Tips for Work-Life Balance

Work Hard But Still Have Some Fun

It’s not uncommon for a lot of people to be so focused on success that they forget to enjoy life along the way. While it is great to work hard, you do need to allow yourself to have a bit of fun in order to keep from getting burnt out. This is why it’s a good idea to schedule a small amount of time every week to do something that you enjoy. You could do something like going to the movies, playing golf or meeting your friends for a bite to eat.

Get Into A Good Routine

You will find it’s easier to have a good work-life balance by getting into a routine. This will allow you to be the most efficient at both work and at home. You won’t forget to do something because you spent too much time completing a task. Just remember that this doesn’t mean that every minute of your day needs to be scheduled. It just means that you should have a basic idea as to when you want to complete some of the more important tasks.

Stop Saying Yes To Everything

Quite a few individuals struggle with their work-life balance just because they keep saying yes to everything that someone invites them to. You really don’t have to attend every event that your friends and family ask you to come to. Only attend the things that you want to go to or that you think are very meaningful to them. By doing so, you will have enough time to get everything done each day, and you won’t feel like you have so much to do that you don’t have any time for yourself.

If you are struggling with finding a work-life balance that makes you happy, you aren’t alone. Many people have a difficult time with this, but there are plenty of things that you can do about it. By keeping the above tips in mind, you can figure out a work-life balance that works for you.

Carolyn McBeth has always dreamed of owning a farm since she was a child. Carolyn used her enthusiasm to pay for college at Iowa State University, where she majored in Agricultural Business and was named to the Dean's List. Her schooling also gave her the chance to join agricultural fraternities and get more active in the industry. She interned at Pioneer H-Bred International as a Supply Planning and Logistics Professional while in school, and worked for John Deere & Company as a Complete Goods/Aftermarket Coordinator and AMS Technical Representative. These positions led to promotions as a Production Planning Supply Management Specialist and Marketing Product Specialist Representative.

Carolyn followed her goal of starting a small family farm right after graduation. She has been in charge of daily operations and equipment/land acquisition since then. Visit her website at carolynmcbeth.com for additional information!
