Here at Wellington Group Marketing & PR, we work hard so that when the workday is done we are able to return home to exercise, play with the kiddos, cook yummy meals and maybe even binge-watch our favorite shows on Netflix. Our awesome Boss Lady, Dawn, left the corporate life to create an environment for an open-minded team to laugh loudly, speak openly and embrace their weird and wacky ways while still having time to enjoy their life outside of work. So how do the ladies of Wellington Group Marketing & PR maintain a work-life balance? Here are our tips:
- To-do Lists – We can’t stress enough how beneficial it is to write a to-do list for each day, week and maybe even month. It has been proven that people who write their goals down on paper have a better chance of achieving them. Yep, it’s time to close the notes tab on your smart phone and pull out the old notebook. We each write lists for work and for our personal lives, and it has changed our lives for the better!
- Be Realistic– Don’t put too much on your plate if you know you can’t do it. Allocate a manageable amount of tasks to complete so you feel accomplished at the end of the day and not overwhelmed. This way you can have some free time for yourself.
- Make a Schedule – Schedule your tasks ahead of time so that you give each item on your to-do list the attention it deserves. Make sure you schedule a specific time for yourself to relax, exercise or do chores in addition to your work tasks. Both are equally important!
- Prioritize – Put the “must do’s” at the top of the to-do list and get them done first. If hanging out with friends is considered a “must do” put it at the top of your list! NYC PR Girls has a great idea with their Life Balance Pyramid. Check it out and make your own pyramid to focus on where your priorities are.
