In today’s busy world, prioritizing between your work and your personal life can be a huge challenge, but studies show that a poor work-life balance can result in unhealthy levels of stress, unhappiness, and reduced productivity.
We can balance our personal and professional life through:
Set Priorities: Figure out what are your top priorities. What are the things that are of lesser importance?
Keep Track of Your Time: For at least one week, track how you spend your time. Make a to-do list accordingly and meet up small goals or preset plans.
Concentrate on one thing at a time: Forget multitasking, it’s not possible to focus on two things at the same, instead, devote your full attention to the present task at your hand, when you are working at the office or when you are spending time with your family, try to focus on them.
Respect Your Private Time: You may have a hectic schedule. But every day you should keep aside some time for yourself too and have some time for self-care.
Schedule one thing each day that you look forward to achieving: Make a list or schedule every day of one thing which you are trying to achieve, rather than messing up with lots of things which you may try to do at a single time.
Practice Healthy Personal Habits and Lifestyle: Lack of proper sleep, poor nutrition, and no exercise can cause you to feel a lack of balance in our life and can dent any efforts, which we are trying to achieve in work-life balance.
Take a Vacation: At least take two weeks off from your work per year. You don’t need to go far and don’t need to spend a lot of money, but do need to recharge our batteries to be the more productive, being a creative and happy person. Take a complete break.
Daily Exercise: Exercise relieves stress, clears our mind and ultimately makes us more productive. Never skip your daily exercise.
