Free Procrastination Counselling Drive

Let the START not be the STOP!

FREE Procrastination Counselling Sessions.

What Is Procrastination?

Procrastination is the act of delaying or putting off tasks until the last minute, or past their deadline.

One may be well-organized or committed but when it comes to doing a particular task he/she might easily get distracted with trivial pursuits like watching a movie or series on Netflix or Amazon, spending time on their social media accounts or shopping online when ideally you should be finishing the task in hand.

You may be putting off your household chores, avoiding your school project, delaying doing your homework assignments, or ignoring the important project at work. Procrastination can be associated with a variety of negative effects, including worse academic performance, worse financial status, increased interpersonal relationship issues, reduced wellbeing, and worse mental and physical health.

In most cases, procrastination is not a sign of a serious problem. It’s a common tendency that most people give in to at some point or another.

There are various reasons why people often procrastinate. For example, some may procrastinate because they’re afraid of failing at the tasks that they need to complete. This fear of failure can promote procrastination in various ways, such as by causing people to avoid finishing a task, or by causing them to avoid getting started on a task in the first place.
