Hopefully my witty title made you chuckle and reflect on what’s going on with procrastination in our lives.
The simple definition of procrastination is: the action of delaying or postponing something. In our world, we are faced with hundreds of choices every day. Is it no wonder we feel exhausted. Taking Care of You is a daily effort consisting of choices. Sleep, diet, exercise and hydration top the list but there are many components to wellness.

When we are in survival mode, optimal amounts of cortisol — commonly known as the stress hormone — can be life saving. But abnormally high or prolonged spikes in cortisol — like what happens when we are constantly stewing over a problem — can lead to serious health issues such as weight gain, digestive troubles and high blood pressure. Sounding familiar?
Stress hormones are one mechanism that we believe leads to weathering of the brain. Like a rock on the shoreline, after years and years it will eventually break down and disappear. Procrastination can in fact cost you your health. (Huffington Post Article)
Learning the art of time management is a great life skill. Procrastination may slip in on occasion; however, if you find it’s happening often, make some changes. Otherwise this wake up indicator could negatively impact your health. It’s important to realize, not making a choice is a decision too.
What are you procrastinating on? Exercise? Health issues? Work issues? Financial issues? Relationship issues?
IF NOT NOW…when?
TCOY = Take Care of You
