If you’re stressed about the coming holiday season, you aren’t alone. With the 2020 holiday season featuring unprecedented issues and challenges, you might be wondering how to balance responsibilities at work and at home. The good news is you can take steps to keep your stress levels down while ensuring nothing falls through the cracks.
Here are some of Accurate Personnel’s tips on ensuring a positive work-life balance during the most wonderful time of the year:
When you’re overwhelmed, it’s easy to imagine that all tasks are equally important. However, the truth is that some items on your to-do list are far less important than others. If you want to maintain a healthy work-life balance this holiday season, start by learning to prioritize. While work projects that are due in the next few months are among the most crucial, you should also give yourself time for moments with family and friends. Along with being special, these experiences are crucial to your emotional and mental health.
Spend Less Time Online
If you’re feeling short on time, the issue might be that you’re not using your waking hours as wisely as you could be. One of the biggest time-wasters might be your online habits. If you’re spending hours checking email or scrolling through Facebook and Instagram, you might want to rethink this behavior. Save time (and your sanity) by setting a limit on the number of hours a day you spend on social media.
With an increasing number of employees working remotely these days, it’s all too easy to have issues with work-life balance. In particular, many workers struggle to set boundaries and wind up checking email and performing job functions when they’re supposed to be spending time with friends and loved ones. If you want to find balance during the holidays, make it a point to stop working or responding to job correspondence after a certain hour. You’ll have more time to rest, recharge, and enjoy your day.
