Advice Appreciated - Setting Limits
Today I will end up failing a biology course for the second time and failing a class this year is not anything new to me.::sad:: I'm at the point where I am absolutely tired of unintentionally repeating the same old habits.
Various professors and counselors had advised me to take some time off of college to find my source of real motivation.
But... I don't think motivation is the issue. I think my fear of being overwhelmed is.
As a chronic procrastinator, I have an addiction to coping with stress by browsing the internet and a couple of particular forums. And I direly want to overcome this habit.
Should I limit my internet/forum usage to only the weeknights and weekends?
I have read Neil Fiore's The Now Habit and he stresses that one must take breaks to keep the mind energized and healthy.
Yet the only problem is that when I do take a break, I have difficulty prying my focus off the forums and onto my work.
So what do you suggest I do? Would setting internet limits benefit my situation or make it worse (re: feel deprived and procrastinate even further to compensate for the 'lost time')?
