Here are just a few ways to balance work and play
-Get a set schedule at work, that way you’re able to plan around it
-Wake up earlier, enjoy your morning
-Stop commuting so far to work (get a job closer or move) you’ll thank yourself later
-Schedule play time, put it into your calendar, and make dates with yourself
-Try not to work weekends, and if you have to, make sure you have time off during the week for yourself
-Make a routine, sometimes it’s nice to have a Monday-Friday routine, and then a weekend routine
-Stop checking your work email when you’re not at work
-Set boundaries with your boss, let them know when you’re not at work, you won’t be able to be reached via phone
-Prioritize your self-care
It's important to mention, your life will never be completely balanced - there's no such thing. What you want to do is try to balance out your professional and personal life as much as possible.
