Of Me n My Laziness.
Lazy is defined as, "not eager or willing to work or busy oneself; slow and sluggish."
I was too lazy to modify the layout of my own blog. Jiggs helped me. Ha Ha, Hats of to her skills and my persuasion powers.
So when it came to write a post for her blog I zeroed in on "Laziness". Its perfect. Keeps with the light mood of this blog. Defines
a common thing between her and me. And yeah I wont be able to write long like I usually write cause m too lazy too. So the post length on her blog will be maintained too. Wah Taj!! kya baat hai....
Many people think because of being from a Army backgound and military baording on top of that, laziness is not one of my virtues. But it is. And fortunately so. Let me tell you why.
Laziness can be a great tool when applied in the right way. I’ve learned to apply it in small doses throughout the day. A five minute lazy break is sometimes necessary for me to get through a rough moment. Maybe it’s a slow walk to the stationary store ins college for a fresh pack of sticky notes that I don’t really need. Other days it’s going to the bathroom, locking the door and doing a slow dance. Yeah I am still quite shy to dance in front of my roomate!! I try to take “lazy breaks” a few times throughout the day, so I can stop to assess how I really feel. Self assesment is quite a necessity but in small does only. Just like laziness.
The feeling of being lazy for a few minutes and not thinking about work eases the tension in my muscles and thoughts. When the tension is released, I’m able to refocus my energy to getting the job done. And as I always seem to be surrounded by a mountain of work to complete (read overdue journals) , I guess i need every bit of that enery and good mood.
But then again, I have found that taking a lazy break is easy, but giving myself permission to do it and then getting back to my task is difficult. It takes intelligence to apply the right amount of laziness. Pata nahi chalta when those 5 min walks become long and I end up bunking the whole day. Or when that small jam session in the bathroom becomes the audition for the next Boogie Woogie competetion only to be rudely interrupted by the angry banging on the door by my roomate. Though sumtimes I flow with the music of door banging and the dance extends still longer. ;-)
Every life needs a balance between action and inaction, otherwise our minds and joints will break down. Try applying a little laziness to your day; use it for five minutes and then let it slingshot your thoughts back into action.
