How To Balance Work And Life - Nazneen Ansari

Ideas for a balanced work and life
I know you feel like your life is a never-ending hustle and bustle of work, and the second you get home all you want to do is chill and relax.

The problem? You're not giving yourself a chance to switch gears. These ideas that I have applied in my life will hopefully help you create that balance in your life, that we all crave but don't know how to achieve.

Why it is important to balance work and life

  1. It is important to balance work and life because it can help to improve your mental and physical health. When you have a good work-life balance, you have time for both work and leisure activities. This can help you to relax and de-stress, which can improve your overall well-being.

  2. A balanced work-life balance can also help you to be more productive at work. If you have time for leisure activities, you can come back to work feeling refreshed and ready to tackle your tasks. This can lead to better work performance and results.

  3. Finally, a good work-life balance can help to improve your relationships with others. When you have time for both work and social activities, you can build strong bonds with family, friends, and co-workers. This can lead to a more fulfilling personal life.

How can we achieve a better balance at work?
There are a few things that we can do in order to achieve a better balance at work. First, we should make sure to set aside some time for ourselves every day. Maybe you don't have time to have breakfast at home, then have it at the office with your colleagues. have lunch breaks and small coffee breaks "Fika" like it's called in Swedish, or you just take walking meetings. When you get away from your work for a while, it will recharge your mind which will better your results.


Secondly, we can try to schedule our work so that it doesn't always consume our entire day. We can break up our work into smaller chunks and take breaks in between. Make sure you know the priorities in your work, in that case you would know what can wait till the next day. Lastly, we can communicate with our boss and let them know if we're feeling overwhelmed. By doing these things, we can create a better balance between work and life.
I personally believe that letting your boss know your private life situation also helps them understand your ups and downs in life.

What can help with a better balance at home?
There are a few things that can help with having a better balance at home. One thing is to try and have set times for when work will be done and when personal time will be had. You might know your daily to do list. Once you know them you can plan and make sure that work isn’t bleeding into personal time and vice versa.

It can also be helpful to delegate tasks and responsibilities, both at work and at home. This can help to lighten the load and make sure that everything is getting done.

Be careful not to read any mails or take calls after office time, and be very clear to colleagues about it.

Best ways to find time for both
Another great way to achieve a balance between work and life is to make sure that your work revolves around your personal life, rather than the other way around. This means prioritizing things like family and hobbies over work commitments. It can be tough to do this at times, but it's important to remember that your personal life is just as important as your professional one.

Finally, it's also important to have realistic expectations when it comes to balancing work and life. It's not always possible to perfectly juggle both, and sometimes one will have to take precedence over the other. That's okay! Just try to strike a balance that works for you and doesn't be too hard on yourself if things get a little out of whack from time to time.

1. Find your way of doing this and don't expect anybody else to get it right.
There is no one-size-fits-all solution to achieving a balanced work-life balance. What works for one person may not work for another. It's important to find what works for you and not to expect anybody else to get it right.

2 Be honest with yourself about what you can and can't handle.
It's important, to be honest with yourself about what you can and can't handle. If you try to do too much, you'll only end up feeling overwhelmed and stressed out. Figure out what you can realistically accomplish in a day, week, or month, and then stick to that.

3. Don't be afraid to ask for help.
If you're struggling to juggle everything on your own, don't be afraid to ask for help from family, friends, or colleagues. Having someone else pitch in can make a world of difference.

4. Make time for yourself.
To maintain a healthy work-life balance, it's important to make time for yourself. This means taking time out of your busy schedule to relax.


There's no one-size-fits-all answer to the question of how to achieve a balanced work-life balance. What works for one person might not work for another, and what works at one stage of life might not be feasible at another. The important thing is to find what works for you and to be flexible enough to change your approach as your circumstances change. Ihope that my ideas have given you some food for thought on how you can create a more balanced life for yourself.
