Laziness can lead to low self-esteem and depression

What a great struggle for us to face so many of us mandra. This urge to leave for tomorrow (or for the past) what we need to do today (a phenomenon known as procrastination). I what desire they provoke in me, I admit, those who are capable of not giving up, of keeping a firm course towards their goal.

I just assumed I am dominated by at least two deadly sins, but in reality hardly anyone escapes. At all ages and at all times of our lives, laziness, hiding and stalking is ready to dominate us.

Laziness, relaxation, laziness, laziness … so many synonyms for the same mood

It doesn’t matter if our job is to write, work out, diet, quit smoking, study for an exam or go to the gym, it doesn’t matter. laziness will suspend us at any time to try to make us give up our “tasks”.

Its goal is none other than to push towards pleasure at all times; an immediate pleasure that takes us away from duty, that temporarily saves us from what we don’t want to do. It is binomial inaction against motion, entropy against expansion.

Why should we free ourselves from laziness

Overcoming laziness produces inner satisfaction, increases self-esteem; while being dragged down by it lowers us and can end up depressing. How can this happen? now you will understand.

Let’s say my goal is to lose weight. In this situation laziness will appear as a constant invitation to give me a moment of pleasure, For example by opening a packet of crisps to temporarily escape the evils to which food discipline obliges me.

After the moment of enjoyment, once the first potatoes have passed beyond the palate, the voice (or voice) of my inner Father, the one who scolds us by making us feel guilty, will return his fury against me as a punishment : “You are unable to maintain a minimum of discipline! You will never lose weight! Nobody will want you like that! You will be a seal all your life!”, Etc.

The chain of jewels that can be said internally he should be punished by law.

Giving up immediate pleasure lowers our self-esteem

The abandonment of duty for immediate pleasure automatically leads to internal reproach. We become critics of ourselves, cruel and ruthless over and over again, to the point of hating ourselves. And to make matters worse we activate the comparison with others, to those who have the psychological bias of not being at the head of the other, We judge better than us, the most capable.

In this way, the negative effect of laziness and the resulting self-withdrawal is none other than affecting our self-esteem: at the level of the appreciation and love we feel for our own. nobody. Laziness makes me want less, lowers my self-esteem.

And the less I face her, the more power she has over me. It’s like a snowball down the mountain, its strength increases as it progresses. In this case, the ball is made up of laziness, self-portrait and low self-esteem. as they gain strength in us they depress our mood.

A reflection to face laziness and overcome it

Background, it’s all about attitudeThis is why they are determined to face it tenaciously and there (I am including myself here) that sometimes they win and many others lose. And in this matter of life, there is only one recipe but that of combat.

Overcoming laziness, doing what we know we need to do increases our self-esteem, makes us happy, and keeps us away from depression. for that all you have to do is change the chip and take on the suffering that comes with our goal by giving you a few noses.. I insist, it’s just a question of attitude and habit. Choose to escape or confront yourself. Maybe now that you know that the problem is with your self-esteem and sanity as well, you think about it better before you let yourself be swept away in immediate pleasure.
