- Try projecting yourself into the future. Imagine the good feelings you will have if you stop procrastinating and finish a project.
- Just get started. Tell yourself you don’t have to do the whole project. Just do the first one or two steps on it.
- Stop beating yourself up. Replace the negative thoughts with something more positive.
Truth to be told: “A real mood boost comes from doing what we intend to do—the things that are important to us.”
