7 Tips to Having a Lazy Day

Google Image Search

It’s summer.  Perfect time for some resting when you can get it.  At least it is if you work in a school and need to fend off burn out.  So, what are some good tips for being lazy?

  1. Stay in your pajamas.  They’re comfy and dull the urge to leave the house.  If you really need a shower then take one and then change into a second pair of pajamas.  That way your sleeping set gets some time to air out.
  2. Do not dive right into a project as soon as you wake up.  That is the opposite of lazy!  If you want to get some work done then do it slowly and throw away any care about making real progress.
  3. Hydrate.  This doesn’t really help with the laziness, but it’s good to do if it’s a hot summer day.
  4. If somebody is calling or texting you to do stuff, ignore them.  Don’t let somebody with ambition get you out of your laziness.  You earned this day to drape yourself across a couch like a collection of throw pillows.  In case these active people show up at the house, stay away from the windows and lock your doors.
  5. Keep your food close to where you plant yourself.  Same goes for remotes, books, and anything else you think you will need.  Nothing is necessary if your laziness involves sleeping all day.
  6. As long as the house isn’t on fire or smells like a latrine, you have tomorrow to do things.  Increase your sense of urgency to the point where you need a real disaster to get moving on this day.
  7. Do NOT write a list about being lazy . . . Oops.

    You’ve earned the break!!
    I keep thinking of Homer Simpson’s reaching broom in one of the episodes. If you’re going to be lazy, you’ll need one of those.


  3. Terrific post, Charles. Lots of fun.


  4. Sounds wonderful to me.
