Work-Life balance is a concept that emphasizes the importance of establishing priorities in one's professional (career and ambitions) and personal life (health, relaxation, aspirations, family, personal development)—the conflict between the two can cause unnecessary stress.

Mentor Coach , 7 Ways I Will Ensure a Work-life Balance

1) Limit social media intake 

Even though it is tempting to social media chat, stalk those who have already gone to vacation scuba diving with dolphins, or have just changed a relationship status to metaphysical, you need to go offline until you finish your job.

If you are a freelancer, and your home is your working space, read this paragraph three times.

Self-control is equally vital for your free time. Your colleagues have to be aware you have a private life. It’s not your responsibility to be available 24/7. One hour has sixty ways how to not obsess about your job.

2) Read

Books are great because they don’t leave you when you love them. Books are also great because you can find sentences there that precisely articulate how you feel. In the context of separating your professional self from personal self, books are great because they allow you to be both concentrated and relaxed and be more introspective.

3) Spend QUALITY time with friends

After a long and exhausting day at work, some people want to have dinner and go to bed. If you do this over a long period, it is going to induce monotony in your life. Accept the phone calls from your friends. Plan your weekends. Three hours of pure fun is much more valuable than 8 hours of watching TV.

4) Get enough sleep

If you sleep regularly (7 hours minimum), you will be happier, more optimistic, and willing to face new challenges. When we are in a bad mood, we are much likely to be less productive. Save yourself from sleep deprivation and be the worker you want to see in the office.

5) Exercise regularly

Working out is the best antidote for working your ass off. Fitness activities are mandatory, especially If you have a tight schedule, because they are the best stress relief.

Stress is perhaps the word pronounced most similarly in the highest number of languages, for a reason. It is the biggest enemy of a modern man.

6) Avoid intimate relationships with colleagues

If you fall in love with a co-worker, make sure you separate his personal from his professional behaviour. From time to time, it might get confusing to deal with the discrepancy. 

Many companies intimate workplace relationships. 

Interpersonal relationships fluctuate over time and tend to reduce the productivity of the organization.

7) Set priorities

Prioritize considering the circumstances. If you are only working to pay your bills, you are not going to be efficient. Don’t be afraid of the change. 

Modern life dynamic gives you more space to explore hidden niches of your professional identity, be careful not to turn into a slave of your own goals.
