Quotes to ponder:

"When procrastination is no longer manageable or funny, these procrastinations aren’t a laughing matter; instead you feel humiliated by how insignificant your fears seem and chastise yourself, 'I don’t know why I can’t do this, everybody can do this.'"

"If it’s mainly anxiety, then calming techniques such as mindfulness or meditation could be useful, hypnosis is a possibility, cognitive work (challenging those irrational thoughts), and regular exercise could also be helpful."
