Tips like these can help you follow Dr. Leslie Griesdorf’s lead and find a similar work/life balance in your busy schedule:

  • Take a Few Irons Out of the Fire

If you’re always busy and don’t have much of a work/life balance, it’s time to step back and look at where your time goes. Unless all of your spare time goes to social media – in which case, it’s an easy fix to stop logging in more than once a day – you’ll likely need to take a few irons out of the fire.

For example, if you’re taking yoga classes, karate classes and spinning classes while trying to manage a business, pick one fitness focus and set the others aside.

  • Focus on the Present

A perfect work/life balance doesn’t do much if you’re constantly thinking about work when you’re with family and vice versa. Learn to focus on the present and set aside thoughts about anything that happened earlier in the day or anything you have to do later.

As an extension of being present, avoid talking to friends or family when you should be working and don’t worry about work tasks when you’re relaxing.

Though Dr. Leslie Griesdorf enjoys a positive work/life balance, he still makes adjustments as life changes. You’ll have to do the same, rebalancing as things enter and leave the equation.
