We are already into 2020, and most of us will have implemented our New Year’s Resolutions. As part of your resolutions, pursuing a healthy work – life balance should be a goal to work to. Some of us vow to eat better, exercise more, quit smoking etc, which are all great goals.
At IMS, we recognize the importance of having a good work-life balance. It goes without saying, that our staff are extremely committed and hard-working during their hours at work, but we all share in the fact that we require a satisfying amount of time for outside work activities.
Maintaining a good balance improves overall happiness and well-being, which in turn contributes to a healthy work environment.
Some tips to create a good work-life balance:
- Prioritize work tasks.
- Take regular breaks during the working day.
- Leverage technology to work smarter.
- Leave work at work.
- Exercise, eat healthy, meditate.
- Spend time with family and friends.
- Get the recommended amount of sleep.
- Take that holiday!
Work is an important part of everyone’s life, but it is still just one part!
As individuals, we could all do more to recognise the importance of downtime which benefits businesses, employees and society. What are you waiting for? Start making those changes today.
