Procrastination is a common problem that affects many of us. It is the act of delaying or postponing tasks or activities that we should be doing. It can be caused by a lack of motivation, fear of failure, or simply a lack of self-control. Whatever the cause, procrastination can have a negative impact on our lives, leading to stress, anxiety, and even depression.

The Problem with Self-Control

Self-control is often seen as the solution to procrastination. We are told to just “buckle down” and get the job done. But this approach can be difficult to sustain in the long term. It requires a lot of willpower and motivation, and it can be hard to stay focused and motivated when faced with a daunting task.

Breaking Free from Procrastination

Fortunately, there are other ways to break free from procrastination. Cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy (CBH) is a powerful tool that can help you to overcome procrastination and take control of your life. CBH is a form of psychotherapy that combines cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) with hypnosis. It helps to identify and change the underlying thought patterns and behaviours that lead to procrastination.

How CBH Can Help You Defeat Procrastination

CBH can help you to identify the root causes of your procrastination and develop strategies to overcome it. It can help you to develop a more positive attitude towards tasks and activities and to develop better self-discipline and focus. CBH can also help you to develop better coping strategies for dealing with stress and anxiety, which can be a major cause of procrastination.

Tips for Overcoming Procrastination

In addition to CBH, there are some simple steps you can take to help you overcome procrastination. Here are some tips:

• Break down tasks into smaller, more manageable chunks.
• Set realistic goals and deadlines.
• Reward yourself for completing tasks.
• Take regular breaks to recharge.
• Make a list of tasks and prioritize them.
• Ask for help when needed.
• Avoid distractions such as social media and TV.


Procrastination can be a difficult problem to overcome, but it is possible. With the help of CBH and some simple tips, you can break free from procrastination and take control of your life.
