One of the most annoying problems procrastinators face is when they run out of ways to procrastinate. How are you supposed to justify not doing your work if you’ve got nothing else to do? That simply won’t fly. That’s why I’ve compiled a list of my favorite ways to procrastinate so you never have to run out of things to do when you should be doing other things. As an added bonus I gave some reasons why the below items are good for you to so that you don’t feel too bad about procrastinating.
This has to be the best one. There is nothing like napping when you should be doing a million other things. Naps are fun, refreshing, and anyone can take them! Naps are good to restart that amazing brain of yours before actually studying.
If you hate working out, this won’t appeal to you, I honestly don’t even consider it procrastinating sometimes though because it de-stresses me while doing something good for my body, so it really is a necessary act. Run for 30 minutes or dance for an hour; it doesn’t matter. You’ll sleep better too, which will help you in the long run when you finally have to finish that assignment that’s due tomorrow.
It’s time to purge the stuff you no longer need. Again, this is a very useful way to procrastinate. I guarantee you’ve got stuff lying around that you’ll never use again. You know what is the best part of this method, your small student room will look HUGE after a good de-clutter
Movie Marathon or series binge-watching
Pick out your favorite movies or series, make some snacks, and procrastinate the day away. This one never gets old because there are always new movies to watch. The best thing is binge-watching a franchise like Friends, Harry Potter, or Lord of the Rings.
You need Food, make something delicious
This is a great way to procrastinate because it is actually productive. Plus, you can make it a two-for-one procrastinating session if you look on Pinterest for recipes. If you’re procrastinating, it’s probably because you’re bored with what you’re supposed to be doing. And if you’re bored, you’re probably hungry. It just makes sense that you get in the kitchen and hone your cooking skills. It’s a legitimately useful ability to have!
This is hands-down the number one reason I procrastinate when on my computer or phone, I won’t say much about this one because we all know what our quilty pleasures are, Facebook, Tik Tok, BuzzFeed, Pinterest, or YouTube. But let’s be honest, even if this is a time-stealing procrastination method, it sure relaxes our brains.
Just an added reminder, we, procrastinators, share a special bond; we get each other. Nobody else understands why we put off assignments and tasks until the last second and voluntarily subject ourselves to working under pressure, but that’s okay. No one needs to get it but us.
