Hello, guys welcome to this article you’re probably here because you find yourself a little bit too lazy spending hours in the bed binge-watching Netflix and doing everything but work on your goals you’re dreaming about making a ton of money obtaining that killer beach body or building your own company. But just don’t find the motivation to do so well we’re here to help you out in today’s article we’re diving deep into the 5 proven ways to stop being laz.
1. Focus on your mental health
It’s too often ignored and perceived as unnecessary but our mental health determines our way of living and going about our day if you cannot control your mind how do you expect to control your life when you’re suffering mentally you will automatically be distracted from reality.
Your mind will be in a state of war conflict between what you want and what you need gandhi wisely stated that happiness and peace are when what you think what you say and what you do are in harmony laziness fully depends on your motivation and take on life.
If you’re feeling down depressed and or lacking a purpose in life this will easily be translated into countless useless days of doing nothing instead of sitting up defining your goals and working towards them.
You’ll spend time thinking about why you’re in this position and how unlucky you are all this instead of realizing that you determine your own path and you are the only one stopping yourself from reaching great heights.
2. Maintain a healthy diet
while people think that maintaining a simple and healthy diet helps us to stay fit and active it actually also kills our laziness heavy and processed foods clutter our bodies and minds.
It uses a ton of energy to digest some of the unhealthy things we consume like sugary drinks and foods junk food as well as simply high processed foods in general regardless of what science has proven in the past decades we clearly also feel the difference between times where we follow a healthy diet and where we let ourselves devour anything that we crave.
Even though it feels so good at first we quickly feel the dip once the bag of chips is empty and it’s essential we remind ourselves of this feeling to avoid overeating and destructive behavior.
If you’re not sure where to start hop online and pick out a healthy recipe book healthy doesn’t mean boring if you really like mexican food for example learn how to cook it without over consuming the healthy ingredients and follow the recipe for a balanced lunch or dinner i personally have a tough time following.
A diet plan so i don’t force myself to do so as it only pushes me to overeat once i give myself the freedom to cheat instead i make sure that i eat right 99 of the time and actually cook food that i enjoy you don’t need to cut our carbs that’s a myth they are our number one energy provider but you can limit intake of certain types of carbs.
3. Make boring tasks fun
yes some tasks are just so damn boring but you know what without those boring tasks we wouldn’t enjoy the fun ones as much if you want to get rid of your laziness.
You’ll have to find a way to make the boring tasks fun unfortunately becoming a successful person isn’t just all fun and games from day one you actually have to work on things that you don’t enjoy and deal with situations that you don’t necessarily like constantly avoiding the boring tasks only stalls your progress.
You’re best off tackling them first thing in the morning so you have the rest of the day to devote to what you like to do best some of my least favorite tasks are doing the dishes and cleaning the house.
But i’ve managed to turn it around by listening to podcasts or turning on the tv as i do so by doing this i boost my mood and learn while listening to some of my favorite podcasts you might have to force yourself a little bit at first.
But after a while you feel the benefits of combining these two things quite strongly instead of having to look for the time to listen to my podcast i now can take off two to-do’s at the same time and i become more motivated to start the rest of my day i’ve already accomplished two things why stop now.
It’s no secret that regular exercise and motivation are linked growing up we’ve always been told that exercise makes you active and energetic this is absolutely true exercise has been an effective tool to make one happy healthy and fit and at the same time it reduces or almost kills laziness.
It has been scientifically proven that exercise reduces anxiety stress depression and other mental issues it helps to improve one’s mood and increase the energy level in our body as we feel like we’ve accomplished something.
If you work out consistently you won’t only feel better mentally because of the hormonal release but also because of the positive physical changes you’re experiencing a regular workout routine combined with a healthy diet can change your body in a matter of weeks you’ll feel mentally strong as you follow your routine and don’t give in on days.
That you don’t want to get up and break a sweat and you’ll feel physically strong because you simply are it can be a little bit tough at first getting yourself to put on that workout outfit but push yourself through the first times and you’ll soon be used to it and won’t want to skip a workout for any money.
5. Stop waiting for that ideal time
whoever looks for excuses will find them it’s too cold and rainy to go running and you’ve had a bad night’s sleep so today is simply not the day but who are you fooling there will never be a perfect time to chase your goals unless you accept that any time is a good time to start working towards what you want to achieve.
You won’t ever become successful mondays aren’t the only day to start your new diet plan you can also start on a wednesday or even friday when everybody else is indulging in junk food regardless of what other people are doing make sure that you are focused on the goals.
You want to crush and define whether you want that to happen sooner or rather later every single day you make yourself believe is a bad day to start is a day wasted let’s compare imagine you start defining your purpose today and you write down 10 steps to get there and you start that first step today now.
Let’s take someone who waits until next week because this week is just a little bit too busy who do you think will have the head start you or the second person it doesn’t really matter whether you’ve already wasted time in the past.
Because you can’t change that don’t fall into the pitfall of paralysis analysis the latter is the idea that analyzing every part of your plan stops you from actually starting it the best way to learn is to usually just dive in with caution.
