It is #Lockdown Part 5 here and it’s Monday again! Bet you didn’t realise that 😀 Here are some tips on working from home while maintaining #worklifebalance
Here are my 10 nuggets of wisdom on maintaining Work Life Balance during #Workingfromhome during this #Lockdown
Do check out my previous post on what all I have learnt while switching into this new way of life. And tips on managing work from home
How to maintain Work Life Balance While Working From Home
🌟 Work Out a schedule with your partner
Work up a schedule with your spouse / partner and plan your work day commitments, try to schedule your work calls/ meetings in a way that it doesn’t clash and one of you can be with the kids when the other one is upper busy. Keep each other informed of your work goals for the day.
🌟 Switch off at a Fixed Time
Switch off at a fixed time, don’t let the work load cloud your whole day. It is relaxing to switch off & spend time with family.
🌟 Find a time when you can work without being disturbed
Finish your important projects etc at a time when you are sure you won’t be disturbed. This could be after you put kids to bed etc. this clashes with the above rule thus ensure that you don’t end up doing everything. I just finish things that are very important or need me to concentrate a lot at night sometimes.
Have a family or a friends call after work hours.
🌟 Do something Fun
Try to keep up one of your hobbies, whatever makes you relax.
🌟 Do some physical Activity
Keep up some physical activity, do something that keeps you healthy and happy, even for half an hour.
🌟 Share with your partner & family
Talk to your partner about their work day and talk about your own with them. You may not be socialising but doesn’t mean you don’t have things you need to share.
🌟Have Dinner on time
🌟 No work on Weekends
Don’t work on weekends if your work doesn’t entail working weekends. It’s easy to blur the lines & keep working as you are WFH. Stop that.
Last Tip: USELESS ADVICE:
Go to sleep on time & don’t spend nights binge watching everything on Netflix, Amazon Prime & Hotstar 😜.
