Despite advances in technology supposedly making life easier, we work harder and longer than ever. Shift work and weekend work also add to the inequality of demands on our time. Many of us consequently suffer from a poor work life balance, with work taking the lion’s share. If you’re happy working every hour God sends, good for you. If not, here’s how to get a better work life balance:
1. Stay Away from Emails
You can achieve a better work life balance by making the conscious effort to stay away from your emails outside of work hours. Two or three messages from colleagues or clients can suck you straight back in to work mode for an entire evening. Give yourself the evening off and get back to them first thing in the morning.
