What's A Tip That's Helped You Strike A Better Balance Between Work And Life?

Personally, working from home has been a game changer.

Between work, friends, family, dating, school, chores, hobbies, taking care of yourself, and so on, life can get super busy real fast. Balancing it all can be a serious challenge.

So if you have a handy tip or trick that's helped you strike a better balance between work and life, we want to hear all about it, please!

Maybe you have a time management tip that you swear by, like waking up extra early so you can exercise or spend time on a hobby before going to work. Starting the day with an activity that you enjoy gives you more energy, and you feel happier too.

Or perhaps you've set a boundary with your work, like letting them know that you won't be checking email after a certain time each day. Knowing that you're truly off work in those hours helps you fully relax and be present in your life.

Or maybe you've made a lifestyle tweak that frees up some time, like getting groceries delivered instead of going to the store. Even though you have to pay service fees, you're actually saving money because you're making fewer impulse purchases, and you have a little more time to do things that you really care about.

Share the work-life balance tips that work for you in the comments, and you could be featured in a BuzzFeed Community post.
