I think "laziness" is just a lack of motivation for most people. So, the solution is to find some way to motivate yourself with little, acceptable bribes. For example, I would tell myself that if I studied for an hour, I could take a little break and read a book for half an hour. Of course you have to modify that so your time frames work, but that's how I got through school. It works for housework too: Okay, I need to mop the floor, sweep, dust, make the beds, do the dishes, walk the dog, or whatever--I will mop the floor and play on my computer for 10 minutes, then I will dust the living room and take another 10 minutes on the computer, and so on. It isn't really being lazy, it's just not being motivated. Do what you don't want to do so you can do something you do want to do.
Some people need more than 8 hours of sleep. A brisk walk every other day helps, even if it is 1/2 mile. Mostly, keep away from high-fat foods and eat oranges and berries. I work a 12-hour shift (really 13 to 14 hours) and at about the 6 to 7th hour, I eat 2 clementines (small orange that peels easily) and at least 12 ounces of water. When my water intake is low, I also notice that my energy is low.
Set a schedule, and have the determination to stick to it. Investigate on your own some successful people(not the inheritance crowd),and you will see how disciplined they are with their time. When you schedule your time , you won't have time to be lazy.
It can be incredibly difficult to get out of the laziness rut, but the simple truth is- the more you do, the more you WANT to do. If you can get yourself into a routine of keeping busy you will quickly find yourself defeating your laziness. If you are unemployed or have few responsibilities, it can be very hard to fill your day with meaningful activity and once again- the less you do the less you feel like doing anything at all! Try to come up with a list of things to do each day and tick them off as you do them- this will give you a sense of accomplishment and hopefully get you back on track. Laziness is curable but the catch-22 is that the cure is working harder when you feel too lazy to work at all! I wish you luck, Im very prone to laziness myself.
Yes, I had low self-esteem but I felt that I didn't 'deserve' to get any help! One time, I sneaked in the back door and sat in the back aisle. All I learned in that self-esteem class was to grasp my right hand with my left hand and kiss myself all the way up to my biceps repeating the mantra, "Danny is wonderful, mmm, mmm,mmm,mmm,mmm" I finally got Prozac started doing beginning Aerobics and felt wonderful, I could do MORE now than ever. Don't give up: there IS a solution out there YOU have to find yours.
When you see something that needs to be done .... get up and DO IT. Find something you really like doing and do that one thing until you master it. Never leave any task half done. Even if it's a BIG TASK, plan to complete it in small/medium portions until finished. When you are finished with a task and you know in your heart you have done your best and it is finished, you will feel that sense of accomplishment that comes with determination to get a job done. You'll feel better about yourself and look forward to tackling new things and even bigger things! GOOD LUCK and GOD SPEED!!!
that's a good question, im pretty lazy to so i think of ways to try to overcome the laziness never look back just look forward. when you wake up in the morning, DO NOT THINK ABOUT HOW WARM AND COMFY YOUR BED IS AND HOW ANOTHER MIN WONT HURT, just get up. and think of ways to get your laziness moving and test them to see which is successful cuz different people have different ways of doing things so that it affects them successfully. point is, just try things like making a list of things to do and tellin yourself constantly that you can and will do them. if it doesnt work cuz ur laziness doesnt fall for it, think of some thing else u think might work.
