Procrastination means to intentionally or unnecessarily postpone, delay, or avoid decisions, actions, or the completion of tasks. It is the avoidance of tasks that need to be done. Many teens are procrastinators and consistently put off tasks. There are many reasons why teens procrastinate. Some teens have trouble accurately estimating how much time something will take to complete a task and think that they’ll have more time to get it done than they actually do and put it off until they can’t anymore. Another reason why some teens procrastinate is because it’s difficult for them to manage the stress, anxiety, or even boredom they anticipate feeling. As a result, they put off starting tasks.


These Procrastination Activity Worksheets and Reading Passages explore the negative effects of procrastination as well as strategies that can be used to help avoid and/or overcome procrastination.
