Working a full time job and being able to enjoy the time after work can be tough. Too much focus on work can lead to stress that makes it hard to enjoy life. Here are a few tips on how to maintain a good work life balance!
Calendar. Use a calendar to plan your days. Giving yourself time to work, complete household chores, and relax is important. For tips on using a calendar see my post here.
Free time. Schedule in free time for relaxation – working hard for your many goals isn’t fun if you can’t enjoy some TV, a good book, or some time on the phone with a friend!
Prioritize. Make sure to prioritize your goals. Outside of work, what are the most important things you want to get done? Complete the items of most importance right when you get home or during your lunch break. After those items, smaller tasks can fill in during the evening.
Weekends. Enjoy the weekends! Don’t just cram your weekends full with the things you couldn’t do during the week. Remember, you work a lot during the rest of the week! Take the time to enjoy your days off. Make sure to get some quality relaxation time to recharge for the new week ahead.
