    How to over come laziness?

    Some days I just don't feel like to do anything and I hate that feeling.

    That's been all week for me. Just some kind of general funk. But I think I know the way out. Pick one small thing to do, do it, then take a rest. The pick one more thing and do it. After 2 or 3 little things, try a bigger thing. Then look back and say, hey, I got something done!

    Go over your bucket list and find something to accomplish there.
    Sleep and give you self a time to rest. You do need to do nothing and relax.

    Hi simonpeter35:

        There are a lot of reasons why someone could be lazy, or appear to be lazy. Some may have medical reasons explaining their laziness, while others are depressed, because of recent trauma's in their individual lives, that have affected them in a way that as an end result, causes them to be lazy. The real important thing here, is to find out or figure out what's bothering you?  Is it just plain boredom? Did you just get over a close relationship with someone, that could be getting you down? Or maybe there is an underlying medical problem, that needs further evaluation from a medical doctor. First find the reason, than you will be able to tackle your problem accordingly. I'm sure anyone who follows this approach will feel much better. You really don't have to be a Psychiatrist or medical doctor to figure out what is going on with you. Hope this helps somewhat.

    I don't think that not feeling like doing anything is considered lazy. It's the habitual NEVER wanting to do anything that is a problem and if you are not strong enough yourself to break the habit of NEVER wanting to do anything it is then that one should seek help to overcoming laziness.

    Well if the laziness appears on a free day, simply enjoy it.

    In case you are fed up with it, find something to do. The tip with the Bucket list is good. Otherwise go out for a walk. I had some of my best ideas coming to me, when I was walking through the streets.

    Otherwise do Sports or catch up with friends.

    Write a list of things to do.
    It takes like 5 minutes and it helps keep you on task whenever you want to procrastinate. At least for me it does.

    Another cool thing that my friend showed me was to (if you have an iPhone), write the things you need to do on a note, then take a "screen shot" by pressing the lock and center button at the same time. Then save that picture as your wallpaper for the lock screen. Then, whenever you open your phone, you have your To-Do list right in front of you.
    It'll help, but if you're lazy then you'll be sluggish if anything. Hope it helps cuz it's working for me! smile
