In that spirit, I often find myself posting regularly on facebook and then compulsively checking to see if anyone has replied. I do the same on TL on days where i'm in the house all day (about 80% of days).
This is undoubtedly strange behaviour, and probably an indicator of some self esteem problems/attention seeking. Its hard to stop this now, as i've been doing it for so long its a habit as well as a quirk.
Mindfulness meditation helps a bit, letting yourself know that you aren't controlled by your thoughts, but that you are in control of them, but it doesn't seem to last long and before I know it i'm doing it again.
Its a funny old brain.
Another thing that i'm guilty of is procrastination of the most simple/basic/quick tasks to the last possible point in time. I am currently living with my mum, and I wash up and do the housework every day. I don't mind doing this at all, she's letting me live here for free (temporarily) so its the least I could do. However, every single day, no matter what my intentions were, I leave it until she's just about to get home from work and then rush around trying to get it done.
There was a letter I was supposed to return to my psychologist. I had 28 days to return it. It would have taken me about 20 seconds to sort out. Instead I left it until it was too late. Surely that can't just be laziness. There wasn't even the tiniest amount of effort involved :/
I'll think of some more and post em up for your amusement soon.
