What your boundaries look like is often determined by the nature of your relationships—just don’t forget that managing your energy is just as important as managing your time.
Make sure that you are taking the time to do things that you enjoy, including meditation, reading, exercising, and traveling.
Making time for you will require you to set and maintain healthy boundaries. Remember, people who respect and love you will understand.
Why Work-Life Balance Really Matters
There is a strong likelihood that when things are amiss, we are not producing our best work and we are making unnecessary mistakes.
No matter how much you may want or need to do something, if you don’t take the time to evaluate and re-energize, you will eventually experience some form of burnout.
The most effective way to balance work and life is to be aware of how you feel and why.
If you feel as if you are in a perpetual tug-of-war with yourself then it is time to step back and reprioritize.
Just as social media has immortalized the phrase, “Let’s work;” it is equally important that we celebrate, “Let’s rest.”
