  • 5 Tips To Achieving Work-Life Balance

    The concept of work-life balance is nothing new - achieving proper balance between your career and lifestyle (health, pleasure, leisure and family) is a concept that many have been striving after for decades. In today’s fast-paced career-driven world achieving proper work-life balance is no easy feat, but with the help of these 5 top tips you’ll be well on your way to giving both your career and well-being a well-earned boost.

    1. Work Smart – Work smart, not long. This means tight prioritisation is essential. Allocate a certain amount of time for each task and try not to get too involved with the less productive activities in your working day.

    2. Set The Rules – Rely on your own intuition, after all who knows you better than you do! Why not try working from home? Say no to working late and on your weekends. And rather than going out for a business meeting how about a virtual one over Skype?

    3. Take A Break – Make sure to take proper breaks at work, ensuring you have at least 30 minutes at lunch. Proper nourishment is essential not only to your health but also for productive working.

    4. Leave Work At Work – At the end of your working day leave your work where it is. Why not write yourself a list of your outstanding tasks or any work things that are on your mind, then shut the diary and close the laptop. The action of shutting down your computer and closing your diary gives you a satisfying sense of end-of-day closure.

    5. Exercise And Relax – It’s no myth that exercise reduces stress, so take time out of your daily routine for a few minutes of exercise. You’ll feel far more refreshed and upbeat afterwards. Relaxation and meditation are also essential, allowing you time to clear mind and breathe.
