Are you often having difficulty being productive at work, prioritizing and planning family time and getting enough sleep and downtime too?
There are several reasons why mastering work-life integration is so essential right now, as well as maintaining personal balance- the kind where you can stand on one foot and not fall down! The balance need not be equal pieces of “the wheel of life” and compromises can be made without sabotaging wellbeing, happy family life and relationships. Keeping a flexible calendar and writing in exercise-gym time, family time etc. can be helpful in the juggling and maintaining balance. Taking meaningful time away from work, whether it be a few hours a day, a weekend or vacation can be wonderfully recharging.
It’s important to honor bio-rhythms so that you work when you believe you can perform the best and do personal activities to break up your day. This is one way to integrate work and life so that you remain sane and are able to accomplish (almost) everything you want to do from a personal and professional perspective. Taking “joy” and exercise-stretch breaks throughout the day clears your mind, stretches muscles and ups the endorphins (feeling good hormones) and creativity factor.
Keeping a flexible calendar and scheduling things like going to the gym, writing articles, reading, meetings, research at around the same time each day can be helpful to create habits and have more control over what you’re doing and when.
Whether the problem is too much focus on work or too little, when your work life and your personal life feel out of balance, often times stress, along with its harmful effects, is the result. Need some guidance? Brainstorming, mentoring and being “accountable” to more than yourself?
