Cold Weather ≠ Laziness

Living in Reno, NV let me realize that it is hard to get up everyday full with energy especially during the winter time. This cold weather really makes people feel lazier than summer time. Sometimes I am wondering maybe it is just an excuse for us waking up late and be late at our work. Or is it? The correct answer by the scientists doesn’t matter at all because we can control how we acted. I believe if we decide when we want to get up from bed, we definitely can do it. We all have laziness in our thoughts, but we also can differentiate what is more important for us. We should stop blaming on any external factor that affects our behaviors because we can have better action.

We want to feel energetic every morning to be able to go to work full with happiness. So how we feel when we open our eyes the first thing in the morning is really important. We need to motivate ourselves to have the power to feel happy every morning. Sleep early every night is a good idea, but we will still feel lazy sometime. Warm milk before going to bed every night will help us sleep deeply, but the laziness is still exist. We need to tell ourselves how important we get up early to feel good about whole day.

Here are four tips that we can motivate ourselves:

  1. Tell ourselves that everyday is a beautiful day, which happy mood will bring good things happened to us
  2. Laziness will cause rush, and we don’t want to drive dangerously to work or rush in the beginning of our daily life
  3. More time to enjoy our surroundings, and we might surprise ourselves by observing something we never notice
  4. Show the effort in work place full of energy, and we will feel less pressure in work
