I'm a huge procrastinator. I always have been. Although I've been out of school for quite a while, I remember procrastinating before every essay, test, thesis, quiz, and final exam. I did it in high school, I did it in college, and I'm about to go back to school, where I will probably do it again because I haven't outgrown the tendency at all. Some of us simply cannot do the things we need to do until we're under pressure. If it works for you, go for it! At the same time, though, you can still procrastinate more productively as you think about preparing for finals.
1. Stop Feeling so Guilty
It's natural to feel guilty about procrastinating because you know it's not great, exactly, but stop. The guiltier you feel, the harder it will be to start studying because you're creating this vicious, toxic cycle of guilt and procrastination.
