In this post I am going to show you how you can literally have your cake and eat it when it comes to business, with these great work life balance tips.

There is a saying that you can’t mix business with pleasure but I don’t agree with that at all. We all work hard to provide for our families, put food on the table and a roof over our heads. We also work hard so that we can have great experiences outside of work, but sometimes it is hard to find that happy medium.

Spending time with your loved ones is priceless so I am going to share with you some valuable work life balance tips so that you can enjoy the fruits of your labour, doing things that you enjoy and creating those special moments with your friends and family.

Work Life Balance Tips – The Perfect Recipe For Success In Life & In Your Home Business

Work Life Balance Tips

Work Balance Tips 1

Create The Perfect Schedule – The first of my work life balance tips is to create a schedule that includes work priorities and gives you that all important personal downtime.

Many people think that you should concentrate 100% on your business and that you are crazy to think about your own time. This could not be any further from the truth because if you do not look after yourself then you will quickly become burnt out. This will lead to a lack of motivation for your home business and it can also lead to you resenting your business, as it takes too much of your time.

This makes you lose focus on why you started your home business in the first place. Working all the hours in the day will eventually lead you to breaking point and it is very hard to bring yourself back.

I work very hard in my internet business and I realise that you need to escape from it to re-charge the batteries, relieve the stress and tension that builds up and to give myself a little reward for all my hard work. A perfect example is when I decided to take a break from my business and go on a pleasure boat cruise from Larnaca, Cyprus where I have a second home.

Work Balance Tips 2

Pick Priorities – There are certain things in life and business that are non-negotiables. So prioritize what they are. Include the things that have to be done in your business of course but one of your priorities may be to spend time with your family, so make sure you include this within your non-negotiables.

Work Balance Tips 3

Work To Your Schedule – Once you have worked out your schedule then stick to it. It is very easy to deviate and drift back into your old ways of putting your home business first and you second.

Your schedule should include certain time slots which are allocated for various business tasks and downtime away from your business.

Separate your work and downtime, so that when you are working your are totally focused on the tasks at hand and when you are home you never let work enter your head. This is difficult I know, because you have responsibilities to many in your business but you will be no good for them if you do not take time out for yourself and have work life balance.

Work Balance Tips 4

Deal With Tension & Stress – Just because you have worked out your schedule by following what I have shared with you in these work life balance tips, it does not mean that there will not be times when you feel tense and stressful. That is just life.

What will happen though is because you have a more balanced life you will be able to deal with the tension and stress a lot better. Daily meditation will also help you here.

I have now created a perfect balance in my life and business. To find out how I manage to do this then click on the image below where you will discover the resources that I use to enable me to run my internet business and enjoy the finer things in life.

Thought for the day!

Leaders visualize their goals, so just set goals and achieve them and stop making excuses not to. Limiting beliefs are only what you tell yourself to believe, change that mindset and just believe in achieving your goal.
