Are You Lazy?

Ok so don’t get offended. I’m probably not talking about you, but I know a lot of lazy people.

21-day challenge at Sacramento gym for women

  • People who would rather have a root canal than go do a workout.
  • People who choose take-out over home cooked, every night of the week because it’s easier than cooking.
  • People who would rather spend time looking for that “magic pill” to and get instant results than put in the work.

Now let me be the first to raise my hand; I have lazy days for sure.

Some days I wake up and the last thing I want to do is push my limits and push heavy weight around. The burn, the shortness of breath, the effort. Ughh…some days it’s just not whats up.

I also have days when I’d rather starve than cook. And since I don’t actually want to starve I grab something passable on the go.

Speaking truth, we ALL have our occasional lazy day on the couch, but lately it seems that more and more people are turning laziness into a lifestyle.

The thing is, you or they may not even realize they’ve become kinda lazy….

Here is a quick self-examination:

  • Are you are habitually inactive?
  • Would you rather be a passive observer than an active participant?
  • Are you a master excuse-maker?
  • Do you find shortcuts in order to avoid the long haul?

If you answered yes to more than one of those questions don’t panic and I forbid you to get down on yourself. That’s not going to help you.

Not making any excuses for you but there may in fact be some legitimate causes of laziness.

Here are just a few…

  1. Sleep Deprivation: When you’re short on sleep it’s easy to become unmotivated, which quickly turns into laziness.
  2. Caffeine Abuse: Starting your day with a jolt of java may help with your initial alertness, but the dip in energy that takes place a few hours later could be the reason that you become lazy later in the day.
  3. Bad Habit: At some point being lazy simply becomes a habit. If every night after work you head straight to the couch, it soon becomes automatic and not a conscious decision..
  4. Inactivity: If your job keeps you in a chair for hours at a time, and you don’t exercise when off the clock, then your body is just accustomed to inactivity.

Laziness begins when you ignore that little nagging voice in your head. You know, the one that reminds you when you should take action on something rather than sit by and let the opportunity slip away.

So, is today the day that you will kick laziness to the curb?

In can be daunting. How do you just up and change everything?

The answer is you don’t.

But, one of the best ways to test out new habits and lifestyles is to dip your toe in it for 21-days. Just commit to your new active and healthy habits for 21 days and then after that you can decide.

In fact I am going to offer you a 21-day challenge that will address all the hot spots to get you on your way to being active and feeling great,

Keep an eye out.
