Step 2: Tackle the tedious stuff first.

When you finally scratch something off your to-do list, be sure to reward yourself. Indulging in a temptation you removed, such as Netflix, or treating yourself to a little online shopping is all you need. Just be sure to not give in until the job is completely finished!

It’s important to take short breaks about every 15-30 minutes when taking on a boring, time-consuming task. Procrastination is all mental, so trick your brain by breaking that one monumental task into several simpler ones that you can accomplish in between breaks.

No matter how small a task is, creating a list of all the things you need to accomplish throughout the course of your day will help you stay on track. Being able to cross off some of the simpler tasks you need to handle will keep you motivated.
