The work-life balance is a hard one to maintain. A survey by job portal Monster. com shows that 60 per cent of working Indians feel they have average to terrible work-life balance. However, business psychologist ModMonk Anshul, founder of SoulSchool, avers: “We do not need to create a balance; the balance is already there. It is natural and universally designed; all we have to do is understand and integrate it consciously into our lives.” How does one do that, though?
First, it is important to understand where to draw the line and how to go about it. Once you know where you are faltering, it is easier to get things in line. Here are some tips.
THE ETERNAL STRUGGLE
While ‘doing what you love’ is what we all strive for, you need to also think about ‘loving what you do’. Rachana Sodhi, 34, an HR professional from Chandigarh, says, “I have always loved to paint, and took art classes through my school and college years. I wanted to choose a career in art, but I also realised that, unless one is very successful at it, it cannot sustain you financially.”
“Leave your baggage at the door when you enter your home,” Anshul advises. “Your home is a reflection of the energy you carry around.” In the current scenario, ensure you log off from work at your scheduled log-off time. Plan your day accordingly.
