5 Steps to Achieving Healthy Balance in Work and Life

5 Steps to Achieving Healthy Balance in Work and LifeAre you feeling overwhelmed, tired and stressed because you’re working crazy hours and even when you’re not at work you’re still working?  Well, you are not alone.

The key to success of balance in both work and your personal life is all about setting boundaries.

How can you balance work and life?  Effective time management is essential to achieve this. The result is having time to honor all commitments and to enjoy every moment of your life.

“In all of living, have much fun and laughter. Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured.” ― Gordon B. Hinckley


Here are some effective ways to achieving a healthy balance in work and life.

  1. Don’t mix personal life and work. It’s never a good practice to mix the two as it can create problems in both areas. Dividing your time and prioritizing things will keep your sanity and allow you to enjoy a content life.
  2. Save weekends for friends and family. Your time on weekends should be reserved for loved ones to spend quality time with one another, play games or enjoy leisure activities.
  3. Don’t overwork. If you overwork, you will burn yourself out and be forced to rest. There will be no energy left for doing the things you enjoy. If you dedicate most of your time to work, even the little amount of time you could spend at home with loved ones will be lost because you are so tired. So, if you want to properly balance your work and life, you should avoid overworking
  4. Keep an organizer, journal, or agenda. It is important to have a habit of utilizing a calendar for prioritizing your goals and commitments in order to complete your activities in an organized way. Putting your goals and engagements in hard copy allows you to refer back and complete tasks. By writing these goals down you are making a formal commitment to yourself to complete the tasks, and in turn, you are also holding yourself accountable. You will increase your success rate by following this guideline.

Set and Commit to a Plan. Effective time management is all about choosing one’s goals, picking a time frame to accomplish these goals, and commitment to the plan you establish. Once you do this, you will be able to establish a better work-life balance.5 Steps to Achieving Healthy Balance in Work and Life
