A significant challenge that I hear from my clients is achieving that all too well-known and talked about “work-life balance” (WLB). In a Wellness for Life program that I recently taught, we discussed WLB in much detail. It seems that no matter what we do in life there are stressors that bind us to the same routines day after day. It’s definitely frustrating that our personal and professional lives aren’t moving in the direction we expected or might even be at a standstill.
Current research suggests that maintaining this balance requires structure and the ability for people to think differently about themselves. This requires us to say “no” more often to people and tasks that disrupt the balance we’re seeking. We should be asking if they are important to our individual well-being. I have been utilizing a proven method to accurately assess what we should be concentrating on. For example, we may need to consider changing jobs, ending a toxic relationship or planning some dedicated time each day and focus on an activity that we enjoy and is for us.
I know what you’re thinking. How am I supposed to do that?
