Procrastinators Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from chronic procrastination.

Please Share Your Frustration Tools of Management Experiences, Strength and Hope

It becme very clear from our morning meeting that frustration is one of the emotions that a recovering procrastinator will encounter (even after recovery) on a regular basis.  It is important that we learn to manage these emotions successfully.

Frustration is a formidable obstacle and can stop the procrastinator in their tracks as it's negativity can be equilavant to intense anger and more negative than dread.  It can be a wall.  But like anything else I believe we can manage it with spiritual tools.

There is one promise we use on the phone bridge that reminds us to pause and ask God for guidance then trust what is revealed to us, as the next right action.

I also know that deep breathing and stretching helps to relieve the energy.  Removing oneself from the task can also be helpful but there may be more insight within this group so please share what has worked for you.




Keeping in the moment helps

Someone said that depression is fear of the past and anxiety is fear of the future. That seems to make sense. The old saying "one day at a time", used by nearly all 12 step groups is good advice. Even when I try to stay in today, I often have the ulterior motive of trying to align today with the future, as though when playing chess. In my 12 step group, I've heard people talk about breaking days down into hours, minutes, and even seconds. Hope this helps. Thanks
