What is a good work-life balance?

You can follow a few steps to improve how you divide your energy and time across work and personal life.

1. Define boundaries and work hours

The first step to improving your work-life balance involves setting clear boundaries between work and personal life. More importantly, you should stick to it.

2. Make a to-do list

Once you’ve set boundaries and defined your work hours, you should have a to-do list for the day, week, or month. You need to know the things (tasks, duties, meetings, appointments, etc.) you need to get done during a specific period.

3. Block out distractions while working

Since you already know what activities, you’ll carry out throughout the day, the next important step is to be focused and avoid distractions.

4. Don’t be afraid to say no

Do you ever accept extra tasks or commitments to get along with your manager or boss? It’s time you learn to say no to the additional workload you cannot handle, which consumes a significant portion of your time.

5. Prioritize your health

Physical, mental, and emotional health should not be overlooked to achieve a good work-life balance. Consider engaging in regular exercises before or after work. Also, have practical ways of unwinding your mind, relaxing, and enhancing your relationship with loved ones during your time. More importantly, get quality sleep.
