1. Repair Your Exterior
The quickest way to get your shit together is to create the illusion that your shit is together. If your hair is a nest of dead-ends, your eyebrows are reminiscent of a rare snow Yeti and your favourite pair of shoes reek of vodka, get a haircut, fix your eyebrows, throw out the shoes. Paying attention to little details such as the state of your nails is an easy way to appear polished and together.
2. Drink Red Wine
Studies show that drinking a single glass of red wine is equivalent to completing one hour of cardio in the gym. This is either a filthy lie or a personalized gift from the universe (personally, I choose to believe). If you hate wine, the next best thing is tequila and soda water–it’s low calorie and has less sugar than most alcohols.
3. Set Your Alarm 15 Minutes Early
If you’re always late and show up to work looking like Pete Doherty, it’s time for change. Sacrificing a mere 15 minutes of sleep can give you the edge you need to put your eyeliner on straight and unwrap a damn granola bar.
4. Hide Your Vegetables
Chances are, you’re not a huge fan of salads or bowls of raw beetroot. However, there are several ways to disguise antioxidant-packed veggies as snacks you actually want to eat. Try making kale chips (they taste like regular chips!) or a green smoothie with cucumber, broccoli and pineapple. You won’t taste a thing and your booze-ravaged organs will thank you!
5. Minimize Your Hangovers
We’ve all had mornings where we wake up naked in the bathtub with a club stamp smeared across our face and chip crumbs tucked into our neck folds. When you’re lazy, recovering from this condition can be particularly difficult. To prevent the above from happening, take a shot of pickle juice before you start drinking. It’s an old wives trick that helps your body store electrolytes, preventing headaches and dehydration.
6. Multi-task Whenever Possible
When you go on your lunch break, take a walk around the neighbourhood park while you eat, simultaneously consuming and burning calories.
7. Buy An Impressive-Looking Planner
Something leather and embossed should do the trick. Sit down and write out all your important dates and reminders so you don’t have to keep writing out and losing hundreds of sticky notes.
8. Get An IUD
It’s a must for any lazy girl who struggles to remember to take their pill at the same time every day. Oh, and most IUDs are more effective than the pill!
9. Just Dance
Going to the gym simply isn’t going to happen, it takes too much discipline. Dancing alone in your room, however, requires no travel, no membership and it’s just as good for your heart-health as other forms of cardio. Pick your favorite banger and commence.
10. Start A Vitamin Regimen
When you can’t find the time or the energy to worry about minerals & such, vitamins are the perfect solution. In fact, a lack of iron or B12 might be the reason you feel tired and run-down all the time. Extra benefits include better skin, nails and hair!
