Stop Procrastination and Eliminate Anxiety – Here’s How By Dr. Alicia H. Clark – FindAPsychologist.org
It doesn’t take long for procrastination to catch up with you, leaving you vulnerable to pangs of acute anxiety, and self-frustration. Sleep can become irregular, eating patterns can drift towards unhealthy, and exercise regimes suffer in lieu of rushing to get things done at the last minute. This isn’t an uncommon time for people to seek psychological help for their symptoms, and in particular, their anxiety.
Similarly, many people who seek therapy for anxiety often admit the significant role that procrastination plays in their life. The good news is that once procrastination gives way to action towards what needs to get done, anxiety is quelled immediately, and people start to feel satisfied with themselves and their lives. Almost everyone procrastinates at some point, others have made it their modus operandi, and most are in between. Here’s a look at what’s behind procrastination and how we can climb out of this toxic habit.
