Is it difficult for you to get out of bed in the morning or at any time for that matter? Do you find yourself putting several alarms in order to finally get up and stop being lazy? Do you think it is completely your fault and that no one else but you are to be blamed when it comes to inactiveness? Well, you might be right in saying that but what if someone tells you that it certainly not completely your fault and that it’s in your genes, and not metaphorically but quite literally.

You may use this phrase that it’s in your genes as a taunt while making a person realize how lazy they are but our community of scientists have been working on it and have been successful in discovering a number of genes that can help in making sense for all the laziness that you go through.

A rigorous process was implemented to conduct an experiment by the researchers at Oxford University which included more than 90,000 people to have the best results. The research was monitored and evaluated through wrist activity monitors whom the participants wore after giving their sample which helped the scientists to compare and contrast both of them in order to prove the set hypothesis.

The research proved to be quite helpful in understanding the nature of genes and how it is connected to the inactiveness or lazy behavior of humans. However, it is no ways implies that the laziness that you go through is complete because you have it in your gene and that you cannot possibly do anything about it. The motive behind studying the connection between human genes and laziness was only to be able to have a better understanding of the patterns that you follow the whole day and how one can learn from them.

This research also proved to be significant for further references and to be used as the basis for other hypotheses which can be proved wrong, such as the connection between laziness and obesity and which one is dependent on whom? The reason why this research can be the basis is the sample size used for the research which increases its authenticity.
