Original Question: What are some keys to work/life balance?
You decide what work-life balance means for you. I work a little bit every day and every night, every day of the week. Some people prefer to work Mon-Fri and be off work completely for the weekends.
You decide when you will be available and hold firm to that. If you don’t want to work or answer emails/texts after 10 PM, put your phone away or set yourself to “away.”
When it’s time for fun and vacation, don’t touch any messages from work. They’ll survive. If they can’t handle it and let you truly enjoy your time away, find a new job.
