What is the difference between depression and laziness …

  • The main difference being while depression is a body dis -order, Laziness is a behavior dis order.

    {What is depression?

    • Feeling sad or having a depressed mood
    • Loss of interest or pleasure in activities once enjoyed
    • Changes in appetite — weight loss or gain unrelated to dieting
    • Trouble sleeping or sleeping too much
    • Loss of energy or increased fatigue
    • Increase in purposeless physical activity (e.g., hand-wringing or pacing) or slowed movements and speech (actions observable by others)
    • Feeling worthless or guilty
    • Difficulty thinking, concentrating or making decisions
    • Thoughts of death or suicide

    Symptoms must last at least two weeks for a diagnosis of depression.

    Also, medical conditions (e.g., thyroid problems, a brain tumor or vitamin deficiency) can mimic symptoms of depression so it is important to rule out general medical causes.

    Depression affects an estimated one in 15 adults (6.7%) in any given year. And one in six people (16.6%) will experience depression at some time in their life. Depression can strike at any time, but on average, first appears during the late teens to mid-20s. Women are more likely than men to experience depression. Some studies show that one-third of women will experience a major depressive episode in their lifetime.

    Depression is different from sadness and grief.

    The death of a loved one, loss of a job or the ending of a relationship are difficult experiences for a person to endure. It is normal for feelings of sadness or grief to develop in response to such situations. Those experiencing loss often might describe themselves as being “depressed.”

    But being sad is not the same as having depression. The grieving process is natural and unique to each individual and shares some of the same features of depression. Both grief and depression may involve intense sadness and withdrawal from usual activities. They are also different in important ways.

    • In grief, painful feelings come in waves, often intermixed with positive memories of the deceased. In major depression, mood and/or interest (pleasure) are decreased for most of two weeks.
    • In grief, self-esteem is usually maintained. In major depression, feelings of worthlessness and self-loathing are common.
    • For some people, the death of a loved one can bring on major depression. Losing a job or being a victim of a physical assault or a major disaster can lead to depression for some people. When grief and depression co-exist, the grief is more severe and lasts longer than grief without depression. Despite some overlap between grief and depression, they are different. Distinguishing between them can help people get the help, support or treatment they need.

    Risk factors for depression

    depression can affect anyone—even a person who appears to live in relatively ideal circumstances.

    Several factors can play a role in depression:

    • Biochemistry: Differences in certain chemicals in the brain may contribute to symptoms of depression.
    • Genetics: Depression can run in families. For example, if one identical twin has depression, the other has a 70 percent chance of having the illness sometime in life.
    • Personality: People with low self-esteem, who are easily overwhelmed by stress, or who are generally pessimistic appear to be more likely to experience depression.
    • Environmental factors: Continuous exposure to violence, neglect, abuse or poverty may make some people more vulnerable to depression.

    When these symptoms are noticed by parents in their sons or daughters, they should consult Psychiatrist immediately}

    What is laziness?

    {Laziness is an unwillingness to spend energy. It is an un willingness to do a task that we perceive to be difficult or uncomfortable. You’ve probably heard thousands of times that humans are by nature lazy and that’s true.

    Who would like to work hard to achieve goals when he can just lie down and relax? It almost seems like humans are very unlikely to get motivated to do anything unless and until they think it affects their survival- directly or indirectly.

    For thousands of years, human behavior has been primarily governed by instant rewards and gratification. Our focus as a human race has been- for a very long time- on immediate returns. Our ancestors had to ensure their survival by constantly searching for food and warding off predators.

    So they focused on actions that gave them immediate results- here and now. There was hardly any time for long-term planning.

    Fast forward to the present century…

    Today for a significant part of the human population, survival is ensured rather easily. We have a lot of time to be lazy and do nothing- and our survival won’t be threatened at all. You’ll hardly find lazy people in tribes and other native populations whose lifestyle is almost similar to primitive humans with a primary focus on survival.

    That being said, I’m very much in favor of the idea that laziness only appeared on the scene of human behavior with technological advancements that not only made survival much easier but allowed us to sort of ‘plan’ for the distant future.

    After all, you can’t plan for the future when a grizzly bear is chasing you for your life or when you are in constant search for food.Because we have evolved with a focus on immediate rewards, any behavior that is not instantly rewarding is perceived to be unfruitful. That’s why laziness is so prevalent in today’s society and seems to have a positive correlation with the advancements in technology.

    In order to overcome laziness we first need to ensure that our mind is not deceiving us in any way whatsoever. As far as long-term goals are concerned, if you don’t have enough willpower, you can stick to them more successfully if you use your evolutionary programming for your own benefit instead of fighting it.

    This may include making the long-term goal appear nearer and instant by visualization or by letting your reward-hungry brain notice the small, incremental progress that you make on the path of accomplishing your long-term goal. Whatever you do, the most important thing is to believe in yourself and make sure the goal is important enough for you to pursue.

    That would be enough motivation to keep laziness at bay}.
