Procrastination and emotions such as anxiety, guilt and depression

by Linda Graham
(Ottawa, Ontario Canada)

Our behaviors including procrastination are usually a result of our world or past experiences or in other words our family history. As mentioned in chapter 1 of my book, experiences from our childhood and as we grow to adulthood can impact how we think, feel and how we behave and hence our actions which can turn into habits.

We develop these habits or "strategies" to cope with situations in our life good or bad...

The more strategies we learn, the more neural connections in the brain. Experts tell us that the transmission of impulses between neurons and dendrites (dendrites are connections to other neurons in the brain) occurs through hundreds of channels utilizing precise chemicals or ?Information substances? such as dopamine, noradrenaline (norepinephrine), and acetylcholine. Experts have also learned that theses chemicals are also the basis of our emotional state. They infuse the entire body and not just the nervous system therefore altering every system in our body.

Procrastination can affect your health, bringing on emotions such as anxiety, guilt and depression...It's also been proven by the experts that procrastination is a learned behavior and can be unlearned...If you would like to read a chapter of my book with tips on how to stop procrastinating click on this link to obtain a free copy...I hope you enjoy it.
