How to Achieve a Good Work-life Balance
What does a good Work-life Balance Consist of?
Balancing your professional and personal life can be challenging, but it's essential. It's important to understand how to better manage your time in your work day and achieve a good work-life balance. But also how to detach from work once your day ends and know how to care for yourself.
Now that a lot of employees are working from home, due to Covid restrictions, there can be a fine line between professional and personal home-life boundaries.
Social media, advanced technology and multiple levels of communication can sometimes make it too easy to check in on work projects. Even when you're off the clock.
As a result, all this connection can allow work to bleed into your time at home. Therefore, it's important to establish a dissociation with work once the day ends. However, by setting limits and looking after yourself, you can achieve the work-life balance that's best for you.
Working from home or frequently using technology to connect to work when you're at home can cause you to feel like you're always on the job. This can lead to chronic stress.
As long as you're working, juggling the demands of career and personal life will probably be an ongoing challenge.
If ongoing, it can lead to health conditions such as fatigue, excess stress or poor health leading to medical conditions over a long timeframe.
Create a More Balanced Work Schedule
Evaluate your priorities at work and at home and try to shorten your to-do list. Cut or delegate activities you don't enjoy or can't handle. In addition, share your concerns and possible solutions with your employer or others. When you quit accepting tasks out of guilt or a false sense of obligation, you'll have more time for activities that are meaningful to you.
Ask your employer about flexible hours, a compressed workweek, job sharing or other scheduling flexibility. The more control you have over your hours, the less stressed you're likely to be. Eat well, include physical activity in your daily routine and get enough sleep.
Finally, implement online solutions to digitally transform your organisation. These reduce the manual and mundane tasks in your workplace, allowing you to balance the type of work you are doing each day.
Improve and streamline the ongoing creation, management, and distribution of your workplace document.
The key to document management is automation. Once a document is captured, it should work for you. It should be there when you need it and it should be accessible to those who need it when they need it.
