Whether you’re an experienced business owner or just starting out, it’s likely you engage in bad habits each work day that reduce your productivity and diminish your happiness. If you want to work more efficiently and feel more motivated, examine your daily routines to figure out which habits are dragging you down.
Many bad habits arise as ways to deal with stress or boredom, so the key to combating them is to address the underlying problems. If you struggle with checking your email all day to make sure you’re on top of all your assignments, consider referring to a daily to-do list instead.
This strategy can be applied from everything to skipping breakfast to never taking a day off. However, don’t feel obligated to stop all your bad habits at once. Because it takes time and consistency to reduce your bad habits, it’s best to take on a few at once so you’re not overwhelmed.
It’s important to make an effort to reduce your bad habits, because when you increase your motivation and productivity at work you will come happier and more energized. The benefits of reduced stress can also positively impact your health overall.
