Almost everyone has been constrained because they feel lazy. Laziness makes you reluctant to do tasks, prefer to be unemployed, easily distracted, or lose motivation. Even though it's difficult, you can overcome laziness by forming good habits, setting priorities, and eliminating negative thoughts so that you get up every morning.
Method 1 of 3: Building Motivation
Step 1. Think of the motives that keep you motivated
The main reason that makes a person feel lazy is lack of motivation. Maybe you're lackluster because you feel overwhelmed by a pile of tasks or the challenges you have to face aren't motivating enough.
Determine the goals to be achieved. When going about their daily lives, many people move without a plan and don't know what they want to achieve. Set aside time every day to ensure that the activities you do are able to realize the personal and professional life you dream of, for example in the financial, health, or educational aspects. Write down some reasons that make you want to complete the task as well as possible
Step 2. Celebrate success and achievement of targets
You will lose motivation if you have to do something that feels unimportant. Be optimistic and reward yourself every time you complete a task. This method prevents the onset of laziness because you will reap the rewards.
Before exercising, studying, or working, set realistic goals with specific goals. Write down the goal and then tick it if it has been achieved
Step 3. Don't beat yourself up
Laziness can become a repeating cycle that makes you dislike yourself. Failure to complete tasks because you are lazy can trigger depression which makes you even more lazy.
- You will always be lazy if you keep telling yourself that you are lazy. From now on, stop the mental dialogue. Repeat self-affirmations that say you are diligent. Visualize you are a hard worker who always gets the job done to completion. Do this step for 30 days until a new habit is formed.
- Take time to relax. There is a view that associates people who are not active as lazy people. This triggers feelings of guilt and increases laziness. Instead of blaming yourself, take time to enjoy relaxation without feeling guilty.
Step 4. Be personally responsible
Instead of relying solely on yourself, do various ways to motivate yourself by involving friends and family members. The support of others who make you able to take responsibility is a major source of motivation to maintain health, complete tasks, and realize goals.
If you want to stay in shape, invite a friend to exercise together or join a class. This method keeps you practicing regularly because you know he will be disappointed if you don't practice. To achieve your study goals, find classmates who are willing to study together so you can both discuss and get the best grades
Method 2 of 3: Eliminate the Want to Buy Time
Step 1. Admit that you like to procrastinate
One way to procrastinate is to keep yourself busy with trivial tasks so you can't be sure what's really going on. A person is said to be stalling when he:
- Just started working on something important, but decide to drink coffee or have a snack.
- Fill your daily life by doing activities that are less useful.
- Read memos or emails over and over again before deciding what response to give.
Step 2. Make a daily schedule
Many people are motivated to create a to-do list, but this step can often feel overwhelming. In addition, a schedule that is not applied when you go about your daily life makes you feel like you are imagining. Determine how much time you have available and how long each task will take to keep you energized and less lazy.
- Make sure you are able to accurately estimate the time it will take to complete each task. This method reduces the chance that you will procrastinate because the completion of the task is already scheduled. However, keep in mind that schedules can change suddenly due to unforeseen circumstances. This is a common thing. Include these activities in your schedule and then make adjustments.
- Set limits. People who like to procrastinate should set separate boundaries for personal and professional activities. For example, you can work productively for a certain amount of time if you have determined that you will leave work at 4:30 pm.
Step 3. Reduce busyness and do every activity well
Maybe you want to put off work because there are so many tasks to complete and you are confused about where to start. Many people feel they have worked harder than they did. This happens because they feel overwhelmed and the endless task makes it difficult for them to focus. We are always bombarded with stimulation and information from various sources. Live a simple life so you don't feel burdened and do nothing.
Don't access media for a week. Information that reaches us through the media is not necessarily useful. In addition to getting the information needed at work, ignore all media for a week by not watching TV, reading newspapers, accessing social media, looking for entertainment information on websites, and watching videos over the internet. Define the rules as per your requirement to implement this step
Step 4. Form new habits by doing little things as soon as you see them
For example, if you see a pile of paper that needs to be thrown away, put it in the trash immediately. Even if this isn't important, sooner or later you'll have to do it. Get in the habit of doing it right now so that you are free from long to-do lists.
At first, this step may seem difficult, but it will form good habits if you do it consistently. The habit of procrastination and laziness will only get worse if you keep procrastinating on completing tasks
Method 3 of 3: Starting the Day Well
Step 1. Start the day well
Instead of turning off the alarm ringing and going back to sleep, get out of bed immediately to start your daily activities. You'll be more energized and energized if you start the day moving.
You need to practice diligently for this to become a new habit. Place the alarm in a place where you can't reach it with your hands so that you have to make the physical movement of getting out of bed to turn off the ringer
Step 2. Get enough sleep at night
Lack of sleep makes you nervous when you wake up in the morning. This condition can reduce motivation and make you unable to beat laziness during activities throughout the day. Make sure you get enough sleep so that when you wake up in the morning, you are in top shape, feeling refreshed, energized, and ready to move!
Everyone's needs are different, but make it a habit to get 6-7 hours of sleep every night so you can achieve your best performance. Turn off electronic devices and put your cell phone away when you relax before going to bed at night. Create a comfortable atmosphere and ignore distractions that keep the mind active
Step 3. Start the day by doing some physical activity
Get in the habit of exercising in the morning to keep your energy levels high and make the most of your most productive hormone secretions. Exercise can also help you concentrate and focus throughout the day.
