Procrastination

Time Management: 5 Ways To Combat The "I Have No Time" Excuse

We often put off important tasks by telling ourselves that we've got no time for them. But, simple things can improve our productivity. Keep a time log to track how long your tasks take and when you're the most productive. Make a to-do list every morning and prioritize tasks. Beat procrastination by avoiding distractions and dividing large tasks into smaller ones. Avoid multitasking as it lowers focus. Delegate tasks to free up your time.

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.
