How to deal with Procrastination

Have you ever planned to complete important task/assignment/revise for exam — and then end up lying in bed contemplating or surfing the internet for more than 5 hours? Or perhaps you suddenly realize that the dog needs to be fed, emails need to be answered, your ceiling fan needs dusting — or maybe you should go ahead and have lunch, even though it’s only 11 a.m.? Our mental health counsellor from Skills for Change will facilitate this workshop to understand more about the procrastination cycle and see how to step-by-step create a healthier lifestyle.

Coping with anxiety thoughts and rumination

Do you find yourself thinking repeatedly about unpleasant experiences? If so, you are ruminating. With the COVID-19 pandemic, we experience increased amounts of rumination and anxiety. We will explore the rumination cycle to see how we can break through the impossible by recognizing the process, identify your thought patterns and challenge your automatic thoughts. Our mental health counsellor from Skills for Change will facilitate this workshop.
