likE HOW DO YOU STOP PROCRASTINATING

One of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever read about ADHD was like stop trying to be like everyone else and just do what works for you
What has struck me recently is that post that’s like “once you say you’ll do it in the morning, you already lost” or something like that… like so many resources are always giving us advice on how to be Normal but you know some of us function best under pressure some of us function better in the morning etc etc so maybe instead of shaming your own procrastination or shaming the way you have to draw a picture to understand a concept literally just stop and say you know what hey this is what works and I’m gonna embrace it

yibo’s starter guide to his very first attempt of cooking: presenting chef wang’s tofu-ramen

2

"I’m an Iowa boy who spent his high school years in south Minnesota wishing he was somewhere else. I started writing music as an escape from reality and it soon grew from a hobby into a wild monster — a passion that has taken over every corner of my life."

I’ll be the first to admit that I procrastinate a lot. If I could major in putting things off, I definitely would. And while I know it’s rarely a good idea, I choose to procrastinate over and over again. I’m sure a lot of you can relate. It’s so much easier to binge watch Netflix than it is to buckle down and see to responsibilities! I’ve read a lot of advice articles and even a few psych studies about how to stop procrastinating, but it’s pretty useless. I know I’m not going to stop any time soon, so instead, I like to focus on procrastinating better, so that when I actually do get to work, I’m more prepared than I was before.

You can too with this complete guide to procrastinating better from Living Between the Lines.

aim-for-the-horn asked:

Hey :) could I request jeanmarco (cause they're adorable and I don't think you've wrote about them yet) in some sort of scenario in which they discuss the other couplings in the 104? Of course, revision is more important so do that first and stop procrastinating :p

M8 I have done so much work today (I had a meeting and we got some stuff done like a lil bit) so I am totally allowed to slack off and write fic. Time to get my jeanmarco on, and you’d better love it or else. 

I hate karaoke night. 

Why? Because a) the bar gets too cramped to function and how the hell am I supposed to collect empty glasses when no fucker will move out of the way? And b) not one person, in the entire student body, it seems, can actually sing. By the time the equipment is up and the songs are ready to roll, half the patrons are too drunk to function and the other half just fucking suck. Period.

frenchnavy83 asked:

Awesome! 1) What college do you go to, and what do you study? What year are you in? If you're still in high school, what college do you want to go to? 2) how has studyblr changed your studying habits? 3) how did you find the studyblr community & what prompted you to start one? 4) what's the best studying tip you've found on here? 5) how much time do you spend updating & reading studyblrs a week? 6) what are your grades like? have they improved since you found studyblr?

Okay sooo

1) I’m still in high school, first year and my speciality is philosophy. I’d to study psychology and philosophy in college, O don’t know which one (I live in Switzerland, so I have a few -but good- choices)
2) This blog brings so much motivation and I literally STOPPED procrastinating. Still can’t believe it tho
3) I find it amazing and like the most healthy and sane community ever. I mean, it’s all about helping each other and giving motivation to others and inspiration etc. That the reason why I started one, I wanted to find motivation and inspiration to study AND give those to other ppl.
4) The planning thing, I used to work at random times you know, but now I’m just planning my tests, and all my study sessions which really help
5) I don’t post much but I spend about 8hours reading studyblrs I guess (it’s statistical but it really depends of the day and stuff)
6) Tbh my grades aren’t that good (as much as I may be not passing on second year) but they have been better since I started this blog! I only have to have better grades on mathematics now, all the rest is fine :)

I hope this helped! Xx

I deleted the tumblr mobile app. I really need to stop procrastinating and wasting so much time. Last time I did this I lasted for two hours. Now it’s been like 8 hours so far…let’s see how long I endure.

I will still be on a lot I guess, but not as much I hope. Final exams are coming up in two weeks time and I have to study. I also want to get on track with my workout routine again. There’s so much I wanna do this summer. But therefore I have to use my time wisely. 

I hope you understand - though I doubt you don’t :D
We all spend a little too much time on here.

 However, I wanna tell you guys how much I appreciate all the support you provide whenever I need it! I haven’t been to my therapist in months and I don’t think I would be as well if it wasn’t for this site and some people especially! 

Hearing your kind words, seeing how your day is going, reading about your successes and struggles - it’s what keeps me going. So continue to be awesome everyone, because I will still be checking up on you (almost) every day! <3

I’ll be the first to admit that I procrastinate a lot. If I could major in putting things off, I definitely would. And while I know it’s rarely a good idea, I choose to procrastinate over and over again. I’m sure a lot of you can relate. It’s so much easier to binge watch Netflix than it is to buckle down and see to responsibilities! I’ve read a lot of advice articles and even a few psych studies about how to stop procrastinating, but it’s pretty useless.

London, Los Angeles, Milan, Tel Aviv.

  • London: How do you take your tea? - With milk and sugar or just plain.
  • Los Angeles: What would you change about yourself? - I would like to be more productive and stop procrastinating so much. 
  • Milan: How do you think others describe you? As a bitch, honestly that’s how almost everyone knows about me
  • Tel Aviv: What is your favorite thing about your family? - It’s small, well in number it’s quite big, I have a lot of family, but I don’t really think they care about me, so the ones that do care are great, and that reduces the number of family members I consider (you know, my parents and my grandmas, and probably an aunt or 2)

I dont think you understand tho. It is a huge problem. Ill be dead tired and want to go to sleep and then ill just sit on my bed and not sleep or act like sleep is coming.
Like literally the procrastination is most of the reason why Ill randomly stay awake for like 48 hours straight every week or so. It is why I cannot do my homework until the night before/day of that it is due.
I dont know how to make myself stop procrastinating, tho.

The point at where you start...

The point at where you start a work or a group of works has always interested me. That point of no return. How and where do you start? Sometimes just starting is the breakthrough. All the thinking and procrastinating can act like water building up behind a dam ready for release. Or another way to look at it maybe is like catching something, weather it be an idea or moment. As I am no word smith I will end with a great quote that sums this up in a very elegant way. 

What was any art but a mold in which to imprison for a moment the shining elusive element which is life itself — life hurrying past us and running away, too strong to stop, too sweet to lose. ~ Willa Cather

Los Angeles and London

Los Angeles: What would you change about yourself?

hmmm..well I’m a heavy procrastinator so I would definitely try to do everything earlier to save myself the stress.

London: How do you take your tea?

Green Tea! It’s somewhat of an acquired taste but once you get used to it, ya love it <3

anonymous asked:

How to stop being super lazy person ?

I dont know, but I guess you have to set up some goals and try to accomplish them, then you can reward yourself :D (for example- you dont want to do your homework, but you say to yourself : ok guy if I do it before the dinner, then I can watch series or read a book).. And you have the will to do it :)
I think you have to persuade yourself to do it even if you dont want to :)
But Im also quite lazy :D more like I procrastinate :/
Hope this helps 😔😏
