Give it Time
Like any other bad habit, it will take a while for procrastinating to become something you used to do instead of something you do by default. Experts say it takes 28 days to break a bad habit or create a new one. That's not to say you can't be less of a procrastinator in a week, but you can't expect to do a complete 180 in that time. Those sneakers might get pushed under the bed today in hope of better weather tomorrow ... but this time next month, you'll be on the move without a second thought.
