Laziness. Industriousness training

The sin of laziness

In Christianity, sloth or laziness is one of the seven mortal sins. Laziness is the unwillingness to do something that requires willpower. Laziness can be the cause of many other sins. It tends to become stronger if you do not fight it. It is the victory of the corporeal over the spiritual.

Industriousness training

Just as laziness is a sin, industriousness is the opposite virtue. Industriousness consists of the ability to enjoy physical or intellectual labour. Industriousness is the love of work as a creative process that brings pleasure to a person. You can learn industriousness in the courses with our psychological centre. Enjoying your work is a very important skill for a spiritual person.

Psychological assistance in spiritual psychology

In practical behavioral psychology, the manifestation of laziness is referred to as a behavioral disorder. If you complete the industriousness training, you will achieve the ability to perform necessary work without stress and with pleasure. If you feel that your willpower to control your laziness is not strong enough, you can undergo benevolence training from our psychological centre in addition to your spiritual practice.

Psychological services and religion

There have been many cases of healing serious diseases in believers through prayer and spiritual practices. However, at the same time, believers periodically seek medical advice, and with behavioural psychology being more than a hundred years old, the level of its effectiveness in psychological requests is comparable to the effectiveness of medical methods. Given that in psychology many topics echo religious requests, the professional help of a psychologist can provide significant support in the religious development of a person.

Why is behavioural psychology better than others?

Behavioural psychology appeared as an alternative to the well-known psychological modalities. There are many psychological modalities founded on the principles of introspection (personality theory, psychoanalysis, etc.). Unfortunately, introspection does not meet the criteria of the scientific method. In contrast, behavioural psychology arose based on practical scientific behavioural discoveries, so its effectiveness is more acute. This is the only psychological modality in which the specialist is obliged to guarantee the result.

Online school. Online learning

The faith coaching is held remotely, online, so no matter where you live, you can also access it. You just need a smartphone or computer and internet access. You will not have to travel to the centre, just connect to the website and undergo training at home in your favorite chair or sofa.
