During this pandemic, you are not only at risk of getting the COVID virus. If you have to work at home and also have a tendency to overwork, you will most likely become a workaholic, if not already. Learn how can you set your limits and be in controls of the situation
1. Seek professional advice. A coach can help you get your priorities straightened out, review the origin of the issues, and help you come up with an action plan.
2. Sticking to schedules and work routines. By adjusting these guidelines, you can gradually begin to dedicate more time to yourself, to family, friends, a hobby, reading, and anything else that is not work-related. It is a gradual process.
3. Learn to delegate. Lay the foundations with your colleagues and in your team to delegate effectively.
4. Detecting fatigue and exhaustion: stopping in time. Remember that less is more. Your productivity will decrease is you continue to work while exhausted.
5. Avoid over-adapting to situations: apply intuition and what "your guts" tell you. Slow down in time.
6. Establish priorities on the to-do list. This is a basic productivity tool, to help balance your personal and professional life.
7. Take care of food and rest: no less than 7 to 8 hours a day and exercise regularly, at least three times a week.
8. Vary work routines. Alternate moments of high demand for focus and concentration, with breaks and recreation (if possible outside the work environment).
9. Decrease stress. Lower stress levels by practicing meditation, yoga, listening to podcasts that raise your motivation and self-esteem.
