How to strike the perfect balance between career & personal life

In recent years we have seen a largely positive shift in the way women with full-time careers are perceived. No longer does it carry a stigma, and the respect for women as professionals has also increased. With all of these positive shifts, it is also important to make sure that we don’t burn out while we chase our career goals.

Having a balance between work and personal life can be the one factor people are neglecting, and fixing it may lead to even more success. We should make more room in our day by doing the finer things in life that add value to us as individuals.

All Work And No Play

All Work And No Play

When it comes to working, we are often gratified in accordance with the effort we put in. More work is seen as more being successful, and more success inevitably brings with it more work, but is all that work stopping one from smelling the roses?

Throughout history, humans have always been somewhat aware of how being too obsessed over tasks doesn’t always have upsides. Hard work may help us, but sometimes working too hard may also hamper the work.

Experts also suggest that taking fewer than required breaks from tasks may hamper our ability to think objectively about that given task. This doesn’t mean you should only shuffle your tasks now and then, but a clean break from your schedule might actually help you think more clearly and with that clarity may come productivity.

Identifying when you actually need to push hard vs. when you need to take a break is a skill just like identifying between fashion formals for women, such as a Black Solid Dobby Slim Fit Shirt for everyday wear vs. Off Shoulder Bodysuit Top for those client pitches.

A Health Issue

Health Issue

Overworking, burnout, and stress, aren’t just buzzwords people use as a cop-out. These are words we all should be well aware of since they also involve our mental and physical health. 

When it comes to being career-oriented, being a successful individual and being a hard worker may sometimes be two separate things. An individual who has their health in check might be more productive and, therefore, even more successful over the long run.

So, it should come as no surprise that overworking may cause both, mental and health issues, which could inevitably lead to less success over time. In conclusion, when your health, productivity and goals are in check, #PowerDressing with office wear for women, such as a Navy Blue Flap Pocket Skirt, could be the only thing you need for that promotion.

In this manner, being aware of when you need to introduce some personal activities into your life might eventually lead to you becoming a better employee or businesswoman in your work life.

Different Strokes For Different Folks

What is the ideal career & personal life balance?

Depending on who you are as a person, what your likes and dislikes are, and what hobbies you partake in, your personal life may look drastically different from someone else's, and we are here to tell you that it is ok. There is no ideal or ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to having a productive personal life, and neither should we compare because very often comparison can keep us from experiencing joy in our own lives.

For instance, some people unwind better when they are away from work, whereas some find waking up in the morning, putting on their fashion formals, and heading to work rewarding in itself. For the former, sitting on a beach to unwind might be what they need, whereas the latter may just need a slight tweak in tasks and a breather to help them get rid of the fatigue.

Even when two women have the same kind of downtime on paper, they may enjoy it in completely different ways. One might prefer a cup of coffee and a book over partying on their vacation, and then you can also have people who want to do both.

Work-life balance doesn’t even need to be a vacation - it could be daily activities such as taking out time for family and exercise, which help you just be better at what you do.

Bottom line

There is no ideal career & personal life balance as long as you don’t go too far in any one direction. The important thing is to be mindful of how hard you work and understand that relieving some pressure is a very human and important thing to do. When you understand this and account for your personal downtime, it doesn’t matter how it looks from the outside. You will have achieved some level of a healthy career vs. personal life balance.

Take the steps you feel necessary to achieve YOUR perfect career & personal life balance, and putting on those fashion formals every day can become a much more rewarding experience. For some, every occasion is apt for wearing fashion formals like Not So Pink’s Side Tape Trousers because nobody can tell you how to live your life and what you should wear.
