Suffering from wicked 'procrastination withdrawal'. I've been telling myself for months that I was going to come into work and start into my tasks right away, but instead feel like I'm watching someone else as I come in to work and surf for 2 hours. Every single day. Well, with the help of the PA CI I was able to shorten that wasted time to about 45 minutes this morning. Since then I've felt extremely anxious, stomachache. unfocused, weepy. All, I'm assuming, from just avoiding my avoidance behavior. Crazy. In actuality my productivity hasn't really been improved, but I do realize that I made an important first step and am trying to be satisfied with that small success.
I guess just have to acknowledge my feelings that I will experience when I try to stop doing a habitual avoidance behavior, allow myself to feel them and move on anyway. I've never experienced drug or alcohol withdrawal, but have new found empathy for those that have overcome those addictions.
I'm determined to change the course of my life. I will continue the formation of a new morning work habit and see how long these bad feelings last. Any ideas - 1 month, 2 months, indefinitely?
