Oftentimes, our goal to achieve success sets aside our well-being. Work affects our physical, mental, and emotional state. How can we create a harmonious life between prioritizing work demands and quality of life?
1. Prioritize your health
Putting health in all utmost condition saves you from a lot of trouble and financial struggles. Your whole well-being: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health should be your ultimate priority, even before our jobs. Morning runs, eating healthy, practicing meditation or even just a daily mental break are just some of the many ways of taking care of your health.
2. Work Smart
Spending longer hours at work doesn't mean more productivity. Work smarter means being efficient without wasting too much time and effort on work. There are many ways to increase efficiency. Some examples are: Focusing on high-priority tasks first, the "Pomodoro" technique, time management skills, and many more. Try something that works for you.
3. Unplug after work
After ending your workday, do you still open your laptop and try to get some work done? Do you check work emails during holidays? If you are guilty of these habits, it is likely that you might experience burnout and decrease productivity at work. Separate yourself after working hours by having some 'me time. Do exercises, play sports, or anything else that would not involve work.
4. Find time for hobbies
Always remember to never lose sight of your passion. Never let your work responsibilities overshadow doing things that you love. Find your creative outlet to fuel and re-energize your soul. These nurture your creative thoughts which are essential to business owners.
Give yourself a break and find time to rest. You deserve it. However, your leave-days don't only mean you always have to do something, sometimes just by lounging, you are giving yourself a rest.
6. Build stronger relationships
Don't forget the people who are always by your side - your family, your friends, or someone that you love. They are your support system for the ups and downs of your life. Studies show that having strong peer support helps out against stress, builds your confidence, and overall improves your well-being.
7. Ask for help when necessary
Just because you can do it all, doesn’t mean you have to do everything on your own. Some business owners are scared of assigning their tasks to someone else. We understand that it is not easy. But think about how you can focus on a bigger project, high-priority tasks, and the extra time you’ve got to find that work-life balance.
If things get tough, it's time to delegate your tasks. One of the best options is to hire a remote assistant.
