Overwhelm leads to procrastination? WHY, brain?!

So why is it that feeling overwhelmed leads to procrastination? That’s like feeling hungry preventing me from eating. It must be one of the most strange and illogical impulses. Do you have too much to do? Better clean your desk.

I blocked distraction sites from my work browser (I use leechblock). That didn’t help, strangely. Other tricks:

Brain.fm – focus

Pomodoro – Set a timer for 25 min sprints + 5 min breaks

Amazon prime comes with music – try Liquid Mind or Mozart for Meditation

Coffee. Lots of coffee.
