Let's face it, achieving a perfect Work/life balance is probably an impossible task for women! ⚖️
It doesn't mean we can't improve it and reach a more harmonious lifestyle.
It all starts with enjoying what’s going on around us, be present in the moment, and have a life outside of work.
Even if we are enjoying our work, a break is good. A bad work-life balance can make us irritable, stressed, impact our relationships, and affect our health.
Here are some suggestions that could help you improve your work/life balance:
1- Take time off - make sure to take at least 1 full day off per week
2- Avoid multitasking - Multitasking is actually counterproductive, our brains are not wired to multitask.
3- Work in batch as often as possible - schedule 1 day for Batch-work - Mine is Monday - It can take a little effort to start working ahead, but it’s important if you are looking for a better work-life balance.
4- Outsource - Virtual Assistant, Social media Manager, OBM, Project manager, delegate whatever is taking you too much time!
5- Set boundaries and don't be afraid of saying no! (Louder for the People-Pleasers in the back! )
6- Unplug - Technology makes it easy to work 24/7. Try to stay away from your phone, laptop, etc. when your work schedule is over, it will allow you time to yourself and to enjoy life a little more.
What do you do in order to manage a better work-life balance?
