Find Work-Life Balance in 2013

January 3, 2013

Career Advice

Work Life BalanceIt’s one of our 2013 Career Resolutions. And living a life with less stress is synonymous with finding work-life balance. No matter what stage of life you’re in, it’s easy to get wrapped up in a project so much so that you either stay at work until 8 PM or you keep worrying about it even when after you’ve left the office. Here are some strategies to keep your work life and your home life separate.

Start Right in the Morning
Get up early enough to get the things done that need to be done. That includes doing things that make you happy and healthy like eating a healthy breakfast before work, making a lunch, and maybe even squeezing in a work out.

Take Advantage of Lunch
You need a break in the middle of the day. It will power yourself up not only physically but also mentally. Eating at your desk during lunch makes for tired eyes (no one likes starting at a computer all day!) and a tired mind.

Beat the Afternoon Slump
Power up with a healthy snack or walk outside – or around the office if the weather is not great. Try to wean yourself off sugar and caffeine as an energizer. All you’ll get is a short burst of motivation, but then you’ll be back to where you started

Schedule Your Day…
…and stick to it. Just as you’d schedule a doctor’s appointment, schedule in time after work to do the extra curricular activities that you make you happy and healthy. That includes working out and spending time with family.
