How Does Procrastination Affect Your Health And Well-being

Procrastinating can affect your health in two ways – one involves stress, the other involves behaviors that have a poor impact on health. Putting off important tasks can result in greater stress as you rush to meet (or miss) a deadline. Stress, in turn, is linked to various health issues. People who procrastinate are more likely to sleep poorly, have higher levels of anxiety and depression and lower immunity. Research even shows that people who have cardiovascular disease or hypertension tend to procrastinate more.
