The Science of Procrastination – 1 By Akshay Kumar das

Most of the time we find people postponing things for no bigger reason. Do you know why exactly we do? Is that our circumstances/time makes us take decisions later.


Is that something which is also linked to our psychological kinds of stuff? , Yes it is something which is more scientific. 

What is procrastination? the action of delaying or postponing something.

But I have more words to say, The action of doing things in its proper way is something which makes us different from animals. we take decisions, we have capabilities to challenge our enigma before we perform a process. but when it comes to our To-Do list we may postpone them, due to reason, But when one postpone due to his/her laziness, still don’t punish anyway !! because of his/her brain which regulates it. So the brain is responsible for procrastination?

Try this whenever you get up from a sleep, a fresh moment will make our every task easier, we may not delay them. but a bad morning is always a danger for to do list. which will bring laziness, gloomy mind.

Our brain has a specific part called The prefrontal cortex / cerebral cortex which is responsible for the complex cognitive behavior, decision making, and moderating social behavior. which makes us delay due to lack of confidence, poor planning, fear, many reasons. because the brain works on its psychological distractions as true perspective.

Distractions, laziness of being non-active participation may lead to fooling our brain to convince untruth reality of doing things later.

From other’s thoughts:

Here’s a bit more scientific backup, so you can stop blaming yourself (or your parents, your birth sign, the weather) and start chalking up procrastination to biology. The limbic system, one of the oldest and most dominant portions of the brain, is on automatic. It tells you to, say, pull your hand away from a flame—and also to flee from unpleasant tasks. In other words, it directs you to opt for “immediate mood repair,” explains Timothy A. Pychyl, Ph.D., a psychology professor at Carleton University, in Ottawa, and the author of The Procrastinator’s Digest: A Concise Guide to Solving the Procrastination Puzzle
