Tips for maintaining a healthy work-life balance

Maintaining a healthy work-life balance

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - "All work and no play" can make for a pretty boring life -- it can also affect your overall well being. But sometimes maintaining a healthy work-life balance is just plain hard to do.

Amy Ritsema from OnSite Wellness in Grand Rapids joined the weekend morning show to share some tips: 

Work is a part of life for most people so it is not necessarily how you balance work and life, rather, it's how you choose to spend your time. The ultimate question is, "what is your top priority?" Is your main priority work, family, recreation?

There are times when work may take precedence, but are you allowing the stress of your job to interfere with other aspects of your life?

How do you spend your time on the weekend? How do you manage your "me time?" (This is where wellness comes into place).

Cell phones are a huge obstacle when trying to maintain work/life balance. Amy recommends:

  • No work email or calls after 6 p.m.
  • Put your phone away for 2 hours each night to spend time with your family. Lead by example.
  • Dedicate time to remove yourself from your devices for a period of time every day.
