If you sometimes feel like doing nothing, you need not worry because even the most industrious people sometimes feel so and actually it’s required.
However, if you get the feeling of laziness too often and keep many of your chores pending, it could be a sign of something wrong.
There are many reasons behind this lazy feeling including a scary to-do list, a lack of interest in your job and even a medical condition.
Earth’s Wisdom today wants to suggest solutions for overcoming the lazy feeling and getting things done on time.
Due to more competitive environments, there is an increase in perfectionism is past some years. Due to this, unrealistic expectations are also increasing. Parents too are becoming more controlling and anxious than past generations.
Due to the rise in perfectionism, people are becoming excessively critical of themselves and others and there is a rise in anxiety and depression.
There’s no doubt that you should do your work correctly. But expecting yourself to be overly perfect can let you avoid the work altogether in the long run. So, don’t overemphasize on perfectionism.
If you know you cannot do certain work within a certain time, you should become practical and set a realistic goal. Taking on too much can cause burnout which doesn’t have an actual clinical diagnosis but definite symptoms identified by medical professionals like loss of motivation and interest, exhaustion and a wish to escape.
Set smaller goals which you know you can achieve so that you will feel confident and more motivated.
Instead of becoming depressed with a thought that you are lazy, think on your strong points, and use them to set goals. Try to use your strengths for various aspects of a task to help you complete it. According to research, focusing on strengths improves productivity, engagement in work and positive feelings.
If you find a certain task difficult, think on how you can do it and plan accordingly. Once you start thinking on this, you’ll find that it’s actually easy, at least not impossible. Remember to be practical about the time you’ll take, effort you’ll need to put in and other similar factors. A plan will help you get a direction, confidence and motivation to do the task.
Thinking that you are lazy is a kind of negative self-talk. You should stop the negative internal voice and instead start the positive one. Tell yourself that you have all the ability to do a certain thing and that you are perfectly industrious and will do it.
Don’t do the mistake of assuming that asking for help is your weakness. Not seeking help could lead you towards failure. A study found that people who didn’t ask colleagues for help tend to be dissatisfied with their work and had lower performance levels. Seeking help enhances your chances of success and helps you connect with people who can motivate and encourage you.
Making a few healthy changes in your life may also help you become more motivated and focused. Here are a few:
