Overwhelmed with adulthood? Don't worry, you're not alone on that one.

Procrastination can happen to the best of us, and we most commonly indulge in it when we have a whole lot to do. So because of this, we can't help but want to slack off, overwhelmed by... well, life.

Instead of doing the things we should do, we just sit for hours scrolling through our Instagram feeds or watching funny cat videos.

So to help you start defeating your procrastination, TPSY has blessed us with three easy tricks to getting shit done in the video above.

That's right: procrastination, be gone.

1. Get the worst things you have to do out of the way

Dreading cleaning the bathroom or doing your taxes? Just get it done. Yes, we know it's hard, but if you have a long list of things to do, make sure these tasks are your top priority. This way, when you get these looming must-dos out of the way, you'll feel a sense of accomplishment, giving you a burst of energy to crush the rest of your day.


2. Make lists

First things first: find yourself a great notebook and pen. This will make it easier to write down everything you have to do. That's right: make a list of things to do. A great tip TPSY gives is organizing your tasks by priority. For example, create lists labeled: "Must get done," "Should get done," and "Want to get done." Breaking up your to-do list into small workable pieces can help you make progress.


3. You're a slacker? Schedule time for that

Look, we're all guilty of mindlessly browsing the Internet and binge watching a Netflix series, making ourselves incapable of doing anything productive. But instead of feeling guilty about not getting things done, designate windows of time for slacking off. Spend your other hours focusing on the task at hand. If you're having trouble focusing on getting things done, know that a break is waiting for you when you've accomplished your goal.
