Achieving work life balance in a high-stress workplace
Is your work life crossing over into your personal life? Yes? Then now is the time to fix it, before you and your family are affected. When your profession starts to encroach on your personal life, all sorts of problems can arise such as relationship, health and money complications.
No matter what your career is or how many extra commitments you have, creating a healthy balance between work and play is essential when it comes to leading a happy and productive lifestyle. But it’s not always easy.
There isn’t one single formula to achieving a healthy work life balance. It is a personal decision on how to combine career, partners, children, friends and oneself, however you shouldn’t feel discouraged to ask for help! Employees who can balance their work, family and life commitments have been shown to be happier in their job and have a happy home.
A couple of ways to achieve this is by getting organised and build a great support network (this is where you can ask for help, ME!). Don’t forget to enjoy quality family time but also create sometime for yourself, also be flexible, you don’t have to have everything prearranged at specific timeframes.
One particular industry that could manage work life balance better, is our health industry. Did you know employees in the health industry are amongst the most stressed of any profession?! Stress is a natural human response to pressure, when faced with challenging and sometimes dangerous situations, both in the workplace and home. That pressure is not only about what’s happening around us, but often also about demands we place on ourselves.
Whether you are a Doctor, Specialist, nurse, assistant or pursuing a career in the health industry, stress is all around. Wouldn’t you like to spend more quality time with your family (when you’re not working) and not have the worry of your to do list? That’s where we come in…
This month I have a great offer for you – “A PA for your lifestyle”, where we organise, itemise and tick off your to do list. You can purchase 20 hours a month for $1,200 or 10 hours for $650 (did you ever think you could have your own PA for less than $8k a year). As today’s busy lifestyle seems permanently on fast forward. Can you imagine buying back time with a phone call? Or your day running smoothly as you take care of only those tasks on your to-do list that you love most, minus the usual stress of not having enough time in the day. Sound impossible? It’s not when you have me on speed dial.
Until next time, stay healthy, have fun, and keep your life in balance.
