Many of us have a daily routine, whether we mean to or not. We do things in a similar order each day, around the same time, just going through the motions. Since most of us rarely switch things up, we donai??i??t question whether or not thereai??i??s a more effective way to perform our daily tasks.
You might be surprised to learn that there are several common things that many of us do wrong!
1. Working Without Planning Your Lunch Break
You might feel productive by working through your lunch break, but youai??i??ll have trouble concentrating if you donai??i??t give yourself a break. Use your lunch break to relax and fuel your mind and body with healthy food. If you feel most productive from 8 to 12, then plan your lunch break at 12, right when you need a little pick-me-up.
2. Adding Oil To Pasta Water
Even if youai??i??re a pro at cooking pasta, you might be doing something wrong. Adding oil to your pasta water can prevent the sauce from sticking to the pasta. To cook the perfect pasta dish, make sure youai??i??re using the right amount of water. Try 1 liter per 100 grams of dry pasta and 1.5 liters for 100 grams of fresh pasta.
