Work-Life balance working from home, 3 easy ways to achieve it.
Achieving a work-life balance when working from home can be a challenge. It takes careful planning and thought. When we think of work-life balance we conjure up an image of both being equal in harmony and the time spent being equal on both sides. However, this is unrealistic and keeps you feeling overwhelmed trying to achieve the unachievable.
Work-life balance working from home will look different for each of us and can change, daily.
The following tips can help you find that balance:
1. Let go of perfection.
Stay mindful of the fact that you are working in a different environment and adjustments must be made. It is time to adapt and do the best you can with where and what you have. A mental shift in this direction will make a big difference.
This is where you need to have the most resolve. Give yourself time to switch off from work, as there will be the temptation to stay working. It can be hard to stand up and walk away, when you no longer have to worry about traffic or picking up kids. So, choose a finishing time and stick to it.
3. Build a practice to ease in and out of your day.
The commute to and from work can be a time your brain uses to prepare for the day and release and decompress afterwards. Just taking 10 minutes before work to breathe and mentally prepare before work and 10 minutes to decompress afterwards.
Any strategy to find a work-life balance will be unique to you. Be kind to yourself in the process.
