Can Meditation cure my laziness?

I am extremely lazy and a total loser in life. I started meditation (zen) and I was wondering if I Zen Meditation or meditation in genral will help me to focus on my computer programming and succeed?

I am 48 and have been that way most of my life.

  • Yes. Meditation is a heck of a lot harder than it looks. Sitting around doing nothing is one of the most difficult things to do when you realize how intently our brains are always bouncing around in different directions. Accomplishing this will both help you build confidence by learning that you can achieve something, and the cognitive benefits from clearing the clutter out of your mind will allow your concentration to improve.

  • Hello,

    This contemplating your navel certainly can reduce stress but there comes a time where you still have to haul a ss and get things done be it study our hard physical work. Sometimes a poke in the butt with a bayonet, hard work at the gym and hitting the books is just as effective!

  • I doubt that meditation would cure you of laziness. However, a Marine Corp drill instructor could help you overcome it.

  • Right. Sitting on your butt will definitely help.

    What you need is for someone else to give you a very hard kick in the @ss. No offence intended. . . but it’s the only thing that works when you can’t motivate yourself.

  • Doubtful, but that’s just from me. I don’t know how it would affect another person. Try it anyways, it’s a good and relaxing experience
