Procrastinating can lead to daydreaming

 The frustration with having to deal with many responsibilities can lead some people into the habit of not getting things done.

It’s one thing to feel overwhelmed, but when it comes to completing a task that has a deadline that shouldn’t cause people to hold things off to the last minute.

Psychologist William Knaus pointed out in a recent article for the University of Buffalo that 90 percent of college students are procrastinators, and 25 percent of those students are constant with the bad habit.

In college, there’s an acceptable reason for why many people procrastinate. There is a tendency for students to procrastinate when simple work is assigned by a professor because it’s perceived as boring.

When these thoughts occur, you’ll consider brushing off assignments without having to stress about the duty of homework.

You may think to yourself, “Oh, I still have till tomorrow when my assignment is due” or “My project isn’t that difficult, plus I have so many other things to do, I can always finish my project later.”

Your procrastination may not mean your’re lazy. It can be from the difficulty of concentration, anxiety, personal problems, and the unexpected happenings of life.

Some people also have the trouble of organizing their time and correctly managing it in order to have the ability to tend to priorities.

Procrastination among college students is overbearing with homework, school, working, and the expenses of accommodating living situations.

Don’t hold yourself back from achieving long- and short-term goals that you know you must be committed to.

Even if this means taking the time to step back and relax; to take a deep breathe and find yourself in a more suitable environment where you know that you can concentrate on studying for a couple of hours can help overcome procrastination.

Don’t feel guilty about taking short breaks when you need to, but try not to distract yourself with TV or social networking.

Procrastination isn’t something you can overcome in one day, but if you put the effort into trying to establish more self-control, then keep on reading informative websites and read books that promote a healthy lifestyle of keeping yourself on track.
