DEFINICIÓN
procrastinar
(del lat. procrastinare).
1. Vb. tr. Diferir, aplazar.


ARTÍCULOS
WHAT IS PROCRASTINATION?
Procrastination is putting off or avoiding doing something that must be done. It is natural to procrastinate occasionally. However, excessive procrastination can result in guilt feelings about not doing a task when it should be done. It can also cause anxiety since the task still needs to be done. Further, excessive procrastination can cause poor performance if the task is completed without sufficient time to do it well. In short, excessive procrastination can interfere with school and personal success.


WHY DO STUDENTS PROCRASTINATE?
There are many reasons why students procrastinate. Here are the most common reasons:

Perfectionism. A student's standard of performance may be so high for a task that it does not seem possible to meet that standard.

Fear of Failure. A student may lack confidence and fear that he/she will be unable to accomplish a task successfully.

Confusion. A student may be unsure about how to start a task or how it should be completed.

Task Difficulty. A student may lack the skills and abilities needed to accomplish a task.

Poor Motivation. A student may have little or no interest in completing a task because he/she finds the task boring or lacking in relevance.

Difficulty Concentrating. A student may have too many things around that distract him/her from doing a task.

Task Unpleasantness. A student may dislike doing what a task requires.

Lack of Priorities. A student may have little or no sense about which tasks are most important to do.


HOW DO I KNOW IF I PROCRASTINATE EXCESSIVELY?
You procrastinate excessively if you agree with five or more of the following statements:


  1. I often put off starting a task I find difficult.
  2. I often give up on a task as soon as I start to find it difficult.
  3. I often wonder why I should be doing a task.
  4. I often have difficulty getting started on a task.
  5. I often try to do so many tasks at once that I cannot do any of them.
  6. I often put off a task in which I have little or no interest.
  7. I often try to come up with reasons to do something other than a task I have to do.
  8. I often ignore a task when I am not certain about how to start it or complete it.
  9. I often start a task but stop before completing it.
  10. I often find myself thinking that if I ignore a task, it will go away.
  11. I often cannot decide which of a number of tasks I should complete first.
  12. I often find my mind wandering to things other that the task on which I am trying to work.


WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT EXCESSIVE PROCRASTINATION?
Here are some things you can do to control excessive procrastination.


  1. Motivate yourself to work on a task with thoughts such as "There is no time like the present," or "Nobody's perfect."
  2. Prioritize the tasks you have to do.
  3. Commit yourself to completing a task once started.
  4. Reward yourself whenever you complete a task.
  5. Work on tasks at the times you work best.
  6. Break large tasks into small manageable parts.
  7. Work on tasks as part of a study group.
  8. Get help from teachers and other students when you find a task difficult.
  9. Make a schedule of the tasks you have to do and stick to it.
  10. Eliminate distractions that interfere with working on tasks.
  11. Set reasonable standards that you can meet for a task.
  12. Take breaks when working on a task so that you do not wear down.
  13. Work on difficult and/or unpleasant tasks first.
  14. Work on a task you find easier after you complete a difficult task.
  15. Find a good place to work on tasks.


FINALLY
Above all, think positively and get going. Once you are into a task, you will probably find that it is more interesting than you thought it would be and not as difficult as you feared. You will feel increasingly relieved as you work toward its accomplishment and will come to look forward to the feeling of satisfaction you will experience when you have completed the task.

2. f. Dicho o hecho ofensivo e insultante.
3. f. Acción desusada y temeraria.

La frustración puede originar comentarios punzantes, sarcásticos o burlones en un afán de aparentar inteligencia y superioridad ante los demás.

REDUCE STUDENT STRESS AND EXCEL IN SCHOOL

Elizabeth Scott, M.S. / About.com Guide

As educational requirements get more stringent in all levels of education, students everywhere experience considerable school stress. Here are some student stress relief tips and tools that students can use to learn study skills, prepare for exams and minimize their school stress levels to make learning easier, including an explanation of the importance of student stress management, and resources to help you reduce the school stress you experience.

Here's How:
1.      Manage Time Wisely: It’s important to give yourself plenty of time to work on your studies if you want to do well, and you can save yourself a lot of stress if you plan ahead with good time management skills. Setting up a schedule for study, breaking up your studies into smaller chunks, and other time management skills are essential. Here are some more time management tips you may find helpful.

2.      Get Organized: Have a system of organization for note-taking, keeping track of assignments, and other important papers. Being organized can bring you the peace of mind that comes from knowing where everything is, remembering deadlines and test dates, and clearing your mind of some of the mental clutter that disorganization brings. Keep a calendar, a schedule, and a filing system for your school assignments, and you’ll find it prevents a significant amount of stress!

3.      Create a Good Study Environment: Creating a soothing environment can reduce stress and help you learn. Aromatherapy, for example, is a known stress reliever, and peppermint essential oil is said to wake up your brain, so I recommend burning it as you study. Playing classical music as you study can also soothe you and help you learn (unless you find it distracting). Here's more on finding a good study space.

4.      Know Your Learning Style: Did you know that we don’t all learn in the same way? It’s important to know whether you’re a visual, kinesthetic or auditory learner, as you can tailor your study practices around your particular learning style and make success easier to attain. Grace Fleming provides a quiz to help you assess your learning style so you can streamline your efforts.

5.      Practice Visualizations: Visualizations and imagery are proven stress management techniques. You can also reduce student stress and improve test performance by imagining yourself achieving your goals. Take a few minutes each day and visualize, in detail, what you'd like to happen, whether it’s giving a presentation without getting nervous, acing an exam, or something else that will support your success. Then work hard and make it happen!

6.      Develop Optimism: It’s been proven that optimists —those who more easily shrug off failures and multiply successes— are healthier, less stressed, and more successful. You can develop the traits of optimism and harness these benefits for yourself, and do better in your studies as a result.

7.      Get Enough Sleep: If you want your performance to be optimum you need to be well-rested. Research shows that those who are sleep-deprived have more trouble learning and remembering, and perform more poorly in many areas. Work your schedule so you get enough sleep, or take power naps.

8.      Use Stress Management Techniques: Chronic stress can actually impair your ability to learn and remember facts as well, stress management is one of the most important —and most overlooked— school necessities. A regular stress management practice can reduce your overall stress level and help you to be prepared for whatever comes. This self test will help you choose wisely.

9.      Learn Study Skills: Here are some more specific study skills and techniques that can help you improve your performance. The more prepared you are, the less stressed you’ll be!
