4 Ways to Set Healthy Work-Life Boundaries to Thrive In & Out of Work

Updated: Jul 15, 2022

Do you want to live a more fulfilled life where you have the time to do the things you want everyday?

Do you feel like you never have time for your hobbies? Do you want to spend more time with your loved ones? Do you wish you had more time to take care of your physical and mental well-being?

I'm here to tell you that with the appropriate strategies, you can learn to set the right boundaries with your work so that you have the time for all the things you want to do each day!

💡 Set a Hard Stop for Your Regular Work Day

You should set a time each day when you will stop working and make sure to let your coworkers know that. Knowing you have a hard stop and thus limited time to work will force you to work more efficiently and motivate you to focus more during work time. Prioritize getting the most critical work done early in the day to ensure you will have the time to finish them.

💡 Turn Off Work-Related Notifications on Your Phone

To avoid the temptation to reply to work-related messages after hours, make sure to turn-off all your work-related notifications on your phone. Not replying immediately to a message after work hours is a signal to your coworkers that you have boundaries and they will gradually learn that you are not as available outside of your work hours.
