5. Keep off your phone.
You have to admit that you are probably addicted to your phone. Phone addiction is hugely linked with social media addiction and this can cause major problems with procrastination.
I know it’s difficult to do, but turn off your phone. Once you do it, you’ll see how much of a difference it will make to your productivity.
Without a phone, you won’t get distracted by friends texting you and phone calls throwing you off your train of thought.
More importantly, taking your phone away will keep you off social media. No more will you quickly check your Facebook, only to realise hours later that instead of working, you’ve been looking at memes all afternoon.
Simply turning your phone off can turn hours and even whole wasted days into an abundance of productivity and focus.
These tips should help keep you from procrastination, but at the end of the day, it’s up to you. If you need to get something done, only you can discipline yourself to do it. Stop falling prey to pointless distractions and just sit down and get on with the tasks at hand. And remember, the sooner you get it done, the sooner you can sit back and truly relax.
