There are changes you can make to your daily life to boost your productivity. It may not come easy at first, but once you form new habits everything will fall into place.
According to studies, up to 40% of our daily actions are powered by habits. Meaning your subconscious mind can either work for you or against you. But you don’t need studies to tell you how powerful the right habits can be. Whole books have been filled with the daily routines of successful entrepreneurs, innovators, and creatives.
What is the difference between a habit and a routine?
A habit is an action or behavior you’ve turned into an automatic response. Something triggers you (either externally like a notification, or internally like a certain feeling) and you’re compelled to follow it through.
A routine, on the other hand, is a string of habits you create for specific parts of the day. Maybe it’s a morning routine you do when you first wake up. Or an afternoon routine to help you get over the post-lunch dip. Whatever it is, we all have these routines. But we don’t all realize how powerful they are.
Now that you know the difference of a habit vs. a routine, review your daily habits/routines to optimize your happiness and make the most out of your day’s!
