You’re laying in your bed exhausted and tired, you know that you have to get up and get started on your to-do list, but you just can’t bring yourself to do it. We all have those lazy days and lazy moments where we just want to drop all of our duties and jobs for the day and curl up in bed. So how do we stop being lazy? A few simple tricks will make it easier for you next time all you want to do is sleep in.
1. Schedule Your To-Do List Items
Simply writing a to do list sometimes just isn’t enough. You have what you need to do but the hard part is actually doing it. By scheduling time for each task on your to do list you are making the task more concrete and a part of your day, hopefully encouraging you to start the list.
2. Get Straight Out Of Bed
For myself, getting out of bed is the hardest part of the day, because sometimes I just want to keep sleeping. However, it makes it easier to get up and stay and feel productive when I roll out of bed as soon as I wake up. It’s like an instant alarm to the body that you’re ready to start your day.
3. Listen To Energetic Music
When you know you have a daunting task to start such as putting away laundry (my least favorite thing) or washing dishes, throw some headphones in and listen to you’re favorite music. It will surely help the time past and it won’t be so boring.
4. Break Big Tasks Into Smaller Steps
When you know that you have a large task to get done it can be pretty intimidating which may make you want to keep putting it off. By breaking up the large task such as cleaning the house into smaller tasks like cleaning the office, bedroom, closet, etc makes it more manageable.
5. JUST START!
I have found that most of the time when I’m being lazy if I simply just suck it up and start the task is not as bas as I thought it was. It takes a lot of will power to get out of a comfy bed and start your tasks for today, but we all know we have to do it!
Being lazy is easy when you have a comfy warm bed and you’re tired. However, being productive is one of the best feelings, when you’ve finished everything you needed to do for the day and still had time to relax you feel on top of the world. I hope these tips helped to motivate you today and now you’ll be on to your tasks for the day!
