Well, if you love to pile your workloads and shake it all night, your efficiency is in danger or you might choke to death in contemplating how you wasted your time.

What are ways to beat procrastination?
Don’t Lose Your Track, take a Short-Break and Relax (But not so relax)
In the middle of doing your task, do something different when you’re approaching procrastination mode. Doing something relentlessly will lose your interest in your task. Stretch and take a roam whenever needed. This will help you to distract a little bit and keep track of what you’re doing. Stay focused and remove the excess baggage that heavies your mind. On this note, picture and visualize the rewards that you will reap after accomplishing the task.
Staying focus may be challenging but always bear in mind the reasons for accomplishing the task. Postponing it won’t make any changes it will just prolong your agony and headache. Breakdown your goals and work on it slowly. Always keep your mind relaxed and don’t think of unnecessary things that may lose your track. If possible, stay away from distractions.
Always believe in yourself that you can do it!
Self-limiting really gets in the way when you want to accomplish something. It’s really hard to avoid the negative thoughts that devour your mind and sometimes you cannot control it. How to stop this? Face your fears. Try to control your anxiety and don’t think of failing as a negative notion. Every mistake that you commit to accomplishing the task is a lesson. Concentrate on the good rewards that you will reap after successfully accomplishing the task.

Keep the fire inside you burning and explore new things to grow and learn!
