Say goodbye to procrastination today

Do you often procrastinate? Well, everybody procrastinates at times. Procrastination is however found to be more common in students. If you are a student and you keep pushing your assignments to the next day, to be done and in the end, you are stress-induced and often had to pull an all-nighter to finish your work before the deadline, then you are a hardcore-procrastinator. Anyway, there’s nothing much to worry as there are certain ways by which you can get rid of this habit of procrastinating, and put your life together. All that you have to do is just implement the ways mentioned below in your life, and change your life for the better.
1) Create a schedule – make a schedule, and plan you work beforehand so that you don’t have to break your head just before the deadlines. Mark on the calendar or set reminders on your phone as to how many days you have to devote to one subject to be studied before an exam or assignments to be done before the deadline arrives. Plan your timeline according to your work schedule and sincerely adhere to it.
2) Set achievable goals- Do not try to do the entire assignment in one day, otherwise, it would look like a daunting task to ever get completed, and in the end, you would find yourself procrastinating on your couch. So, it’s better if you divide your work into small chunks and work accordingly. For example, completing one chapter of English, per day or doing some part of an assignment in a day would be fruitful. Try to set your goals for a day, and try to achieve it at any cost. Do not go to sleep before completing your task. Make it a rule!
3) Stay away from distractions – while working on your assignment or studying for your exam, try your best to stay away from any distraction that might pull you out from your already prioritised schedule. So, it would be better if you put your phone out of your sight and use it once you are done achieving your goal for the day.
4) Reward yourself- the human brain gets a boost to function at it’s best if it gets tricked of being rewarded for its work. So, reward yourself every damn time you achieve your set goal for the day. For instance after completing a chapter, reward yourself by watching one episode of your favourite series. Tell yourself about it, and your work would be done in no time, as you would be filled with motivation with the thought of getting the reward.
5) Time management – managing your time plays an important role in deciding if you would be able to complete the given task before the deadline. In order to get a good night’s sleep and complete your work on time, you have to be very careful in allocating your time to the different tasks in a day. So, prioritise your work, and devote time accordingly. For instance, if you have a lot to cover for a specific subject before the exam day, you need to devote more time to it, and less to the subject you have already studied earlier.
   Moreover, in order to complete your assignments, try to start doing from the one’s which you know would require more time than the rest. Start your work from the difficult part and then get to the easier ones. Once you complete the difficult assignments, you would get the motivation to complete the rest in no time. So, plan and use your time wisely.
   Next time, if you find yourself
procrastinating, apply the above-mentioned ways in your life, and you would see the difference for yourself!
