A laidback mood can be a sign of exhaustion. If you find yourself unable to concentrate on the tasks you have laid out for yourself, you may be tempted to put everything aside so that you can spend some time indulging in recreational pursuits. However, if your schedule is full and you feel an obligation to address your obligations, procrastination can make you feel even worse about the manner in which you are using your time today. You may be able to relax while still working through your agenda by prioritizing your roster of duties and focusing only on those tasks that are vital to your wellbeing.
Periods of procrastination are often indicative of an unfulfilled need to rest and relax in between duties. We tend to move from obligation to obligation without stopping to breathe because we have so much we have to do and a limited amount of time at our disposal. When we become overwhelmed by our overfull schedules, we tend to feel tired and unfocused, and the resultant inability to concentrate appears to be nothing more than irresponsibility. However, it is when we are most prone to laziness that we should examine our agendas because we may discover that we have undertaken far more than any one person should take on in a day. As we put realistic limitations on our schedules, we become better able to focus on whatever needs doing. You will be less likely to procrastinate today when the tasks you have assigned yourself are manageable.
