Our routines are usually pretty dull, aren’t they? We perform so many small actions every day that we almost never ask ourselves if there’s a right or wrong way to do them. We think it would be a great idea to pay more attention to these things to make small but positive changes in your life.
1. Using too much soap in the shower
Our skin becomes drier as we age, and soap, being an astringent, only makes it worse. Try to use the minimum amount of soap and only on necessary areas such as skin folds. The soapy water running down your body is more than enough to stay clean.
2. Working without planning your rest breaks
We all have our most productive work time. During those hours it seems easier to concentrate, to feel alert and inspired, and, as a consequence, achieve great results. The problem is that we don’t try to find our productive hours, and we don’t take advantage of them.
If you feel motivated and focused from 11 to 1, don’t take a break at 12. Plan your rest breaks so they don’t kill your productivity.
3. Answering your boss’s WhatsApp messages
It’s important to set boundaries between work and private life. Psychologists say we should never discuss work problems or bring professional relationships into instant messaging apps like WhatsApp because we consider them as something personal.
Plus, if you use WhatsApp in your relationships with your superiors at work, they can see if you’ve received and read their last message but chose to ignore them.
