In today’s ever growing corporate world, everyone is compelled to work hard in order to achieve fame and success for themselves and at the same time to be able to survive in the increasingly competitive market. This calls for a lot of time, money and effort. Prioritizing between your work and personal life can serve as quite a challenge. Let us help you to restore a better-work life balance.
When you plan for the upcoming week, make it a point to schedule a sufficient amount towards family time and activities that would give you the perfect breakthrough from the realms of work.
By doing so you’ll always have something to look forward to after a hectic day at work. It would serve as an extra incentive to manage your time efficiently and would thereby lead to fewer cancellations.
Prioritize your work
Always prioritize your task list in order of urgency and preferences. Set your priorities. This will keep you more organised and would help you complete your to-do list systematically, probably giving you more time for your personal life too.
This way you can also set short- term and long-term goals for yourself. It would prove to the upper management that you are able to take charge of your work and putting in the effort to increase efficiency.
Learn to say no
When you’re in the growing stage of your career you’re always open to new opportunities and tend to take up any task offered to you. In doing so you not only over burden and drown yourself in work but also find yourself in a difficult situation back home when you’re unable to give them sufficient time nor do you get a peace of mind for yourself. This is when you realise it’s time you learn to say no to certain jobs. It’s not a sign of weakness but simply a means to create space and time for you, to be able to complete your tasks more efficiently.
Respect your personal time
When you’re at work you focus simply on that and would try to avoid all personal calls at that time. The same should be done during your private time. Respect your personal life just as much as you do for your work. To go back home and still be glued on to your phone, taking work calls or responding to client mails isn’t really doing any justice to your family and your private time.
Exercise and Meditate.
After a busy day at work a little yoga, meditation or gym time would be the perfect stress buster. Exercise and meditation are the best sources of energy chargers and can also help you focus better on your work and think clearly. An hour at the gym with your headphones on would pump you up for whatever there is to come.
Sleep. What most people tend to miss out on or take for granted is their sleep. You may have a set of deadlines to complete or a ton of tasks at hand but without enough sleep you’re only further exhausting yourself and making it strenuous to function well.
Find a mentor
Finally, it’s always a good idea to find yourself a mentor or a personal coach – someone who has it all and has the ability to guide you on your targets, time and work management and ultimately career development.
Hope we’ve set you off on finding the perfect balance between your personal and professional life!
