Helpful procrastination

Procrastination is the action of delaying or postponing something.

From the outside, postponing your work can seem like a big waste of time. However, procrastination can help you do your work.

When you have been able to delay your work, your thoughts are empty and you are better able to work with challenging ideas. The work that follows is highly productive.

When you delay your work, you build up frustration as well as a craving for the task. The work that follows then comes easier to you.

Procrastination is a distraction and could be just what you need. 

Your life is not over if you procrastinate. Know why you procrastinate so that you may benefit from it.

The more enjoyable a task, the less we procrastinate on it. 

Boring tasks are more likely to lead to procrastination than difficult ones, that's why we keep postponing all the busywork (work that keeps us busy but has little value in itself.)

The topic of procrastination is highly debated.

Many arguments revolve around the fact that procrastinating is linked to depression, low-self esteem, or anxiety. This may be true, but the Zeigarnik Effect may prove something entirely different; it argues that an interruption during a task that requires focus can improve a person's ability to remember it afterwards.
