12 Steps to Strategically Balance (Integrate) Your Life and Work
A healthy work/life balance or work/life integration is probably something you really want to achieve, but it’s getting harder and harder in this Post Covid world.
The good news is that you can use your professional Strategic skills to get some balance back into your life.
Here’s how in 12 easy steps.
1. Get back the return on your Time
Just for a week, note down every activity, and you’ll see how you’re shortchanging your downtime. What time-wasting activities could you forgo so you have more time for deep relaxation and self-care?
2. Set Priorities
Set aside some time to work out what is important to you right now. Are you happy to focus on your career goals, or would you like to spend more time on more personal goals? What do you need to do less or more of? What can you do differently?
3. Set Some New Goals
Drawing on your new life priority list, set some concrete goals, and allocate time to achieving them.
4. Schedule, schedule, schedule!
Link the calendars on your smartphone or computer. Set daily and weekly tasks to help you stay on track.
Don’t forget to include self-commitments, like time for Meditation or brisk walking or gym.
5. Set Clear Boundaries
Set limits to your work and home commitments and make it clear that they are not negotiable.
Set your phone to silent mode in the evening and on weekends so you can spend quality time with your loved ones.
6. Stay Healthy
Make healthy eating a top priority. To keep yourself in maximum condition, you must start taking time to eat regular, healthy meals. No more skipping lunch!
7. Tend to Your Relationships
Relationships with family and friends need nurturing. They need your attention just as much, if not more than your job does. Schedule it.
8. Tend to Your Self
Spending quality time with those you love should include yourself! Schedule “me time” into your calendar to make sure it happens.
9. Leave Work at the Office
Break the habit of ‘just checking’ your emails at home. Close the office door behind you and switch off.
10. Explore Your Entitlements
Many companies actively support a better work/life balance by offering flexible hours, job sharing, or part-time employment. See what you’re entitled to and use it.
11. Work Smarter
Learning to say ‘no’ effectively will stand you in good stead.
12. Ask for Help
Learning to ask for help is the adult response to feeling overwhelmed. Delegating, sharing tasks, or outsourcing some responsibilities will help get your life back in balance so you can enjoy it.
