Life can often run full speed ahead. Many of us are trying to juggle work, pursuing our careers, family, friends, social lives, hobbies, exercise, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and everything in between. It’s crucial to get the right balance of work and life, for your own mental health, but also it’s proven that you’ll perform better at work too. Here are our AutoSkills tips for how to achieve just that.
Speak to your employer
If you’re feeling overwhelemd, don’t hesitate in speaking to your manager. It’s important to understand that your workplace plays a role in contributing to improving your work-life balance. It’s their duty of care to monitor policies in regards to your working hours, encourage openness and ensure employees are managing their workload correctly.
Stop saying yes, take a step back
Have you ever been guilty of saying yes to too many things, in fear you don’t want to be seen as not doing a good job? This is a common issue, as many of us have the drive to want to push ourselves to achieve more, but end up saying yes to too many tasks. It might be time to take a step back, reassess your workload, and don’t be afraid to speak up for how much you can or can’t take on right now.
Set your priorities
Here at AutoSkills, we really like the saying “fail to prepare, and prepare to fail” as it takes hardly any time to set your priorities out for the day or week ahead, and will really help manage your time, including workload and life tasks.
Concentrate on one thing at a time
We’re not all multitaskers, nor are we superhuman, so try putting your attention to one thing at a time, whether that’s at work or home, and you’ll be amazed at how much you can fit in or prioritise better.
