Stress Buster – Do it Now!

Good morning Mintdom

Last night at Weight Watchers, the topic was stress.  I did not say it in the meeting, but I will tell you one of my biggest stresses is procrastination.  If I have a task to do, especially one that I do not really want to do, it seems like the easier thing to put it off.  That is such an illusion because in reality, the whole time I am putting something off, it is in the back of my mind, sucking the energy and focus right out of me. It causes me more stress then just doing the task, AND stress lays the perfect groundwork to overeating. I guess I am telling you this because tonight I have a newsletter committee meeting for my community, and I have not completed my assignment.  I have had plenty of time, but I just kept putting it off. The meeting is tonight and now I will have to complete it in a hurry or let everyone know that I have not completed it.  Either option stresses me out.

~George Claude Lorimer

“Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task.”  ~William James

“Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.” ~Pablo Picasso

I am writing these quotes (and yesterday’s quote*) on a 3×5 card and carrying it with me to remind myself to ‘do it now’ and I am doing it now.  LOL!

AffirMINTion: I have a ‘Do It Now’ attitude!

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to

Life is good!

  1. You put off a community news letter, but you write a blog EVERY day? What a strange girl you are. The blog would seem like a stresser. You are so correct about putting things off! Thanks for the kick … don’t you often wonder why you put something off? And when you actually get around to doing it you think, well that wasn’t so bad. I’m chosing to make it a great day. 🙂 Michelle
