Procrastination and Laughter

[Posted March 14th, 2012] by KimRuchAlegant

Say what? What do procrastination and laughter have to do with each other? Well, I’m inviting you to notice the next time you are procrastinating, and laugh at yourself! That’s how. Of course, since I am a tapping and energy work person, I’ll give you some of that too. But when I am leading a laughter yoga session, sometimes I have people laugh at their aches and pains, do angry or frustration laughter, laugh at a bill that comes in the mail, or simply laugh at themselves. So, if we can laugh at those things, why not laugh at procrastination?

Laughter changes the energy of any situation, even if it is “fake” laughter from doing laughter exercises. Laughter yoga is “fake it ‘til you make it” or just keep faking it if you don’t. Your body can’t tell the difference, and you feel better afterwards due to all those endorphins and serotonin etc. So, next time you catch yourself procrastinating, take a moment (or ten) and laugh! (for more on laughter yoga, click here)

So why do people procrastinate? Oh so many reasons. Oh so many issues we could tap on. But I know when the weather is gorgeous outside like it is here in Philadelphia, sometimes you just don’t feel like working. You feel like enjoying the beautiful weather outside, even if our winter wasn’t very harsh this year. (Amen for that! Sorry Europe.)

If it’s the weather that’s making you not want to work, can you give yourself a few hours to get outside and enjoy the weather? Hey, as long as you’re not blowing any deadlines or forgetting to pick up the kids, is there any harm in taking a few hours to smell the daffodils? I think not. We are here on this planet to enjoy life. Make sure you are taking the time to do it. I don’t consider this type of procrastination a problem, unless it is happening every day.

However, there is procrastination that is sabotage, and that kind of procrastination is better nipped in the bud. Procrastination from sabotage is not starting a project (or finishing it) because of fear of failure, fear of success, fear of putting yourself out there, fear of getting out of your comfort zone…I could go on.

It’s best if you can identify WHY you are sabotaging. This is where your friendly neighborhood coach comes in. (Shameless self-promotion here) Call me if you know you are sabotaging but don’t know why, or can’t fix it yourself! Hey-professional athletes use coaches for their entire careers. Why shouldn’t you? Moving on…

Let’s do some general tapping on procrastination (due to sabotage, not nice weather). You will be better off personalizing it for you, or calling me so we can do it together. But this will get you started. (f you don’t know how to tap, click here)

Karate Chop: Even though I am procrastinating AGAIN, I deeply and completely accept myself. Even though I just can’t seem to get stated, I accept who I am and how I feel. Even though I can’t see how to fix this, I choose to make changes starting today.

Eyebrow: I just can’t get started (or I can’t get it finished)
Side of the Eye: I’m so frustrated with myself
Under the Eye: What is wrong with me?
Under Nose: I don’t want to get it done, apparently
Chin: But I really do want to
Collarbone: I keep sabotaging myself
Under Arm: What if I could stop doing this to myself?
Top of Head: I am ready to move on

Take a deep breath. Check in. How are you doing? Are you feeling better or worse now? Nothing at all? Not specific enough. Can you do some more specific tapping? If you are feeling some relief, move on to the next sequences. If you still need more work, you should tap more on YOUR particular issues before moving on.

Eyebrow: I am ready to stop procrastinating
Side of the Eye: I do want to finish that project
Under the Eye: I will feel so good when it is finished
Under Nose: I will be able to move on to bigger and better things when it is finished
Chin: I love finishing my projects
Collarbone: I can feel the celebration already
Under Arm: I am finished!
Top of Head: After I celebrate, I can think about my next great thing!

Take another deep breath. Are you ready to get on that task and complete it? Or, at least take the next step. What is the saying-the journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step, or something like that. Take the first step towards completion. It will make the next step that much easier. Use laughing and tapping liberally as needed. Take time to relax and dream/meditate/pretend about completing the task. Call if you need me.
