National Productivity Day 2024: How to Overcome Laziness

India celebrates its National Productivity Day on February 12 marking the foundation of the National Productivity Council (NPC). On this day, let's boost our productivity with these tips to overcome laziness.

Find your motivation

Figuring out what motivates you is the first step to overcome laziness. It might be your career, physical health or mental health, but it is important to write it down and place it so that you can see it every day.

Avoiding Distractions

Distractions can negatively affect your performance and drain your cognitive resources. Identify your distractions and make a plan to avoid them.


It's good to know that someone who cares about you is rooting for your betterment. Ask a friend or family member to check on your progress once in a while because it is easy to slack off when you are alone.

Take necessary breaks

Our attention span is restricted to not more than 45 minutes. So, take breaks by the Pomodoro technique which is working for 25 minutes with a 5-minute break and after 4 intervals, taking a 15-minute break.

Set Realistic Goals

You will be exhausted before you even start this journey if you have unrealistic or overwhelming goals. Have a long-term goal and everyday short-term goals for consistent productivity.
