From my personal and corporate work experiences, I very well understand if you are finding it hard to maintain a healthy balance with your work, health and life. The good news is that there is not much effort required to achieve this other than focus on the required result. By following small steps mentioned in my blog, you will not only increase your work performance but your overall health, family relations, and mental wellbeing.
Look into the below steps and see if you are following any:
Finding the answers
Have you tried finding out the barriers that are preventing to lead a healthy work-life balance? Look out for common barriers: working late in order to finish the work on the same day, work culture of your organisation, competing with others, family and relationship concerns, negative thoughts due to poor emotional wellbeing, no flexibility at work, attitudes and behaviours of others, pressure from superiors.
Guess what there is a life outside work is
With an unhealthy work-life balance, you are missing out on many small things in your daily life. Imbalance between work and life causes skipping of meals, daily activities, your hobbies and good night sleep. Mental health disorders are a growing concern globally and in the UK. It is quite common in working groups. You need to find out the small things, activities that make you happy and meet other people more often.
Is there a solution?
It all starts from your home. After a long working day, destress yourself by listening to relaxing music, going out for a short walk with family, keeping away the distractions (phone, laptop), take dog for a stroll. Thinking a lot about work when at home is an indication that you are under immense pressure and leads to stress. Involve yourself in dinner/cooking arrangements, set the table and sit with the family during dinner time. Share your all-day experience, achievements what made you laugh, sad or any new acquaintances at work etc.
What can you do anything when at work?
Key point is to love your work when at workplace and take short breaks to keep yourself away from the screen. Small activities such as making a cuppa for yourself and for your colleagues, walk from one desk to another, lunch break (go out even if you have your own meal and sit outside in an open environment). If at all, you are not able to cope with your daily work and are still unhappy then you are a strong analyser for yourself and it’s a time to change the job 😊
Be positive and create a positive environment around
Spend time with yourself and create positivity around you. Approach people, talk to them, laugh together, share your thoughts and most importantly never Give Up. Think of these ideas and try to evaluate your condition. Find a way out of your problem and a healthy exit from the situation which makes you unhealthy!
