How to deal with laziness? Laziness – who is not familiar with this state, when all you want to do is lie on the couch, watch TV, listen to music, or go to sleep. Around us, there is usually a mess, the workplace is littered with various papers and books mixed with dirty mugs from coffee or tea, there is much unfinished business on the agenda. Often this happens before starting some important business, or when you need to do something urgently. There are a lot of reasons right away why you need to postpone or postpone this task. But all these reasons are just excuses. There is only one reason – we do not want to do this.
We don’t want to do it because:
– there is not enough motivation;
– lack of willpower;
– we are afraid of responsibility;
– the body needs rest.
There are several more reasons for which laziness appears later, but they are all somehow connected with the above. Laziness usually begins with rest – we need time to gain strength and energy, sleep, or tune in to a working wave. We rest, and then a little more, then a little more again, and this can go on for days on end – our planned things standstill, but we just can’t get together and start doing them. And at this time we are doing completely different, and sometimes not so necessary things – we read literature, play games, sit in social networks. The problem is that the further this situation drags on, the more difficult it is for us to end it later.
How to deal with the situation, overcome laziness, and get down to business? Only very strong personalities can immediately change the situation and begin to actively engage in all the necessary matters, but they just do not succumb to laziness. But for those who find it difficult to cope, there is the following solution: a phased one.
Stage 1. First, you need to look around you, start by putting things in order in your workplace, in your home, or the kitchen. Wash the dishes, do light cleaning, lay the laundry, iron the laundry – no matter what exactly you do, you must start doing the things you need and break away from the process of laziness. Sometimes the work is delayed and you will not notice how quickly you will redo all the chores around the house and take up work tasks with enthusiasm. At the same time, you also need to pay attention to your appearance – tidy up your hair, do a manicure, try a new style of clothing – whatever you like – if only it helps you start moving from a state of laziness.
Stage 2. Make a list of the most urgent tasks and tasks, categorize them according to the degree of importance, and start doing one task a day. If the task is very voluminous, then you can divide its implementation into parts and also accept it for implementation. After a couple of days, the load should be increased, starting to do things less urgent, but important. At this rate, in a week or two, you will get involved in work and will no longer look at the sofa every 5-10 minutes and think about the TV or computer.
3 step. After you have put yourself and your house in order, dealt with the most urgent and important matters, think about and analyze what happened – laziness does not just appear. Find the reason, and be sure to take it into account in the future. In most cases, the reason for laziness speaks of the need to reconsider your life, change your lifestyle, or change jobs, perhaps you need to develop willpower or learn to take responsibility. If you do not find a reason, then laziness will continue to return to you, and each time it will be more difficult to fight it.
Think Positive, Take A Moment Then Carry On
In our everyday life, we often meet with disappointments, troubles, various surprises, we expect more bad attitudes and actions from the people around us than good ones. Why is this happening?
And this happens precisely because we are tuned in to it. Yes, indeed, the situation does not always develop in the way we would like, people close to us do not always justify our expectations, and troubles always happen at the wrong time. But this is life, and it has its own rules. The world around us cannot adapt to the desires of each of us, but we can do a lot for ourselves.
The past cannot be changed
For example, for a start, we can try to stop replaying the situation several times, since it has already happened to us because this is already the past and cannot be changed. And then look at her from the other side. What experience have we got for ourselves? After all, it has long been a known fact that nothing in this life happens to us just like that. In any life lesson, there is always a hidden meaning, you just need to look for it. It also happens that the situation repeats itself several times, and we cannot understand why this is happening. It also suggests that life teaches us something, we must try to understand what.
Expect something good for yourself every day
Each person can learn to look at the situation from different angles if there is only a desire. And of course, it is very difficult to turn over your perception of the world and start looking for positive moments in events that are unpleasant for us. But as folk wisdom says “Water wears away a stone.” Believe me, some (for each his own) certain time will pass, and you will gradually begin to notice how you cease to dwell on problems for a long time, and then, over time, see certain good moments in them. The main thing is not to be afraid and try, try to expect something good for yourself every day. I am sure that if a person wants, then he can do a lot because our desires are limitless!
Surround yourself with positive things
Think good things, surround yourself with positive things, find in every day at least a couple of minutes to distract yourself from problems, and switch. For example, listen to your favorite music, read a couple of jokes, watch your favorite movie, or to be alone with yourself in silence. The main thing is that it makes you happy and allows you to relax. Over time, you will start to succeed, you will see, the troubles will no longer be so terrible, the problems will not be so big, but in the people around you, you will see so many good things that it will even be surprising, how did you not notice this before?
