Procrastination: Karen

Karen Heath

I've had problems with procrastination and poor study skills for as long as I can remember. When something caused me to feel anxious, I would prolong addressing it and just put it off. I've tried to telling myself that this behavior was going to change and even bought self help books, but it just didn't stick. I would start to look at what needed to be done and then go off on tangents and get farther away from my the assignments. I would usually waste a couple of hours at a time and really missed the boat with what I needed to be doing.

My procrastination had become a real problem and oftentimes, I had to go to my professor and tell them that my work wasn't ready. I would have to get extensions on my assignments and that was embarrassing. I felt unprepared and had a lot of anxiety when I took tests because instead of studying the material that was going to be tested, I would go off on tangents and waste time. The situation felt out of control, it made me very nervous and something just felt wrong. I was aware that I was procrastinating, but felt like I couldn't do anything to stop it.

I was in Borders Bookstore and I saw an ad for A New Day Hypnosis. After talking to Laura, I trusted that this was the place for me. I started noticing results within a few days of my first session. I noticed that I felt a lot calmer and I was more motivated. I feel continually motivated to complete my assignments now and also have excitement about my work. I'm getting better sleep and have much better study habits. I've also noticed an increased sense of well being relating to my ability to study.

The relaxation gives me the results that I want. I feel more in control and have more energy to direct towards my goals. There's less time spent goofing around and I'm much more focused on the task at hand. I feel more confident now because I know that I can do it and I know how to do it. I can listen to my sessions if I start to feel nervous and I get reminded of my goals and feel relaxed so that I can get back on task.

The most important benefit for me has been the ability to focus again. I would definitely recommend A New Day Hypnosis to anyone who wants help with procrastination and study skills because it has helped me a lot. I'm confident that these habits are becoming ingrained and that I will have continued success and progress in my goals.
