Top 10 Tips to Balance Work/Life in 2010

Top 10 Tips to Balance Work/Life in 2010

Todd Wheeler, CEO - Concierge Resource

8. Keep Track of Spending – Setting up a system to track spending and manage your finances will give you a sense of control over your income and debt. Times are stressful enough without worrying that you could be breaking your budget. Just because you have checks left doesn’t mean that there is still money in the account! Even a shoebox for receipts is better than shoving them into a mass of mail, receipts and papers. Set time aside on a realistic schedule, like once a week to tally the expenses to ensure you’re on track with your budget.

9. Put Off Until Tomorrow What You Can – Ask yourself, “Do I really need to do this today?” Some things we consider priorities can in fact be delayed until our plates are not as full. No need to apologize-sometimes procrastination is a viable strategy. Commit to what is feasible today, and by tomorrow, your priorities may shift.

10. Use Technology to Simplify Your Life – Use your PDA to track receipts, checklists, and key projects. Set up a spreadsheet to track projects and timelines on your home and work computer, so you always know where you stand with important projects. Let your voice mail answer when you need a break. Unless it’s critical or a life or death situation, it can likely wait.

Healthcare professionals in particular know there are many things that you can do to ease your stress and improve the lives of others. As we look to 2009, we anticipate change, stress and, hopefully, opportunity and relief. It is more important this year than ever before that you find ways to be kind to yourself and focus on yourself, your own work/life balance and your emotional wellness. If you are happier and less stressed, the people close to you will be as well!
