Laziness is the lack of desire to perform work or expend effort. What behavior is considered laziness varies according to personal and societal standards.

An example of laziness would be a perfectly healthy person living at home with ones parents until the age of thirty years without the desire to get a job or find a career in ones life being in all ways dependent on ones parents for support.

Laziness is considered by some Christians to be one of the seven deadly sins, though it is called sloth on the list.

Feelings of laziness may be a symptom of clinical depression or listlessness.
