You can make changes that will improve the quality of your work life and set you on track for a more fulfilled career.
“The specific in-office, self-care habits can vary, but there are some fundamental ones that successful people employ to improve their personal well-being and performance as leaders and managers. These are helpful tips regardless of your status,” says Peter Kriel, general manager at the Independent Institute of Education.
Find ways that work for you to manage your time better – be they apps, prioritizing tasks, setting boundaries or delegating;
Keep learning no matter how old, skilled or experienced you are. Ask you manager about courses you can attend. Adopt a life-long learning approach;
Take breaks during your day to recharge and take long weekends to enjoy downtime;
You need to manage stress. Whatever you choose – deep breathing, meditation or hiking – make sure it works for you;
Set clear boundaries – between work and personal life, and at work with colleagues and managers to prevent burnout; and
Reflect on where you want to be in five or 10 years’ time, and set the goals you need to reach to get there.
