15 Laziest States in the Country

These are the 15 laziest states around. They’re places where every day feels like a Monday. You know what we’re talking about. We’ve all had those weeks where you even struggle to get up on a Friday. We’ve had days where we come back from lunch and our brains just can’t seem to focus on anything at all. That’s not a bad thing if you work to make sure you don’t stay in that rut. The people of these 15 states got into a rut and haven’t seemed to come out of it yet.

Sure, we understand that not everybody in these states is lazy, but according to a study by WalletHub, these states do have higher numbers of people who work less, aren’t engaged at work, or are spending too much time doing nothing at all. For example, look at Oregon. When it comes to the problem of laziness in the workplace, they’re ranked the worst. In general, it seems like the rainy days are getting to them. In Kentucky, you’ll find that most people don’t volunteer. Ever. They aren’t giving up their time no matter what you say or do. If you look at Nevada, you’ll see that they rank poorly when it comes to their leisure time. We’re thinking Vegas’s flashing lights might be distracting too many people.

Now look, we understand not everybody in these states is a couch potato. If you live, there, we aren’t calling you out! We’re just saying your neighbor is probably not going anywhere. So, if you want to know which states have the laziest people around, read on!
