Podcast Episode: Overcoming Procrastination

October 15, 2018

Everyone puts things off until the last minute sometimes, but procrastinators chronically avoid difficult tasks and deliberately look for distractions.

Procrastination in large part reflects our perennial struggle with self-control as well as our inability to accurately predict how we'll feel tomorrow, or the next day. "I don't feel like it" takes precedence over goals; however, it then begets a downward spiral of negative emotions that deter future effort. Perfectionists are often procrastinators; it is psychologically more acceptable to never tackle a task than to face the possibility of falling short on performance.

Jake digs deeper on the topic of procrastination. He shares tips on overcoming procrastination.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), whoa that is a mouthful! Have you heard of EMDR Therapy?

During an EMDR session, the therapist will ask the client to recall difficult thoughts and emotions. He or she will then instruct the client to continue thinking about these traumatic thoughts or past events while having the client to move their eyes from side-to-side.
