So you’re struggling to get out of that comfy couch, huh? And that sugar crash after devouring a pound of cheesecake… Who wants to get up and do work after that?
What insane struggles we people of the 21st century have to go through every day.
Lifting off that heavy blanket to get out of the soft and cozy bed, the work that our legs have to do to make us stand up from that couch…and the monumental task of getting yourself to press the button to switch off Netflix or YouTube just so you can get some work done… ugh! The struggle is real!
How I Turned Laziness into My SUPER POWER!
Jokes aside, I’m not here just sh*ting on you for being lazy. I myself have struggled (and still do) with laziness A LOT!
But you know what? At one point I realized that laziness is actually my superpower. It makes me want to find easier and more efficient ways to do things.
I noticed that a lot of people, even though working hard, stick to very inefficient ways of accomplishing tasks because they never question the method they are following.
So it’s safe to say that laziness + Curiosity = Magic!
I cannot tell you how many times I’ve found better ways to automate or streamline even the smallest of everyday tasks just because I’m too lazy to follow the inefficient path of infinite grinding.
So shift your perspective, and wear being lazy as a badge of honor, BUT (and this is a huge but), you have to channel your laziness in a productive manner! Otherwise, it will bring you no good.
The affirmations in this article as designed you help you make that exact shift, and switch your mental state so you can get things done for once!
What are Affirmations and How Can They Help with Laziness
Affirmations are simple yet powerful phrases that you repeat often to redirect your thoughts and essentially reprogram your mind to attain a positive and desired outcome, while at the same time, overcoming distracting thoughts and negative emotions.
Whenever you find yourself stuck in a lack of motivation or inspiration to do anything, boredom, feeling lazy, and procrastinating tasks infinitely, use these positive affirmations to transform your mental and emotional state instantly!
