Life becomes tiring and boring when you have no time either for yourself or your family and friends. This leads to the built-up of frustration, anger and feeling of loneliness. Says clinical psychologist Seema Hingorrany, “There is a high probability of your relationships going through a tough phase when you do not compartmentalise between your
work and personal life.”
Schedule work at office:
When at work, make sure that you not only complete your tasks on time but also list out how you are going to go about it. Whether it is preparing for a meeting, or making a presentation — when you schedule your work according to the time slotted, you will be able to work faster and also deliver brilliant results.
If you are going slow on tracks, reschedule:
At times following a particular schedule does become difficult, so a better way to ensure that you complete your tasks on time is by rescheduling it to the next day. Adds Hingorrany, “For example you have an urgent meeting at work but you’ve also made plans with your spouse for dinner, send a text or give a call or rather send a bouquet of flowers with a note saying you will be home late but will make up for it. This way you will avoid the trouble of having a fight at home and also ruining your own mood.
When at home, don’t think about work:
The most important thing that you need to do to ensure that you. So busy we are with our work life that we tend to carry it home with us on weekends or holidays. There can be nothing more frustrating for your family/friends other than this. Though you might it pretty difficult in the beginning, but learn to wipe your mind off work once you reach home.
Talk to loved ones as much as you can:
There’s no better way of relieving stress other than communicating to your near and dear ones after a rough day at work. Though a lot of people like to stay alone and do things alone after a tiring day at work, yet make it a point to talk to your near and dear ones whenever you get time. Remember that the energy you spend at office shouldn’t become a punishment for your family.
Prepare for the day:
One of the ways you can easily strike a balance between the two is by making sure that you have everything planned for the day. Whether it is listing down things that you need to do at work or when you get back home. This list will help you engage yourself better at your duties without bugging you about what you need to prioritise.
Make you holidays memorable:
Whether you’ve gone for a vacation or at home on the weekends, do something with your family every time. For example, you can prepare good food or invite relatives over or maybe go out for a long drive. Most couples have fights because their spouse does not have the time to go out with them or plan a vacation due to work. To avoid this, make sure that the time that you get to spend with your partner
Points to remember:
Make sure that you stay connected with your spouse/partner through emails and messages. Take up a hobby like going to the gym, playing chess, practicing yoga or meditation so that you are not too stressed with work. Help your spouse over the weekend. For example, prepare meals or do housework together
