CFG Talk. Work life balance.

by Lauren on January 24, 2013






Something I want to introduce along with the CFG rebranding is a segment called CFG talk. I want to use this to talk about some important topics that I am thinking about and feel free if you have topics you would like me to discuss, feel free to send me a message. I think its important to use this blog for open and honest ideas and thoughts.

SO today I wanted to talk about how to stay balanced while working a demanding job and while maintaing an interesting personal life. It is crazy how much time you can spend at work and then only have a few hours in the evening to yourself for working out, running errands and preparing for the next day. I have been doing some research on the best ways to stay balanced and this is what I’ve come  up with.

Drop Activities that Sap your Energy- When your day is jam-packed, the last thing you want to do is take part in something that brings you down. This can be something like talking to a friend who brings you down. You don’t have time for this so let it go!

Treat Yourself-the occasional pedicure or massage is something that completely revitalizes me. Splurge, occasionally, on yourself to help you stay energized  and happy, AND don’t feel guilt about it.

Create Daily Routines- Setting routines during the day helps me accomplish all that I want to. I hit the gym on my way home from work, instead of going home before (and then probably not making it to the gym.) This helps me not stress about the day because its routine.

Be Flexible- This is so important for staying balanced. When something comes up during your day that you didn’t plan for, be able to readjust your busy schedule and don’t stress because everything will eventually get done.
