Keeping a Good Work-Life Balance

By Adam  |  18 Oct 2015 12:00:00

If you have your own business and eCommerce website then that means that you're your own boss. So the length of time that you put into your business is entirely down to you. Do you also work a 9-5 job alongside the running of your business? It's not uncommon to do so! Especially during the early days of a business venture when there's a chance that you're going to need an extra source of income. What you need to be careful of is maintaining a good work-life balance.

 

So what is a good work-life balance? Well, I think there are a few important things to remember. If you're working 9-5 on every week day, it would be unwise to do the same on the weekends for your business. You should always have, at very least, one day of the week where you aren't doing work of any kind but just relaxing and taking part in leisure activities. It's also probably best to avoid working for more than nine hours a day, so if you want to do something for your website after a day at work, don't spend more than an hour on it. Try to make sure that you always leave time for a good amount of sleep too; ideally you'll get at least eight hours every night, but that won't always be possible. You should certainly try to avoid ever getting less than six!

 

You need time to see friends and to maintain your relationships with the people that you care about. Sure, it will be good to make a lot of money from your business, but if you neglect friends for work then you'll soon find that you are unhappy; you may even become depressed. Your health will be quite badly affected and then you won't be able to work at all. So keep up your social life and make sure you have time to relax and enjoy yourself. In some ways, this is just as important for your business as working on it directly!
