Every now and then, we get so consumed in our work, that we neglect our relationships. So how do you find a healthy balance between love and work? The balance between love and your career requires work, but it's worth it...
The fate of any relationship is determined by the effort of both parties and a healthy balance. Such is the conundrum in the quest for love and work balance. We all crave to love our jobs and be successful, and we put in hours and hours to achieve that goal. We work late nights, weekends, we are constantly checking our blackberries and iPhones and disconnect from our relationships. As a result, our health deters, our friendships suffer and our dating life becomes limited.
If and when you find someone you really want to be with, you will carve out the time and it won't feel like a hassle or a chore... it's a want. You'll want to leave work a little early, or sleep in a little longer or call in sick a couple times. While this is only feasible for a bit, there are other ways to balance work and the love of your life... here are some tips:
Date Nights: Schedule one night a week where you and your partner go out and do something fun... It can be trying the newest restaurant in town, to renting a movie and just being with each other curled up on the couch.
First hour when you come home from work: Now a days, it seems as soon as we get home from work, we open up our laptops and start working again. Try leaving your laptop and phone for an hour when you get home and decompress. Talk to your partner about his/her day, catch up, eat dinner and unwind.
Take a Day Off: Some of us may be fortunate enough to take a day off of work whenever we want. Some may need to plan ahead. Try scheduling a "day-off" every other month and plan to spend that day with your partner. It provides you something exciting to look forward to!
If you can find a work balance that allows you to enjoy the journey and experience of a relationship, you are on your way to a healthy and wonderful life. Make a conscious effort to maintain a healthy balance between love and work. A true and well-balanced person will recognize the benefit of having both. You will take steps to ensure you are nurturing your personal relationship and continuing your career growth. It is only when we can maintain this constant balance that we can live our lives to the fullest potential.
