Here are 4 common reasons for chronic laziness


Don’t we all have those days when it’s impossible to get up and get moving. Staying in bed and lazing out the whole day can seem like the best thing you can do with your day.

But being lazy is not exactly a positive feeling. Over time, being constantly lazy makes you doubt yourself; it will impact your productivity at work, affect close relationships and in time increase stress levels.

Sometimes, being lazy or feeling demotivated is simply the body’s way of getting you to slow down. But if laziness is a chronic condition and beyond your control then it’s possible that there could be an underlying psychological cause which you might not have addressed yet.

In such a scenario it is important to look at your current routine, your lifestyle, every day choices and then see what is missing and make the necessary changes.

There could be any number of reasons why you feel lazy all the time. Here are some of them:

Too many choices

There is so much happening around you that requires your attention, it’s tough to not be spoilt for choice. Sometimes when there are too many choices it can get overwhelmed and stress you out because you cannot distinguish which one would be the best for you. It’s like a huge buffet spread, while it’s delightful to look at, when you actually start eating, the varied options will actually stress you out because you know you can’t have it all but at the same time you don’t want to miss out on anything tasty. In the end, you end up not doing enough justice to the meal.

Not sleeping enough

If your sleep patterns are scattered and you’re not sleeping a good eight hours at the same time every night, over time the lack of sleep will cause sleep deprivation and fatigue and eventually lead to laziness. To combat this, it is necessary to make a sleep schedule and stick to it. Sleeping well consistently will also improve energy levels.

Trying to do it all at once

If you are someone who prides themselves on multitasking then over time you are going to get lazy. This is because multitasking may seem like you are on top of things but in reality, taking on too much work will only stress you out and make you tired. It is instead better to take on one job at a time. Instead make a list of priorities and focus to the important ones.

Current routine is boring

If your everyday routine is mundane and you feel like you are stuck in a rut then the boredom and monotonous routine can make your brain shut down and tune you out.

Over time this can make you demotivated and makes you feel disinterested in doing anything, even if it is critical and important. To combat this, it is important to do something different each day, even if it is something small and marginal. The smallest change in the routine can break the cycle of laziness.
