Mindfulness exercises can reduce procrastination, study finds – PsyPost

Mindfulness training can reduce intention to procrastinate on a task one would normally avoid, according to a recent study published in the International Journal of Applied Positive Psychology. Each participant completed measures of trait mindfulness (using Freiburg Mindfulness Inventory), attention (using the Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale-V1.1 Symptoms Checklist) and procrastination (using Lay’s General Procrastination Scale). They rated their agreement with statements like, ‘I will wait to start working towards this task’ and ‘I will start working towards this task today’.
