Procrastinating in a Positive Way

Man scrolling social media while slumped in his office chair - procrastinating positive

Whether we’re putting off a hard assignment, delaying the workout that we often dread, or leaving the chores for “just another day”, we’ve all had some sort of personal experience with procrastination. According to Psychology Today, about 20 percent of the population are habitual procrastinators! When we think of procrastinating, the first thought is likely using our cell phones to scroll social media, text or call our friends, or surf the web instead of doing the task at hand. However, that’s not always the case, as any time we aren’t setting priorities, we tend to procrastinate. Here is a simple lesson on procrastinating in a positive way.

Procrastinating Can Be Positive

Have you ever thought that procrastinating could be considered a positive action? While the word “procrastinate” often has a negative connotation attached to it, we’ve recently discovered a positive way to do it! Below is a short clip sharing a few scenarios where you can procrastinate, and hopefully kick a bad habit while you’re at it.

Delaying Bad Habits

As we mentioned above, our good plans often fall apart while we delay them. So, why not use that to our advantage by procrasting about our bad ones? The longer we procrastinate on the action of a bad habit, the more likely we are to keep delaying until the habit no longer controls our mind and body. We think that is pretty awesome!

We hope that this short clip has provided you with a new way to beat a bad habit by turning procrastinating into a positive action. Please comment below after you try this hack and let us know how it worked for you!
