Management 101: Maintaining Your Work-Life Balance

Part of the Managing For Dummies Cheat Sheet

To ensure your long-term success as a manager, you want to understand how to effectively balance your life at work with your life at home. Maintaining this balance is an ongoing task; here are some of the best ways of doing it:

  • Don’t let your job consume you. Get away from your office or desk for a little downtime during the day. Even walking around the building for a few minutes can give you perspective.

  • Spend more time with friends and family.

  • Banish the working vacation from your life.

  • Engage in a regular exercise routine.

  • Accept what you can’t change and move on to things you can do something about.

  • Take a couple minutes each day to sit back, close your eyes, take some deep breaths, and relax.

  • Get to know your employees on a personal level.

  • Keep a lid on your anger by remembering that everyone makes mistakes from time to time. Figure out what you can do to try to help your employees prevent the same thing from occurring again.
