How to Improve Work-Life Balance

Ms.Riya Goel (Asst.Prof.MGMT)


Work-life balance is a state of equilibrium where an individual emphasises both the demands of one’s work life and the demands of one’s personal life uniformly. The following are several of the most frequent causes of a poor work-life balance:

  • Worksite requirements have increased.
  • Spending long hours at work
  • Added domestic responsibilities
  • Having children


  • Methods for Improving Work-Life Balance
  • Make a Realistic Timetable

 Life is unpredictable, and you may have to invest more time with your loved ones on some days or spend a weekend at work on others.

You should not place excessive pressure on yourself to keep to your scheduling system.One weekend spent at work will not affect your balance between work and life, but if you work most weekends, it may have an impact on your family life.

  • Prioritize your top tasks and complete them first.

Few things are more pleasurable than crossing your most crucial, anxiety-inducing responsibilities off your to-do list. Placing these first will give you a sense of fulfilment and effectiveness for the remaining portion of the day. This also enables you to go home confident that you put your strongest foot forward today.

  • Plan your holiday and vacation days ahead of time.

Making a strategy for your PTO, no matter how often you do it, can make the difference between using and losing the valuable benefit you’ve been offered. Adding those days to your calendar and soliciting them ahead of time is also a promise. You will become more likely to stick to and optimise that moment.

  • Pursue your passion

Employees who have a good work-life balance recognize the value of making time for their hobbies, whether that’s exercising, reciting, painting, yoga, or investing with their loved ones. Try to find one activity that restores creativity, brings amusement, and recharges the mind every day.

  • Do not take breaks to complete tasks.

When working from home, it can be enticing to spend breaks at work running errands. A 30-minute break can rapidly turn into a frenzy of cleaning, stashing laundry, washing the dishes, or paying bills. Rather than, use the time between work sessions to luxuriate in some “me time” to focus on your well-being.

  • Request assistance.

Never suffer in silence or allow work pressures to build up to unmanageable levels. When things get too much, colleagues, managers, friends, and family are there to assist and share the burden. They can’t help if they don’t know exactly what’s going on.


  • The Importance of Work-Life Balance

Maintaining positive work-life balance perks both employers and employees. Enhancing thebalance between work and life facilitates you to meet your requirements which include sleep, nourishment, and making friends. Thus, it has the power to enhance your efficiency and productivity.Work-life balance enables you to devote more time to interacting with your relatives, friends, and co-workers, which allows you to form positive relationships.
