4 Ways To Help You To Get The Perfect Work Life Balance

4 Ways To Help You To Get The Perfect Work/Life Balance

Do you want to get the perfect balance between your personal life and your work? Whether you work part time or full time, or in an office or at home, this can be a daily issue for many people.

However, there are many steps you can take to make sure you have a good balance between work and your social life – check out four ways you can get the perfect work/life balance.

1. Understand the meaning of ‘balance’

Everyone has different priorities, from running a successful business to having children. Think about your life priorities and consider how you can achieve them. If you want to start a business, you may have to put in overtime for a few years to reap the benefits. However, this could affect your personal life. Ask yourself; can I achieve my work and personal life dreams? Do I need to prioritise? How can I make sure I achieve both, and not just one?

2. Consider your location

Living two hours away from your work means you will need to spend four hours a day commuting. For some people, this is a useful chance to catch up on other work or get some time alone. If you resent your commute, it may be because you are not using the time wisely. Ask yourself; could I work somewhere closer? How could I make my commute useful, instead of a time-waster? Would I be willing to relocate for my work?

3. Keep a schedule for important events

Some work events and personal events are both more important than others, from networking events to date nights with your partner. Instead of prioritizing one over the other set one night aside a week for each; this allows you to put time and effort into both areas of your life without prioritizing one over the other.

4. Set work boundaries

While you are in work, your number one priority is your job – so when you leave, the reverse should be true. If you struggle to switch off from work when you’re finished, set yourself work boundaries to help you. Switch off your work phone so your colleagues can’t contact you and don’t check your emails while you’re not in work. If you explain this to your co-workers in advance and give them an emergency number, you should have any problems.
