Putting Off What You Need to Do, Your Emotions, and How to Get More Done
Procrastination is something that all of us are guilty of. And today, procrastination is easier than ever because there are more things to distract us than ever before, ranging from social media and apps to more life opportunities (today, it’s easy to get in the car and go just about anywhere and do anything you want, or hop online and plan your next big vacation). But procrastination shouldn’t just be blamed on the internet and opportunities; you need to take responsibility for procrastination based on your emotions.
Emotions and Procrastination – What’s the Connection?
The fact that you’re procrastinating so much may have a lot to do with your emotions and how you feel about what you’re supposed to be doing or the energy around you. Indeed, if you are feeling negative, you may find ways to distract yourself to escape the negative feelings. On the other hand, if your work (and what you’re supposed to be doing) energizes you and contributes to your overall wellbeing and energetics, you will be less likely to procrastinate, because your own energy won’t be pushing you away from what you need to do.
How to Get More Done
If you’re struggling to get stuff done because of procrastination, you need to reframe how you’re looking at whatever you want to do. If what needs to be done is viewed as a hassle, something negative, or something that detracts from your energy, you’ll keep putting it off. Even if something you need to do isn’t something you love, how can you reframe your emotions? For example, if you’re working on a project you don’t like, maybe say: “I don’t love working on this project, but I know that if I complete it I will enjoy the feeling of success, take pride in my work, and be happy about the paycheck!”
