Fight procrastination: breathe

A short tip for fighting procrastination: just breathe. Inhale and count “one.” Exhale and count “two.” Continue to ten. This gets to the fact that so much of procrastination is an effort to escape from anxiety or bad feelings surrounding a performance task. Stopping to breathe slowly, be present, and allow the body arousal and “fight or flight” response to subside can give you enough calmness to get moving on the task.
