First we need to learn about procrastination and laziness which may be a sign of tiredness or fatigue.

Difference between laziness and procrastination?

There is a very little difference between these two conditions. For procrastination, you honestly intend to do the work. Not caring about the work in the first place, that’s laziness. Another similar term is lethargy.

Lethargy is a condition that makes a person feel sluggish, drowsy and tired. In such a state, a person feels least interested in his surroundings, in inactive, displays low energy level and carries an attitude of indifference..

Laziness or procrastination is not the bad thing but when it takes over, diminishes your productivity and stops your from enjoying life to it’s fullest, then it’s almost like paralysis. It’s not always too late to limit the affects of both. It takes some initiative though, to read topics that can motivate a person to walk away from being someone useless to someone productive.                                                                

Home/herbal Remedies for Lethargy Treatment:

  • Drinking tea made from basil leaves can naturally treat laziness.
  • Taking grape and lemon juices in equal quantities on regular basis can be beneficial.
  • Herbs like winter cherry and Indian gooseberry are very effective home remedies for treating laziness.
  • Ayurveda claims that massage of the head using an oil made up of age old herbs is also a time tested cure for laziness.

Herbal supplements to decrease procrastination, laziness or lethargy:

Seaweed: Seaweeds of all kinds help restore energy by nourishing nervous, immune, and hormonal systems. Make it a habit to eat seaweed as a green vegetable at least once a week. Try kelp in your oatmeal, wakame in your beans, kombu in your soups, hijiki salads, toasted dulse, sea palm fronds, and deep-fried nori!

Roots: Counter that tired-every-day feeling: get down and get grounded energy from roots. Try a tincture of ginseng, siberian ginseng, yellow dock, or dandelion roots. A dose is 10-20 drops of any one root, taken with meals.

Tired Blood?: You may need more iron: eat a spoonful of molasses or try a dropperful of yellow dock tincture several times a day.

Green is the Color of Plant Energy: The plants with the deepest green give you the most energy. A daily cup of nettle infusion increases energy without wiring your nerves. Nettle strengthens the adrenals, allowing you to tolerate more stress with less harm. And it nourishes your immune system, too.        

To make it :

  •  Put one ounce of dried nettle leaf in a quart jar.
  •  Fill to the top with boiling water.
  •  Cap tightly and steep at least four hours (overnight is fine).
  •  Strain and drink.
  •  Refrigerate the remainder and consume within 36 hours.

(Leftovers may be used as a hair rinse or fertilizer for your houseplants.) I drink several quarts of nettle infusion every week. It helps me have the energy to teach all day and write for hours each evening.

Oatstraw

Oatstraw infusion builds deep energy for the next day. Oatstraw nourishes the nerves, easing anxiety and improving our ability to live with uncertainty. Make it like the nettle infusion, using a full ounce of oatstraw to a quart of boiling water. OK to drink it hot or cold, with honey or miso, or any other addition (juice, coffee, whiskey) you desire. Remember to refrigerate the infusion after it has brewed 4-8 hours, even if you don't get a chance to strain the plant material out.

For tired women:

Warming herbs such as ginger and cinnamon increase energy (but may increase hot flashes, too). Make a tea with 1 cup/250 ml boiling water and 1/2-1 teaspoon (1-2 grams) of the powder of any one of these.

Very tired women need more fuel, that is, more fat, in their diets, and best if the fats are also natural sources of vitamin E: avocados, peanut butter, sunflower seeds, tahini, and olive oil are good food sources. Herbs rich in vitamin E include nettle, seaweeds, dandelion, and watercress.

B vitamins build energy. Find them in whole grains, organ meats, sweet potatoes, avocados, egg yolks, fish, and whey. Both oatstraw and nettle infusions are good sources of B vitamins, as are red clover blossom infusion, peppermint leaves, and fenugreek seeds.

Low levels of potassium, iron, and iodine contribute to fatigue. Celery, cabbage, seaweeds, nettle infusion, and red clover infusion are excellent sources of potassium. Molasses, chocolate, seaweeds, nettle infusion, and dandelion leaves are all superb sources of iron. For iodine, seaweed shines, but sea salt, mushrooms, and greens grown in gardens fertilized with seaweed also supply significant amounts.

What to avoid?

"Energy-producing" foods/drugs/herbal supplements such as coffee, guarana, caffeinated drinks, and excessive amounts of black tea or chocolate will create greater fatigue in the future.

I love herbs Amera. Thank you and best wishes and good health to you and love ones this 2011 and plus years.

I've never suffered from either one of these problems but I know plenty of people who could benefit from this treatment. Good Job.

Quite interesting and useful too.

Voted and stumbled - great job.

Yes, interesting and useful

Wow, this is really good to know. Good article --but are you serious??? Procrastinators need to simply reflect on the fact that they live in the wealthy western world, where they can procrastinate without starving their families to death! That should provide some motivation.

Hummm . . . I don't see how this could motivate procrastinators??

Interesting discussion. I can understand that proper nutrition can lead to higher energy levels (for which I have bookmarked this article); however, procrastination and laziness stem from more complex problems than simple lack of energy.

Yes, the procrastinators are not going to get to reading this article and the lazy peope wil never get their finger litfed to actually get to this page so even though the information is good the chances of it being seen or acted on by those in need will go by the wayside.

I couldn't agree more, Sharla. To relate procrastination and laziness to a dietary deficiency is too strange--and biologically naive.

Thanks for all of your valuable comments but I enjoyed Peggy's comments "which is a reality beside its humorous side"

While I'd agree that herbs won't cure procrastination, I can see how laziness could be a by-product of lack of energy, which could come from a nutrient-poor diet. Very interesting article, with great information on herbs and nutrition.
