The Surprising Link Between Productivity and Happiness

What have you done for your lightworker business today? What did you achieve yesterday? Do you take on a can-do spirit when you’re challenged? Here is what we call the comfy chair chair test. How much of the time are you huddled up in your comfy chair deeply immersed in a movie or playing a game on your electronic device to avoid the challenge of the day?

It turns out that how you make your way through an average day in terms of your productivity may determine how pleased with life you are.

Consider these gems when deciding whether to do something productive in your business or avoid it:

Ponder your feelings.

Reflect on your emotions after doing something productive versus wasting a few hours channel-surfing or just hanging out. Think about which situation makes you feel more positive and content.

How are your organizational skills?

Someone who’s organized usually finds it easier to accomplish desired goals. If you’re organized, you know where to find the correct tool quickly to put it to use. Living a disorganized existence means much time is lost trying to locate things. Therefore, productivity is reduced.

Make lists if you want to get things done.

A to-do list will quickly remind you of what you hope to complete. Plus, crossing items off that list brings positive feelings of satisfaction.

Have a schedule and follow it.

If you want to be productive, schedule in time for work and rest.

At the end of the day, you’ve met your productivity goals and still have some play time. Your confidence likely increases from your higher productivity level. Plus, your level of contentment has grown because you experienced some free time, too. That’s two reasons to be happy!

If you’re floundering to get something done, set up a time to do it. Let’s say you’ve wanted to clean out the garage for ages, but you’ve consistently come up with excuses why you’ve not yet done it. Establish a day and time you’ll devote to garage-cleaning, like Thursday from 9 a.m. to noon. Then do it.

Pay close attention to how you speak to yourself.

When you complete a task, do you say something to yourself like, “Good job” or “Wow, you completed that quickly” or “Way to go”? Or do you spoil it by saying things like, “What took you so long” or “It’s about time”?

It’s helpful to take note of what you say to yourself during moments you choose to waste away. Perhaps you’re telling yourself, “I hate doing X” or “I’m avoiding doing Y as long as I can.”

What you say to yourself is powerful and sets the tone for how you’ll proceed. Avoid using negative phrasing to increase productivity and happiness.

Your choice to get things done plays very much into your level of happiness. Concentrate on increasing task completion. You’ll be happy you did!
