Being successful in life can often be the result of maintaining a successful balancing act. On the one hand, you do not want to be lying around doing nothing as laziness benefits no one other than house cats. On the other hand, overdoing it is bad for both mind and body no matter what your age and physical health.
So the best course of action is to find the right balance. And it is worth the time to figure that out because productivity is actually good for you.
It is a great way to learn new things
If you are in the habit of being productive, chances are you are more open to trying new things. This can open up a whole new world of learning possibilities for you, increasing your skills in both life and the workplace.
It keeps your brain healthy
Learning all of those new things helps to keep your brain active and that is good for its overall health. Many scientific studies show that one of the keys to staving off dementia is maintaining a schedule of activities that are stimulating and challenging. In other words, use it or lose it.
It can help your career
A lot of people are content to do the bare minimum in their jobs. That may be enough to keep them employed, but it certainly does little for their chances of advancement. Being productive or even increasing your department’s productivity will certainly get you noticed by the supervisor and that is very beneficial for your chances to get ahead at work.
You will enjoy your vacations even more
If you are busy and productive in life and on the job, there is a very good chance that you will enjoy your vacations even more because you will be up-to-date and have nothing to worry about while you are enjoying the fun and sun.
