I’m a very good procrastinator. I want to start a yoga and daily writing practice. I am not sure how to begin. I say I want to write a book or get healthy but then I tend to slack off. What should I do?
I used to be a procrastinator. Then, I realized that if I didn’t take action my whole life would pass me by. Start small. Start by creating a daily schedule and placing a yoga practice and writing practice at its forefront. You may want to wake each morning and make these two part of your new ritual. You can make a schedule very simply on your computer or you can buy a planner for yourself. Create daily affirmations on post-it notes and place them around your living space. These will motivate you to do your goals. This works no matter what your goal is. Remember as Yoda from Star Wars says “Do or do not. There is no try.”
