I’m going to be 100% honest, sometimes I just don’t want to work. When I say work, I’m referring to reading articles, doing statistics, and working on projects at school. My other jobs are fun! I get to train people, help people change their lives, and improve their health.. it’s a blast! School… not so much.
Most of the time I try to get all my stuff done so I can relax. But on those days when I don’t feel as motivated to face my daily challenges head on; I procrastinate. I am not kidding! I will do anything to avoid the ONE thing that I should be doing. Please tell me I’m not alone here. I’ll cook, clean, write a letter, wash my car, I’ll do ANYTHING to avoid working. It’s a real problem.
So, I thought I would prepare you a list of my favorite things to do when I want to work the least:
Napping is the BEST way to avoid work. In my opinion, naps are necessary. Seriously, if you get the chance to nap, you should. You won’t even regret it.
Running helps me clear my head and dissipate some of my energy. It dissipates just enough so that I’m actually able to focus on work afterward. It’s sort of a “win, win”. I get to stay in shape and I get to focus better at my desk afterward.. plus I’m able to avoid working for about an hour!
3) Write up a few class workouts or personal training workouts
I always like to have a few extra workouts on hand throughout the week. Many times when I’m waiting for something or I’m bored I write workouts. Other times, I have plenty to do, but I still write workouts. haha I figure, if I’m going to procrastinate at school, I might as well get something done that’s useful!
I love blogging, but I don’t usually have time everyday to sit down and do it. The precious moments that I’m able to sneak away and write on the website are precious moments that I truly enjoy!
5) Clean every surface in my house or office
When worst comes to worst and I’ve already gone through every other form of procrastination, I result to cleaning. Luckily, cleaning is #5 on the list so I’m rarely desperate enough to sink that low. haha
Please tell me I’m not the only one! haha
