How drugs can help lasy people exercise

London: Some psychoactive drugs dubbed as "doping for lasy people" can encourage sedentary people to exercise, experts suggest.
Physical exertions along with excuses like lack of time are some of the main perceived barriers to exercise. This is not surprising because humans are evolved to be "lasy".
The perception of effort is one of the main reasons why most people choose sedentary activities for their leisure time. Compared to watching television, even moderate-intensity physical activities like walking require considerable effort.
Similarly, a reduction in perception of effort would be very helpful to the many people who find exercise difficult as they are overweight and exercise after work in a state of mental fatigue. Physical inactivity is responsible for twice as many deaths as obesity and a psycho-pharmacological treatment for physical inactivity can be considered seriously.
