Balancing Work and Life: Putting Your Oxygen Mask on First

Updated: Mar 27, 2023

Achieving a balance between work and life can be a perplexing task, especially for professionals with a demanding career and family responsibilities. We often feel the pressure to meet the needs of both, leading to stress and burnout.

However, prioritizing self-care is essential to achieving success in all aspects of our lives. By taking care of our physical, emotional, and mental health, we can increase productivity, efficiency, and happiness in both personal and business lives.

"Self-care is not selfish. You cannot serve from an empty vessel." - Eleanor Brownn

One effective strategy is to put your oxygen mask on first, just like the instructions given on airplanes. This means taking care of yourself first before helping others. By prioritizing your well-being, you can better manage your work and personal responsibilities.

Saying "no" is another crucial element to maintaining a healthy work-life balance. It's important to avoid taking on more than you can handle and focus on quality over quantity. This helps you stay focused on your goals and prevents burnout.

Lastly, having a clear vision of your objectives and priorities is essential to making informed decisions. This helps you invest your time and energy wisely, and avoid getting sidetracked by unnecessary distractions.

Achieving a balance between work and life is an ongoing process, and a Wellness Coach can assist in finding ways to help prioritize self-care, saying "no" when necessary, and having a clear vision of your objectives.
