More Ways to Stop Being Lazy
Don’t want to clean your house every Saturday but hate starting the work week in a dirty place? Force yourself to get motivated to clean. Also reward yourself after. Take a couple of hours to spruce the house up and then get out and go for dinner or ice cream as your reward. Don’t get in the habit of letting things go because you don’t feel like doing them. Force yourself to do it and then get it done and out of the way. You’ll feel so much better once it’s completed.
Consider the Benefits
Oftentimes, we don’t want to do things because they’re not fun. Tasks like cleaning the house, mowing the lawn, cooking, grocery shopping and more are time consuming and drain our energy levels. There are more fun things to do instead. However, consider the benefits of each daunting task before you write them off. Wouldn’t it be nice to eat a home cooked meal several times a week? Pulling into the driveway and seeing your freshly mowed lawn is awesome, right? There are more benefits to getting these things done – fun or not – than there are to not doing them.
Below, you’ll find quick tips that you can easily carry with you throughout your entire day, every day. Don’t forget to fall back on them when you feel like all is a lost cause and you simply can't do another productive thing.
- You deserve to be productive. Many people assume that they’re not good enough to deserve the outcome of a productive situation. Start believing in yourself. Know that you can, and will, clean the kitchen every night before going to bed. Believe that you have the strength and energy to do so.
- Try harder. Putting in more effort will work. Always do your best, even if it’s not good enough for someone else. Knowing you did all that you could will motivate you to work harder.
- Never say “should.” Instead, use words like must, have to, or will. For example, instead of saying “I should really get the kitchen cleaned,” say “ I must get the kitchen cleaned.”
- Get in the habit of doing things. If you struggle with something in particular, put your mind in automatic mode. If you methodically take a shower every morning without thinking, you can also do other things without thought as well.
- Don’t feel guilty. Doing so will suck any ounce of motivation you have left right out of you.
Ready to get out there and start being more productive? If so, congrats! You’ll not only feel better, but also have more energy. Don’t let laziness get you down. Use these tips to help!
