5 Forgotten Secrets to Beating Procrastination at Home


It's not easy to stay motivated and beat procrastination while being at home. Too many distractions and feeling that tasks can always be delayed until tomorrow or the next day can cause procrastination at home to set in.

The phone rings, you check your e-mail, watch a little TV and before you know it procrastination at home has stolen your day and what have you accomplished?

Then the guilt sets in and you promise yourself that tomorrow will be better, but will it?

It can be with a little creativity and organization.

1. Have a plan including some kind of schedule. Make a list of the things you want to get done and write them down. It can be even more helpful to divide the day into thirty minute segments.

Be realistic about the amount of time each task will take or you will be overwhelmed by 9:00 a.m. Feel satisfied as you cross each item off the list.

2. Take care of yourself. Leave time each day for some kind of physical activity. It's good for you and can help you maintain the energy you need.

Try to get outside, the fresh air and light are also good for you and can boost your immune system and allow you to remain healthy.

It's especially easy to procrastinate when you aren't feeling well. Eat nutritious meals and get enough sleep.

3. Focus on the task at hand. If you try to do too many things at once you may get discouraged and finish none of them.

It will seem impossible to complete anything unless you really pay attention to one thing at a time.

4. Take a break. When you make your schedule be sure to leave time for a cup of coffee or tea. Time to read a magazine or take a bath.

This will make your time at home more enjoyable and also give you little incentives to get things done.

5. Be creative. There is no rule that says you have to do certain tasks on certain days. Vary your schedule and include a few jobs you don't mind doing with a few that you find less enjoyable.

If you hate cleaning the litter box, the oven and the windows then don't schedule them all for the same day. Do some extra things one day and have a little free time later in the week to do something you enjoy.

By following these suggestions you will be able to get things done on time, feel good about what you have accomplished, stay healthy and enjoy being at home.

Imagine how good you will feel when you beat procrastination at home!

Celebrate each good day and promise yourself a little improvement on the days when you do procrastinate at home. It will happen but can be avoided more often if you think about the five steps above. In no time, you will find that you have beat procrastination at home.
