Work occupies a lot of our life, and sometimes the balance between work and life can swing too much the wrong way. The good news however is that you can achieve a better work/life balance by following a few simple tips and making more time for the things that really matter to you.
Changing your balance does not need to be massively difficult. Setting goals that are realistic, like getting out of the office earlier one night a week, can still make a significant difference. Try to slowly build activities that matter to you into your schedule, such as an annual weekend getaway with your spouse or one hour of the week on a cherished hobby.
Even finding just ten to fifteen minutes to yourself on a hectic day to listen to music, go for a walk or read a trashy novel, can help to recharge your batteries. Little things can account for a lot of our enjoyment in life, and need to be made time for.
