By on April 19, 2018

Procrastination is something each of us encounters in our life. It doesn’t matter if you’re old or you are young, procrastination can take your life away. It’s something that’s so subtle yet, can have a lasting impact on your life. You see, some people can procrastinate so much they forget to live their life or chase after their dreams. I don’t want you to be someone who looks up and your entire life has gone by. And I don’t think you want to be someone who lives with regrets.

Each day you wake, you will encounter procrastination. Do you tell yourself, just a few more minutes of sleep? If you’re like most people, you’re battling procrastination from the minute you wake up. It can be easy to give into the procrastinator’s mindset and go back to bed for five or ten minutes. What you’re doing is telling yourself that your work isn’t important enough. Over time, this habit of sleeping past your alarm clock can become habitual. Once it becomes habitual, it’s easy to procrastinate on everything else in your life.

You’ll want to sleep with your alarm clock across the room. As soon as it goes off, get up and turn it off. From there, drink a glass of cold water, go to the bathroom, and brush your teeth. You will find yourself slightly awake from this practice. From there, you will want to start your morning routine. Your morning routine will consist of meditation, journaling, yoga, and reading. Your total routine should be no longer than two hours. During the entire time of your routine, you will not want to use your phone. You want to be fully dedicated to your routine.

Once your routine is done, start your work for the day. You will want to create a power list with the five tasks you need to get done for the day. Before you even check your phone or email, complete the first task on your task list. This will set yourself up for the day. If you check your phone first thing in the morning, you will already start your day procrastinating. The goal to kick procrastination to the curb is starting your day off strong and completing your first task before the rest of the world is up!
