Balance Your Work and Life Demands Better

Get better at juggling your work and life balance.

Despite the continuous quest for juggling work and life demands, not many of us succeed in balance. Most of us have replied to a work email from home this weekend, stayed late at work every night this week, and cut vacations short because of an important work meeting. When you feel overwhelmed by work, it’s essential to take a step back and remember that you have a life.

Even though there is no one remedy to instantly balance your work and life, there are some easy steps to take for a more balanced life.

Leave it: No matter how dedicated you are to your job, leave work at the door when you finish. This distinction will help you to focus on your life demands while away from the office.

Sort it: If you check your emails outside of the office, only reply to the critical ones. If a response can wait until you’re back in work, leave it.

Review: Allow time to reflect on the work you’ve done, and what tasks you have lined up.

Plan ahead: Plan a family activity to focus on and spend quality time away from work!

Get fit: Maintain a fit and active lifestyle to release stress and better your well-being.

Take a break: Allow yourself time away from work, completely!

Unplug: While away from work, it’s natural to want to spend time away from your work email and phone. Make time for you – that is not sitting on the computer or talking to clients.

Set schedules: Set up a calendar or to-do list to stay on track of your tasks at work.

Time it: Avoid working long hours, which can rapidly decrease your health.

Employees and employers should make an active effort to maintain a reasonable work-life balance for their physical and mental health.
