How are you going to achieve a better work-life balance in 2019? Hopefully you’ve already started implementing some better work-life balance practices, like not opening your laptop when you’re home at your Lake Jackson luxury apartments. If you haven’t started working to achieve a better work-life balance, allow us to help. In the blog post below, we’ll be telling residents how to live a more balanced life in 2019.
It’s hard to achieve work-life balance in a day and age when we’re constantly connected to our work emails, but it is possible. You’ll have to be willing to disconnect, and willing to learn how to work more efficiently. If you follow the advice in the blog post below, however, we think you’ll be just fine.
Now that we’ve gotten the intro out of the way, let’s jump right into the list of work-life balance tips! Oh, and when you’re done reading through the list, please be sure to share the link to this page with your friends and neighbors at Plantation Park — the luxury apartments Lake Jackson residents choose for a more upscale living experience.
Tip 1. Fill up your calendar.
If you're having trouble leaving work on time, try filling your calendar with after work events. We’re talking about happy hour dates that start at 5:30 or yoga classes that start at 5:15. The more of these events you have on your calendar, the more excuses you have to actually leave work on time.
Tip 2. Work to your strengths.
Do you find that you’re most productive in the morning? If so, start working on your hardest tasks right away when you get into the office. Some people are more productive in the late afternoon, and those people should wait to work on their harder tasks until they’re feeling efficient. Working to your strengths is one of the best ways to improve your efficiency and work fewer hours.
Tip 3. Leave the laptop in the bag.
We talked about this tip in the beginning of our blog post, but it’s worth mentioning again. When you get home at night, resist the urge to take your laptop back out of your work bag. Your laptop is basically a portal to more work, which is why it’s the last thing you should have out when you’re trying to relax at the end of the day. If you need to use a laptop at home, consider getting a second one that won’t remind you of the office.
