Culture Lifestyle Slider Tips


January 15, 2018

As it’s still the start of year (kinda), let’s chat about getting shi*t done.

Gym resolution?

Revamping your diet?

Being a happier human?

Staying on top of emails?

All of those are worthy goals.

But you know how it is: works gets in the way. Or drinks with a friend. Or getting in more sleep instead.


My favourite quote that I’d recent discover is:

But this post isn’t about how to say no and prioritise. (But if you want a post on that, let me know!)

This post is about procrastivity.

Okay, so it’s a word I made up but it’s seriously my secret to staying on top of the craziness.

Pronounced pro-crast-tivity, it’s a blend of the words procrastinate and productivity (very original, I know).

Think about all those moments you spend on Instagram while waiting for the train or on Facebook while waiting for coffee. They probably add up to a lot (and many miles scrolled).

People blame not doing stuff on not having enough time.  And to that, I say bullshit.

One day I thought, what if I just answer this email instead?

And boom, procrastivity was born.

You can even procrastinate doing, for example, a presentation by setting the next project’s meeting. Sure, you’re not technically working on what you’re meant to, but you’re still being productive!

Other quick little procrastivity-approved activities are:

+ calling your parents
+ organising a meeting
+ checking on a deadline
+ writing an email
+ saving an application link to fill out later
+ making a to-do or grocery list
+ find your workout for the gym later

…Basically, anything that can take between 30 seconds to five minutes that will spare you time in the future.

Getting a Whiff of Essential Oils

For the longest time, anything with the word oil in it was something bad and to be avoided at all costs. But then essential oils came along. If you’ve been anywhere near the internet recently (ha), chances are you’ve seen at least one use of essential oils…

I Challenge You To Kill This Air Plant

I got this text from my mom’s friend last weekend saying, “Do you have an air plant?” Tbh I had no clue what an air plant even was. …but my quick Google search made them seem pretty cool. Two days later, I got a…

True or False: Walking Is As Good As Running

Featuring photo outtakes! This is an age old question. Okay, maybe it’s a rather recent question actually. But either way, is walking as good as running? Some people say that a 40 minute walk is just good a 20 minute run. You’re getting your heart…
