Relaxation Tips for a Busy Work-Life Schedule 

Jasmine Lee

Meditation has countless benefits to both your physical and mental health. Practicing controlled breathing can help regulate stress levels, provide a good flow of oxygenated blood, and give our minds a space to properly reflect, regulate, and process our emotions (Vantis Life). Creating a safe space for yourself and your wellbeing and incorporating meditation into your daily life is a great way to relax and help maintain a balanced work-life. 

When we are stressed, we sometimes forget to take care of ourselves in the most basic ways possible. While trying to maintain a work-life balance, make sure to eat and nourish your body with foods and to stay hydrated (Vantis Life). Resorting to unhealthy coping mechanisms, such as substance abuse, can cause long-term health concerns. 

Simply taking the time out of your day to take a break is an extremely helpful way to practice mindfulness and self-love: two concepts that should not be neglected. Taking walks, indulging in your favorite activities, taking breaks off of electronics and social media, and other various forms of self-care can be crucial to maintaining your work-life schedule (Vantis Life, Bustle). 

While we all are busy people with busy lives, it is important to have and maintain a balance between your work life and your personal life. Being too absorbed in one will have negative effects on the other. Although only a few tips and examples were mentioned, there are many other ways to relax and balance your work-life. Finding the ones that work for you and your lifestyle are crucial in determining the amount of aid that they will provide to you.
