How many of you lovely ladies are procrastinators? Don’t be ashamed, we all have our own separate ways that we procrastinate, whether it is waiting until the last minute to write a 10 page paper on the Great Wall of China, or saying the infamous “I’ll get to it later” when referring to cleaning the unrecognizable pile of who knows what in your room. That is all well and good, but did you know that procrastination can actually affect your health? Crazy, right? Let me explain. 

Procrastination is a huge stress factor. It is a behavior that leads to stress because you keep putting off things that really need to be done, and when it is crunch time you have so much to do that you Hands and sport watchcannot handle it all. If you keep putting things off, the stress of the event will just keep building up and building up. If you get it done and out of the way, then the stress is eliminated! When it comes to a big school project or paper, work on it a little bit at a time instead of waiting until the last minute. If you work on things little by little, then it is a lot easier to get done, and if you wait until the last minute, you are probably not going to do your best work because you are rushed. By procrastinating, you can also be missing out on great opportunities. If there is a scholarship or job that you need to apply for, do NOT put it off! If you put it off, someone else could get it. How disappointing would THAT be? Procrastination also threatens happiness. The more stressed you are, the less happy you are because the stress weighs you down. Stop procrastinating and see what a difference it can make in your life!

 

I know you can do it!

XOXO, Chels

Hi Insiders,

            Unfortunately, school is coming up soon.  I am definitely starting to feel the back to school blues.  Between homework, sports, and clubs, it’s hard to find enough time for yourself during the day.  My stress level can get to an all-time high!  I’m going to give you a few tips to beat the back to school stress and enjoy your time more often.Chelsea Crockett- back to school

  1. It’s good to get involved, but not too involved.  As a student, everyone wants to be involved in everything.  Clubs and sports are so competitive these days that everyone wants to be the captain or president.  Many students join too many clubs or sports and seem to get over-whelmed between that and school work.  Try to pick and choose between what you join.  Give yourself time for homework and yourself.
  2. Don’t wait till the last minute to do homework or projects.  Just because you have a week for an essay doesn’t mean to wait until the night before.  That’s just calling for stress!  Do a few paragraphs a night or work 30 minutes a night on a project until the due date.  This way you won’t feel overwhelmed all at once!
  3. Stay organized!  As nerdy as it may sound, I love my planner!  If you use it correctly, you won’t forget about a project or event you have to do.  I promise it helps!

It’s cool to care about school and yourself.  Don’t let things get to you and cause you stress.  Be smart and enjoy your school year!
