Re: Why do I feel so lazy??

I've definitely had times where I've felt like that. Try to break out of the vicious cycle and force yourself to get outside. I tend to be my own worst enemy whenever I overthink how much work something is going to be. For example, if I keep thinking about what a hassle it would be to get the kids dressed and get them all to the park, I won't do it. If I just say, "let's go to the park" and set things in motion to get it done, I will feel so much better at the end of the day that I did something.

If you are tired, you can read stories to your kids on the couch -- if it's truly a physical tiredness. Kids LOVE being read to, and it's a way for you to bond with your kids and feel good as a parent without having to exert too much physical energy.
