- Set realistic goals: Set achievable goals for yourself, both professionally and personally. This will help you stay motivated and focused on what’s important.
- Schedule time for yourself: Make sure to set aside time for yourself to relax, exercise, or engage in hobbies that you enjoy. This will help you recharge and feel more refreshed and energized. CHECK OUT: Carve out some time for yourself & Make your personal well-being your first priority
- Learn to say no: Don’t take on more than you can handle. Be honest with yourself and others about what you can and cannot do. CHECK OUT: Learn to say ‘Enough’
- Disconnect: It’s essential to disconnect from work and technology periodically. Set boundaries on when you will check emails or take work calls, and stick to them. CHECK OUT: Disconnect to Reconnect
- Delegate: If possible, delegate some of your work to others. This will help you focus on the most critical tasks and reduce your workload.
- Seek support: Talk to your manager, colleagues, family or a Life Coach and friends about your workload and stress. They may be able to offer support or suggestions on how to improve your work-life balance.
