In the media it is often used to refer to a government’s lack of attention to the needs of the people it leads. If a government does not try to work for the maintenance of a certain street, citizens can accuse it of committing an act of negligence. This type of behavior or attitude can even be fatal (for example, if a serious accident occurs on that road).

Laziness: an increasingly common pathology

The concept is often used in the field of mental health to refer to a pathological picture related to depression. People with laziness suffer from apathy towards their surroundings and are imbued with a vicious circle in which the less they do, the less they feel like doing. This type of mechanism usually blocks them completely, to the point that they want to put aside all their responsibilities. In some cases, this situation of sadness and constant disinterest can affect many levels of your life, not just the emotional part.

Laziness is a disease that can affect us all, some more seriously than others; In recent years, the problems related to the economic crisis and the accelerated pace of life include this lack of motivation for life and for everything that used to cause us energy and joy.

It is normal that at some point in our lives we feel that we do not want to continue with something, but if this is constantly repeated and spreads to reach all aspects of our life (work, technical, emotional) it is important that we give it the importance that it deserves and let us look for alternatives that help us get out of such a situation.

As with depression, apathy is a disease that must be diagnosed by a specialist; this means that not all people who feel listless have it. However, all those who suffer from constant disinterest in life and with everything around them undoubtedly suffer from some kind of emotional disorder that leads them to feel those emotions. Therefore, it is recommended that these people turn to a specialist who can help them detect what this discomfort is responding to and help them find the window to emerge and regain a taste for life.
