Got a deadline? Should be revising for exams? Me too
Me 'revising'.

Well. Here we are. I'm writing this and you are reading it. So, I am going to do the right thing. Go. Just leave. Do your work. No?

Okay. That's cool. Well then, let's procrastinate together. Here is
my list of things to do whilst procrastinating.

1.Make a new Spotify playlist.

Arrange your tunes to your mood. Have a bop to Beyoncé instead of working. At least it will be a good way to keep fit.

2. Start a new Netflix season.

Feeling lazy? Kick back with some ice- cream and let the next episode button do its job. If you haven't already, check out the Netflix original series Love. Season two has just been released and is well worth a watch. Enjoy!

3. Take a shower/bath.

Not only is this an effective way to stay clean, it also allows maximum relaxation to procrastinate further. Turn the heat right up, and get that Spotify playlist going. At least you can pretend to be someone famous while shampooing. This is also free! And if like me you are a broke student, this is a perfect answer to all your indecisive needs.

4.Read a book.

I'm not joking. This may seem like working, but if you can't commit to solid work, picking up a good book is a fab way to pick up facts around the subject, or even for fun. Expand your mind, and escape from your commitments inside the covers.
This website will help you decide what to read.

5. Take a walk.

Whether cruising around the block or walking a marathon, walking is one of the best exercises you can do! Breathe that fresh air, and feel the rain (especially if you live in Manchester, or anywhere in the north for that matter). Watch the local pigeons fight over some spilled chips, and play dodge the puddle in your wellies. I bet you'll accidentally enjoy yourself.

And remember, we all gotta procrastinate sometimes. Don't beat yourself up. I bet even Beyoncé procrastinates.
