How to achieve a work-life balance at home ?
Socialize with your colleagues. For many of us, it’s the people we work with that make our jobs worthwhile. Just because you don’t see them face-to-face doesn’t mean you can’t continue to chat with your friends from work. It’s good to maintain the connections you’ve shared at the office, as it will help keep your spirits up throughout your career. It would be easy to lose motivation if you suddenly felt very cut off and isolated from the rest of your staff.
In the absence of clearly regulated schedules (as was the case when you worked in an office), it can be difficult to know how to regulate your free time. The trick is to take a break when it makes sense rather than at a specific time of day. This allows your creativity to unfold without being capped at a random time of day.
Try to build this activity into your day to make it as regular as possible. Make it a point to get out and refresh your mind as often as possible.
Set goals and targets for each day. Without the positive influence of a manager or team around you, it can be difficult to know how to measure daily success. And while you’ll certainly receive guidance in this regard, it doesn’t hurt to set personal goals at the beginning of each day, or week.
This will help you stay on track and give you real motivation to strive to reach a certain metric at the end of the designated period. If you wish, these can even be personal goals, rather than professional ones.
