Countering The Rise in Covid-19 Related Procrastination: An Intervention Study
The lockdown due to Covid-19 has propelled a lot of individuals to procrastinate more and deviate from their usual standards of well-being. Procrastination becomes unhealthy for the youth as it involves a harmful delay of tasks that turns into dysfunction. A total of 27 individuals in the 18-25 age group met the sampling criteria and are selected to undergo various interventions for three weeks. The underlying assumption is that the lockdown is related to an increase in procrastination due to numerous factors. The present study is a pre and post design to understand how the interventions made a difference. Lay’s General Procrastination Scale (1986) is used along with a brief qualitative interview to assess the results. The research hypothesis suggests that helpful interventions lead to a decrease in Procrastination. Results show 100% decrease in procrastination levels with significance beyond 0.001 level at the end of interventions, hence, the hypothesis is proved. The study confirms that simple interventions such as mindfulness, physical activity, meditation can be applied to effectively tackle procrastination and enhance well-being.
