Well, with the growing advancement of technology, it seems to have become almost impossible to have a healthy life work balance. In fact, some surveys have shown that a whopping 94% employees work for more than 50 hours a week. What’s even more surprising is that almost half of them work for more than 65 hours a week.
So how do you ensure the much needed work and life balance? Well, some Indian employers like Anand Mishra CEO (Star Infranet) try to have a healthy work-life balance in their workplace, and you can consider following some tips that seem to be the foundation of their ideal work-life balance.
Avoiding a Perfectionist Attitude
Many employees, in the hopes of getting into the spotlight or getting a boost in their career, try to do everything in the best way possible. While it may be easy and effective to have a perfectionist attitude at work for a particular important project, trying to do it all the time is surely going to take a toll on your work-life balance.
In fact, if you don’t let go of perfectionism in time, it may become destructive. You may find yourself struggling to get the assigned work done in time, and this may create a whole lot of other problems too.
Not Working When You Are Not Supposed to!
Technological advancements have made employees accessible around the clock. However, sending work emails or talking to clients in your off hours can seriously affect the quality of your life.
You need to ensure that “quality time” truly stays “quality time”, and to ensure it, you may even want to consider shutting your phone off when you plan to have some quality time with your family.
Exercising and Meditation
When we get busy, we don’t care trying to have some time for exercising and meditation. However, both these things may go a long way in reducing stress in your life as well as improving your productivity, and in turn, ensuring a better work-life balance. Hence, you may want to find some time for these activities, too.
