Though working, going to college and working on startups... I still have trouble staving off procrastination such as television shows, movies and online multiplayer gaming.
How do I reduce this procrastination, so I can better utilise time for the mentioned tasks?
Some things I have tried since starting college:
- Coffee, energy drinks and sugar-filled confectioneries
- Sleep experiments: 8-9 hours sleep, 6 hours sleep, sleeping at odd hours (tried wakeup 5AM then tried waking up 5PM, and bunch in-between)
- Game mechanics (from Khan Academy and Udacity... this seemed to work short term)
- Keeping to a consistent exercise routine
My most recent routine consists of 8.0 hours sleep with 10AM or 7AM wakeup, no confectionery and replaced coffee with Berocca (a multi-vitamin).
However I am still finding myself with an unproductive level of procrastination... advice?
