Procrastination seems to be a metal state. The only way to cure yourself is to to mentally prepare yourself and tell yourself that you will not put things off. By sitting yourself down and telling yourself to stop and do something at that moment you will immediately begin to stop procrastination. As humans we always want rewards so also mentally state to yourself the great advantages of setting this up for your self. For example, more sleep, more free time (real free time), less stress, and lots more.

Don't get stuck the night before writing a 10 page essay when you have a week to finish it. Write down everything you need to do and then plan when you will do it. Giving yourself time in between your deadline and the moment when you begin working will allow you to have enough time to not stress. Also planing gives you the same feeling that you have while procrastinating, the feeling that you still have time, but unlike procrastination you actually have time.

Concentration

Concentration plays another key part in ending procrastination. No TV, random dance breaks, etc. As soon as you get home you must concentrate and deal with whatever is needed to be done whether is to take off your make up or to write that paper that is due in two weeks.
