      2. Division of Work

It is always annoying to perform a huge task at a single interval. Human minds are designed in such a way that their desire to perform a task decreases with the amount of task to be performed. 

When your task is too big to finish, you don’t feel like continuing with the mission. On the contrary, if you perform only a small job, you perform the same very quickly. So, always try dividing your work into small units and try achieving the best result for them independently. 

      3. Develop New and Best Habits

      4Reward and Applaud Yourself

Always remember that you are the greatest source of motivation for yourself. When you are rewarded with something, the energy for performing ultimately increases with excitement.

When you have no one to reward you or applaud your best performances, stand for yourself, and reward your hard work and success. Never be disappointed because of no one applause your work because you are always with yourself.

Also, reward yourself with things that please you the most. Make time for it because you have performed a task that is worth for. Rewarding yourself keeps you motivated to perform any type of task and does not let you feel bored from the same.

     5. Make a Daily Plan and Manage your Time

Time is the most precious thing that you can have in this world. When you have time with you, what are the things you won’t be able to achieve? You can achieve anything thing if you have time with you. 

Making a daily plan inculcates the habit of punctuality in you. You would start being very particular with the tasks that have to be performed. The daily plan should be designed in such a way that you won’t be bored or lazy to perform the tasks.

Following a daily plan not only saves time but only spares time for you to relax. When you are relaxed and fresh, the more productive works, you would be able to perform. Make yourself habituated with your daily plan, and you would start enjoying everything that you do.

    6. Give yourself enough sleep.

Lack of sleep makes you dull and lazy throughout the day. Your health starts deteriorating with the decrease in sleeping time. In short, lack of sleep makes it difficult to perform any task as you would not be able to focus and concentrate on the tasks you perform. 

The Rhyme “Early to bed early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise” must be followed. When your body gets adequate sleep, the blood starts circulating to your entire body and makes you energetic, which would help you to perform any task effectively.

A regular sleep schedule must be made and followed. Change in sleeping patterns can also have an impact on the work you are doing. Adequate sleep and rest would make your body warm and helps you to stop procrastinating.

    7. Brainstorming

Brainstorming is the process of boosting your creativity and productivity. Brainstorming helps you to generate and develop creative ideas with brilliant thoughts.

Instead of simply wasting your time on irrelevant things, brainstorm so that the productivity of your brain increases. The increase in the level of your creativity would boost you up to perform any tasks.

Meditate daily for at least 5-10 minutes. Meditation is a very effective way of enhancing and brainstorming new ideas. The excitement to work with the new ideas would never let you down or demotivated. Hence, brainstorming helps you to stop procrastinating. 

    8. Stay Simple - Don’t try to be Perfect

Simplicity is always considered as the best weapon for dealing with any sort of problems or situations in your life. Staying within your limits would help you to avoid thinking more about the things that are very far to be achieved. 

Perfection is not achieved unless you pass through the phase of simplicity. Satisfying yourself with the results, you get reduces stress and enhances productivity. It is good to work hard to be perfect, but to a certain limit. 

When you start thinking more about perfection, you will start losing interest from negligible things, which drives relatively low results. You would start to procrastinate for the thing that doesn’t render the perfect result.

    9. Take Normal Breaks in Between

It is very much certain that you won’t feel like doing anything if you are working continuously for a long time. According to a survey, it has been proven that working in intervals drives positive and effective results as compared to a long duration of work.

Taking breaks in between gives you the time to freshen yourself up and be prepared for the upcoming interval. It helps you to generate more creative ideas and, most importantly, avoids you from being fatigued. 

Always ensure that the breaks are normal and not very long. Long breaks divert your attention from the work you are currently performing. Long breaks would make you procrastinate more, so ensure that the breaks are normal.

We have talked about many things above, and they might also be relating to this bonus tip, but why I am mentioning this differently is to awaken you from the stage of procrastination. The above-mentioned tips are possible only if you take action.

If you are not willing to take action, it is certain that you would also not be following the tips that I have mentioned above. Think of your dreams and take action to follow them accordingly.

Don’t reward yourself with the crown of Lethargic, but reward yourself as the hustler who never steps back when it comes to taking actions.
