Be Mindful and Prioritise

The four aspects of our life – Work, Family, Self/ Health and Friends are all important, but keeping all the elements happy all the time is too much to ask for from yourself. Prioritising helps in knowing which aspect needs attention more according to the circumstances. It can help to bring both personal and professional life to a balanced position, and life becomes much more comfortable at both ends.

Communicate Effectively

Communication plays a paramount role when creating harmony between work and personal life. While there will be times where failure may strike in, communication is the best tool to consider to hold oneself strong. Transparent communication with loved ones, colleagues, bosses or friends can facilitate in being on track. It’s important to interact and be clear with the situations that come across. If things are not going right, there’s always a better choice which is to communicate with the people involved in that situation.

Develop Core Habits

Core habits are essentially a practice that we start following as it gives us overall life satisfaction; these habits may form intentionally or even unintentionally. Core habits create a domino effect bringing a positive change in all the aspects of our life, thus making it easier to achieve fulfilment in our lives. For instance, core habits can be working out after a stressful day at work or starting the day with meditation, which helps in increasing the level of satisfaction.

What Are UR Core Habits?

Write down three habits that will make you feel happier, regardless of how difficult and stressful UR day has been. Try this exercise, and you can see yourself analyse so much about a situation you may be in, and help you find UR solutions, because, problems come to you only when you have an answer.

Attaining work-life harmony is not an easy task, but it’s also not impossible to do. Although it requires one to keep reinventing and learning what works and what doesn’t, the takeaway is extremely beneficial as it leads to less stress, less guilt and more peace of mind.
