Don’t Forget About Personal Time

January 11, 2010

Today I read a great blog post by Shannon Reed about the importance of finding the right work-life balance. She gave great tips, like remembering to read for pleasure, not just work or school. Reading her blog made me wish how I could have an automatic “off” switch that would work the minute I leave the office so that I could concentrate on family, friends and fun. This would be especially helpful when there is a large amount of stress resulting whatever may be going on at work.

I think that a work-life balance is most important when things are really tough at work. Whenever there are really stressful days it is vital that you go home and do whatever it is that you do that makes you happy. Read a book, take a walk with the kids, or chill out with the TV and some ice-cream…

Managing can be stressful and it is very hard not to take work home with you. The higher up you go in the food chain, the more responsibilities you will have and the more you need to focus on a good work-life balance. Mastering this ability now will help all of us budding business people and even higher-ups in their future endeavors.

Any suggestions or advice on how you balance your work-life schedule would be greatly appreciated!!
