Your personal life can be greatly affected by the work life you lead. Nowadays, your work life seems likely to invade your personal life and it may be increasingly difficult to balance the two. The cost of working overtime or spending your waking hours concerned about work can be significant.

When you’re constantly putting more time into your career as opposed to your personal life, fatigue sets in and it may become harder for you to keep up your professional reputation. Take the time to consider ways to find just the right balance that’s best for you. Here are a few suggestions to begin drawing that dividing line between work and your personal life.

  • Manage your time and keep a to-do list of things that you need to get done. Don’t concern yourself with fitting everything in, and complete what is important enough to go on your list.
  • Don’t take your work home with you. Even with the technology to be connected to your work at any time of the day, you can create boundaries and conscious decisions to leave your work in your briefcase.
  • Create plans in your schedule to go on a date with your partner or a movie night with friends. Having something to look forward to will help you manage your time so you don’t have to reschedule.
  • Learn to say no. Don’t feel obligated to take on everything that comes your way, whether it’s coordinating an activity at your children’s school, or undertaking an extra project from your co-worker.  You will have more time for things that you enjoy once you stop obliging to things that you’re guilted into.
  • Take care of yourself. Make it part of your daily routine to eat healthy and exercise. Physical activity such as yoga can relieve stress and keep you feeling great. You can also discover activities that you can engage in with your family such as biking or swimming.
