Work-Life Balance

by | Aug 25, 2020

We all want a good work-life balance–something that becomes harder when your work moves into your home.

For most people, their return to office date keeps getting pushed back. For some, it’s gone completely. So, as you look at permanently making part of your house an office, keep in mind the importance of separation.

According to Forbes, there are five things you can do to make sure the line between working and downtime doesn’t become blurred. For example, rebuild your boundaries. It’s been months since we started working from home–and you might need to reset some habits.

If you had a ten-minute commute, use that time to walk around the neighborhood. Don’t set up your office in your living room or bedroom. Instead, find a place reserved only for work.

Next, take screen-free breaks during the day. You are now surrounded by your computer, personal tablets and TVs. Take some time to look out a window or read a book. Give your brain a break.

For more tips, go to – and keep your balance.
