Success is a product of both skill and hard work. However, too much work can be unhealthy for your mind, body, and social life. To reach your goals, it is best to lead a balanced life. Here are 10 signs you should keep an eye on to bring your work-life balance back on track.
1. You’re always tired.
Too much stress causes physical illnesses and lowers the immune system so you are more prone to fatigue and sickness. Stress causes the muscles and the brain to go into ‘overdrive’ which easily makes your body ache and feel drained. Watch for these stress-related symptoms: muscle soreness, chronic headaches, light-headedness, poor appetite, poor memory, low mood, and lack of motivation. Try to sleep at least 7-8 hours a day and start to step up your self-care routine to refresh your mind and body.
2. You always work overtime.
If you spend more time at work than at home, then that’s a clear sign that you need to manage your time better. It’s alright to spend a few more minutes at work to finish your tasks for the day, or even to get a headstart for the next day, however, doing this every day is not a good habit. Managing and prioritising your tasks for the day would make you be more productive and help you get out of the office as soon as you can.
