If you are in a high pressure job then it can become quite difficult to balance your work and social lives, leading to you feeling that all you do with your life is work. For a short time this can actually offer you a great challenge, but as human beings we do need rest and relaxation in order to recharge.
Balancing your work and social life
Working too hard for too long, without social experiences, it is likely that stress and exhaustion will take over. If you are working very hard and feel that you need to get your social life back in order, here are some ways in which you can do this.
- Schedule everything. Although it may not seem very spontaneous to schedule a night in with your partner, this may be the only way that you are able to take some time for yourself and the ones you love. Make sure that you schedule a couple of nights and days off every week, no matter how high your workload.
- Combine the two. Don’t be afraid to get networking when you are at work and enjoy conversations with the people around you. If you are spending a lot of time at work then you may as well enjoy the company of those around you. And networking can help you to get far as you move up the career ladder!
- Don’t be afraid to take some alone time. Everything is not always about work or social life. Sometimes people just need some time to themselves, and you shouldn’t be afraid to take some of this time as well.
- Know when enough is enough. When you are starting to physically feel the challenge of the work you are doing, it is time to stop and walk away for a little bit. Stop pushing yourself so hard and enjoy some time with the people you love.
