So, in challenging times like this where many people are adapting to working differently, it can be even more important to set healthy boundaries around work. Looking at things in terms of work-life balance — how your time and energy is divided across different aspects of your life — can help.
Here are five steps you can take now to start improving your work-life balance and prioritise your overall wellbeing.
Leisure, time with family or friends, and pursuing other activities outside of work are all important to us in different ways. Sometimes you might really have to give your job extra attention, or you might feel work has held you back from getting all the activities you want into your week. But when too much of your energy constantly goes into work, the effects can add up over time, says Leah Lambart of Relaunch Me Career Consulting. It can be difficult to recognise when you need to focus on restoring your work-life balance, but there are s you can be aware of.
She says the way you feel physically, emotionally and mentally are important to take note of, too. Examine your situation. Think about what your most important values are and how you want to spend your time. And be honest about your personal needs. Take care of your health. Ensure you get enough sleep and exercise by including it in your routine, and make sure to reward yourself for your hard work by treating yourself every now and then.
Learn to say no.
If you need to work late constantly just to get by, let your boss know that your workload is unsustainable. Plan fun activities for your personal time.
Get organised with family and friends, to ensure your personal time is fulfilling. Connecting digitally is important to a lot of us right now but try to get some down time away from that as well. Balance can feel tricky to achieve.
But by trying these steps you can begin to find ways to make work feel less consuming and free up focus for the other parts of your life — even when times are challenging. Career Advice E.
