Secrets to Balancing Home & Work Life

Enjoy this article courtesy of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition!

Here are five tips to help you bring your home and work life into balance:

1 – Care for yourself

  • You cannot continue doing work or being present for others at home or at work in any dedicated way if you are not well taken care of.
  • Allow yourself to be appropriately and highly compensated for your good work.
  • Build time into your schedule to indulge in things you love to do that nourish you.

2 – Establish good boundaries – at home and at work

  • Establish working and non-working hours, and honor your word regarding your schedule.
  • Clearly communicate guidelines for how and when to reach you outside of these hours if necessary.
  • Healthy boundaries will improve your quality of life and relationships with others.

3 – Batch similar activities together

  • Conserve your energy by limiting the amount of “back and forth” between tasks.
  • Maintain focus and dedication to similar tasks so you can ride the momentum and improve efficiency.

4 – Get support from your family and friends

  • Communicate your vision and goals, and include ways in which they can help.
  • Getting family and friends on board with your vision will help you stay accountable.

5 – Create a three-year plan to achieve your desired income level

  • A plan with goals and action steps will help keep you on track.
  • An action plan with clearly defined and measurable objectives allows you to monitor your progress and make adjustments when necessary.
