How can I improve my work-life balance?
Improving your work-life balance is easier than you may think. Try making changes to these 5 key areas of your working life to improve your overall health and wellbeing.
Make sure you prioritise healthy working hours
Frequently working long working days without substantial rest will negatively impact your health. A full-time worker should be working around 38 hours per week. If your days are longer than 8 hours of work, consider reducing the number of hours you are actively working.
Flexi hours or part-time could help you get more rest.
If reducing your working hours isn’t an option, consider reducing the number of days you work. You might consider looking into a 9 or 8 day fortnight to give yourself adequate rest time away from work.
Trouble Sleeping? Your working hours might be the culprit.
If you are struggling to maintain a healthy sleep schedule, your working hours could be the culprit. A job that has set shift times during the daylight hours is the easiest way to ensure your body develops
Working hard or hardly working?
Having a job that doesn’t cause you frequent, high amounts of stress will make your working days more manageable. We all experience difficult days at work, but if you find yourself constantly dreading work, it might be time to consider a new job.
If your workplace or job is causing you high amounts of stress and anxiety you should bring these concerns to your employer.
Get involved with social events
Bonding with your co-workers can be a great way to reduce workplace stress and inject some fun into your working life. Try getting involved in any social events and team bonding activities that your workplace offers. Hanging out with co-workers outside of the office can help you get to know each other on a personal level and deepen your bonds.
