10 Tools to Help You Maintain Work-Life Balance
These tools will help you maintain work-life balance as a busy entrepreneur.
Being an entrepreneur can often feel all-consuming, but that’s all the more reason to implement work-life balance hacks to keep you from getting too overwhelmed. For every phone call, spend five minutes meditating; for every business trip, schedule time for family.
Apps and tools can simplify this balancing act by providing resources and reminders that allow you (or force you!) to step away from the office. Simply using an alarm clock to close out the day will remind you when it’s time to go home, while a messaging app like Slack gives you the confidence to relax as you know your employees can reach you in a crisis.
My executive assistant and I use Google Calendar not only for my daily work schedule but also to schedule my personal life. This ensures that I don’t overlook my personal engagements and helps make them as concrete as the business meetings. It’s easy to get busy and work through much-needed valuable time with family and friends. – Justin Lefkovitch, Mirrored Media
