Laziness and what it is while what it isn't

Laziness : A look at it

(My personal story and adventure with it)

      Let us talk about the long debate regarding laziness and what it is. Laziness is something that we are all too familiar with. There are days that we cannot muster the courage to get out of bed. Other times, we have the energy and willpower to do the things we want. It is definitely not in our hands when we lose that willpower but something we can do to better our motivation is to fight it off. When we find ourselves depleting our motivation levels, we can seek inspiration from hidden places. 

      A post that I wrote for Lifehack described seeking inspiration in hidden places. The URL is the following:

      I wrote this post a few years ago, and I was not motivated at all while writing or actually about anything in general. I must say that I was depressed and in a very dark place that I just couldn't shrug off. However, because I felt so dark and alone, I knew that expressing my emotions was important, so when people thought that I was in my room doing nothing, I would be on lifehack, brushing up on my writing skills. Others would think that I am lazy, but the fact was that I was honing my talent. 

To one person, you may be lazy. But as a matter of fact, you just may be in a struggling phase where you are trying to identify the things that make you happy. I was in this dark phase where people would just think I was lazy, but I was just really figuring out things. 

In due time you will observed that this laziness turns to fuel all of your future dreams and aspirations. You have to find and discover that but be diligently patient. Patience is fruitful indeed. 


  1. Laziness is something that has always plagued me. I would sit around my apartment all day, rarely going out enjoying my time with friends and family. I knew I needed to figure something out because my depression was getting out of hand and I wanted a serious change in my life. Around this time last year, I took a huge step to get out of my laziness and isolation stage and joined a cross fit gym. Ever since I joined I found so much motivation to workout and be more social! Life drastically changed from that point on. I am constantly on the go and operating at a fast pace. I am no longer depressed or feel all that lazy. Even though I still have my lazy days they are not nearly as bad as they once were.

  2. Hey Sean,

    I know what you mean. I still have those days but then I can recharge. I think it is all in the mind, and with medication, exercise, and meditation, anything is possible. And, I commend you for doing something proactive about it. When we don't try, we succumb to the pressure. When we decide we want to do something about it, then nothing stops us from succeeding. I am so glad you did something about it and are better now.

  3. Sean,

    Thank you for commenting on my post! Hope you are well and do well. Thanks for reading my post and best of luck with whatever you are doing. Wish you the best of luck and motivation, inspiration, success, and resilience in all your endeavors. Everyone deserves to work hard and get the fruits of their labors. You will too.

    Good luck with cross fit because I have heard that there is so much discipline required. I would definitely like to one day be a participant of it but I know I just don't have it in me. I am more of a brainy kind of student rather than a physical. However, time, pressures of maintaining health, can get the better of us, and I may need to be proactive.

    Like you, I hope I find that inspiration in me. Best of luck with everything. Now, I am done with my ranting on about this. But, I appreciate your cordiality of reading my post and then commenting on it.

  4. Hello Ramanpreet,

    I really admire your post, I really relate to you in the same way, but through painting and drawing. Throughout high school, I used to lock myself in my room, especially when I was stressed and or when I could not find words to describe how I felt, it would often come out in my paintings, and I am sure it did the same for you. It was often a creative outlet for me. And sometimes when others see it at laziness, your mind is so hard at work, creating wonderful pieces of art. Best of luck to you in your writing!

  5. Madison,

    You are also a wonderful writer. I have seen your posts and they are each wonderful. Good luck with everything.
    May you do well in everything you place your heart in.

    I wish you well and best of luck. You can and will accomplish anything you put your heart, soul, and mind to. -RK
