3 Ways To Run Your Business When You’re Recovering From Illness 

When you operate your own company, you might believe that you can’t afford to be sick or that you just don’t have time for sickness. While you have a cold or some type of flu virus that makes you feel a bit poorly, you can frequently ‘power through’ and still work (although taking time off is far preferable since you’ll most certainly be less productive and effective if you attempt to work when you’re sick).

However, some circumstances need time away from work. If you get cancer, require surgery, or break a bone, you will not only be out of work for a while, but you may have difficulty returning to work quickly. So, whether you’re recuperating from an illness or surgery, here are some pointers to help you run your company.

5 Ways to Improve Your Work-Home Life Balance When Working From Home

There is a fine line between finding balance in your life and feeling like you are constantly working when you should be enjoying your time off. It can be challenging to find that balance because so many of our modern conveniences have the potential to make it challenging to separate work and personal life.

We’ve put together a list of 5 ways you can improve your work-home life balance by making sure that you have both at the tip of your fingers. You can try them out or implement them into your day as they seem most helpful for you! Another school of thought looks toward work-life harmony. Whichever you think, the most important thing is to incorporate a life around how you work and ensure it provides you with happiness.

Create a daily schedule

It sounds like a strange concept, but taking the time to create a working schedule can benefit your work-home life balance immensely. You should look at your day, figure out where you need to start and end, and then write it down!

You might want to start with a simple but necessary task, such as waking up and going to bed each day. Next, write down anything you have on your schedule for the day. Thirdly, write down any errands or personal tasks that take up your time throughout the day that you might be able to delegate. Finally, write down what you are doing on the weekends (if any).

Creating this type of schedule will help you improve your work-home life balance because it will give you a clear plan for each day so that nothing is left unsaid. It will also help put things in perspective for when those challenging days come where there is no room for anything else–just focus on getting through them!

Learn how to say no

One of the most challenging things to do is to say “no” when you know you should. However, that’s one of the most important skills you can learn to improve your work-home life balance.

If a project or task comes up demanding your time and attention, but it’s not necessarily a priority for your business, it is best to write “no thank you” on the bottom of the project/task and move on. If this happens repeatedly, you may need to reevaluate how much time you spend working and start saying no earlier so that you aren’t putting all of your extra energy into tasks that have little return.

Another way to practice saying no is by streamlining your schedule, so there isn’t too much on your plate. Taking on too many projects at once can be detrimental because it makes it difficult to prioritize any one thing. Being more selective about what projects you take on will allow for better planning and give yourself more control over your schedule, which will allow for better control over your work-home life balance.

Spend time with family and friends

The simplest way to improve your work-home life balance is to spend time with family and friends. Few things can make you feel better than spending quality time with the people you love. It also helps to know that your loved ones will be there for you when you need them most and that they know what’s going on in your personal life.

It’s important to remember that not everyone can spend time with their loved ones every single day. No matter what, be sure to prioritize spending time with those close to your heart.

Establish boundaries

The first step to finding balance is establishing boundaries. It’s essential to set up boundaries between work and personal life because they give you an understanding of what you need to focus on and how much time you can devote to each.

Set boundaries by defining your hours, days, and weeks dedicated only to work. Ensure that all other aspects of your life align with these hours, days, and weeks. For example, if you work Monday-Friday from 9 am-5 pm, make sure that you have enough time during the week for personal activities or downtime.

If you find it difficult to maintain these boundaries, think about how your day will be different on a typical day without work. For example, you spend 10 hours at home each week working on a blog post or doing freelance writing for clients. You could schedule a half-day off every Friday to make it easy for you to maintain a good balance in your life.

Take time for yourself

When you’re constantly working, it’s easy to get lost in work. You need to make sure that you do not forget to take care of yourself.

Try making a small break every hour or so. Take 10-15 minutes and do something for yourself. It could be anything from taking a short walk outside, going for a quick drink at your local bar, or even reading a book.
