Get started

Every morning when the alarm goes off, I hesitate a minute. And, then I tell myself: “Get up and do your exercises!”

I do them. Every morning. Even when I would much prefer to be sleeping a bit longer.

Soon, I’m finished. I’ve learned that I need to do my exercises immediately—as soon as I wake up. Procrastinating is dangerous.

I’m following the advice of Dr. Timothy Pychyl, a professor at Carleton University in Ottawa, who is an expert on procrastination.

“You don’t have to be in the mood to do a certain task,” he says. “Just ignore how you feel and get started.”

Now I’m trying to follow that advice and do my spring cleaning. I am not enthusiastic about de-cluttering my closet—but I am just going to do it.

I found an article with Dr. Pychyl’s advice while I was cleaning. It was in the Saturday, May 21, 2016, issue of The Dallas Morning News.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues

    of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created

    myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all

    over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being ripped off?

    I’d certainly appreciate it.

    No matter if some one searches for his essential thing, so he/she needs

    to be available that in detail, so that thing is maintained over here.
