Five Easy Ways to Improve work-life balance I wish I had known earlier

Dear reader,


When was the last time you had a fantastic day? Waking up early, doing sports and having breakfast, finishing all important tasks until lunch, finishing your work on time, and having a great dinner with your family – and still have enough time for yourself to enjoy the rest of the day?

If you don’t have a fantastic day every day, feel trapped in your work, and never have enough time for yourself, then this article is for you.

Feeling exhausted, binge-watching Netflix with a massive bag of popcorn, and scrolling on Tik Tok for hours might be one of the biggest problems our generation faces regarding work-life balance.

We procrastinate, work to recover the wasted time, and then forget to recharge our batteries. Other times we work for so long – we forget that we cannot be productive for hours.

There are multiple ways to overcome procrastination, improve time management and find the perfect work-life balance. During my career, I found five easy methods that work for me. Check them out!

#1. Move on

We tend to complain a lot, to blame ourselves for procrastinating, or even when in a difficult situation – to ask ourselves why it happened to us.

If you want to start having a better work-life balance, move on! Stop feeling sorry for yourself, accept that the wasted time can not get back and get on track.

#2. Don’t just plan; write it down

According to numerous Neuroscience studies, it has been shown that people who write in the evening or morning the tasks that they will be performing that day, what they will be eating, and what exercise they will be doing have better results.

The more details they put down, the easier it will be to stick to the tasks. So grab a pen and start writing down!

After writing daily plans down, manage your time smart. Look out on the internet and find something that helps you. It can be a Pomodoro or the way your desk is organized.

I’m trying to find what suits you best and how you can work smarter and more efficiently.

#3. Don’t forget your end goal

An excellent tip when scheduling your day is to consider your daily, monthly, and long-term goals. It’s essential to know the end goal – this way, you can incorporate in your daily tasks small items that are getting you one step closer to the end goal.

It can be reading 30 pages before sleep, drawing, or even studying cryptocurrencies. What’s important is to keep it going!

#4. Use the power of questioning

It’s not just about time management. It’s also about how we feel and the level of our willpower. If our will is depleted, we lose our focus. If we lose our focus, our resolve might be as well forever gone!

So next time, instead of focusing on the wrong stuff with a negative vibe and asking yourself, “Why me? How can this happen? How did I end up here?” ask yourself, “How can I make the best of it?”

If you are having a bad day and don’t feel like finishing your tasks or going to the gym, change your mind and ask yourself: “What are you pleased about now in your life?” We can change our feelings and switch mindsets by asking the right questions.

Some of the best questions that give us great answers are: How can I make the best of it? How can I turn this around and make the situation perfect?

#5. It’s tea time

Take breaks. Take breaks from work, take breaks from family. Take breaks from friends. Take control of your life and start taking care of yourself!

Spend at least half an hour daily meditating. Start small if needed. Ten minutes of meditation will give you back the time you’ve used to procrastinate.

If you’ve reached the last step of this article, it’s time to take action! Otherwise, you’ve been procrastinating while reading an article.

Start investing in yourself, don’t allow yourself to reach burnout, plan your days, use powerful questions, discover your goals, and don’t forget to take a daily tea break!
