5 Ways To Kick Procrastination Habits


Do you ever feel like you're stuck in a rut? Like you want to accomplish more but can't seem to get started? You're not alone. A lot of us experience this problem, and it's called procrastination.

Procrastination is when we put off tasks we need to do for later, often because we find them inconvenient or challenging. While it's normal to procrastinate occasionally, chronic procrastination can be really damaging both mentally and physically.

Here are five tips that can help you stop procrastinating and get more done:

1. Break down big tasks into smaller ones.

Big tasks can seem overwhelming and make us want to put them off until later. Breaking them down into smaller, achievable goals can make them much easier to tackle and will give you small victories along the way.

2. Create a timeline for yourself.

If you have deadlines for each step of your task, then you’ll be more likely to stick to it and finish in time. Make sure these deadlines are reasonable and achievable.

3. Get rid of distractions.

To stop procrastinating, you need to stay focused on the task at hand. That means turning off your phone, closing unnecessary browser tabs, and anything else that might take away from your focus.

4. Reward yourself for a job well done.

Nothing will motivate you more than giving yourself a reward when you’ve finished something! This could be as simple as taking a break or treating yourself to something special if you finish ahead of schedule.

5. Stay positive!

Negative thoughts can cause us to give up before we even start, so try to stay positive and keep going no matter how hard it gets. With enough hard work and determination, you’ll be able to beat procrastination and get more done.


Procrastination can be hard to overcome, but it doesn’t have to control your life. With these five tips, you can kick procrastination to the curb and get more done! Good luck!

We hope you enjoyed this read.
