Mr. Procastination Roshan

What is something you have been procrastinating on doing for a while?

I am very bad at following through on things that I have wanted to do, whether it is a personal project or even at work. For instance I had learned about the Keto Diet and the effects that it has had on a few people at work but I only just started it this month. And this is despite me really wanting to try it out. My biggest excuse was the fact that I drink a lot of coffee and I needed my coffee to be very sweet. Hello – almost a month now and I have not been adding sugar at all. So I guess I could have started this a long time ago.

So to get you an idea that was in 2018 that I first learned about it after seeing a colleague who I hadn’t seen in over 4 months. Then a higher up at the office also stated that he had been doing it and we noticed that he had lost some belly fat and he even recommended me to do it. Skip past to 2019 August and after I saw a doctor for a broken toe, I asked him what he thought about me going on the Keto diet. He said go for it after taking my blood test results. I still didn’t do it.

Fast forward to this January and I asked my doctor again and again he said to go for it. And yet I only started it this month. Well atleast I started it this month but I should have started it a long time ago. Now I want to try some other things and I will keep you posted.

Things You Do To Cope When You’re Upset

How do you cope when you’re upset?

I have a few things that I do. One, I lock myself in my room at home and avoid the outside world. I refuse to take phone calls and I don’t want to meet anyone either. I would like to surround myself with things that I like to do and love to have around me. I’d play my favourite music and try to watch some comedy skit or stand up comedy clip on Youtube.

That will usually put me in good mood and reduce some of the frowns. If there is a movie that I can enjoy and watch I would put that on. I would order my favourite food and enjoy that with a drink. Speaking of drinks, my favourite booze will go a long way to changing my upset nature. As long as I don’t drink too much!

Ofcourse if I still had my dog she would put me in a good mood. Dogs are magic that way. When you come back home upset, seeing the dog so happy to see you, wagging her tail and wanting pets and to cuddle with you. That would change anyone’s mood to a happy one. Also if you have a loving wife who wants to ease your troubles, that would be great. Maybe you can talk about it over a glass of wine and then enjoy dinner.
