Finding Work-life Balance When Working From Home

Since the start of the pandemic in 2020, traditional business hours have gone out the window as has the prospect of working at business premises. Instead, professionals are often working at home, and in many cases working around their families too. With their usual routines turned on their heads many people have reported their work-life balance when working from home as worsened. With mental health for many suffering, the need to find a good balance is now more important than ever. In this article, we look into how to manage your life and work in 2021.

Work-life balance

Working from home; it’s the new normal. Or perhaps not quite so new. Even in 2019, before being coined in the 1980s, the term ‘work-life balance’ has become a familiar one. Put simply, it’s all about making sure you balance out the time you spend working with the time you spend enjoying everything else in life; your family, your friends, and your hobbies.

These days, some people in your company are probably online in the early morning, while some are online late into the evening, and others, much of the weekend. This may make you feel like you need to be online all the time to accommodate all of these schedules, and to be available for communication at all hours.

But the pandemic has turned a gradual trend into an overnight phenomenon. What was previously a considered lifestyle choice is now a necessity for lots of us. It’s had us scrambling to form makeshift ‘offices’ in bedroom corners, juggling childcare with emails, and wondering what the correct attire is for a Zoom call (shirt and tie above the desk, PJs and slippers below?).
