Study finds that increased mindfulness is associated with reduced levels of procrastination
  • The relationship between mindfulness and procrastination was analyzed in a study conducted with a group of Chinese students over six months.
  • Mindfulness promotes focus on activities, while procrastination tends to postpone tasks and give in to impulses.
  • The results suggest that when the level of procrastination of tasks is greater, mindfulness is less; this indicates that people who postpone tasks tend to be less conscious.
  • Likewise, it was observed that the increase in the level of mindfulness reveals lower levels of procrastination, which implies that more conscious people tend to postpone activities less.
  • Although the study has limitations, other previous findings tend to confirm the existence of a bidirectional link between mindfulness and procrastination.
