Procrastination always has… ‘Hostility to the task’.
You might feel this as dread, resentment, frustration; this affects our motivation, behaviour and mood.

Procrastination model:
  • Situation: Worrying about exams
  • Thoughts: I’m so worried. I’m dreading this. Is this enough?
  • Emotion: Hostility, fear, guilt, sadness, bored
  • Bodily response: Heart racing, sweating, tiredness

Behaviour: Procrastination, avoidance, perfectionism, generating the deadline ‘high’.
