Anti-Procrastination Day

Do you ever procrastinate? How many things are there on your to-do list that you KNOW you need to do or you just know it would really benefit you to do that one something, but you just think it will take too long? Or it's something you don't like doing.

Well, today's the day! Usually Wednesday is my Anti-procrastination Day. But I procrastinated doing my Anti-procrastination Day. How pathetic is that! : (

How to stop procrastinationStop Procrastinating!

So I'm picking two things today to make up for it. I challenge you to pick at least one thing from your to-do list or something from the back of your mind that you know you would feel soooo much better by doing it.

Why is this important? It's because those small little nagging thoughts at the back of your mind that can add to your stress every day. The more of those thoughts you can clear out, the lighter your stress load will be.

Less Stress = Lower Blood Pressure

The lighter your stress load is, the easier it will be to lower your blood pressure. It's kind of like that song, "the knee bone's connected to the… thigh bone, the thigh bone's connected to the…hip bone, etc." Hopefully I didn't kill the words to that song!

It doesn't even have to be something huge! For example, I've got 22 things left over from what I didn't do this week. I was busy tweaking my e-book, and just put everything else off. So I'm going to take from that list, and get an oil change for my car and start cleaning out my file cabinet. (It's getting so full it's hard to put more in the second drawer.) So the shredder will be put to good use today.

If you've been good about getting your daily list done, look around the house and make notes of things that could be improved upon.

Or, who haven't you called in a while that it would be good to hear their voice?

 Or something fun, like have you made your vacation plans for the summer yet? Or the dreaded…have you done your taxes yet…..as I slink away. 
P.S. By the way – I bet it doesn't take you that long to do whatever it is you are going to do. Set the timer – you'll probably be surprised!
PPS. Why not come back and let us know what you did on YOUR Anti-Procrastination day?

P.S.  One of the BEST foods for controlling high blood pressure is BEETS. You may or may not like beets tho, and they sure can be a pain to fix, right? I’ve found the easiest way to eat beets is this way.
