Mental Wellbeing - Balance - Work Life

Improve work life balance and do more for yourself!

Work Life Balance

What is work life balance?

Work life balance is all about achieving a balance which works well for you when it comes to your personal life, professional life and family life. In order to reduce stress, we would recommend that you review what your work life balance looks like right now and ways that you can improve your own sense of wellness and wellbeing.

Here is our easy and practical guide on how to improve work life balance and do more for yourself:

Exercise – Some offices are lucky enough to have a dedicated gym onsite with lunchtime classes, but most of us can still integrate exercise into our daily routine without access to specialist workout equipment.

When you’re at work, think about taking the stairs rather than the lift wherever possible, and introduce easy 1-2-3 office workouts into your day such as seated leg raises and free weights with water bottles.

Our best advice is to make the most of your lunch hour by taking a break from your desk and going for a brisk walk, run or cycle if possible. This means you can return to work feeling invigorated and energised ready for the afternoon ahead.

How can I improve work balance through exercise?

When you’re at work, think about taking the stairs rather than the lift wherever possible, and introduce easy 1-2-3 office workouts into your day such as seated leg raises and free weights with water bottles.

How can I improve work balance at lunch?

Many of us have desk-based jobs in an office environment and sit for more than eight or nine hours a day which can promote a sedentary lifestyle.
After all, it’s not about working harder, it’s about working smarter.

How can I improve work balance alone?

Let’s be honest, whether we have a customer-facing job or not, being sociable all day can be mentally exhausting, and it’s okay to take some time for yourself. Alone time can mean listening to music, a podcast, either before work, during the working day or in the evening.

How can I improve work balance with meditation?

Give meditation a go, it helps you to achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm state. It does this by focusing the mind on a specific thought, feeling or action and can be used to help provide stress relief and to increase our concentration.

Lunch breaks – Many of us have desk-based jobs in an office environment and sit for more than eight or nine hours a day which can promote a sedentary lifestyle.
After all, it’s not about working harder, it’s about working smarter.

Many of us may end up eating at our desk, and we might find that we haven’t actually left our desk all day even for lunch. Remember, it’s completely acceptable to take your breaks and no one will, or indeed should, question your commitment to the job for doing so.

Alone time – Let’s be honest, whether we have a customer-facing job or not, being sociable all day can be mentally exhausting, and it’s okay to take some time for yourself. Alone time can mean listening to music, a podcast, either before work, during the working day or in the evening. Or switching off entirely, even if it is just a few minutes of silence and time to be alone with your thoughts can help to improve your day to day emotional wellbeing and reduce your stress.

Meditation – It is true to say that work is one of the biggest causes of stress. Give meditation a go, it helps you to achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm state. It does this by focusing the mind on a specific thought, feeling or action and can be used to help provide stress relief and to increase our concentration. Remember to be kind to yourself, always.
