It can be so easy getting caught up in the stress of work, and it taking over your whole world.
Everyone needs to set some healthy boundaries to give themselves a well being a boost, and this can be done whilst still having an amazing career.
Start Your Day With A Morning Workout
Elle Woods from Legally Blonde taught us so much. The bend and snap, obviously but a much more meaningful lesson came from her immortal words, “exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands, they just don’t.” A tad dramatic? Sure but 100% true nonetheless. Starting the day with a work-out puts you in a great headspace, it alleviates stress and some of your very best ideas can come to you when breaking a sweat.
Tackle Your To-Do List
The key to staying organised is sticking to a good old fashioned to-do list. Write it the night before and in the morning, you can break down your priorities to distinguish between what you need to get done and what you want to get done each day. Work through the most important tasks first!
To help you with your everyday planning, An Organised Life, Black List or CGD London have great planners to help keep you on track!
Discover the Power of No
If you cater to your boss’s every demand, no matter how unrealistic they may be, and as a result you are constantly overloaded, try becoming a ‘no person’ for a change. When harnessed correctly, the power of ‘no’ can be life-changing. So, if you take pride in being a workaholic it may be time to speak up and make a change to your action-packed schedule.
Treat Yourself to Healthy Take-Out
If you’ve arrived home from a long day at the office and the very idea of whipping up a feast for the whole family (or even just you) makes you feel tired, it’s time to put your feet up and relax. You don’t have to be a MasterChef every single night. Cut yourself some slack and order in, we hear Pomelo Online is a great gourmet, home-delivery option ;)
Step Away from the Computer
Truth bomb: the internet won’t breakdown if you step away from it for a few hours. Signing out of your emails after 6pm and skipping the mindless scroll of your phone for the night will ensure you are 100% present for quality time with your loved ones and it will help you enjoy a more peaceful night’s sleep.
