There are certain challenges that come with trying to balance a good work/personal life, like not having enough time to spend with your partner, kids or having to reschedule social engagements with friends—all because of work.
But this doesn’t have to be a bad thing, at least not all the time. While having and maintaining relationships with friends and family and keeping any other kind of social engagement is important—so is your work.
Besides, spending time away from friends, family and your social life because of work can make you more appreciative of the time you do get to spend with them or socializing.

Yes, sometimes you have to sacrifice that precious time alone you use to collect your thoughts. This can often be necessary when you have deadlines looming or extra workload. We all know that quiet time can relieve stress, but there are situations where you have to sacrifice temporarily. Just make sure you put a limit on how long you will do that. Everybody needs to recharge and you can’t go without it forever.
In your working lifetime, it’s unlikely that you’ll never have to move because of your job—whether it’s your choice to move or part of a promotion that’s out of your control. In either case, don’t worry. Often a change in location because of work can be a good thing because of the opportunities moving away may present you.
So even if it’s far away from your friends, family and everything that is familiar to you, don’t be afraid to sacrifice your location for your job, simply because it’s not where you want to be or work. And given time, you could well grow to love the new location.
You know the saying “stuck between a rock and a hard place” right? Well, in regards to this tip, it means that if you’re asked to choose between having time away from work and working an extra shift or for longer, then chose the latter.
Mainly because, in the long run, it will make you look better in your bosses’ eyes and will show your dedication to your job—no matter how much you really wanted that time off.
