  • The more we procrastinate on something important, the worse we feel about ourselves. The worse we feel, the less motivation we have to get moving on our work. The less motivation we have, the more we procrastinate with mindless distractions. It’s a vicious cycle that traps you in self-recriminations and anxiety.

Optimizing your environment for a calmer mind
  1. Surround yourself with nature. Nature makes us feel good and improves our health. It helps as a buffer against the stress we deal with on a daily basis. If nature is inaccessible, looking at photos of nature helps, as well as listening to birds and rain.
  2. Create opportunities for awe. It gives us the feeling of ceding control of our inner voice. We are less self-focused.
  3. Declutter. When we see the order in our environment it gives us a comforting feeling because it makes life easier to navigate.
