Chances are that work-life balance was the top requirement for this year’s resolution.
Have you established a regular cadence for evaluating your work-life balance and jotting down your thoughts on how things are going? If not, start today, so you have something to reflect on and see how you are progressing over time.
Are you happy with the current state of your work-life balance?
If not, can you pinpoint where things went wrong? Maybe you have an increased workload at your job? Or perhaps Netflix got the better of you. Maybe something else is taking more time than you would like?
Now would be a good time to go back to the drawing board and identify where things took a turn. Remember, it is essential to strike a balance in our lives for many reasons. When your life is balanced, you can focus on what’s important to you, experiencing no anxiety or guilt.
With a few adjustments, you can take back control of your life by intentionally managing your work-life balance. That includes making your health a priority. While it’s important to remember we can’t control everything, there are many things you can do to have better control.
Manage Your Exercise Routine
Time is of the essence when you’re exercising. And the best way to manage your time is to integrate technology into your exercise routine.
A key lesson the pandemic taught us is that fitness apps are the gyms of tomorrow. Instead of spending 10 or 20 minutes driving to the gym and then another 20 minutes driving home, you can work out in the comfort of your own home, on the road, or even at your office.
So, how about switching to a fitness app that understands your time constraints?

Work-Life Balance Takes Work
“Rome wasn’t built in a day.“
Many times, we rush into things hoping they become an overnight success. While we do such things with good intentions, understand that good things take time.
And for work-life balance to benefit you, you may need to give it some time. Here are some choices to ponder:
- How can I separate work from life without negating the other?
- Do I need to switch careers to have more time for my family?
- How can I set boundaries between leisure time and work time?
- How does my health impact other family members in my household?
Once you have answered these questions, be sure to give it time and set goals which benefit you.
Here are a few key take-home points:
- Periodically review if your strategy is working and make changes if needed.
- Ask for help when the need arises.
- Work-life balance may take time to achieve. Make small, incremental changes over time.
Sworkit is here to support you along the way.
