How to achieve work life balance

How to achieve work life balance

Having a good career in which one can build herself into a successful future is one of our essential goals, but how much will it cost us to reach up to our career goals? With the increase of divorce, depression and stress, it is becoming obvious that the work life balance is a serious issue that is affecting our communities today. Personally, as a full time employee and a full time masters student/ blogger, I have been battling with the subject of balance for a while now, and I think that I have came up with some tricks on balancing my job with my masters courses and my social life.

So here are my tips on having a good career while maintaining a healthy social life:

1- stop checking work email after 5 pm. Spend your evenings with your loved ones, eat good food and talk about your day.

2- find out what time of the day you are mostly efficient, and manage to finish the work you hate the most during that time. And then go out for a drink with your friends!

3- no matter how packed you are, never cancel date night. Ever! Love leads to motivation, ladies!

4- think about weekends as your mini vacations, try getting some sunlight!

5- take it easy on yourself: keep in mind that the most successful people in history have once faced failure or struggled reaching their goals, and that as long as we are trying then we are on the right track.

  • Work life balance is something I am trying to improve on this year!

    This is so great, I need this so bad. It is hard to separate work life from home life, especially when you work from home. Thanks for the reminder!

  • The email is what gets me every time! Such a good idea to stop checking emails after a certain time. When I go out to dinner, I now try to not even take my phone out of my purse, because I know there will be something I “have” to do! lol
