How to Avoid Procrastination

We've all had problems with procrastination. It's one of those things that sneaks up on you when you decide to take a five-minute break on your phone and you suddenly realize you've been sitting around for half an hour.

Trying to find away around procrastinating is hard, but it is doable. There are plenty of ways to keep yourself motivated to get your work done to your best ability.

Set realistic goals

Reach for the sky, of course, but don't expect yourself to accomplish that all in one day. It'll become overwhelming and much easier to scroll through Instagram instead of working toward your goal.

Reward yourself

As simple as it seems, working toward a treat for yourself is great motivation. Maybe you'll buy yourself that new shirt you've been eyeing if you study for at least an hour every day this week. Give yourself something to look forward to after all your hard work.

Give it five minutes

Take whatever it is you don't want to do, and give it a good five minutes. It's not a long time, and, once you start working, it's easier to keep on going as well.

Make it fun

Put on some tunes, create a study group with some friends, and do whatever will help you enjoy everything. Give yourself something to look forward to while you work toward your goals.

Break up projects

The threat of a looming due date can hang over your head and make it seem impossible to know where to start. Break up your larger work into smaller chunks to make it more manageable.

Find somewhere less distracting

If you get yourself somewhere you're meant to be productive, like a library or a coffee shop, it'll be easier to start working. There will be less distractions, too, which will make it easier to focus as well.
