    I love lolling about and procrastinating though it’s very dangerous when it comes to learning english…I think it’s the nature of our being that prefers doing low impact or low value things and that’s why there are a lot of methods nowadays like meditation or hypnosis aimed to help us stop doing this habit!!!
