On the scale of a lazy slug to the hard driver, where do you fall? If you’re like me, it’s towards the industrious end, although I would never pass up the opportunity for a nap.
Slothful friends among us understand that not everything needs to be accomplished at warp speed. Or at all. All those idle people who have two speeds—slow and slower—may have had well-kept secrets they weren’t sharing. They get work done through others. They adjust their expectations. Laziness forces them to be creative.
But of course, you need a little kick to enjoy being lazy and being productive at the same time. Well, can we really do both? Let’s figure out!
Listen to Music
Music has often been referred to as food for the soul; it provides a soothing and calming feeling to the listener. Music has been discovered to work on the autonomic nervous system that is the part of the nervous system responsible for controlling our blood pressure, heartbeat and brain function.
This also includes the limbic system which is the part of the brain that controls feelings and emotions in humans. According to one piece of research, both these systems react sensitively to the sound of music.
Focus on just a few things at a time
We often create a big list of things that we want to do and achieve. Focusing on two or three things at a time will allow you to feel less overwhelmed. Instead, you will feel motivated, as your goals will now seem so much more achievable.
Out of the two sets of six-month goals below, which set gets you more motivated? Learn to play the guitar, do well at work, and get fit. Learn to play the guitar, do well at work, get fit, build big muscles, get better at singing, get top marks at school, learn how to draw better, and write a book.
Your physical surroundings have a big impact on how you feel. If your house is a mess, you are likely to feel even more overwhelmed—both because clutter creates a sense of chaos and because having to clean your house adds to your giant list of things to do in a ridiculously short amount of time.
Clean your house and organize your physical surroundings and you will naturally feel motivated to be more productive and active. You will be making life simpler and easier to manage. Or rather get some helping hands to do the job, you can simply call someone from the Corpus Christi roofing.
