What is procrastination?


Procrastination is the practice of carrying out less urgent tasks in preference to more urgent ones, or doing more pleasant tasks in place of less pleasant ones, and thus putting off impending things to a later time.

Everyone procrastinates at some stage, but 20 percent of people chronically avoid difficult tasks and deliberately look for distractions.

Procrastination may result in the following:- stress, anxiety, guilt, loss of productivity, health problems, and social disapproval for not meeting responsibilities. These feelings combined may promote further procrastination. While it is regarded as normal for people to procrastinate to some degree, it becomes a problem when it impedes normal functioning. Chronic procrastination may be a sign of an underlying issue or unresolved fear or trauma.
