Work-life balance

Work-life balance

Define what a balanced life looks like to you before you can work towards a better work-life balance.

To define a work-life balance, write out the things that are important to you on a list and prioritise them. 

The majority of people will put friends and family as their number one, and then their health as number two.

Stop multi-tasking

Wherever you are, be focused on what's in front of you.

When you're interrupted, it takes 15-20 minutes to get your focus back to it was before being distracted. If you're multi-tasking, you'll be less efficient and your long term memory will suffer.

Say NO more often

It's tough to say no: you'll want to naturally please your superior asking for a favor, and avoid the discomfort that comes with saying no to the request.

Knowing your priorities helps with this: Let your boss know that you have plans, but you have several other time slots where you'd love to be able to help out.

Exercise

Individuals who exercised regularly are more confident in handling the interaction of their work and home life and are less likely to be stressed at work.

Something as simple as a 30-minute walk can release endorphins, helping you battle stress throughout the rest of your day.

Set an alarm to go to bed

If you don't get enough sleep, you won't function at your best, causing you to spend longer amounts of time on tasks at work. 

One simple way to get around this is for you to set an alarm to go to bed, 30-minutes before you want to be asleep  -this will give you ample time to wrap up what you're doing, and get ready for bed.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
