7 harmful habits we think are good for us but in fact make things worse!

- You can sleep more at weekends? You should only sleep between 7-8 hours a night, every night!
- You should shower 1-2 times a day? You should only shower when you need to, your skin creates oils that protect itself.
- Your home should be perfectly clean? No, this increases the risk of allergies developing, a bit of dust builds a strong immune system, being to clean isn't good for anyone!
- All sunglasses protect your eyes from the sun? Wrong! Cheap sunglasses are only tinted black, they don't have protection against the suns harmful rays.
- You should use an alarm clock to wake up? This In fact is quite harmful, you should naturally wake up on your own. I will get more into this later on.

What will happen to my body if I go to bed early every day?
You will be surprised!
The optimal time for going to bed every night is between 9 O'clock and 10 O'clock. It's probably going to take me until then to write this live better healthy lifestyle list haha!
If you do this you will start waking up in a great mood every morning. Result! no more 'wrong side of the bed' statuses!
You will also feel a rush of energy and strength from early on, great if you go to the gym in the morning!
Another great benefit of going to bed early, is that you will sleep less and have more time to enjoy life. Your productivity will increase 10 fold, who knows, you might even get a raise because of this?
Do you have bad skin and can't seem to get rid of it? Get yourself to bed early and your prayers will be answered!
Another major benefit which is a big talking point in today's society is weight gain. Let me tell you a little secret, going to bed early actually helps fight weight gain, and even sheds those pounds, for free!
Do you ever feel depressed or generally down in the dumps? Yeah, we can all get like that at times, you're not alone.
Going to bed early fights depression, and makes you less susceptible to depression.
If you wake up tired, which I have quite a few times, it's probably because you have gone to bed to late!
Here are some habits that will make you a highly effective leader!
You may wonder why this is on the list, but being better at work also has its health benefits.
To be a highly effective leader you need to always keep learning, the best leaders never stop.
Always develop your staff and help them improve, they will be grateful for this and become more productive!
Another trait of an effective leader is to stay laser focused on the task in hand, you will never lose!
A good leader will communicate the future clearly. Meaning the set goals they want to achieve, come across clear and precise, for everyone to understand and move on forward with!
Time for the dreaded hire and fire bit.
Sometimes you have to fire employees, but only when necessary. A good leader will take their time to hire employees but will not take any prisoners and fire fast.
To be a good leader and role model the trick is to stay humble!
Don't go around bragging and flashing your cash, it only irritates people and makes you look like a tw*t, you will lose respect from employees and friends alike!
Most importantly, you need to always embrace failure and learn from it, this trait will make you go far!
Listen to other people's advice, you can't always be right! Don't blame others for your failures and mistakes.
This is a fast track way to lose valuable employees and fail again! Be warned!
