How many of you cannot simply say no, even when you know that you have to? It is important to realize that take on more than you can actually handle, is probably not the best solution and sooner or later the negative aspects will reveal themelves.
This is something you should realize before you try to do anything else. If this is your case, then these hacks will not help you. However, if you think that procrastination is your problem, then you will find this advice helpful.

- Instead of listening to your favourite music, listen to the sounds of nature. A study has found that this is what can actually boost your energy and also our mood!
- Get rid off the distractions. Mainly, get rid off your phone.
