3 Bad Work Habits You Need to Break Right Now

April 23, 2019

Career Advice

The excitement of new year’s resolutions have probably worn off by now, but it’s never too late to make a few micro-improvements that can make a big impact on your day, as well as your overall career access. Here are three changes you can focus on this week.

  1. Don’t skip a lunch break. If you’re suffering from burn-out, overwhelm, or an extreme case of stress, a mid-day lunch break can be a sanity saver. Even thought it feels like you don’t have time for a break, a break is exactly what your mind and body needs. You’ll likely be more productive after a moment of recharging.
  2. Don’t start the week off on a whim. We’ve already talked about the importance of Mondays. It can really start your week off on a super productive note which can set the tone for the rest of your week. It may  even be able to help you squash the Sunday Scaries since you’ll feel better prepared.
  3. Don’t let others run your day. Instead of being reactive, be proactive. Take control of your social media habit, your daily schedule, your inbox, and any other external distractions. When you have a more rigid approach to your priorities, no one will be able to derail your day.
