Fed up with your daily routine? Here’s how to improve your work/life balance in 2024
So, we’re once again embarking on a new year. This often gets us thinking about aspects of our lives that we would like to change (aka. New Year’s Resolutions). If you find yourself feeling stressed or burnt out, it may be time to address your work/life balance.
There are a number of reasons for poor work/life balance. These include longer working hours due to increased responsibility, poor time management or general company culture. By shifting your work/life balance, you may find yourself benefitting from improved wellness, more energy and higher productivity.
Making small changes to your daily life can help to improve your work/life balance. For example, remembering to schedule in regular breaks and making the most of the ‘time-out’ that you are allowed will help you feel more refreshed. You could even try to ensure these breaks include a quick walk or time in the fresh air. If you work from home, you may find that creating boundaries between your work and home life can be difficult. This is where you may find enforcing breaks and leaving the house particularly useful.
Remember to take advantage of your holiday allowance and plan fun activities in your down time. Exercise based activities are great for reducing stress. Planning and booking a holiday if also great for your wellbeing. This doesn’t have to be anything extravagant – just having a staycation to look forward to can work wonders for physical and mental health.
Although making small changes can help you improve your work/life balance, sometimes it takes a substantial shift to really achieve the difference you are looking for. When you evaluate your current career path, do you find yourself questioning if it’s right for you? Does it offer the kind of lifestyle you would like? Are you able to spend time doing the things you enjoy? If the answer is no, 2024 could be the year that you make a change.
