Can negative emotions predict procrastination?

A study that was published last month provides further evidence for this understanding of the role of negative feelings and procrastination. The College of New Jersey conducted a study to explore the relations between feelings and procrastination. Their focus was on collecting daily, repeated measures of feelings (both negative and positive) and their procrastination. The study showed that negative feelings did predict next day procrastination and positive feelings did not predict next day procrastination and procrastination didn’t predict next day negative feelings. In conclusion for our upcoming midterms try and stay away from negative feelings at all costs and get studying! Good luck students!
