Procrastination- The action of delaying or postponing something
This is the story of my life. The scariest part is that I became so comfortable not doing things that are good for me that I procrastinated doing things that were.

Things like morning reflections, prayer/meditation, exercise, drink more water, eat healthier, sleep routine etc. However, I constantly postponed the process for each one. I would say I was to busy in the mornings instead of waking up 10 minutes earlier. I would say God doesn’t hear me when I pray so I would give up instead keeping faith. I would make excuses for why I cannot make it to the gym because my life is to busy even though I could set aside times to make it work. I would see water all day long and simply not drink enough of it because it didn’t taste good or “it’s not that important” even though our bodies are made up of mostly water. I would also eat any type of food
