More Procrastination

This time, a long New Yorker article reviewing The Thief of Time: Philosophical Essays on Procrastination.

This is the perplexing thing about procrastination: although it seems to involve avoiding unpleasant tasks, indulging in it generally doesn’t make people happy.

Free Workbooks

I post links to potentially helpful worksheets at Therapy Worksheets. Here’s a find from there that warranted double-posting:  A set of free workbooks from the Centre for Clinical Intervention, a CBT-based program in Western Australia.  Available there as of today:

  • Back from the Bluez – Coping with Depression
  • Keeping Your Balance – Coping with Bipolar Disorder
  • Shy No Longer – Coping with Social Anxiety
  • Panic Stations – Coping with Panic Attacks
  • What? Me Worry!?! – Mastering Anxiety
  • Improving Self-Esteem
  • Put Off Procrastinating!
  • Assert Yourself!
  • Perfectionism in Perspective
  • Overcoming Disordered Eating

Worth a look.
