Work-life balance: all should attain it
Hello readers, today I will be writing about work-life balance. According to businessdictionary.com, work-life balance "is a comfortable state of equilibrium achieved between an employee's primary priorities of their employment position and their private lifestyle." All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, thus, you should find a balance between work and play. Here are some tips to help you achieve it.
1. Do not check your email (work) after working hours, this will help improve the quality of time you spend with your family and friends. Thus, you should not be distracted by work when spending time with your family and friends.
2. When you decide to improve the situation of your work life balance, take it one step at a time. For example if you do not get to spend time in the evenings with your family during the week days due to coming back late from work, you should decide to spend one day a week and gradually increase it to two and then three till you get to spend the whole five week days with them. According to researchers, you cannot change your working pattern drastically as you will be unable to keep it up.
3. You should spend some of your time daily doing exercises. This will equip you emotionally. When you carry out exercises you are taking good care of yourself which is part of having a work-life balance.
4. You should establish your boundaries and should not be afraid of communicating them. You should respect your boundaries so that you can get others to respect them. Learn to say no to work when it is past your working hours and you need to spend time with your family or friends
All of this will help improve your work-life balance. Thank you for reading this article. Keep checking out my blog regularly, cheers!
