A matter of life and … work!
The ability to multitask, the availability of tools that allow one to be online everywhere all the time is, one one hand, a benefit for an employee and the company. However, on the other hand, it can lead to imbalance of work-life and emotional burnout.
Why is the personal work-life balance important?
Employees with the right balance are more motivated and productive, less susceptible to stress and fatigue.
How can you keep balance and prevent burnout?
Some practical tips:
- Manage your time. Determine how much time you need for professional activities and personal affairs so that everything is in relative balance.
- Prioritize. Achieving equal success in all areas of life: work, family, hobbies, reputation, finances, etc is difficult and almost impossible. Determine the main ones and evaluate on how they should coexist.
- Separate work from personal life. Being online after work hours and responding in corporate messengers is the norm for many. But this approach gets in the way of first and foremost… work. A vacation, weekend or free time is an opportunity to relax and unwind so you can get back to business full of energy and strength.
- Rest regularly. You need to regularly disconnect and focus only on your own needs to let your mind relax and enjoy the results of your work.
- Spend time with people you like. Socializing with family, friends and close acquaintances allows you to share your experiences, gain new knowledge, expand your horizons, and feel like an accomplished person.
