You will need

Step 1 Make a list Acknowledge the detrimental effects of your laziness. Make a list to motivate you of ways your life would improve if you were more active.
Step 2 Get organized Get organized by establishing a strict schedule for yourself. Set your alarm.
Step 3 Break the habit Break your addiction to procrastination by avoiding the couch and television – or whatever your go-to distraction is – so that you remain upright and conscious.
Step 4 Set goals Set goals, replacing phrases like ‘should,’ ‘might,’ or ‘have to’ with the word ‘will.’ You will psycho-linguistically program yourself to succeed, as research shows goal-oriented people do.
Change your diet to help build discipline.
Step 5 Exercise regularly Exercise regularly. Endorphins change the chemical balance of the brain and generate a positive attitude. Low activity causes low energy.
Step 6 Ask friends for help Lower stress and eliminate unwitting enablers by informing friends of your plans. Their support will keep you accountable.
Don’t confuse laziness with an inability to deal with stress.
Step 7 Help others Help someone else. Giving to others can get you engaged with the rest of humanity without obsessing about your problems
