Actually feeling lazy is a feeling of comfort that the body needs. But the stigma of being lazy falls on those who find it difficult to start something positive that is routine. Every human being must have his own sense of laziness, but too lazy can also “kill” someone slowly. Here are 5 Tips & Tricks to deal with laziness and keep the spirit to do the 5 positive things below.
Motivation is a process that describes the intensity, direction, and persistence of an individual to achieve his goals. The three main elements in this definition are intensity, direction, and persistence.
Based on Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs theory, theory X and theory Y of Douglas McGregor as well as contemporary motivation theory, the meaning of motivation is the ‘reason’ that underlies an action performed by an individual. Someone said to have high motivation can be interpreted that the person has a very strong reason to achieve what he wants by doing his current job. In contrast to motivation in the sense that develops in society which is often equated with ‘spirit’, for example in the conversation “I want my child to be highly motivated”. This statement can be interpreted as a parent who wants his child to have a high enthusiasm for learning. So, it should be understood that there are differences in the use of the term motivation in society. There are those who interpret motivation as a reason, and there are also those who interpret motivation as the same as enthusiasm.
In the relationship between motivation and intensity, intensity is related to how hard a person tries, but high intensity does not result in satisfactory work performance unless the effort is associated with a direction that benefits the organization. On the other hand, the last element, persistence, is a measure of how long a person can sustain his or her efforts.

Lazy Diet? Make food the enemy of hunger, not your enemy
Obesity is a disease that haunts today’s young generation, especially the working pattern of sitting in front of a computer/laptop. Moreover, most of the food and drink consumed today is instant food and drink which contains high calories.
If we are already affected by obesity, there are many other possible diseases that arise. For those who are already obese, diet is the answer. But for some people dieting is a very difficult thing to do, even though various diet methods are very easy to find on the Internet, still most fail to do it than those who succeed.
To deal with lazy diets, it’s actually quite easy! Namely, by making food the enemy of hunger, not your enemy. When we are on a diet, we will definitely feel more hungry than when we are not dieting. Holding on to hunger is not good for the mind and mood, so when you feel hungry, eat!
As long as the food is still low in calories, your diet is still safe. Because the essence of a diet to lose weight is a calorie deficit, i.e. your calorie intake is lower than your calorie needs per day. When you have a calorie deficit, then burn to produce energy to be able to carry out daily activities, then fat will be burned.
Lazy to save? Start Counting
Wasteful is not always a bad thing, but too extravagant is also not good for someone, let alone going into debt for a lifestyle. There is nothing wrong with debt, as long as it is used wisely. There is nothing wrong with debt, what makes debt wrong is what the debt is used for. Nowadays it’s easy to get debt, namely by installments. If a car with a price of 150 million cannot be paid in cash, with the installment method, many people are able to own a car. Actually, if we carefully calculate before taking installments, we will definitely think twice about paying off the item. For example, paying in installments for a car for Rp. 150,000,000 with a DP of 20 million, and with installments of principal + 7% interest every month for 47 months, which is 2,960,000 every month. The total that came out was 139,000,000 + 20,000,000 which is Rp. 159,000,000, that’s how you calculate it, right?
The calculation is the count before the hidden cost is calculated. If you calculate hidden costs, the costs you spend within 4 years can be more than 250,000,000 if you also calculate the cost of service, gasoline, maintenance, taxes and depreciation each year. So the cost you spend every month must be greater than previously estimated. This kind of thing is dangerous for the financial health of anyone who does it.
