HOROSCOPE SIGNS: How To Stop Being Lazy

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You’re used to being busy all the time. You’re a firm believer that hard work pays off, so you always try to keep yourself busy. But when you do this over and over, every single day, it can start to get boring. And when you get bored, you get lazy, which means you stop staying busy. The best way for you to stop being lazy is to mix up your routine. Your old routine worked pretty well, but now try a new routine that keeps you just as busy and keeps you on your toes.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Your worst habit is easily how lazy you can get. Once you get on your phone, or you lay down on the couch “just for a minute,” all of the motivation you once had is totally gone. The easiest way for you to overcome laziness is in baby steps. Do something you can complete in a minutes or two. Get those out of the way, take a break and then get back to work. Don’t pressure yourself to get it all done at once.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

For you, there’s just something so boring about having a to-do list, when you could just spend your time doing something fun. You live for fun, but when you have to be responsible, you sometimes shut down. So the best way for you to get over being lazy is to make the things you have to do, just as fun as the things you want to do. You’re amazing at making any boring situation fun, so, turn it into a game, put some music on while working, or reward yourself for getting things done.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

When you get behind on the things you need to do, when laziness strikes, you get overwhelmed. Not only that, but once you start feeling lazy, it’s really hard for you to be active again. The best way for you to stop being lazy is to stop yourself from becoming overwhelmed early on. Let yourself take a couple of breaks when you’re working hard. It'll keep you motivated and it’ll help you focus better on the things you need to do.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

You are no stranger to staying motivated. As a matter of fact you’re probably one of the few signs that rarely falls victim to laziness. But when laziness strikes, you need to figure out the quickest way to finding your motivation again. Rather than convince yourself that it’s easier to be lazy forever, try prioritizing your tasks. It might suck at first, but once you get the worst tasks out of the way, you can relax and know that the hardest part is over.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

One of the worst feelings for you, is laziness. You’re really good at staying organized, motivated, and on top of things. The best way for you to stop being lazy is to do exactly what you do when you’re feeling motivated. Make a schedule to get things done on time, set reminders and notes on your phone, and even color-code your planner – whatever helps you stay organized! You know how to get back on track.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Laziness can be really dangerous for you. You’re the kind of sign that gets sucked into distractions that sometimes make you procrastinate things for weeks. You can get stuck scrolling on Instagram for hours and watching an entire season of a TV show in one day. If you want to stop being lazy, you need to cut off your distractions completely. Taking breaks or rewarding yourself with another episode doesn’t work for Libras. Put your phone in another room and ask friends to help you stay on track.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Sometimes, you just can’t get your brain to want to do anything – and that’s okay! For you to prevent laziness, you have to give in to distractions. I know that sounds weird but that might actually help you out. For Scorpios, nothing good ever comes when forcing yourself to do something. Just because you’re feeling lazy doesn’t mean you’re a bad person. Letting yourself be lazy will clear your head and sometimes, if you spend enough time doing nothing, you’ll want to do something productive. Think of it like reverse psychology.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You always do better in situations where your friends are involved. So if your are suffering laziness, recruit your friends to help you find your motivation again. You might be an independent person in general, but you also value your friends a lot. It’s a good idea to team up with people who will give you the kick start you need to succeed, rather than isolate yourself and hope your laziness goes away eventually.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You don’t really get overwhelmed, but when you do, it can really take the wind out of your sails. You’re also one of those signs that’s constantly starting new projects so it’s always a shock when you start to feel lazy. If you want to prevent laziness, you need to clear your mind of everything that’s stressing you out right now. You probably have a lot on your plate, so, focus on what you’re good at, get the easy things out of the way first and you’ll have enough motivation to tackle the hard stuff.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

There are some times when you feel lazy, but you’re very capable to snap out of it and get back to what you need to do. Then, there are other times when your laziness takes over. The best way for you to stop being lazy, is to create small goals and make a plan to get things done. Scaling back the things that stress you out into smaller, more manageable pieces can work for all areas of your life.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

It’s not that you like being lazy, it’s just that you love being comfortable. The thing is, you’re comfortable making excuses, but then you have a meltdown because you knew you should’ve gotten things done. Now, if you want to stop being lazy, you have to first stop making excuses and stop putting so much pressure on yourself. cWhen you have a long to-do list and no motivation, everything else in your life, can feel like it’s closing in. Take some time to declutter and eliminate any distractions.
