Santa Barbara, CA (PressExposure) July 31, 2008 -- Procrastination Nation, the new book by psychotherapist Gloria Arenson, a nationally recognized expert in the field of compulsive disorders, addresses the worldwide problem of procrastination through new scientific understandings. In this revolutionary book, Arenson shows that it is not just a bad habit, but also a way of avoiding anxiety and longstanding emotional issues.
In her new book, Arenson explains that Procrastination is also a very deceptive National dilemma, an epidemic of sorts, because it is so widely accepted in our culture. Arenson offers a proven six-step program to overcome procrastination, and in addition, she presents several revolutionary techniques for maintaining a life free from this self-defeating behavior. The author relates the real-life stories of people who have successfully overcome the inability to get things done in a timely manner as needed. Procrastination Nation answers these questions: â¢ What does the neurobiology of the brain have to do with procrastination? â¢ What five false beliefs drive this common self-defeating problem? â¢ How do desks, garages, filing cabinets and closets symbolize deeper issues? â¢ What does perfectionism have to do with procrastination? â¢ How are some people set up to procrastinate at birth? â¢ How does a procrastinator get to the root of the problem once and for all? â¢ Why do energy psychology techniques eliminate this problem? â¢ What can family and friends of procrastinators do to help?
Procrastination Nation offers a new and practical approach to this timeless and universal topic that speaks to people of all ages, ethnicities and socio-economic backgrounds. The book includes a complete arsenal of tools, tips, anecdotes and advice for chronic procrastinators and those who are affected by this compulsive problem.
