10 TIPS To Overcome Laziness

No comments :


Tips To Stop Being Lazy
https://www.momentsofpositivity.com/      It happens to all of us. Sometimes, we just don't feel like doing anything, be it work, chores, or whatever… it's easier to chill out, relax, and forget about responsibilities. But what if this turns into a habit, and things start to pile up? Laziness can have a negative effect on both your personal and professional life. If it seems like you've slipped into a lazy cycle and you’re being unproductive, you should consider the following tips to get your life back on track!
 1 - Make Sure You're Not Overwhelmed 
    Sometimes, we have so much to do, that we just get overwhelmed, and then we end up doing nothing. It’s necessary to own realistic expectations regarding what you’re really ready to accomplish. If you have too much on your plate and no idea how you're gonna get it all done, you may just be overwhelmed, and not necessarily lazy.
2 - Get Motivated 
    Most of the time, laziness is due to a lack of motivation. Try to inspire yourself by thinking about the importance of whatever it's you wish to try and do. And if it's hard for you to stay motivated, here’s something you can try… Make a list of key points or reasons that you can reference when you need an extra push.
3 - Value Your Time
    Make the time you spend working on your tasks productive. Look at your to-do list and prioritize. This will make it harder for deadlines to sneak up on you, and easier to work productively - even if it's in short bursts.
 4 - Think About The Benefits
    Focusing on the difficulties of carrying out a task, leads to discouragement, avoidance of taking action, and laziness. Instead of thinking about the difficulties or obstacles, think about the benefits you will gain once you start taking action. When you concentrate on advantages and goals, productivity becomes much more rewarding. Learn the worth of every task and so work towards it.
 5 - Think About The Consequences
    Think about what will happen if you don't get your task or chore done. In most cases, merely considering the results of not acting, can push you to take action!
6 - Switch Things Up
     If you tend to leave the most complicated or tough tasks for last, switch it up, and begin doing those things first. You don't want to spread yourself too thin. Pick one or two things to focus on and fully devote yourself to working on those tasks. Remember, you have to work to reach your goal; it's not going to happen right away.
 7 - Track Your Progress
     Sticking to new changes can be challenging. Tracking results is an effective way to help make new habits stick. If you can see that ‘holding yourself accountable’ is helping you reach your goal, it will be much easier to keep up.

8 - Schedule Break Times
     You need to take an occasional break, but make sure that time is limited, so you don't lose momentum. For example, you could commit to working on your tasks for the first 45 minutes of every hour and then take a 15-minute break.
 9 - Look For Alternatives
     Is there a better, or more efficient way to do things? Think of ways you can be more effective. You’ll find that the more you streamline, automate, delegate, and outsource, the more you’ll get done with the same level of effort.
10 - Take Some Time Off
    Perhaps you're just too tired… With work, school, and all other stresses of everyday life, it can get pretty difficult to wake up early, exercise, get chores done, and do whatever else you need to do. It's easy to fall behind once you feel exhausted. If you're feeling such as you got to take a bit time to recharge, then take it!
     No one is immune to occasional laziness. However, it's how you deal with it and motivate yourself that can keep you on the right track. Everyone has a growing to-do list, and it can sometimes feel overwhelming. Overcoming laziness is achieved through a series of daily actions and activities - by choosing to act, instead of remaining passive. And every time you choose to act, you increase your ability to win, achieve goals and improve your life. So start right now! Develop the self-discipline you need, and get your works done!

Find An Extra Hour Daily To Transform Your Life

No comments :

     You are already thinking that this is impossible as your day is already full – you go to bed late and still don’t have everything done, right? Well, I think the same way occasionally until I make time to review my time. But, have you taken a few minutes to really review your schedule and activities to see if you can find an hour for yourself by stealing a little bit of time from other activities?
     Everyone needs a little quiet time because, without it, stress, depression, and anxiety tend to creep into our lives. Creating an extra hour each day for reflection can really pay off over time. You’ll realize that the standard of your life improves after you create time to mirror on your goals, dreams, and needs.
    Focusing your mind on what is most important to you, enables you to go after those dreams with a passion and bring them to life. Try these ideas to find that extra time to reflect:
    Re-purpose some of your TV time.
      Television is a significant time waster. Most people average 4+ hours of TV per day. If that’s you, this is an easy place to find an hour.
  Spend less time on the internet.
     The net is a great source of information, but it’s also an easy place to spend a lot of unproductive time. For example, how much time do you spend on social media websites reading about what your friends are having for dinner? Really? Just cut back and use the time for yourself.
  Early to bed, early to rise… 
     If you can get up an hour earlier, that’s an hour you have to yourself. There’s something quiet and peaceful about the morning that you don’t get at other times of the day.
  Limit your email time.
      Plan a specific amount of time, once per day, to check and reply to emails.
 Cut out some shopping.
      Drop all your shopping (except grocery shopping) for a month. It’s just a month. You can go for a month without buying anything, can’t you? If that seems like too long, try two weeks.
 Drop some of the extraneous after work activities.
       Instead of all the other things you might have planned, use some of this time for yourself.
 Ration your reading time.
      Keep the most important parts of your reading activity and limit the non-essential reading to a set amount of time each day.
 Cut down on your playtime. 
     It’s certainly important for your wellbeing to take time to relax and participate in activities that you enjoy. However, if you find that you play video games for hours at a time or spend frequent evenings out on the town, perhaps you can shave a little of this time off for reflection.
      These are 8 ways you can find another hour, and you can easily find 8 more. If you use just 4 of these ideas each day, you would only have to cut out 15 minutes of each activity to find your hour.

How can you use that hour to create a more fulfilling life? Try these tips:

1. Review your goals.
    Remind yourself of your goals every day. How are things progressing? Is your plan to reach your goals moving you forward? Just reading them each day is helpful.
2. Think about your day.
    Each day, ask yourself what you’ve learned. What did you do well? What mistakes did you make? Can you make choices that serve you better? How? What are you grateful for today?
Imagine if each day were a little better than the last, on the average. What would your life be like a year from now?
3. Meditate. Escape the hustle and bustle of life and quiet your mind.
4. Journal.
   You’ll be shocked at how much you can learn about yourself when you write down your feelings. Plus, a journal gives you a venue to write about your challenges, reduce your stress about them, and work through them to find solutions.

    Give yourself the gift of an extra hour each day for reflection. An hour a day can be transformational – find your hour and take advantage of it.

Never put off for tomorrow, what you can do today

Procrastination means delaying work or several tasks for a later time.
www.momentsofpositivity.com           Everyone procrastinates. Sometimes it’s fun to procrastinate. Sometimes waiting until just before a deadline is very motivating. And sometimes procrastination is even necessary—as a way to put off a dreaded task until we feel more energetic, prepared, or able to do it.
But sooner or later, chronic procrastinating will begin to hamper job performance. It will also affect our mood and state of mind by generating worry, fear, or added stress. Perhaps most serious for people in a leadership position, procrastinating may cause our peers and employees to feel that we’re holding up progress.
      If procrastination has become a problem for you—and you know who you try these to change your behavior so you can be more productive. An added benefit is that you’ll feel more upbeat, less worried and stressed, and more confident about your reputation and effectiveness.
 Put it in writing.
 Write down the task you’ve been putting off. Doing this brings the project to the front of your mind so you can’t easily ignore it.
