How to Balance Business and Love Life

The question of how to combine work and love life has become a concern for an increasing number of employees of various companies. Experts nowadays note the growing need for flexible working hours and work from home.

In the modern world, it is not an easy task to successfully combine work and love life. We are faced with a choice every day: to work more or to be with loved ones, to devote time to ourselves, or to go on a date. Of course, we try to do it simultaneously, but, as a rule, some area of our life inevitably suffers. After all, it is the balance between these two most important components of our life (relationships and work) that is the key to harmony and happiness. So, how to balance work and dating?

1. Plan your every day

Try to plan your day every morning. At the same time, the list should include both professional tasks and plans for the evening, hobbies, or dates. Be in public more, meet new people. If you are afraid of not remembering everything, write down your plans in a diary or notebook. And here comes the most important point: if you have something planned, try your best to do this. For example, if you decide to go to the gym, go. What if you meet a Ukrainian bride you can have a date with?

2. Set priorities

First, answer the questions: is it important to spend so much time at work? Is your work fun? Would you like to do something else? By the way, it is also worth considering whether your love life is so cloudless and good. Do you have it at all? And if yes, is everything good in it? Do you have

unfulfilled desires (go to the gym, learn a foreign language, dance, or paint)? Make two lists. To the first, add what you would like to bring into your life, to the second – what you would like to get rid of. As soon as you decide what you want, take action.

3. Learn to say no

Responsibility is a good trait, but you can’t do absolutely everything alone. Have the courage to refuse all matters that are not in your interests. Say no without any excuses or regrets. Say no to everything that is unimportant in your life. This will allow you to concentrate on the really important things, for example, love life.

4. Save your personal time

Don’t answer business calls after the end of the working day or being on a date. Don’t take work home. Don’t spend your lunch break in front of the monitor with coffee and a sandwich. Go out for a walk, get some fresh air, meet in a cafe with a girlfriend, and so on.

5. Plan your free time

A well-balanced life can’t be imagined without recreation and entertainment, sports, romantic dinners, parties with friends, hobbies, and so on. And it doesn’t matter what you do, the main thing is that you get pleasure from it. Being on a date at least an hour, you can significantly improve your mood.

6. Be honest and frank with yourself

Are you happy? Ask this question as often as possible. Do you enjoy doing your job every day, or is it time to change something in your life? Do you really need a relationship? If yes, then why don’t you give it enough time? You always know the answers to these questions. The main thing is to listen to yourself.

7. Remember that work won’t hug you when you feel lonely

There is no need to give preference to only one area of life. But still, remember that you can’t devote 24 hours a day to your favorite job. And only we ourselves can prevent our work from becoming more important than our personal life. No matter how important this work is, it can never replace communication with loved ones. If something bothers you at work, don’t be afraid to share it with your significant other. Even if you are at the stage of dating, it will help you become even closer.
