🎀“Happiness is a habit – cultivate it.” ~ Elbert Hubbard
Hello dear readers, 🙂 2020 has changed all of our daily routines. Balancing home and work life is not easy for everyone. My routine currently revolves around my family, as many changes took place during the lockdown. I adapted this new routine and many of you may be facing these changes as well.
My essential habits and priorities are intact, which are keeping me happy and productive at home. These habits are easy to follow and you can stick to them for a lifetime.
For working people, their routines need to be different and effective. Their work lifestyle can create little complications if they don’t follow good habits and routines.
🎀 Best quote on changing habits for a happier life :
“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.” ~ Jim Rohn
💈How to change your habits for happier and productive work life.
👉The first thing you have to do is identify which of your habits are good to follow as your old habits may not be suitable for the current situations.
You should choose which of your habits to follow for a happier work life as well as home life. You can be productive both ways by following the habits below.
Some habits need to change with time.
It’s always good to be continually improving and learning new things. These become your new habits to cultivate.
Choose a substitute good habit for a bad habit. The habit of negligence or procrastinating can affect your whole day.
Change needs time, change one habit at a time. Practice it for 21 days continuously until it becomes natural to you. When you change too fast and too many things, you can feel stressed out and fail.
💗Try to surround yourself with people who encourage you positively and help you.

🏅The 15 best and essential habits for a happier and productive life...
🔺1. Planning for the next a day earlier and keeping important things in place will help in getting through the next day smoothly. I briefly lay out a plan every night either in my mind or by writing it in my planner, if there are too many things to do.
🔺2. 💖 Me time in the mornings is a must for having a good day.
Waking up a little early always gives you that extra time to exercise, breathe fresh air as you walk around, meditate or sit and relax to have a coffee alone. There’s no rush at this time. Your first charge of positive energy starts with a good start in the morning. Watching the sunrise and listening to birds sing is heavenly, isn’t it!😍Don’t miss this opportunity every morning.
🔺3. Tidy up your house as much as possible at this time, or when time allows. Finishing tough jobs first saves us more time later in the day to sit back and enjoy. The further we push it, the more we procrastinate.
🔺4. Take a few minutes to clear your mind from racing negative thoughts before you shower. Listening to your favorite music also helps. A cold shower relaxes you.
🔺5. A prayer by lighting a candle and incense fills your house with positive energy to guide you through the day. It will instantly lift your mood.
🔺6. Have a healthy breakfast with your family. Breakfast fuels you for the rest of the day. Working people can pack healthy snacks to get through the day.
🔺7. As you leave your home for work to start your day, remind yourself to be kind and patient with yourself and others throughout the day.
🔺8. Finish off your chores in the morning before you leave home and encourage your partner to help you around. This will let you be more productive the whole day. It gives you the confidence to work full-time without worrying.
🔺9. When you try to be more mindful and clear, your productivity improves. For this, you have to follow a positive ritual or routine. A positive environment creates a creative and successful life.
🔺10. Take breaks in between your working schedules. Try to walk around and get a breath of fresh air, if possible. Drink plenty of liquids and have healthy snacks. Fresh air and green places reduce stress instantly.
🔺11. Practice listening to others attentively and understand them. This will change your whole outlook, and their attitude towards you will totally change positively. They will reciprocate well in time when you need their help.
🔺12. Find new ways of doing things differently and think innovatively. This helps you grow fast. Changing and redesigning your thinking patterns tremendously improve your daily experiences and create new brain pathways. This helps you easily multitask.
🔺13. As you return home, get ready to leave your workday experiences outside and make up your mind to spend time with your family. If you have to work, set up a specific hour after you finish the essential routine at home.
🔺14. Connecting with your loved ones is an important step you don’t want to miss out on. Chill out with your family, have a relaxing dinner, and follow your favorite shows on TV as you catch up on each other’s activities and plans for the next day or the week.
🔺15. Make a bedtime cool down ritual, say no to technology at this time. Listen to calming music and maybe drink some warm milk. Thank God for a good day and all the blessings he showers upon you. Then plan briefly for the next day’s activities.
🛌Have a restful and deep sleep for 7/8 hours.
