Procrastination: The Wait That Broke the Wagon

#StressManagement #SelfCare #SelfNurturing #Wellness #Wellbeing #Procrastination

I can remember as a little girl hearing the phrase: "Wait broke the wagon." Reflecting on that, I could think of no more of a fitting title for today's blog article. Procrastination is something we all are familiar with in one way or the other. Either we are the one procrastinating or the one complaining about the procrastination of someone else. What is procrastination? Why do we do it? How do we overcome it?

According to, procrastination is the act or habit of procrastinating or putting off or delaying, especially something requiring immediate attention. Whether it is procrastinating with paying a bill, completing Christmas shopping, completing household chores, or completing the year end work project, or getting taxes filed, it isn't hard to catch the procrastination bug.

The simple answer many give to why we procrastinate is that the person is "just being lazy" or the person is "lacks motivation." A quick Facebook search yielded varying opinions on procrastination.
