7 Ways We Sabotage Our Happiness and Productivity
Show Notes

Since I founded Positively Productive Systems in 2016, I’ve seen my fair share of physical clutter and loved every minute of helping clients clear it and start fresh. But what I've been most fascinated with is helping clients declutter their minds and hearts because inside is where it all starts. This week, episode 118 of the Positively Living Podcast is about 7 ways we sabotage our happiness and productivity!

In this episode of the Positively Living Podcast, I’m sharing the importance of noticing the link between our physical space and how it is affected by what is going on inside our minds and I provide actionable steps you can take right now to get to the root of the matter, your mindset. Shifting your mindset is critical for long lasting change. 

The 7 ways we sabotage our happiness and productivity are:

  1. Saying “should” all of the time. 
  2. Comparing ourselves to others. 
  3. Assuming what people think. 
  4. Repeating the same negative stories.
  5. Believing that self-care is optional.
  6. Spending time with negative people. 
  7. Seeing failure as a bad thing. 

What you focus on, you fuel. Where you direct your attention matters and you end up with more of whatever has it. What has your attention?
