Top 10 tips for a good work-life balance

1.     Manage your time well

Schedule your workload and have clear boundaries.

Find your peak times of productivity. Maintaining a schedule and sticking to it can help boost your performance long-term.


2.     Take regular breaks

You can even switch tasks if one becomes too taxing and come back to it later when you’re feeling more focused. Step away from your desk and try not to make a habit of eating lunch there. Go outside and get some fresh air!


3.     Don’t overstretch your capacity

Don’t be afraid to ask for more time or say no to taking on too much work. Nobody wants you to burn out, least of all you!


4.     Prioritise your mental and physical health

Your overall well-being can have a real impact on your productivity.

Take a moment to get out into nature or simply step away from screens to focus on yourself.


5.     Perfection is a myth

Strive to keep improving and learn from your peers.


6.     Celebrate your win, no matter how small

Each success is another step towards your goals!


7.     Find time to connect with others and have fun

You’ll spend a lot of time with your workmates so take the time to get to know each other.


8.     Leave work at work


9.     Talk to your manager

      They are there to help.


10.  Book holidays as and when you can

      Time to rest, recuperate and relax is the least you deserve.
