1. Wash Your Face and Shower First Thing 

This may sound like a small thing but it can be paramount when overcoming laziness. Many people don’t shower right away when they wake up.

Taking a shower when you wake up first thing in the morning is an excellent way to get the juices flowing in your body and get you out of the state of laziness and start your day off on the right note.

2. Get Plenty of Sleep

A lack of sleep is a huge cause for laziness. You should ideally be striving to get 7-8 hours of sleep per night.

Peaceful sleep

When I get 7 hours of sleep I wake up more aware, alert, and focused. On the contrary when you get less sleep than that you will find yourself feeling more sluggish throughout the day and more prone to lazy habits.

3. Be Physically Active

When we sit or lay down too much we can fall into a state of feeling too comfortable and become lazy. A good way to start your day is by going out for a walk or jog just to get some endorphins running through your body. This will improve your overall mood and make you feel more like being productive for the rest of the day. If you work a desk job make an effort to get up and walk around as much as possible to avoid falling into a lazy complacent state.

4. Eat Healthy

Good diet is imperative to having high energy and avoiding laziness. Eat a fresh and diverse diet that is rich in proteins, fruits, and vegetables. Junk food will kill your energy and have you feeling lazy and sick.

There was a study done in 2009 by scientists that shows that eating junk food can lower your energy in as little as one week. Rats that ate junk food were able to run 50 percent as far as rats that were eating a healthier diet in only one week. By eating healthier you will have more energy and clarity to become more productive and overcome laziness.

5. Stay Motivated

Keep yourself motivated by creating a vision and having goals for yourself. Write your dreams down and where you see yourself one, five, ten, and thirty years from now and read it aloud to yourself every morning. This is a great way to keep yourself motivated and inspire you to take action to make that life come to fruition.


Many people are lazy because they feel as if they have no purpose, and this happens because they never took the time to create one and envision it! Of course these people will feel lost and have no idea what to do during their days so they will resort to sitting around watching T.V and being unproductive.

Keep yourself motivated yourself and overcome laziness!


Laziness is a bad habit to have but it CAN be overcome in many cases by just taking better care your body. Laziness is most cases is due to not sleeping enough, eating poorly, or just not having a vision of what you want for your life. Follow these tips and you should see big change.
