The Weekly Habit Practices are mini-challenges intended to help you fine-tune different aspects of your health and wellness. Offered between Challenges, these practices address fitness, nutrition, stress reduction, productivity, and personal connection — because health is about far more than food and the gym (and we could all use a little practice).
This Week We’re Going to Stop Procrastinating
- Each day this week, you’ll do one thing that you’ve been “meaning to do” for a long time.
- It doesn’t matter how big or how small the task happens to be — you’ll get it done one step at a time, starting now.
- Pick a big task to tackle throughout the week or a different small task each day.
Why Is This Skill Important?
We all procrastinate, pushing our “to-do” lists into the future.
We do it because a task is unpleasant, because we’re not sure how to accomplish it, or simply because we’re delaying the inevitable.
Unfortunately, there’s a mental cost to that procrastination. While we get the sweet relief of escaping work in the near-term, a nagging feeling of incompleteness remains, creating unnecessary stress and anxiety over the long-term.
This week, we’ll relieve ourselves of that burden (while making a serious dent in our “to-do” lists). In the process, we’ll develop a habit of action, creating momentum and removing procrastination from our daily routine — and becoming more productive people.
Join us in the Stop Procrastinating Habit Practice, and be sure to post your results to the Official Whole Life Challenge Facebook Group, where we’ll be discussing our victories over the self-imposed delay all week long.
