Bad habits to break
Using your phone when in bed
This is probably one bad habit that most of us tend to follow. Little do we realize that it can also harm our overall productivity and sleep? It can also have a negative impact on our mood, energy level and most importantly the quality of our sleep. This is so because when our eyes are directly exposed to the light of the phone it can make us more sensitive to it. This is the problem with most devices including laptops or tablets. It not only affects the ability of falling asleep but also has a negative impact on our mood. For this reason the best thing to avoid this habit is to not watch any television post your dinner.

Checking your phone during a conversation
Let us tell you that this is definitely a big turn off and you need to stop following this practice immediately. It is very irritating when you start checking your phone during a mid-conversation just to text someone or to get a quick glance of your phone. When you are communicating with someone your entire commitment should be given to that conversation. This will help in creating a positive and strong bond with the person you are interacting and will make a conversation all the more enjoyable.
Saying ‘yes’ when you didn’t want to
The more difficulty you have saying no, let us tell you the more it is going to increase your stress levels and cause you mental issues such as depression. You should never be afraid to turn someone down if you do not want to get into a particular task or not want to give any kind of commitment to anybody. You always need to remind yourself that when you decline in anybody’s request due to your own personal reason it shows you have good self-control.
