Do you feel like you have the right balance of work and play? Or are you one of the many struggling each week just to reach the weekend and grab 5 minutes of unwind time – and even then, failing badly at that? Mastering work-life balance is a challenge.
With today's fast-paced and demanding world it’s not surprising that more people than ever cite a lack of work-life balance as one of their biggest stresses. But there are many reasons why better separating your personal and professional lives can only be a good thing.MAINTAIN MENTAL HEALTH
Unrealistic and demanding workloads, feeling undervalued for the work you’re doing, struggling to feel enthusiastic – all can lead to issues with mental health and maybe even burnout and chronic stress.PHYSICAL HEALTH and WELLBEING
Feeling healthy in your mind has a correlation to your improved physical health (and vice versa) and finding the time to exercise (even taking a walk occasionally) will help to keep your heart and blood pressure healthy.INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY
Taking some time off from work will actually make you MORE productive. Recharging those brain cells and bodies is great for putting things back into perspective and achieving more when you do return to work.
But whilst it’s all very well knowing just how much better your life could be with the right balance, actually achieving it seems to be somewhat harder.
So, before you find yourself at ‘burnout’ point what can you do to address things?
Work-life balance may feel unobtainable at times but by actively scheduling some downtime into your life and taking back some control you can at least start to address it.
