5 Easy-to-follow tips to improve work-life balance – Mr. Harish Jagtani

The term ‘work-life balance’ may seem simple, but it is quite another thing to experience in real life. We are all familiar with demands piling up on one side of the work-life scale and taking up all our precious time and, at the same time, unfulfilled dreams and desires growing on the other side. And they slowly draw us into a fuzzy feeling of discontent. So, let us find out the benefits of work-life balance because they have far-reaching consequences and are good for both you and your company.

Studies show that after employees work 50 hours or more, their output falls considerably. It drops sharply after 55 hours. They also found that workers after reaching 70 hours a week do not produce anything extra in the additional 15 hours. On the other hand, when individuals feel supported and engaged, their physiology responds with a mix of happy neurochemicals and makes them feel more connected, creative, and collaborative.

So, what should you do to make yourself feel fulfilled and engaged as a complete human being? And how do you avoid mental exhaustion and display your best self? Here are a few tips to enhance your work-life balance…

Prioritize Your Top Tasks

There are certain things on our to-do list that are more fulfilling than those most critical and anxiety-inducing responsibilities. If you focus on these first, you will feel more accomplished and productive throughout the day. This will also help you go home with a peaceful mind.

Plan Personal Time in Advance

Connect with family and friends more to make sure your personal time is fulfilling. You may connect digitally, but try to meet them physically, as well. Take time off electronic gadgets for a certain amount of time every day or over the weekend so that you can give your full attention to your loved ones and try to enjoy the activities that have more importance in your life. Experts say that we should try to follow a routine that includes some amount of time for ourselves that is not related to our jobs.

Balance can be tricky to achieve. But you can try the above-mentioned steps to find ways to make work feel less consuming. And make time to pursue some other passion in your life—some hobby or sport even during challenging times.

Add Exercise to Your Routine

Regular exercise is very healthy and is recommended by doctors always. It can even bring a visible improvement in your productivity. Similar to finishing important tasks early in the day, going for a run or working out can provide you with a sense of achievement and take you through the remaining of the day. This list of ideas will hopefully help you find and reach your goal of finding a better work-life balance.

Pursue Any Passion or Hobby

Dedicating time, resources and effort to something that you are passionate about is a very good way of boosting your morale while also making a meaningful impact within your society. Giving back can be rewarding and provide you with a sense of purpose that goes beyond your office and home.

Take Breaks Regularly

Taking breaks regularly is very important because they help you recharge your batteries and prepare for the responsibilities ahead. This might include taking time away from your desk if your schedule allows and also getting enough sleep at night. Don’t burn the candle at both ends because it may bring a short-term boost to production, but will be counter-productive in the long run.
