Five Ways to Add Balance to Your Work and Personal Life

Are you constantly buried under piles of responsibilities, events, and work-related tasks?  Do you need a break for some self-care?  When you are always doing something, you will eventually start to feel burnt out.  Taking care of yourself is essential for living a healthy, happy, and balanced life.  When you live at our apartments for rent in Ft Myers, FL, you have access to many features and amenities that enhance your lifestyle.  These are a few ways to enjoy the amenities and restore work-life balance in your life.

Make Time for Fun and Relaxation

When you are traveling for work, take some time to do some research about your new location, city, or community.  Create a list of things you want to do when you are there, and make sure that you pencil them into your schedule so that they become a priority.  Writing down all your events will help you make a game plan so that you can accomplish everything you need to.  Without taking the time to plan and schedule out your time, you may end up missing events, becoming overworked, or double booking your days.

Stay Focused at Work

One of the best ways to accomplish as much as you can when you are working is to avoid distractions at your desk.  Remove any distractions from your workspace.  Keep your cell phone in a drawer so that you are not tempted by any texts or phone calls you may receive and place all work tasks directly in front of you.  This will allow you to be more productive when you are setting aside time to work.

Create a Productive Workspace

By creating an effective and productive space to accomplish work, you will be able to get more tasks done during the day.  If you have an untidy workspace, you may find it difficult to stay focused and attentive to tasks that you need to do.  A clean and organized workspace is the best way to truly focus on each day’s tasks without distractions.

Take Your PTO

Many people do not take advantage of their PTO or their vacation days.  They may take the day off, but still find themselves logging into their email to check on work-related things.  Avoid doing this.  Take your vacation days and enjoy your holidays without worrying about what is going on at work.  You can deal with it when you return to the office fully refreshed after your days off.

Set Boundaries

If you are struggling with work-life balance, you should first sit down and set clear boundaries.  Set a schedule that works for both your work and your home life.  When it comes time to log out of work for the day, you should truly unplug your devices, stop checking your email, and stop answering your phone.  Dedicate the time off work to some of the must-do things at your new apartment.

These are a few ways that you can start to add balance into your life so that you avoid burnout.  By living in our apartments for rent in Ft Myers, FL, you can enjoy the amenities and close proximity to work so that you can restore that balance.  Contact us to schedule your tour of our complex today.
