Who among us, hasn't found ourselves anxiously snacking and falling down a Youtube rabbithole when we were late for a deadline or supposed to be doing uncomfortable errands?! Procrastination is a hallmark of human nature, and while it often leaves us twice as stressed and miserable, it always sounds a lot more fun than actually completing our to-do lists.
While it's a deeply common habit, it doesn't take a behavioral psychologist to pinpoint the ways procrastination is self-perpetuating, and makes life endlessly more stressful. Nonetheless, it's such an easy cycle to continue, and breaking out of a Youtube rabbithole to "get things done" only sounds appealing to deeply unrelatable people. But still, it's supposedly possible to lead a productive life void of hours of anxious fixation on NOT making progress.
