Celebrate National Lazy Day With This Chill Playlist


Finally, a day for all of us who want nothing more than to take mid-day naps. Though it might’ve taken longer for there to be a National Lazy Day—probably because we were just too lazy to make one—it’s finally here.

Our active companions shun us for our sloth-like behaviour, but little do they know it’s actually good for our health. Multiple studies have shown that taking naps lowers your blood pressure, day dreaming leads to creativity and downtime is necessary for brain health.

If that isn’t enough to convince you to take some well-needed time off, even Bill Gates believes laziness can be constructive: “I choose a lazy person to do a hard job. Because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it.” If one of the richest men in the world understands this, we should never be ashamed of our sluggish behaviour again.

Check out these awesome tracks that celebrate our calming lifestyle. Unless you’re too lazy to. We understand.

1. “The Lazy Song” – Bruno Mars

Lyrics that relate to us: Today I don’t feel like doing anything/ I just wanna lay in my bed
You knew this track was going to be on the list—it’s the unofficial anthem for all the lazy folks out there because only we understand the value of doing nothing.

2. “Because I Got High” – Afroman

Lyrics that relate to us: My room is still messed up and I know why
You don’t have to relax with Afroman’s methods to relate to this “too lazy to do everyday things” song.

3. “I Wanna Be Sedated” – The Ramones

Lyrics that relate to us: Just get me to the airport put me on a plane/ Hurry hurry hurry before I go insane
There is nothing a lazy person loves more than a vacation that only requires them to relish in their idleness. Except for the planning aspect. That’s too much work.

4. “Pompeii” – Bastille

Lyrics that relate to us: I was left to my own devices / Many days fell away with nothing to show
If you close your eyes, doesn’t it almost feel like you did more today than watch TV?

5. “Sitting Doing Nothing” – Elton John

Lyrics that relate to us: People tell me I’m just lazy/ Whether or not it’s true I don’t know
Are we lazy or just masters of relaxation?

6. “I’m Only Sleeping” – The Beatles

Lyrics that relate to us: Please, don’t spoil my day, I’m miles away/ And after all I’m only sleeping
There is nothing us professional sloths hate more than someone waking us up before our alarm. That’s why we set an alarm 30 minutes before we actually have to get up.

7. “Lazy Days” – Enya

Lyrics that relate to us: Lazy old day/ Rolling away/ Dreaming the day away
Even if we find a way to leave our bed, odds are we’re still day dreaming about going back to it.
