Sometimes procrastination can only be broken by practicing some mind shift. We are often just hung up on things, and the problem is our “Pattern of Life.” We need to be able to break free from that pattern and often taking a nap helps a lot in this.
Taking your mind off something, and doing something entirely different; like going for a walk, having a cup of tea or going for movies. These are examples of a good mood-changing activity, and after that, you might feel very refreshed and are able to do your work much better.
This type of trick can often be helpful when we are working regularly for a few months, and taking a vacation to a northern country for hiking, or visiting Thailand can give you a boost for another few months!
Let us go through a simple example of our own. A container can only take as much as the volume within; keep filling it and there will be a time when it will either overflow or the inflow will totally stop! This is called CRAMMING! Our brains are made up of two parts as per scientific analysis. One part does the thinking and the other stores memories and selects them as per scenarios. This process is simple but repeating the process again and again every day, makes the flow uninspiring. And, there will be a time when the uninspiring flow will become a burden. This is where the container has been Crammed at its full.
A break is actually a way of making a hole in this container and letting some outflow from the container. Since our brains and bodies are designed to adopt to minor breaks in such a way that even though for just a small time, these breaks makes memories worth a dozen days and we cherish them! For some people this break can go from days to weeks, and for other people the break can bring the same results in mere hours! Depends totally on the activity and the willingness plus satisfaction of the person in question.
Also, apart from the steps of breaking procrastination, sometimes it is the mental and emotional response to fatigue and a sign of getting worked up. So it’s okay to let it be and just give yourself some time to recharge.
Life is supposed to be hard, and it is filled with setbacks, and it just gets to you at times so just take a deep breath and give some room to relax and not feel cheated. This is where TRAVELLING is the best answer. It broadens our horizon and lets in some cool breeze. Not literally when we are travelling to a desert safari, but anyways! There is a reason why the famous chocolate brand kept its one-liner caption as “Have a Break, have a KitKat!” Because a GAP is necessary.
