Today’s tip: Create more work-Life balance

Your life revolves around your workplace and it’s stressing you out. Injecting more personal time into your life is essential, but not always easy.

Try This:

Follow these important steps and ensure you’re committing yourself to work-life balance:

  • Include personal tasks in your planner’s daily priorities – don’t be reactive with your personal time
  • Set and pursue 3-5 personal goals at the beginning of each month
  • Track how you spend your time – finish each day by recording personal activities in your planner
  • Increase your personal time by cutting back mindless TV and internet browsing
  • Minimize your commitments to others
  • Eat well, sleep well – live healthier and increase your energy levels during off-work hours

Here’s Why:

Having healthy work-life balance is a key to life. It puts you on the right path to living a rewarding personal life with family, friends and self-interests. Additionally, it makes you a more productive and stress-free employee.

Remember, having work-life balance requires that you plan your personal time the same way you do at work. Find a planner to help you track your activities at daytimer.com.
