We all have those days where we want to be lazy but then it is sometimes frowned upon in society to be lazy and do nothing. Not anymore! According to Time Magazine, being lazy can actually be good for you by allowing you to be more creative. When I say be lazy, I mean really unplug from everything, including social media, technology, and society and just relax. This allows you to be unfocused and actually more creative without the pressures of society. This is the time when your best ideas come and you find solutions to problems.

Call it a mental health day, personal day or whatever you want, but we all just need some time to be lazy creatures and refresh. So, the next time you are feeling lazy and need a personal day, show your boss this defense and hopefully he will let you off of work for the day!
