How to Deal with Procrastination

onlinecounsellingcollege:

1. Be honest with yourself and admit that you’re putting off stuff that really needs to be done.

2. Try and figure out why you’re procrastinating. Is it because you don’t like it, it creates anxiety, you don’t understand it, it feels overwhelming, you’re disorganised …?

3. Decide to break the habit of procrastination by deliberately rewarding yourself for doing something you’d rather not do.

4. Make a pact with a friend –where you deliberately and regularly encourage each other, and hold each other accountable.

5.  Sit down and think – in detail – about all the likely consequences of not doing what needs to be done. Be brutally honest, and try and picture what you’re life is going to look like 6 months, a year and five years from now ( if you continue to procrastinate).

6. Decide to break large tasks down into smaller, more achievable tasks, and then tackle these smaller tasks one at a time.

7. Recognise your progress, and affirm and praise yourself for making these changes – and doing things differently, even though it’s hard.

A little table to how to get rid of all that negative self-talk. We have to learn look at the good in situations too, instead of dwelling on things we can’t change- because you know what? We may not be able to change what is happening but we CAN change how we view it! 

HECK YEAH HECK YEAH HECK YEAH HECK YEAH

Cathedrals Of Ice

This past February, thanks to an unusually cold winter, the sea caves along the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, in northern Wisconsin, were accessible by foot for the first time in five years. Visitors were able to walk two miles over the thick ice of Lake Superior to see the ice formations that run up the coastline. Erin Brethauer, a photographer living in North Carolina, visited the sea caves.

allvirgo asked: You mentioned loud public shaming as the correct response to witnessing street harassment. What kinds of points do you think are important for us to make as we dress the culprit down the next time we see that kind of shit happening?

zoetica:

Thanks for asking!

The balance is found when everyone is safe, but the perpetrators know that harassment will have consequences and stop themselves in the future, in order to avoid such consequences. The key is not to aggravate, but to cause enough of an unpleasantness to leave an impression. Avoid displaying anger and name-calling, and stick to what we all know to be true: catcalling is never a compliment, no one likes to be harassed, harassment is a violation, literally all women ever have been harassed, street harassment scars women for life. The material practically writes itself. 

Trouble is, there is no surefire way of knowing who is the type of asshole to get aggravated and get violent, and this is why most people stay quiet. Be aware that by stepping in, you are choosing to get involved, and that could mean all sorts of bad news. When I see harassment, I choose to get involved. To me, staying silent is nothing less than perpetuating the problem and the worst thing I could do. On a personal note, If you’re an able-bodied dude reading this, I would really, really love it if you would think of intervening as your job as a human. 

There are lots of great resources on the topic I’ll link to after this, but this article, What Men Can Do to Stop Street Harassment, says it best with the short and catchy, Call them out, call them in. I paraphrase and append:

Call out with a short question or statement to give the victim reprieve and remove the perceived social approval of harassment.

Call in by asking questions and initiating dialogue. Sometimes this could mean asking others around how they feel about the perp’s actions, which kills several birds with one stone: more eyes on the situation, more voices to support how shitty harassment is.
