In this 24/7 world we live in it’s getting harder and harder to be productive. To get into flow when you need to concentrate and to manage your attention. However, you have the power to be more productive by getting on top of habits which lead you to self-sabotage your own productivity levels.

Having no routine
Bad sleep ‘hygiene’ (you know iPhone in bed, Netflix binges late into the night, too much caffeine….) and poor sleep
Saying Yes when you know you really should say No
Not planning your day ahead
Having no to do list

Wearing multitasking as a badge of honour
Not taking breaks
Poor eating habits
Excessive use of social media
Being a slave to your email
Trying to do everything yourself
