One DB, Multiple Environments.

Hello Guys, 


I am in a strange conditon that, I have one SQL DB, from where I am pulling data to dataflows in three environments (dev,test and prod) on Power BI Service. I need suggestions what should I do because everytime I promote a data model for example from dev to test, I have to go to the power query of dev data model and change each table's data source to test dataflow and then save and publish the data model to the test environment. 


Should I keep dataflows in only one environment and connect data models in all environments to that one? is it a good practice? or is there any other sufficient and time efficient method? 


Please put your suggestions, I'd really appreciate your help. Thank you.
