HELP please? Procrastination problems
Before I begin, I would like to thank Pro, for creating this website, and all of you, for creating such a wonderful, loving, supportive community. I have started using the check-ins and the chatboxes, and they have helped. However, I have some specific problems with procrastination that I hope I could get help with.
1. How do you get back to work after taking a break?
Sometimes, after working for a few hours, I tell myself that I deserve a break. The problem is, after my 10 minute break, I'm no longer motivated to get back to work. I end up stretching my breaks to 30 minutes, and then to a few hours. A few hours later, I suddenly realize how much time I have wasted, but I feel so demotivated that I STILL cannot get back to work... Do you have any tips/strategies for dealing with this problem?
2. How do you decrease your stress levels?
Occasionally, I feel so stressed, even for small problems. The stress is so bad that I often get stomach aches or head aches. Then, I stress even more about my stomach and head aches.... My productivity drops, because I no longer want to think about my problems, and I try to "escape" by watching TV or surfing the web. At the end of the day, I feel so demotivated...Do you have any tips/strategies for dealing with this problem?
Thank you so much for reading this! If you can give me any advice I will be very, very, grateful!
