Balancing Work and Play
10:17:32 2023-11-22 270

1- Work efficiently. Remember that the quality of work you put into an hour is more important than the number of hours you put into the work. Sometimes working for a long time on something gives you the illusion that you are getting a lot done when really you haven’t had a productive hour. Be open and honest with yourself about the quality of your work. If you need help, ask for it. Other people might be able to give you better tips on how to do something efficiently and effectively.

  • Write down everything you complete in a half-hour so you can see how efficiently you're using your time.
  • Try the Pomodoro technique: set a timer for 25 minutes and do as much work as you can in that time, then take a break for 5 minutes. Every 4 Pomodoro intervals, take a longer break—15 to 30 minutes.


2- Take time to relax. Working smarter means taking small breaks while you work and also making a point to schedule relaxing activities into your day. This will improve your creativity and productivity and lower your stress levels.

  • One popular study recommends working for 52 minutes and taking a 17-minute break to improve your productivity.
  • Make it a point to do things that you find relaxing, such as yoga, meditation, painting, or reading.


3- Open a savings account. It’s always smart to save money for the future now. Set aside an amount that you will save every month. Make a list of special circumstances or emergencies under which you will use this money.

  • If you are still studying, consider getting a part-time job. This will teach you the value of money and time, and instill responsibility and discipline in you.
  • And when you have a part-time job, try to save money in GICs or high-interest savings accounts if you're a "safe saver". Alternatively, you can try to put money in the crypto market so you can earn a good amount of passive income for the future.


4- Build a social and professional network.  Be kind to people. Build a network of people you can rely on for advice and support in the future. This includes your friends, people you work with who are higher in the command chain than you are, your peers, and your mentors and teachers. Look to those with more experience than you for advice on how to work towards the future you dream of.

  • Even if your goal is something that they don’t have personal experience in, they can likely still give you solid advice or wisdom that applies to you, or just support and encouragement.

 


5- Lead a healthy lifestyle. Taking care of your health now will improve your chances of seeing your future through. A healthy lifestyle includes healthful eating, getting enough physical activity, getting plenty of sleep, good hygiene habits, and actively making time to relax and destress. You will see the benefits of these in your present as well as your future; a healthy lifestyle will have psychological, social, and physical benefits.

  • To eat well, consult a nutritionist about the best kinds of food for your body type. Be sure to have balanced meals and to eat a full breakfast.
  • Aim for at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day. How much you need as you age will change and will be affected by other health factors such as your current weight and your heart condition.
  • Try to get about 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep each night, and avoid looking at bright screens at least an hour before bedtime to ensure the highest quality rest.

Take care of your hair, your skin, and your teeth. Self-grooming will boost your self-esteem and make you feel more fresh throughout the day.
