Yassy S Posted December 6, 2021 Share Posted December 6, 2021 How has COVID impacted your work / life balance? I know for me personally it’s been a double edged sword - on one hand it’s been great being at home; I can get so much more personal stuff done whilst working from home like putting on a load of laundry or prepping meals in between meetings but at the same time I find myself logging on as soon as I wake up and doing an hour of work before I get out of bed or logging on after dinner and sending “just a few emails” at night. I’ve slowly been going back to the office and have noticed on days I’m in the office I have a much cleaner break between work and personal hours. When I’m not at work I don’t read emails or reply to messages but at the same time by the time I get home in the evening I’m too tired to do anything other than eat and sleep. I’d be interested to hear others experiences and any tips you have on maintaining a work / life balance these days. I’ve personally set boundaries on when I will and won’t check emails / chats etc. - nothing before 7:30 and nothing after 21:00. Whilst this may not seem like a boundary to some, it’s a step in the right direction for me (someone who would regularly log on at 5am!!). What are you doing to maintain a work / life balance? 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
