Are you facing a problem finishing your assignment or homework on time? Are you going to bed early, but there is no sign of sleep in your eyes until you see the sunshine?
We know a habit is a form of a behavioral pattern. From childhood, we are strongly advised to maintain good habits; our elders introduced good habits to us by sleeping on time, eating healthy foods, and exercising regularly.
But if you are not able to follow healthy habits, you are listed in a category named “lazy.”
Is laziness a genetic trait? Is being lazy bad for health?
Lots of questions are related to this topic, so let’s dive in to find the answers to your question and a solution to help you out of it.
- Is laziness a genetic trait?
The answer is NO. Studies have shown laziness is caused when there is a lack of motivation, distress from failing, and forlornness; this leads to a diversion from your goal. These escalate the release of dopamine, a neurotransmitter responsible for compensation and gratification.
In short, if stated, laziness occurs when you run from the fear of failure.
- What are the habits that make you lazy?
There are a bunch of them, but today will state a few habits that make you lazy and a solution to get rid of those.
- Sleepless Nights
Now and then, all of us have passed lots of sleepless nights, either for educational purposes or for an exciting limited series on NETFLIX.
The problem started to grow its roots when the number of staying up late at night increased gradually.
As a result you started to lose half of your day feeling drowsy and the tendency to do nothing and make excuses for it.
- Unhealthy Food
Candies, burgers, and ice cream are the luscious words that make us drool; imagine those sitting on the top of the table staring at you. On the other side colorful, stale, bland salads gleamed with a drizzle of olive oil.
Which one would you choose?
Most of you will not think for a second and grab the junk foods, and this is where the problem starts.
According to data, a diet consisting of high amounts of fat, processed food, and foods high in sugar causes fatigue, and obesity leads to laziness and more severe health conditions.
Sleep and a proper healthy diet are the basic needs for our body. As now you know the few habits that result in laziness and some severe effects.
Let’s help you to show a way to kick the laziness from your life, but you need to keep in mind that every problem doesn’t disappear in one night. It requires effort and patience to break these habits into pieces not at once but slowly and effectively.
- Seven habits to break apart your laziness

prepare for sleep.
⇨ Keep your phone away from you at least an hour before you sleep.
