Are you a lazy person? If so, it's time to kick your lazy habit and start taking action!

Do you remember the feeling of dragging yourself out of bed, even though you were half asleep? It feels like your body is moving in slow motion.

You walk to the bathroom, and it seems so far away. Once you're up, there's no going back to sleep.

I'll show you three tips that will help you get started.

What is laziness?

  • Laziness is a state of being where the person is not inclined to work or move.
  • It is an unwillingness to work or do anything.
  • Laziness can be a symptom of depression where the person feels they have no motivation or desire to do anything.

3 Tips for Kicking the Lazy Habit

There are so many things that can make us feel lazy, but sometimes it's just our brain. That's because the way we perceive a task can determine how motivated we are to complete it.

  • Change your environment
  • Use a timer
  • Set specific, achievable goals

Change your environment

  • One way to change your environment is by moving around. If you feel stuck in a low mood, try finding a new place to work. A change of scenery can help revitalize your creative juices and give you that fresh start that you need.
  • Another way to change your environment is by surrounding yourself with people who support you and want the best for you. It might mean inviting friends to join you on social media or asking them to assist you offline as well.

Use a timer

When it comes to being productive, one of the biggest enemies is laziness. We all have lazy moments where we would take rather the easy road than put in the hard work.

Unfortunately, this often leads to us not accomplishing anything at all. But by using a timer, we can train ourselves to be more productive.

It can be tough to break out of the habit of being lazy, but it's worth it. Not only will you be more productive, but you'll also have more time to do the things you love. Here are a few tips to help you get started.

  • Set a timer for one hour and work on one task until it's finished.
  • Take short breaks every day to move your body and get some fresh air.
  • Reward yourself with something fun after completing a task or meeting a goal.

Set specific, achievable goals

Setting specific, achievable goals is the key to conquering laziness and forming good habits. When you have a goal, your brain will automatically start looking for ways to achieve it.

It is possible to accomplish this by breaking the goal down into smaller, more manageable tasks that can be completed in a short amount of time.

For example, if your goal is to read one book per week, you can break this goal down into the following smaller tasks: -

  • Read for 30 minutes every day
  • Read for one hour every Saturday
  • Find a book club to join


There are times when all of us feel lazy and unmotivated. But fortunately, there are plenty of ways to overcome laziness and get moving. I hope you find these tips helpful!
