Are you able to keep a healthy balance?
For some people, maintaining a balance between their work and personal lives can be difficult. This week in my #CJJblog I want to give you some tips on how you can keep both sides of the coin as healthy as possible. Work can get extremely busy, while your personal relationships can suffer. It doesn’t have to be this way. Here are some ideas for you to focus on if you are one of those individuals who may have fallen into a rut. Enjoy.
- Spending quality time with your family should not be taken for granted. Don’t be distracted by work when you are at home. Put your phone away, no computer, and just be there. Create memories and traditions with your loved ones. What traditions do you have with your family?
- Remember priorities. Work hard at your job, but always remember what really matters most. Maybe keep a picture of your family on your desk, or have a daily phone call at lunch with your spouse. Stay connected with your family at all times.
- Take care of yourself. This will increase your self-esteem and allow your mind to stay focused on the task at hand. Don’t make excuses and always stay vigilant. How do you take care of yourself?
- Family is priority number one. Treat family events as appointments that you can’t miss. Work around things at your job, while maintaining presence at home. Attend kids events, date nights, and family dinners. How do you prioritize your family?
- Improve organizational skills. Delegate tasks out to others when necessary. Train others to fill in at work for you when you’re out at family functions. Make sure your schedule is air tight and you don’t miss anything.
- Praise family members. Thank you’s and congratulations go a long way with our family members. Recognize others for their accomplishments and let them know you care deeply about them. Don’t take them for granted. How do you praise your family?
- Be best version of yourself. Be there, be present, and always give your full attention to the current task. How can you stay consistent?
