Some people work to live, while others live to work. However, optimally there should be a balance between work and personal life. As challenging as it is for professionals to take breaks from work, it is very important for overall health and well-being to learn effective ways to disconnect. For instance, during vacations, workaholics are known for working when they should be resting. With that in mind, here are 5 easy and effective ways anyone can use to truly disconnect:

  • Prioritize and plan out your responsibilities

Planning out your work tasks and responsibilities helps you to stay on track. By completing tasks on time and efficiently not only brings peace of mind, but it also keeps you from working overtime. Moreover, you can also plan breaks within your calendar so that instead of feeling guilty for it, it simply becomes part of your to do’s.

  • Be present

While at work, your focus should be on work-related tasks, so that you can be as productive and efficient as possible. Then once out of the office, your energy should be focused on your personal life and loved ones. By taking mental breaks from both, it becomes easier to deal with challenges and preventing burnout.  

  • Don’t overcommit

It is impossible to balance work and life if you have more work than you can handle.  Know your limits and learn to be sincere with yourself and others when taking on new responsibilities. For the sake of your mental and physical health, remember that it is essential to take time to enjoy life.

  • Avoid working from home

It is key to separate where you work from where you live. Otherwise, it becomes significantly more challenging to keep both sides balanced. Workaholics, specifically, should avoid this at all costs! Otherwise, going home will begin to feel like a chore and will no longer be a familiar, relaxing place. On the same coin, productivity can take an even stronger hit when struggling with personal matters.

Still, renting out a space can become very pricey. Instead, you can save up by joining a coworking space. Fortunately, there are many coworking spaces in Barcelona, so it all comes down to choosing one. What kind of space are you looking for? Things to look out for include its proximity to metro stops and restaurants, facility equipped with enough space, communal and meeting rooms and a reception for guests or packets, and overall a philosophy that aligns with yours. Cowork Rambla Catalunya, for example checks all of those boxes off and promotes collaboration amongst its community. Choosing a workplace that fits you and has the right environment is essential for success.

  • Technology-free hobbies

Taking a break from technology is an easy way to separate yourself from your work. There will be no constant reminders of to do’s, or anyone trying to reach you for a work-related matter. Hobbies like yoga, bicycling, hiking, or walking your dog, for example, can all be done without technology.  Such activities also require complete focus, and most importantly, the use of your hands making it hard to use your phone. Lastly, seeking hobbies that do not involve technology usually leads to healthy hobbies that may improve your overall health as a result.

Life should be more than work, but it is up to us to make time for living. So this summer season as you prepare to take some time off for vacations, remember to put these tips into practice.
