Striking a balance between love life and career has become more and more challenging in today’s day and age – with so many distractions and shiny objects in life and at work, we are simply overwhelmed. Now I’d like to share three top tips with you, so that you can see having it all isn’t impossible.
- Make sure your weekend is not about work. Don’t check your emails on weekends. Ideally, you would be well-advised to have a screen-free day each week so that you can be truly rested. Put down activities that you’d like to do with your partner every weekend in your diary or calendar, because if it’s not scheduled, it’s not real! It would be even better if you and your partner have a shared calendar, so that he/she can see what’s going to happen next weekend. When you two are excited about each weekend, you will feel every weekday is so much better because there is always something to look forward to.
- A romantic gesture a day makes the heart grow fonder. No matter how busy you are at work, you can always find one minute a day to kiss your partner or give him/her a passionate hug. Tell him/her how much you appreciate this relationship. Remember: consistency is paramount in relationships.
- Be more productive at work. Your tremendous productivity at work removes your anxiety after work. Therefore, you should learn time management skills such as the Pomodoro technique. Taking regular breaks at work actually makes you more productive.
