Work is not life.

This is something I always share whenever I give coaching talks to companies and other institutions.

At the end of the day, we are not born just to earn and pay the bills; we are meant to enjoy fully what life has to offer beyond those.

It’s all about seeing yourself beyond what you do and already appreciating what you already have outside of your title, business or success so that you become happier in the process.

And to be able to do that, you must be able to strike a balance between your personal and professional life to prevent burn out, which can actually lead to quiet quitting at work.

While doing what is the bare minimum at work, which essentially is what quiet quitting is all about, one cannot just subscribe to that because that comes from a space of pure obligation. We all need inspiration to thrive and grow and the only way to go about that is to love what we do and try harder as we do better each and every time at the work place while having enough time for ourselves in between (and after) so to speak.

Here are 5 ways on how you can prevent quiet quitting at work:

1. Practice hard stops

You are entitled to clock out from work the moment your day is done. Don’t force yourself to become productive by merely wasting long hours at work. Knowing when to stop and respecting that decision of yours allows you to relax and clear your mind there after, which can help you become more efficient and effective at work the next day.

2. Create a list of your priorities at work and stick to them

You can control your schedule so make sure you adjust it accordingly based on what needs to be delivered based on importance. Trust me, not all deadlines have to be done all at once at the expense of your own health and well-being. Don’t forget to align your boss and your team mates so that they know what’s on your plate.It’s ok to say no when you can no longer accommodate additional work. Know your limitations. You are not a robot to begin with.

3. Have breaks in between

Relax. Recharge. Recalibrate. You don’t have to work non-stop. Listen to your mind and body. Don’t feel guilty for taking a short walk, watching parts of your favorite series or playing a game to temporarily disconnect from your grind. Having quick breaks strategically scheduled all through out the day will allow you to maximize your productivity.

4. Be 100% present in the moment

When working, focus on that. Outside of work,, let yourself be and live in the moment. Give your best always so that you don’t have any regrets.  Don’t let unrelated thoughts come into your current space. That way, you can grow in harmony with the present and allow you to focus and flourish there after.

5. Reward yourself regularly

Treat yourself to a good meal. Get that pair of shoes you want. Pamper yourself. You deserve it. Give yourself what is due. Remember, no matter how big your responsibilities are, those can never compare to the responsibilities you have towards yourself and your growth. You (and your well-being)  matter, just as much…even more actually.

I hope these tips help you re-assess the space you’re in at work.

Remember, allowing yourself to open new doors to loving your work and striking a healthy balance in life is in your hands.

Choosing yourself and your well-being is key.
