  • Has a task ever felt too challenging, too boring - or both - so that you just couldn't get yourself to do it until the very last minute?
  • Have you ever felt helpless while watching a deadline coming closer and closer?

This is what procrastination looks like, and we've probably all done it one time or another. Procrastination is tricky, because it makes us feel better for a moment without changing the reason for our initial discomfort.
In this webinar, our speaker will talk to us about why procrastination is so hard to get out of sometimes. We will learn what a "procrastination loop" is and learn about specific tools and strategies to break out of them.

Our speaker Desiree Dickerson, PhD, has earned degrees in neuroscience and clinical psychology. She specializes in academic's and grad students' mental health as a professional counselor, where she advocates a better work-life balance in academia.
