How to Build Healthy Habits for a Happy Work-Life Balance
If you are new to a remote working lifestyle, it can be challenging to decipher the best way to maintain a healthy work-life balance. Working from home tends to encroach upon your daily personal life, making it hard to set boundaries and stick to them. Do you have time to cleanse your skin before bedtime to help you sleep well? Do you close your laptop at the end of the day and truly sign off from work? If not, then these tips below might help you start building healthy habits that help you achieve the perfect work-life balance for you.
1. Create a morning routine
Starting your day off in a frenzy – pressing the snooze button, skipping breakfast, forgetting to apply your SPF– only leads to a day that looks much the same. That is why it’s important to follow a healthy morning routine to help you start your day off right. Beginning your day positively with a healthy breakfast, enjoying a face massage or a fitness activity can make a huge difference in the overall outlook of your day. Even if mornings are not your favorite, a few simple changes to your routine can make a big difference in your day & life.
2. Find a Zen-like workspace
Your home office doesn’t have to be as strict and formal as your corporate workspace. You can make it cozy or Zenlike, so you’ll be drawn there every day to work with passion towards your dreams.

3. Make time for your interests
Hobbies allow you to enhance your life. If you’re looking to explore a new hobby or find a creative outlet you can count on Pinterest for all sorts of fun ideas to help you discover new things about yourself, develop new skills, and develop as a person.
4. Stick to a schedule
When you work from home, it is not uncommon to see a small break turn into one or two hours. If that happens, you may end up working at night to catch up. Stick to your schedule. You’ll see how this technique lets you get more done while having a happy and healthy balanced life.
5. You don’t need to be perfect
Letting go of perfectionism is a great starting point for creating a more balanced life. For some of us, it’s easier said than done, right. After all, it is this mindset of doing every little thing perfectly that helped us get where we are today, isn't it?
6. Practice detoxing
A social media detox is highly recommended by psychologists, as it is scientifically proven to enhance mental performance and make you feel happier.
While there are many ways to detox, one of the easiest and most relaxing is with a detox bath. You will get all the benefits you’d find in a high-end spa bath at a fraction of the price and in the comfort of your own home. Here’s a quick and easy recipe you can use at home.
Coconut Detox Bath Recipe
- ¼ cup Epsom salts
- ¼ cup Pure Fiji Exotic Bath & Body Oil to a warm bath
- 10 drops of your favorite essential oils
Add all the ingredients to your bath. The Epsom salts will help to draw out toxins, while the coconut oil will help soothe dry skin.
7. Give yourself a frequent change of scenery
Walking outside for 30 minutes a day helps boost your mood because it increases blood flow and blood circulation to the brain and body. Walking is not only good for the organs, but it is also good for your skin. Go for a brisk walk every morning and in a short time, you’ll probably see your skin glow naturally.
Some experts say that three to four weeks is all the time you need to make a habit automatic. Don’t try to completely change your life in one day. It is easy to get over-motivated and take on too much. Consistency is critical if you want to make a habit stick. Take baby steps and you’ll find the balance that is right for you.
