Today is Monday, meaning the beginning of another week. For some this is the day to go back to work, to school, start exercising, work on a new project, and so on. Most of us face a procrastination on day to day basis. We procrastinate to write our thesis paper, go to the gym, begin homework, etc. Procrastination is the voice in our minds that we listen to, and that voice is a barrier to success. To get things done, we need to stop listening to that voice. It doesn’t matter if you are a student, an athlete or a blogger, we all face the exact same problem.

All of us need to come to an understanding that we can’t be pumping adrenaline into our blood every day. It’s very dangerous for our bodies. If you are interesting in reading in depth about how stress affects, our body read “Why zebras don’t get ulcers” or ”Inner Game of Stress.” These books have changed my whole outlook on stress and how to handle it.
Now on to the steps on how to handle stress and calm yourself down. (more…)
