Work/life balance is something that many people desire but few are able to achieve. There is no perfect, one-size-fits-all balance you should be striving to achieve. A successful work/life balance isn’t about completely separating your work life and your home life, but finding ways to integrate the two. Based on that notion, the founders of CEO Real Talk have offered actionable ways to improve your work/life balance today.
- Recognize the role of work – Work plays an important part in life – it keeps the lights on, pays them mortgage and funds vacations. Adopting the right mindset allows you to enjoy the fruits of your labor.
- Learn to breathe – Work can be so demanding that you experience anxiety or become overwhelmed, causing you to literally or figuratively hold your breath. Relax. Release. Breathe. Slowing down and breathing gives you the opportunity to regroup and assess where you are.
- Be present and consistent – Being present requires you to be attentive at home at work and during free time. The quality of being present makes a significant positive impact on your surroundings. Being consistent requires you to realize that what you do every day matters and where you spend your time and energy has a direct connection to how successful you are in achieving work/life balance.
