3. Set Boundaries & workhours

5. Find time for yourself
You might be an employee at work, but outside the office you have different role.

You have to keep some times for your own. You can enjoy reading, sleeping, travelling etc. you can just spend time with daydreaming. This will help you to boost up your mood & productivity.
6. Find the job you love
Most of the people don't enjoy their job. Toxic environment, job satisfaction, lack of motivation, compatibility & passion can be the reason of imbalanced work & life. Don't hesitate to switch your job, if you feel your job draining your energies. Try to find the job that you will love, the job that will give you a complete happiness personally & professionally.
