How to Stop Being Lazy
Being lazy can be a very unhealthy way to live life. Perhaps worst of
all, it's very easy to fall into a pattern of being consistently lazy and
unmotivated. How you manage your time and what you do with it
now will affect you later on in life, so read some of the tips below
on how to stop being lazy and start being more productive.

Body, Mind and Spirit
If you're feeling lazy, it may have to do with how you're taking
(or not taking) care of yourself. Look at these tips to naturally
give yourself more energy.
Sleep. You should ideally be getting eight hours of sleep and
trying to get on a regular sleep cycle. Irregular sleep patterns
or sleepless nights can lead to low energy and lazy
Tips and Warnings Video
Wash your face. As soon as you wake up in the morning, just
wash your face and freshen up. It's a very easy way to wake
yourself up a bit more and start the day off right.
Exercise regularly. Even something as simple as a brisk walk
gives you natural energy and also releases endorphins that
improve your overall mood, making you feel more inclined to
go out and accomplish something that day.
Watch your diet. If you're not getting enough vegetables or
healthy foods into your body, it can also affect your overall
energy. Try to cut out excess junk food and eat regular meals
Get help. If none of the above methods help, your feelings of
laziness could possibly be linked to depression, or more
rarely a more serious mental health issue such as attention
deficit disorder. It may be worth seeking professional help.
Get In The Right Frame Of Mind
Feelings of laziness or lethargy are often directly related to how
we're feeling about ourselves or life. Here are a few ways to
improve your mood.
Clean your home and office area. Having an environment
free of clutter can often remove some of the clutter from
your mind, and make you feel more motivated and
Start your day with positive self talk. For example, "Today, I
will go for a run."
Listen to energetic music. Workout songs or exercise jams
that get you "pumped up" and feeling active will help set up a
positive tone to your day.
Change your environment. Different environments have
different impacts on our productivity. For example, if you're
trying to work on something in your bedroom, does it make
you want to work or just snuggle and sleep? You may want to
consider a different space if you're trying to accomplish a
Surround yourself with productive people. Who you surround
yourself with inspires your behavior. Hang out with people
who are successful and motivated, and their energy will likely
rub off on you.
Tell others about your goals. Have you always wanted a new
job or to run a marathon? Tell people about it! Whenever
people see you, they will now ask you about how things are
going with those goals. It's a great way to hold yourself
accountable for your actions.
Stop over-complicating things. Are you waiting for a perfect
time to accomplish something? There usually isn't one.
Unfortunately, perfectionism can be one of the biggest
reasons for procrastination.
Prioritize Your Time
If you have a lot to do, it can be so overwhelming that you end
up doing nothing. Here are some ways to maximize the time
that you have.
Make a list. If you have several things to do in a given day,
prioritize them into "have-to's," "need-to's" and "get-to's". Do
the have-to's first. Having things written out on paper often
makes it easier to see what is most important.
Do not do the worst items first. While you haven't expanded
any energy yet, do the most unpleasant tasks of the day
later. If you focus on the easier tasks first, you will have more
time to work on the worst things later. Things that you don't
like to do will obviously take more time than the usual. This
creates an extra barrier in your mind as you have other works
that you like to do or can easily get done with and yet, not
doing them, as you are stuck with something that you don't
Pick your projects carefully. Again, you don't want to
overwhelm yourself into lethargy. Pick one or two things to
focus on and fully devote yourself to those tasks. You don't
want to spread yourself too thin.
Break your work into small steps. Another way to avoid
having work seem too overwhelming is to break a task down
into individual parts, then focus on each part.
Create a detailed timeline. If you have a project and all
you've given yourself is the due date, it's very easy to put
things off until the last second. Make a timeline that lists all
the steps you will need to take leading up to that due date
and give yourself a reasonable time frame to accomplish
Value Your Time
Your time is precious. Here are some ways to avoid laziness
and make the most out of your day.
Learn to do something with your free time. Take up a new
interest or hobby. Life is more fulfilling when you're
Do all your projects right away. If you get a homework
assignment, don't put it off until the weekend. Start working
on it now while everything is fresh in your mind.
Eliminate your procrastination stops. Know what you spend
time procrastinating with and take action to remove it. If you
waste time surfing the web, work in a place that doesn't have
internet access. If texting friends is your vice, move your
phone into a different room or have a friend hold on to it for
Enforce punctuality. If you say you're going to start working
on something at noon, start at noon. Don't make it
acceptable to start 30 or 40 minutes later than what you
Set a schedule of working and breaks. It's natural that you
will need to take a break from working, but make sure that
time is limited. For example, you could commit to working for
the first 50 minutes of every hour and then take a break for
Just do it! There isn't any cure for being lazy. The only way to
overcome this is by setting your mind to the task and
completing it. Have self-discipline.
