How to maintain a work/life balance



More and more people are finding themselves working jobs which could be considered “always on”. It can be really difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance. As a recruitment agency we know exactly what to do to help you achieve that. Here are some tips to get your work-life balance right.

The off button

Every electronic device has an on and off button. Turning your phone or laptop off, even for a couple hours a day, while you spend some alone time or family time can really help you relax. It is important to get into a habit of taking a break. You need to understand that having your phone off for an hour a day will not cause the world to end. On the other hand, a little break can help you a lot.

Priorities your needs

Do you need to finish work on time for a family dinner but know that you’ll have to stay longer next Friday to make up for it? Maybe you want to start a gym glass which means you won’t be available on a Saturday for a few hours? Whatever it is that you want to do, you need to be open about it. Give yourself a few hours a week where work doesn't exist. We all need a break at some point.

Follow your rules

In whatever way you decide to give yourself a break, remember to stick to your own promises! You may find it hard at first but once you start seeing the benefits you will understand why breaks are important. Don’t give yourself excuses to do more work or not take break. You will never find a healthy balance if you start lying to yourself.
