2. Try to be Punctual and Disciplined

The next important thing you need to keep in mind to have a work-life balance is to always be punctual and disciplined. Neither be too late to work nor be the one coming early for work.

Some people save their leaves till the very end and think that if they will be getting ill they will use them. But you should not save your leaves if you have got 3 leaves in a month. Try to use them and get breaks from the office work and relax. Don't wait till the end of the month and later regret it. 

4. Know to Separate Your Personal Space and Office

It is also said don't talk about personal life in the office. You must do your work in the office. Don't discuss personal matters in the office until it is very urgent. Neither give someone advice nor take it. Be the listening ear if someone is telling you about their life. If you are facing a lot of issues in separating your personal space and office then you can also take stress management counseling to reduce your stress and get a better work lifestyle.

5. Take Some Short Breaks During Working Hours

Even if you are working, try to take short breaks. Taking short breaks during working hours can help you release your stress and be more effective and focused on work. If you have 15 minutes or lunch break, don't be lazy by just sitting in your chair. Do some physical activity like walking, talking to colleagues, and going to the cafeteria.

6. Leave the Habit of Taking Office Work to Home

As always said, one should never take office in the home and vice-versa. Therefore, leave the habit of taking office work home. Some people work even after going home. You should never do that. When you are at home just free yourself from all the worries of the office and relax with your family.
