30 Day Cowlean Challenge, Day Twenty: The Importance of Being Lazy

Hi guys,

Weigh-in: 206.8 lbs
Calories: 3600

Today’s post is going to be a short one, because I practice what I preach ;)

I want to outline three reasons why laziness is actually a positive character trait in certain amounts.

1- It’s More Efficient

If you’re always working and enjoy being consistently on-the-go, then you’re not going to want to find the most efficient way to do something. Notice I say efficient, rather than quickest. The aim is to find the best way to do something.

2- Rest and Recovery

Again, if you’re constantly on-the-go you won’t get time to rest. You have to balance catabolism and anabolism. This is quite clear for someone who lifts weights and wants to build muscle, they need good sleep and rest days for the growth to happen. Similarly for someone who’s in a caloric deficit for a long time and doesn’t take a reset every now and then will do hormonal damage.

3- Evaluation

Being lazy every now and then gives you a chance to take time out, be introspective, and evaluate your progress. Look how far you’ve come and congratulate yourself in whatever way you see fit. You can also look at where you want to improve and see what you’re going to change.

Looking at how I’ve done so far, and with the last third rolling around: I’m very happy with the daily blogs, and I’ve surprised myself with the quality considering I write them very quickly. On the weight side, I’m going to rein in the calories to burn off some more fat.

Until tomorrow,
Cowlean
