I’m sure that many of us have heard the phrase “work-life balance.”
But, what does this mean?
It is a concept that has been around for decades, but it’s never clear to anyone how to achieve.
In this blog post I am going to explore the intersection of your personal and professional life and share some tips on how you can find work-life balance!
First, understand what you want.
Figure out what is important to you and how your personal life affects your professional one.
Second, create a plan that works for everyone involved:
a) What do I need from my employer?
b) What do I need in order to be happy with myself?
c) How can we make this happen without causing undue stress on the organization or me?
This might mean taking some time off of work, working part-time at home instead of full time away from home, negotiating flexible hours with supervisors if needed, etc.
It also means being open about your needs so people know they are respected and valued!
