Can’t Stop Procrastin-eating?

Oh man, I’m with you. Let’s commiserate (commiser-eat?).

  1. I am afraid of this project
  2. And I’m meeting internal resistance.
  3. Plus perfectionist tendencies that amplify anxiety.
  4. Shaming myself or feeling guilty is like hitting myself. Yael, stop hitting yourself.
  5. It’s okay to procrastinate. And it’s okay to eat.
  6. This is a learning process. It’s a practice.
  7. How can I be kind to myself?
  8. Pause, breathe.
  9. Listen to some music. Do a little dance.
  10. And if you eat, enjoy it. It’s a wonderful thing to have something delicious.
