Get started

Do you find it hard to get around doing the things you need to?

Do you tend to postpone doing things that are challenging, new or difficult?

And does this hinder you in living the life you (really) want?

If you would like to get some support in getting started doing the things you want or need to do – then you might want to join our “Get Started” online group.


Not doing the things that are actually important to you, also called procrastination, can lead to feelings of guilt, shame, stress and low productivity, and the behavior can create negative consequences for your studies, life and general well-being. The Student Counselling Service offers an online support group where students help each other “getting started” and breaking the vicious circle of procrastination.

The group members might experience procrastination in relation to many different areas or themes in their lives. Some might feel the need to get started with their studies, others might feel a need to start finding more friends, working out, joining organizations or reconnecting with hobbies.


In the beginning of each session we review the tasks from last week. Afterwards there will be both group and plenary talk on a topic that the group leader gives a short presentation on. It can e.g. be about setting goals, prioritizing, experiencing negative feelings when studying or whatever might be relevant to the group members. In the end of the session each member will define their own task for the following week. The group members help each other make sure the tasks are both specific and realistic.


The group meets online every week on Mondays at 8:30-10:00. The first session will be the 21st of September 2020. You can join the group continuously on a first come, first served basis.
