Procrastination and Academic Achievement in Breakfast Takers and Skippers: A Comparative Study
Breakfast is considered as a very important meal of the day as it affects the Body Mass Index and provides required glucose to the brain and body. Whereas, procrastination is the practice of carrying out less urgent tasks in preference to more urgent ones, or doing more pleasurable things in place of less pleasurable ones, and thus putting off impending tasks to a later time. This study evaluated the differences of breakfast takers and breakfast skippers in relation to their procrastination and academic achievement. The sample consists of 120 students of Lovely Professional University, Phagwara and Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana, Punjab. Participants were in the age range of 17-20 years, among them 60 were males and 60 were females. Random sampling was used to collect the data and the data was analyzed by keeping 5% level of significance. Results indicated that there is a significant difference between breakfast takers and breakfast skippers in relation to their procrastination level and academic achievement.
