how does they corporate with each other?
Before diving deep inside the corporation of these two things. Let first identify stress. Is stress real? What is stress? How does it happen?
So let’s answer the first question first. Stress does exist as far as you validate its existence. In short words “stress” is something like believing in God and Devil. Now you may ask how
So going to the 2nd question What “stress” is . It is simply an extraordinary negative perception of a certain event or a chain of events which is causing things like bad mood, fear especially social anxiety or even psychological and physical
The 3rd questing how does it happen is as I said above It does happen as a cause of negative experience might it be bullying , being overwhelmed and other things. It is important to tackle it by changeling the way of the perception.
So in what coalition does stress stand with procrastination you might ask. Well It can go both ways , stress is causing procrastination or procrastination is causing stress. For example you do have a big assignment to do at your studies. All of the sudden you feel overwhelmed as you can’t comprehend the time pressure. This pressure Is causing you stress and when you fell you can’t bare it anymore you simply procrastinate. It happen thousand times in my studies. You simple give up. Now the cause of that overwhelmed situation that you may perceive as “stress” is may naturally come from then you have waited doing this assignment till the last day. So you procrastinated till the last day to do it , now you are causing stress to yourself and because you are giving up you procrastinate again. Now you got into the” Vicious cycle” of you two “enemies” .As you can say “procrastination” and s”tress” walks “hand in hand”.
So how to get out of it and how to use procrastination in tackling stress? As I said procrastination can be your “mentor” and how you can use your procrastination to work for you is : you are doing a treaty with it. Now that sounds just crazy Isn’t it? Infant procrastination as well as stress does not exist in the physical world so how sign do a treaty? Here you have 2 methods to overcome this dilemma.
the first one is you do not need a treaty at all , but what you can do is to extract your “stress” and watching on it form an “objective” perspective. Now how you can do it by watching the event which is causing you stress to form a neutral perspective, that means without attaching any evaluation and emotions by writing down this picture what you see. The next part is harder because here you have to write done all the things you have learned from that experience
The second method “the treaty with your procrastination” you can do I you use the “reward and punishment” method. By simply saying to yourself and to your “triggers of procrastination” that you will procrastinate but just when you have done the assignment. Doing this your “sense of procrastination” will protect you from the stress because you have attached a “meaning” towards it. Btw. speaking of entrepreneurs it is good that an entrepreneur
With this further said a sense of “procrastination” is healthy in a certain level to have.
