Hi, I’m Doug Barra. I’ve been coaching the owners of small local businesses for almost 16 years now. This puts me in a unique position to be able to work with amazing individuals, that take on the most courageous undertaking in the world in my opinion, being responsible for the livelihood of their team, their family, their team’s family, and the community of people that they serve. I wake up every day, feeling honored and a bit daunted by this. In this video, I’ll be sharing my insights gained from working day in and day out with business owners just like you. So without further ado, let’s get started.
First tip for creating balance is to set clear boundaries between work and personal life. One of the best ways to achieve a healthy work-life balance is to set clear boundaries between your work life and personal life. This means setting aside time for each activity and not letting one bleed into the other. For example, you might set aside certain hours of the day for work and then make sure to clock out and spend time with your family or friends afterward. This can be difficult to do at first, but it’s important to stick to your boundaries in order to maintain a healthy balance.
Another tip is to make sure you’re organized. Another way to create a balance between your work and personal life is to make sure you’re organized. This means having a plan for your day and sticking to it, try to schedule your work time and personal time in advance so that you know exactly what you need to do and when. This can help you avoid overlap between the two areas and make sure you’re making the most of your time.
A third tip is to delegate and build a support network. If you want to achieve a healthy work-life balance, it’s important to delegate tasks and build a support network. This means finding people who can help you with your work so that you can focus on other things. For example, if you have a family delegate some of your child-rearing duties to your partner or other family members. This can free up some time for you to focus on work or other pursuits. Additionally, trying to build a network of supportive friends or colleagues who can help you when you’re feeling overwhelmed.
The fourth tip is to take breaks and vacations. It’s important to remember that you need to take breaks and vacations in order to maintain a healthy work-life balance. This means taking time off from work to relax and recharge. Try to take a few days off each month to do things you enjoy outside of work. This can help you come back to work, feeling refreshed and ready to tackle your tasks. The fifth tip is to make time for yourself.
Another important way to maintain a healthy work-life balance is to make time for yourself. This means taking time out of your day to do something that you enjoy or that relaxes you. It can be anything from reading a book to going for a walk. Taking some time each day to focus on yourself can help you feel more balanced and sane.
The sixth tip is to exercise. Exercise is a great way to relieve stress and improve your work-life balance. This means taking time for physical activity each day. Try to fit in a workout during your lunch break or after work. Even just 30 minutes of exercise can help you feel more relaxed and focused.
The last tip is to set limits on technology. One final way to create balance between your work and personal life is to set limits on technology. This means making sure you’re not attached to your work email or phone outside of work hours. Try to set aside certain times of the day when you’re unavailable to work so that you can focus on other things. This can be difficult to do, but it’s important to disconnect from work in order to maintain a healthy balance.
By following these seven tips, you can create a healthy balance between your work and personal life. Just remember to take things one step at a time and be patient with yourself.
Creating a successful work-life rather than a stressful work-life balance takes time and effort, but it’s definitely achievable.
