Procrastination: something we all want to avoid, but that sometimes we just can’t escape. I honestly think it’s in our DNA to be a bit lazy from time to time, and that’s totally fine. What is not fine is not getting things done because you’re ‘naturally a procrastinator’. If you want to know how to avoid procrastination and be a more productive human being, here are 8 tips:
Break large tasks down into smaller steps: this way you can have a clear vision of what steps you have to take in order to complete a certain task .
Identify your top 3 priorities of the day and focus on them: anything that is not on that top 3 can be postponed.
Schedule in your habits and daily routine: you can have a clear vision of when to do what.
Create a checklist for reoccurring tasks: reduces friction and motivates you to work.
Eliminate distractions: my phone can be a huge distraction for me so what I do is keep it on the other side of the room on mute.Have a clean workspace: clear space clear mind.
Delegate a certain time for each task: I recommend setting a timer for 10 minutes. If after those 10 minutes you still don’t feel like doing that task, move on to another and come back later.
Allow yourself to have a break: this is vital to avoid burnout. Allowing yourself to unwind will actually help you be more intentional with your time and be more productive.
My name is Rita Valente and I'm a 23-year-old Portuguese woman with a passion for fashion, lifestyle, and content creation. I'm currently studying foreign languages, literature, and culture in university (more specifically Spanish and English). I've always had a passion for writing and reading, especially in English so it was only natural for me to enroll in this degree. I see this blog not only as a place where I can write about things I love but also a place where I can practice my second language.
