In this episode of the Psych Central Show, hosts Gabe Howard and Vincent M. Wales finally tackle a topic they’d been putting off: procrastination. Pretty much everyone puts off doing distasteful tasks, but procrastination can cause a multitude of problems for us, including harming our health. During this show, you’ll learn some surprising (and some not-so-surprising) facts about procrastination, including just how many people self-identify as procrastinators, and several of the most common excuses given for procrastinating. You’ll also learn what the major reasons behind procrastination really are and [spoiler alert] that you can, in fact, stop procrastinating.
