It’s Friday, so Just Relax™

“Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.”

-Jules Renard


There are lots of activities that scientists recommend doing before you’re hit by an urgent need. For example, drinking water before you feel thirsty; because once you feel thirsty you’re already dehydrated. Eating before you’re famished is another recommendation. If you eat when you’re getting peckish you’re less likely to overeat and feel stuffed and lethargic. Laziness, on the other hand, is vilified. Maybe we need to look at laziness from another perspective though. Maybe feeling lazy is your body telegraphing your need to take a break before you’ve even acknowledged it to yourself. Maybe there’s an okay type of laziness we should honor before we’re completely run down from activity. So listen to your laziness: it might be giving you clues about what your body and mind need to keep in optimal condition.

Time to relax

Enjoy your weekend 🙂
