Life Made Easy: Laziness Hacks To Have
Laziness hacks every millennial should know
What was the other stereotype Millennials often get besides having over-inflated egos? Or not being able to budget? Being awfully lazy. Yes, we Millennials have received a lot of flack for unsavoury things. But that does not mean every single young person belongs to that cliche. After all, laziness is inherent in many generations of people.
Laziness comes in many forms. Laziness can come in the form of procrastination. It can also come in the form of not being motivated. It can come disguised in many other forms we don’t even know.
There are many ways for you to not be a lazy bum at home, in the office, or wherever. Would you care enough to not be a slacker? Well, we have come up with several ways for you to stop being a residential couch potato! After all, laziness has a negative impact on your overall quality of life too.
Completing smaller tasks
As the cliche saying goes: big things start small. Tackling the big things may seem like a Herculean task at first, which is true! Some people may not even start their big project until maybe half a century later.
Sometimes starting with the small things may help you kick-start into doing bigger tasks of the day. It could be as simple as picking up your dirty laundry or sweeping the floor. Heck, it could be as simple as brushing your teeth too!
As long as it helps you transition into doing the bigger tasks for the day, you’re good.
Making to-do lists
“It’s current year, no one does to-do lists anymore!” you may scream. It may be fairly true. Making a to-do list helps give you an idea of what you need to complete for the day.
To-do lists help you priorities which tasks need more of your attention first. It also helps you know which tasks deserve less attention. Not forgetting to mention, it also helps you be a more organised person. That’s how you prove to your superiors how trustworthy you are in managing yourself!
Set a schedule
That’s right. Set a schedule for the things you have to do for the day. Be it running errands, going for appointments, having to send in that deadline, setting a schedule is important. This contributes to making you look more like a grown-up.
It will also make you look and feel better about yourself too. It may let you know you have completed the necessary tasks of the day.
Manage your time!
Not managing your time effectively has a domino effect on your daily lifestyle. Maybe the reason why you feel lazy is because you spent way too much or too little of your time on the wrong tasks. Once again, prioritize your tasks and see how it fits into your schedule. It’s all about managing your time critically.
Doing things last minute
This may contrast the previous points for good reasons. Many people don’t see rushing your work last minute as advisable as you may make mistake.
For some people, the only way for them to get moving is to do their work last minute. Under stress, under pressure. It’s how they function. If you work well under pressure, maybe doing your tasks last minute is what fits you best!
Delegating your tasks to someone else
One smart way of avoid being lazy is to delegate some of your tasks to the people around you. It can be small chores or errands. You may send your friend to help you grab your lunch for you. Alternatively, you may get your roommate to help do your grocery shopping for you while you try to rush that last minute assignment. It’s all down to whether your friends are willing to back you up.
After all, you are not a superhuman who can do everything, right?
Focusing on your goals
Everyone sets goals when they want to achieve something. Pretty sure you have set goals for yourself too. When you are feeling lazy, access your goals to see if it is still relevant to you. If your goals no longer speaks to you the way it used to, it simply means your goals are too big to achieve.
But let’s say you are still into achieving your huge goal. Then it’s worth breaking it down into smaller goals. That way it may set you to working on your goals and not come across as lazy.
With all that, we certainly hope you found ways to combat your laziness effectively. We would like to clarify that all the aforementioned ways to deal with laziness do not mean it works for everyone. Each individual have their own unique ways to deal with their laziness.
It can be conclusively said Millennials are not exactly the laziest people out there. With a bit of motivation, they could easily be some of the most hardworking people on the planet.
