6 Ways to Tackle Laziness
Laziness may be due to several factors which we may not be aware of unless we try to fight it off. We often tend to ignore most of our important tasks because we do not feel like doing it. But have you ever thought about the actual reason for not being in the mood to complete your task or for your unexplained laziness? Knowing the exact reason can help you overcome it thereby increasing your productivity. Read on to know how you can effectively tackle laziness.
1. Take some action
Go ahead and do things that you do not feel like doing. Most of us are often scared to start something just because we do not feel like doing it. The simple rule is to do the things that you may be scared of doing or which are outside your comfort zone. Only once you jump into it, will you realize how easy it was. So, if you do not feel like dancing, dance. If you do not feel like reading, read. The only thing that stops you from not doing any particular task is running away from it. So do it right away!
2. Motivate yourself
It is difficult to accomplish anything if you are not clear about your goals and objectives. ‘Unclear goals’ and ‘lost purposes’ often takes you into the stealth mode where you are not interested in your task because you do not know why you are doing it. You need to be extremely self-driven and immensely motivated to do your task. You can thus overcome your laziness by reminding yourself the actual purpose of your work and its importance in your life.
3. Reward yourself for the initiated action
We tend to procrastinate for hours in spite of agonizing over our laziness. The actual reason for procrastination could be a lack of enthusiasm and motivation. If you plan a reward for yourself on task completion, you will be more inclined to finish the task rather than hovering over it for hours.
