COVID19–Feeling more lazy, listless?

During these times of quarantine we have more time to be productive, and yet for many there seems to be a tendency to become lazier. With the extra time to attend to things, like organizing that closet or garage, reaching out remotely to family and friends, reading that book that’s collecting dust on the shelf, why in the world do we find ourselves procrastinating and putting off these tasks?

No doubt that stress and anxiety about our COVID circumstances could account for this lethargy, but regardless of the reason, living effectively in the present requires responsible, here-and-now action. It’s a lot easier–and effortless–to imagine taking responsible action tomorrow. Truth is, there will never be a better “now” for purposeful action. In fact, there will never be anything other than “now.” When the future does come, it will only be your new “now.” Therefore, if not “now,” when?

Laziness is nothing more than an indulgence. Be productive, you’ll feel much better.
