  • There is definitely a difference between a lazy day which everybody should be able to

  • enjoy and a lazy lifestyle. You know when we are talking laziness it's having the ability

  • to do something and not doing it. And the concern with laziness is that oftentimes the

  • things that people are lazy about they can't afford to be lazy about. Our society breeds

  • laziness because we really push ourselves to be accessible and available and on and

  • we were in this very competitive mindset and so I think that a lot of us are confused about

  • the difference between just being plain out exhausted with everything that we need to

  • do and just wanting to check out and actually being lazy. So what I've found when working

  • with clients who are lazy is that there is usually some kind of fear that motivates somebody

  • from taking action. And so when we get to the fear of what's causing that laziness oftentimes

  • we're able to overcome it. Let's say someone has a health condition and they can go to

  • the doctor but they don't go to the doctor; they have health insurance and they have a

  • transportation and they have a license or they have a loved one who is willing to drive

  • them. And instead of making the appointment and following through with the appointment

  • they choose to sit at home and watch reality television all day. Now on the surface we

  • can look at that and say well that's really lazy behavior and it's true. But underneath

  • it what I've found is that there is a fear that going to the doctor could result in a

  • diagnosis or going to the doctor could result in a lifestyle change that they are not ready

  • for. So I look at laziness as more of an avoidance than anything else. I find it to be very unproductive

  • and anytime I am working with a client who is lazy which is rare because a lazy client

  • is typically not motivated to reach out to a coach to get help, we look for the underlying

  • cause.
