Work distractions take away from other valuable parts of life, notably relationships and self-care. The health of relationships to family, friends, and self aid in confidence, motivation, and focus on the job. By shutting off work mode while at home, you are better able to recuperate and nourish the mind and body. When the mind and body are calm and nourished, you can give of yourself in a more balanced manner.
Take time to identify when work is following you home. Make a note of ideas and know you’ll tackle them the next business day. You need focus and ambition to be successful in your career, but also in your personal life. And a happy, balanced life is worth it, right?
