5 Fun Ways to Overcome Laziness and Procrastination

1. Reward Yourself

It’s a hard truth that sometimes, it’s easier to stay in bed and binge watch Netflix than it is to tackle your to-do list. But a great way to tackle your procrastination and laziness is to reward yourself every time you make progress. This will help you stay motivated and push through when you’re tempted to give up.

Whether it’s treating yourself to a delicious snack or taking 30 minutes for yourself, find something that you enjoy doing, but is also challenging enough to keep you on your toes. Or try a new skill or taking on a new project that benefits you.

2. Set Self-Imposed Rules

It’s time to take control of your life and stop procrastinating – with some self-imposed rules! This way, you’re both accountable and motivated to stick to the plan. Make a promise to yourself to not check your phone every five minutes or break for an extra snack when you get home.

If you fall short, “punish” yourself in some way-perhaps by watching a boring video or working out harder than usual the next day. Who knows? Maybe you’ll even surprise yourself with how much you can accomplish.

3. Talk to a Friend

If you’re struggling with laziness and procrastination, why not try talking to someone who can help you? A recent study showed that people who talk to a professional about their issues with laziness and procrastination are more likely to experience positive results than those who try to tackle it on their own.

Of course, this doesn’t mean you should rush out and hire a motivational coach – just find someone who can listen to your struggles, provide constructive advice and encourage you to keep going. Who knows, maybe you’ll even surprise yourself with the results!

4. Set Time Limits

For those of us who struggle to stay on task and fight the urge to procrastinate, setting time limits for ourselves can be a powerful tool. If you’re struggling to meet your deadline, for example, set a shorter one and give yourself a break once you reach it. 

We can also set limits on how much time we allow ourselves to check social media before getting back to work. This will help you stay focused and motivated, and you won’t feel overwhelmed by the task at hand.

5. Take Breaks

When all else fails, take a break. Sometimes, the best way to overcome laziness and procrastination is to step away from the task for a little while and come back to it with fresh eyes. This allows your brain to reset and gives you a new perspective on the problem.

Instead of stressing over all the tasks we should be doing, why not take a few minutes to watch a funny cat video or call up an old friend for a chat? These activities may not seem like they will help, but they could be the perfect way to shake off those feelings of lethargy and get back to work!

 After all, who wouldn’t rather take a short break than find themselves stuck in an endless cycle of procrastination? With this method, you’ll be able to keep your productivity levels high and your stress levels low.
