5 Tips to help you maintain a work-life balance

Written by Michelle Mook on . Posted in Sunflower Diaries

Six in 10 (63%) employers have increased the level of support they offer staff across one or more areas of mental, financial, physical and social wellbeing during the Covid-19 pandemic.

This is according to a survey of 505 HR decision makers by GRiD. The mental health of staff was ranked as their number one priority.

What are you doing to make work-life balance a priority for you?

Now more than ever, it is so important to maintain a work-life balance. We know this, we’ve learnt this from first-hand experience, yet we still need reminding.

The personal and professional parts of our lives are both important, neither should be neglected.

1. Healthy body, health mind

That’s regular exercise and eating healthy. Work on getting some really good sleep.

2. Maintain your Mental Health

If you notice that you have been acting out of character lately then it may be time to start assessing your work-life balance or seeking help.

• Take breaks and fully switch off.

• Do a job you actually enjoy.

• Build good, valuable, supportive relationships.

• Give yourself things to look forward to.

• Add meaning in your life.

3. Review your productivity.

Are those long hours getting the best out of you really? You might be putting the time in but could your contribution be better? It’s not productive to overdo it.

4. Become a more well-rounded person

Read newspapers, books and magazines, listen to podcasts and TED talks, sign up for classes and attend cultural events. Spend time with friends and family. If you invest in personal development, you’ll not only stand out as intelligent, experienced and interesting but you’ll be able to share those experiences and knowledge with other people.

5. One life – go for it!

Live it to the fullest. Follow your passions.

All of this comes up time and time again in the coaching conversations we have. We can help you gain clarity, unravel the spaghetti, shine a light through the fog and support you. That’s why we love what we do in coaching and mentoring, it’s our passion.

And, there’s funding available for coaching and mentoring you if you are in the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding or the Leeds City Region.

These are just a few examples of the kinds of activities that will help you to maintain a better work-life balance but really, it’s all about finding out what YOU want to do and attempting the balance that with your working life too.

Just remember, you only get one life, so you might as well enjoy it.
