When I was a child , I am so used hearing the word that I am lazy. They say I am lazy because I am not doing the household chores. Well I do house hold chores but it's not as good as they did. They said I am lazy because I am always watching television and I am lazy because I am not as good as my hardworking and responsible cousin that has the same age with mine.
I accepted the fact that they called me that way but it always hurts me when they are sharing it to other people especially my mother. I feel so belittle everytime she called me that and even make it as fun. I remember when one of my Aunt said to my mother that time , maybe she's not lazy. Maybe she's not into household chores but shes into studying but since my mother didn't know my hardwork when it comes on my academic because she never asked me about that eversince , she didn't knew that.
Cleaning the house is not my forte and I am not good at it. I am not also organized when on fixing things. Called me burara because it's true but I am not proud of it. Me and my husband is always having an argument when it comes on procrastinating things. Like now , I fold our clothes last night but still I didn't put it in our dura box haha. Sometimes I need to motivate myself and talk to myself like hey Yen. Please do it now. Like that
Maybe I am lazy in the house but not at work. During those times that I working you will never see me filing a leave or an absent unless I am not feeling well. If I have a headache and I can feel that I can still go to work then I will go to work.
I always render overtime as long as we have overtime. I remember when my officemate asked us " Ilan naba binubuhay nyo? Grabe kayo mag OT e. " . Because we are going to work even Sunday for rest day over time.
Burnout or stress.
If my mind is occupied with lots of thought it's make me also unproductive. Anxiety makes me lazy because what I've felt inside affects me physically. @Jeaneth has an article about it , how to differenciate burn out and laziness.
Weather can also affect why we got lazy. When it raining , the weather is cold and it's good to stay in our bed and sleep. It's good to stay in the house eating your favorite food and watch television instead of doing something productive. When it sunny and it's so hot it's also hard to move because of the irritating feeling of the sweat on your body and because of the hot temperature you can also having hard time to breath.
Most of the girls here will be relatable to this. During those menstruation period , you will feel the laziness in your body because of the heavy feeling of your body. As for me when I am having a monthly visit , I am having a headache and a heavy feeling also resulting that I want to stay in bed to rest.
I am having a one to one talk to myself. I know it's weird but when I am planning to procrastinate , my alter will whisper in my mind saying hey you need do to that and don't do it tomorrow. Like washing the plates every meal time. Sometimes its effective but sometimes it's not.
Thinking about your goals makes me motivated and even if I am lazy I still manage to do it. For example , writing an article per day. To be honest sometimes I want to take a nap while my son is still but I also want to write because that's the better time to write because it's silent.
I must say that my laziness got lessen when I became a mother. I am lazy yes but because of my son and my responsibility as a mother I managed to lessen it little by little and I am happy with it.
My laziness also lessen when my mother leave the house a couple of months ago and I have no choice but to do all the stuff here and prove to myself that kaya ko naman pala.
