Lazy and depressed

I'm a 14 year old guy. Recently I've felt somewhat depressed and very lazy. I don't know why, but I just wanna play around and do nothing productive. I'm so lazy that I don't even want to have basic hygiene like washing my face, brushing my teeth, or taking showers. I have to force myself to have hygiene and do something productive. I also just feel really sad. Is it just my young age that makes me so lazy? My sadness? I was always a lazy guy, but now I'm especially lazy, because at least before I was productive and took care of myself. Now, not so much.

Lethargy is a symptom of depression. Just feeling like doing nothing, enjoying nothing, no motivation or focus.  Looks like lazy but is actually a symptom of depression.  Have you talked to your parents about this?
