To be lazy and not to exercise
We are often reluctant to get up early in the morning and are too lazy to exercise. We don’t do yoga because we are lazy. Or we do regular exercise, sports, morning walks, swimming, gym, aerobics, zumba, folk dance, etc. We do not do our physical, mental work or exercises regularly due to laziness. Lazy habits can have a detrimental effect on our body and mind, and our lives can be disrupted.
Improve yourself: Even when laziness comes, you need to encourage yourself. The feeling that time should be respected should be brought to mind. I need to make a commitment and resolve from the bottom of my heart that I must do this work. If you are not interested in one physical exercise, continue the other type of exercise, forcing you to wake up in the morning with the help of an alarm or someone.
When you feel lazy, you can gradually reduce your laziness by doing dances or exercises like playing music. If you don’t feel like exercising, walk about ten thousand steps. Include climbing, descending, and so on. Bathing is also a good exercise. When you feel lazy, practice self-massaging all over the body, tapping, moving the knees even while sleeping, sitting, lying down and kneeling. If you miss physical exercise in the morning due to laziness or other reasons, increase some physical activity throughout the day. Never exercise too much but never do too much. Instead, let’s practice the right way every day, even if it’s just a little bit.
