow non procrastinators. 
5. BLOCKING OUT ALL DISTRACTIONS
Internet, nowadays is definitely the biggest distraction of all. Of course if you're using it work related go ahead, but be careful not getting sucked into funny videos about pets. I couldn't count the times if I wanted to - of how many hours I've spent on youtube watching random videos when I should've been working. So my best advice is - before you start working put that silence mode on your phone and turn it around facing the desk, and ignore funny videos you come across while working on internet.


If you're stuck in a procrastinating mode, I hope these 5 ways to be productive helped you, but still
I would love to know how all of you stay productive and don't give into procrastination, x!
