You should constantly check how you are spending your time and energy. The importance of this is because your schedule could change over time. Choosing carefully what task and projects you take on, giving priority to those that fit with your goals. 





Limiting Distractions


Reduce distractions during working hours by shutting off unnecessary alerts and setting up a quiet, isolated workplace. Tell your family and friends about your work schedule and ask for their help in reducing disruptions during working hours.

Set Realistic Goals

While keeping a healthy balance is important there may be times when your work requires more of your time. For what you can accomplish in light of your situation, be realistic. When it comes to how much time and work it will take to accomplish the goal, be honest with yourself. 


Ask for Help


Don’t be afraid to ask family, friends and those closest to you for help when you’re feeling stressed. You can gain clarity and find ways to balance work and life by talking about your challenges and asking others for advice.
