Balance between work and personal life – striving for balance

To achieve heights in a career, for a quick descent to the top, you need an unusually large amount of strength, energy and, importantly, time.

Scrooge Syndrome from Deckens’ Christmas Story. Realities

All of us understand this entertaining story, at least since the time of the school curriculum: a workaholic hunks who have no time for their family are going through fantastic adventures on Christmas Eve. The story is undoubtedly interesting, but still, in the first place, we are more interested in the main character – a person who wants nothing but work, as well as benefits, which are alien to family warmth and friendly participation. Regrettable image, right? But it is highly likely that this is how you will look in the eyes of the people around you if you cannot maintain a balance between work and personal life.

So how do you avoid this outcome? Not to turn into a successful, but still lonely careerist or, for example, give yourself completely to your family, but nevertheless, regret unfulfilled dreams? The answer is simple – balance. Yes, exactly so – do not try to choose one thing, combine. Work is undoubtedly good, commendable, but you also need to pay attention to those close to people.

First, realize that it’s quite realistic to not be limited to one of the evils. Look at the example of many people, for example, Bill Gates. Yes, he is undoubtedly a “beast” in relation to work: a hard worker, whom you still need to look for, but nevertheless, he is considered the most sensitive and exemplary family man. What is the secret? Just remember that you can build a successful career always and everywhere, it would be a desire, but a warm, trusting relationship is very easy to lose.

Properly set priorities are half the battle.
To maintain the right balance of work and personal life, you do not need to use too sophisticated methods or techniques. First, the realization that something needs to be changed is enough. It is necessary to proceed only based on internal priority aspirations and, of course, your own desires. Now, we offer you the top 3 tips for maintaining a balance between home and your favorite work:

Unleash your own potential and delegate responsibilities. At its core, the secret is simple – don’t be afraid to ask for help when you really need it. If you understand that you are not coping, then do not hesitate to ask for help. Man is not omnipotent; he physically cannot keep up always and everywhere. We all have moments when you don’t know where to go further or moments when you simply doubt yourself.

At such moments, contact your loved ones, give yourself a break from work. Learn to disconnect from work, at least for a short time. Since during the rest you can not only relax, but also get a significant portion of inspiration, which can come in handy for further work achievements;

The right priorities. When setting priorities, the main thing is to be guided first of all by your internal thoughts: “What do I really want?”. Ask yourself a few questions of this kind – and you will understand what is the best strategy for you to choose. To maintain a balance between work and personal life, some people need to get more family warmth, and some need vice versa, more tasks regarding work, but more difficult.

To visually visualize your desires, all you need is just to take a blank sheet of paper and a pen. Draw a sheet in half, into two sectors – “Work” and “Personal life”. Write in each sector all your wishes and plans regarding this or that activity. In the end, you will see exactly where you want to realize yourself, based on your personal requirements.

Plan your every day. Yes, such a statement may seem boring, with a touch of light snobbery. However, it is precisely this method that is the most popular, as well as the most effective, for maintaining a balance of work and personal life.

Schedule your day, strictly delimiting time for both work and leisure, while in no case should you spend your free time from one period to another. That is, if you decide to relax, then do this only at the scheduled time and vice versa. Thus, you develop the habit of not intersecting rest and work, but at the same time clearly delimiting it, which will allow you to avoid extremes.
