As humans, we have deadlines to meet with at work that we forget to have a social life. This later affects our health. Every adult should learn how to balance work life with social life.
Below are some tips on how to strike a balance between work life and social life:
Prioritise your time
We all work with a to-do list, so prioritise the important things in your list. Put the urgent and important ones as the ones on the top of the list, the important but not urgent as next, urgent but not important as next and neither important nor urgent as the last on the list.
Identify your strengths
Focus on your strengths and outsource the others. When you outsource to others, you are able to get things done faster and you will have time for other things. This will also allow you to focus on other things outside work.
Have some personal time
Ensure you have a ‘me’ time for yourself and stick to it. This allows you to strike a balance between work and your social life. It is okay to hang out with friends, take time out with your family, go for that medical check- up.
Do what you love
Make time for something you love other than work and give it the time it deserves. It will energise and refresh you, and enable you to nurture the creative thought that is essential to every business owner.
You cannot afford to say yes to every request or you will be drained. If your colleagues think they have access to you anytime, they will definitely take you for granted. You will always have things to do that are not in your schedule, hence, leaving you with little time for yourself. If you need to say no, say it, you must not say yes always.
Today, most of us get distracted time to time by using Facebook, Twitter, or checking our mobile phones all the time. These things can distract you from the work you may be doing, and can take lot more time than usual to finish tasks. At the end of the day, when you are not done with particular tasks, this may leave you stressed. So, focus is very important to complete one task and move to another.
