quotes, pink, and procrastinate image

Ok guys, here's the thing, i'm gonna be honest: i am probably the queen of procrastination. Even now, i should be studying for an exam i actually have tomorrow, great!
You probably think <<hey, why are you telling us how to beat procrastination if you in first person didn't make it?>> and that's a good question, i'm asking myself the exact same thing.
The fact guys is that i perfectly know what i have to do to not procrastinate, it's just that i don't always do it; but i know those things kinda works because when i'm in the mood, i have no problem with them. If you get me...
This idea came up to me because i'm tired of procrastinate, we deeply know it is wrong, most of the time. But we do it anyway and any advise i found in every social, well, didn't work for me. And maybe i'm not the only one that don't find a way out of this vicious circle?!
So here i am writing what i sometimes do to make procrastination disappear even if just for few days. It's more than nothing.
ENJOY!

FISICALLY

1. Force Myself

funny series

As for all thing in the world, to start is the biggest problem.
You know in the morning, i usually eat breakfast in front of the TV watching series. BAD habit that i can not do without. So what have i done? I just forced myself to shut up that little evil voice telling me <<one more episode>> and i took the control and turned off the tv (really proud of it) and like a robot i started walk towards my room to study trying to avoid my rebellious part that keeps telling me not to do it. Damn it!

2. Find Your Will

ok, sorry, i had to do this LOL

Ok, know i sit in front of my book, depression starts to raise. But I AM STRONGER so i start to read and repeat and the first step is passed.
It's exactly like when you have any damn idea of what to write or how to start to write an essay. Than somehow you start and all comes along. Do you get that? hope so.

bet your face like this now...mine is

So, now, you went on repeating for like an hour and your brain says stop. And that's ok, because we all need to rest for a bit, but keep in mind that than you have to start again. Problem.
That brings me to point:

3. Motivation Time (have a mantra)

motivation school

Now that you started, you know deep inside that it is easier than you though it would be, you just need motivation.
Here's when you need WHI the most! Search "study motivation quotes" and just read and convince yourself that you need to start again.
Than if you need it, get back to point 1. Force yourself to start reading and start repeating.

MENTALLY

1. Be Strong

You have to be stronger than that little voices telling you to chill and not to study. Those voices are the same that probably provoke you anxiety. So they are evil, fight them!

2. Don't Think Twice

If you have to study, try to clear you mind and try to think about nothing. Don't think about the curiosity you have for the next episode or the next chapter or that maybe you have to finish a mission of a new game. Just walk, sit and read. The rest will come.

Remember that if the tips you find on social don't work for you, that doesn't mean that you have something wrong.
i mean, i read a lot of tips to beat procrastination and no one of them worked. For example: to write down a schedule: i do it, but i don't know how a transform this into a <<convince myself that i have time, so i organize thing always starting from an hypothetical "tomorrow">> or the tip <<reward yourself>>, i mean if i have to eat a snack i can do it now, not later that just make me anxious and not focused at all.
So i though about what would have worked for me. I'm the type of girl that if it's not white, than it's black. So i find effective to pass from an extreme to another.
TRY AND LET ME KNOW IF IT WORKED OR NOT AND WHY, OR IF YOU HAVE OTHER TIPS, JUST TELL ME.
HOPE IT WILL HELP SOMEONE OUT!
