    make you lazy. For example, you find it hard to get off your seat to even go down for a snack, and you find it hard for academic studies aswell, revising for exams.

    Also i've noticed difficulty in being bothering to shave/brush my teeth/shower everyday.

    Is this normal?

    And what advice can you give to help me break this habit,and be more active .

    Id say no, given that most people who work in an office will do this and still lead normal lives.

    Have a decent diet, get exercise, take breaks when you need them and so forth....

    But people in offices are in a social environment with a boss looking over their shoulder. I think OP means in his house where there is absolutely no motivation to do anything.

    I can empathise with OP. I find i'm more awake/alert with 7 hours sleep than 10 hours. This would prove your theory correct i suppose.

    Your blood needs more circulation round the body, when you sit in one place a long time, blood doesn't travel around, "feeding your body" as effectivley as it should...

    This is why you feel tired after long journeys in cars/planes/trains, tired after sitting down in front of pc/cinema etc

    it's all about circulation my friend...

    You need better circulation!

    I usually find dancing round my room helps ALOT!

    Thanks freaking out. I'm not really a dancing type of person, but would walking around the house for 10 mins during break and drinking lots of water help me feel and be more active ?

    LOL that's fine dude, most blokes aren't the dancing type, im pretty weird like that! I suck at sports , but for some reason, im quite a good mover! lol :cool:

    yeah walking is just as good...the only reason why I suggested dansing is because I hate walking/running, but love music, so dancing is more of an effortless excercise for me!

    But walking is fine!

    However, walking around the block would do you better than just walking around the house, due to the fresh oxygen, but even walking around the house is better than nothing!

    Do interval sprints...outside or in your house.

    4-8 20-30 second full out sprints with 1-2 minutes rest between each sprint.

    You can do it standing sprint sin your room. Even by exercise bike etc..and do it

    Depends on the person, one of my best mates, he just plays RTS, RPG games like DotA all day, but he's far far from lazy, almost the opposite, if you tell him to do something he'll do it, we even say "No Nonsense!!" occasionally when he's doing something.

    so when you go home, do you find it hard to work, after sitting on the computer for hours. And does your concentration waver when doing tasks at home.

    Do you feel unmotivated at all, from the effects of sitting infront of computer all day?
