Procrastinating Affects Your Health
Research shows that people who procrastinate have higher levels of stress and a lower well-being. According to researchers at DePaul University in Chicago, they believe that procrastination and levels of self-esteem may be tied to one another. Their study found that those who had lower self-esteem, participated in self-defeating behavior, and exercised interpersonal dependency were much more likely to be procrastinators. Low self-esteem most often led participants in the study to put off completing tasks and to choose situations that were counterproductive to meeting their long-term goals. This study, among others, demonstrates that procrastination may be much more complicated and deeply rooted in our personalities than many of us realize.
So there you have it: buckle down and get it done. :-)
